    Birthdays -9/7

    Reds:

    Darren Bragg (42) -Hit .191 for the 2004 Reds, which had just the effect you'd expect on his career.

    Wade Rowdon (51) -Middling 3b prospect who never really blossomed.

    Rick Sweet (59) Getting too old to get a big league shot? I hope not.

    Reggie Otero -Fred Hutchinson's 3b coach; I think he's the one that had the fistfight with Johnny Temple.

    Others:

    Mark Prior (31) -One of the great "what if"s.

    Jason Isringhausen (39) -Almost moved to the Reds section of this post.

    Joe Rudi (65) -Was underrated for a long time, then everybody started talking about how underrated he was to the point where he almost became overrated. At any rate, he was very good, but not great.

    Performed quite well in the 72' WS. Unfortunately.

    Rudi and Tenace for '72 and Brooks Robinson for '70 earned the F. middle initial from REDS fans.

    Yep, he made a leaping catch against the wall that basically won game 7 for the A's.

    Wasn't Prior trying to comeback with someone this season? I assume it didn't wok out.

    I remember that play. Dennis Menke hit the ball. IIRC, it was in game 2.

    Dave Foutz- Dave was a star back in the 1880s when men were men and went both ways (on the baseball field, I mean)...How many players do you know of that led their league at various times in wins, saves and ERA, and also drove in more than 100 runs twice, scored more than 100 runs twice, and stole more than 40 bases three times?...His nickname was "Scissors"; either because he was skinny or because it was dangerous to run with him.
