    The only player needed to commemorate 24 days left. Doggie Perez

    Re: Official 2012 Countdown Until Opening Day

    A lot to choose from today to celebrate 23 days. First up, do you see the resemblance between Hal Morris and another young first baseman who will lead the Reds to their first World Series in way too long?


    Will we see another Red hit 45 homers like Greg Vaughn did in 1999?


    Am I the only one who remembers Jason LaRue fondly?


    And I really wanted to put my hometown boy in here, but I couldn't find a picture of him that showed the number. Just trust me that Doug Flynn has a 23 hidden under there.

    Lee May is the 23 for me. The Big Bopper from Birmingham.

    How many days, World Series Champion, Dan Driessen?


    In this photo, Hatch got tired of being first base coach.


    Ugh.

    Ah, 17 days. Two-and-a-half weeks. To celebrate, here's the man a rec-speckled 5-year-old WildcatFan wanted to be when he grew up. He of the golden voice, Chris Sabo.



    Aaron Boone, one of my five favorite Reds of all time.



    And finally, so many great pictures of Javy Valentin to choose from. I picked this one.

    16 days, ladies and gentlemen. Speaking of gentlemen, he of the no batting gloves, Ron Oester.



    Love this photo of Reggie.



    And just in case you needed a refresher on how far this franchise has come in the last five years, I give you Todd Hollandsworth.

    15 days. I've never seen much video of the Big Red Machine, but I've always heard about George Foster's sweet and punishing swing.



    Be honest, who here remembered that Barry Larkin wore 15 as a rookie?



    Didi looks like the next Brandon Phillips in this play. Oh yea, Wilson Valdez is there too.

    Two weeks. We only have one more Thursday without baseball left.

    10 is Sparky. No one else need apply.
