    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    So my thoughts on catching was that the manager or owner lined up the team and picked the homiest player to be the catcher since he could be hidden behind the mask. Then I saw an ad for a car dealership in the Enquirer with two men in suits - one was Pete and the other was some guy named Johnny Bench and under his name was "Catcher". WHAT?!! He was nice looking... I wonder what the pitchers looked like (I assumed that they were the best looking)... I looked upon the 70s as the decade of handsome catchers...

    OK who is on deck? I can't off the top of my head remember any number 3's. The only number two I can remember is Gary Redus and I doubt he played in any playoffs with the Reds.

    No. One game playoffs are part of the regular season.

    #3 John McNamara was the manager of the 1979 NL West Champions. But I'm having a hard time finding any pictures of him.

    Good point. 163 games is hardly 'regular'.
