    Birthdays: 12/1

    Reds:

    Reggie Sanders (44) -Hit 20 or more homers in a season for six different teams- a record. Does anyone else remember when he missed a lot of time when he became sick after painting the interior of his house with exterior paint?

    Herm Winningham (50) -Has an odd middle name: "Son". Came to Cincy in the trade that sent Tracy Jones to Montreal; hey, anything that gets Tracy out of town I'm in favor of.

    George Foster (63) -In 1981, Lawrence Ritter and Donald Honig included George in their book "The Best 100 Baseball Players of All Time". I'm guessing they regretted it later.

    Cal McLish (86) -Full name Calvin Coolidge Julius Caesar Tuskahoma McLish.

    Others:

    Larry Walker (45) -Not too many people are comparing Jay Bruce to him any more, but I haven't given up yet...

    Cookie Lavagetto -Known for breaking up Bill Bevans' 1947 World Series no-hitter; also the first manager in Minnesota Twins history.

    Walter Alston -Probably the sanest man to be a great manager.

    Ed Reulbach -Pitched two shutouts on the same day in 1908; let's see somebody break THAT record...

    Don't forget Dan Schatzeder, LOL

    The only reason I know that is that it's my mom's birthday and he was born in the same year. Once I saw that on a baseball card, it was something I'll remember.

    Anyway, happy birthday to my mom

    Herm Winningham also (I believe) holds a record with 3 triples in one game.

    Box score
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Sanders had a very nice career, but I just can't find it in my heart to forgive him for the 1995 NLCS... I think he just struck out again...

    Adding Marty Marion slick fielding shortstop of the Cardinals. He, among others, will be considered for induction by the HoF's pre-integration era committee. This will happen 12-2 and 12-3.

    In my humble opinion, he is not really Hall of Fame material...but then I didn't think that Bill Mazeroski was either. What do you think?
