    How did I forget about Marty Cordova?
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Re: From Rookie of the Year to Nothing Special

    How can Eric Karros or Chris Sabo be considered "nothing special"?

    Just my two cents.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    And if anyone really wants to scratch what Reds players have juiced he's one of the guys I'd have to look at, based on his game, his quirky behavior and the time he played.
    Yep. I'll throw out another name that'll surely derail this thread:

    Barry Larkin, 1996.

    As for RoYs, here they are:

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/awards/roy_rol.shtml

    What strikes me is that the NL RoY had a very solid run 1981 - 1993. Jerome Walton in 1989 turned out to be a dud. Sabo's probably the 2nd weakest name in that stretch. Otherwise, all of the NL RoY winners from Valenzuela in 1981 to Piazza in 1993 all had very good to great careers.

    Don't think I've seen Pat Listach mentioned, yet.

    I thought I mentioned him in the first post. Maybe not though.

    What does Barry Larkin in 1996 have to do with ROYs?

    He's throwing his name out as a possible Reds steroid user.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    That's sounds like a very good career.

    I'm going Dontrelle Willis though I really wish he would get it together...can't help but like the guy... Geo Soto was a good one I hope...probably a good guy but he DOES play for the freakin' cubs.

    If it wasn't for Ryan Howard Willy Taveras would be dominating this thread.
