Today almost got away from me, but I still haven't missed a day....


Laynce Nix (31) -Career OBP is .288. Just sayin'...

Mark Portugal(49) -Pitched for the Reds in 95-96, going 14-14. His glory year was '93 with Houston.

Joe Adcock - Came up with the Reds but couldn't budge Klu off of 1B and was eventually traded to Milwaukee in a rare 4-team swap (the Reds only got cash and Rocky Bridges out of the deal). One of two players on today's list to hit four homers in a game (Delahanty was the other).


Marco Scutaro (36) -Not much range left at his age, I would think.

Jim Ray Hart (70) -A fine hitter who once hit for the cycle, but a problematic fielder.

Jim Perry (76) -Not as celebrated as his brother Gaylord, but nearly as good. His son has been successful on the PGA tour.

Bill Terry -The last National Leaguer to hit .400.

Ed Delahanty -You probably know this story; was kicked off a train for being drunk and disorderly, then fell/jumped to his death off a railroad bridge.
