    Your favorite Red that non-Reds-fans wouldn't much know

    Another thread that indicates the season is over...anyway, the others got me to thinking, who's my favorite Red who's not a HOFer, or even a big star that other fans would know (like Eric Davis or even Votto, currently).

    I have two. Favorite pitcher ever was Tom Browning. He was so damn good in the 80s. And a lefty like me. And my favorite hitter to watch when he had such a sweet swing for 2-3 years was Hal Morris. He'd be better remembered if he hadn't lost the batting title on the last day that one year (was it to Terry Pendleton?)

    Chris Heisey and Chris Stynes come to mind.

    I also liked Pete Schourek until we ran him into the ground.

    2000s-He is still known right now but probably in 40 years his name will be all but forgotten, Ryan Freel. He was one of the few bright shining spots during a decade of misery and his balls to the wall play is what Reds fans enjoy seeing, especially me, I'm very critical of modern day players for their lack of intensity and making the game a personal vendetta against the opposing team/players...(can you tell I'm a Cobb and Rose fan!?)

    1990s-I really liked Deion Sanders-most still remember him being a Red but he'll also be forgotten one day.

    1980s-Dave Collins-he had fire and intensity, and looked like the biggest dork on the field with those Harry Carey glasses that he wore!

    It might be forgotten that he was a Red, but as an athlete he won't soon be forgotten, if ever. One of the most famous athletes of the recent era.
