    Birthdays- 8/2

    Reds:

    Lloyd Merriman- OF in the late '40s and early '50s. I got nothing on him.

    Red Ames- Warren, Ohio native who had his best years with the Giants before coming to the Reds in the same trade that netted Heinie Groh. His curve was considered one of the outstanding pitches of the era.

    Others:

    Huston Street (28)

    Grady Sizemore (29)

    Colby Lewis (32)

    Tim Wakefield (45)

    Bombo Rivera (59) -Not much of a player, but a great name...fun to say out loud. Go ahead- say it.
    "In baseball, you don't know nothin'"...Yogi Berra

    Bombo. Bombo Rivera. Bombo Rivera. Hey, that was fun!
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Boy, not a lot of meat on some of these early ones... It's kind of embarrassing.

    You were just getting your 'sea legs'. Patience...the meatier ones are just on the horizon.
