    Birthdays: 1/20

    Reds:

    Bill Scherrer (54) -At 6'4", "Rags" was a fun pitcher to watch. He has three World Series rings with three different teams: with the 1984 Tigers as a pitcher, with the '97 Marlins as a scout, and with the '05 White Sox as an assistant to the GM.

    Jesse Gonder (76) -Third-string catcher in the early 1960s. The Rule 5 draft must have been different back then: Jesse was drafted by the Pirates when he had almost 700 big-league ABs.

    Others:

    David Eckstein (37) -Seemingly retired, he worked in 2011 as an assistant to his wife Ashley, and actress who appeared in "Blue Collar Comedy" and as a voice actress on the "Clone Wars" animated show.

    Ozzie Guillen (48) -Ozzie's three sons are named Ozzie Jr., Oney, and Ozney. With the cast of characters they've assembled, the Marlins should be a lot of fun to follow this season.

    Camilo Pascual (78) -Pitched briefly for the Reds but the bulk of his career was as a high-strikeout, high-walk pitcher in Minnesota and Washington. Known as "Little Potato" because his older brother Carlos (who also pitched in the majors) was called "Potato". As a scout, he signed Jose Canseco and Cincy's own Miguel Cairo.

    Earl Smith -Pretty much forgotten now, but a catcher with a career line of .303/.374/.432 ain't too bad. Old-school tough guy who once tried to fight Babe Ruth. Nicknamed "Oil" because of the way he pronounced his name.

    Scherrer was also weighed in at 170 which made him look pretty much like a scare crow.

    I always though he looked a little like "Big Bird," from Sesame street.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    An Ozzie quote:

    "In the eighties and nineties, people made a lot of money and built houses. The first thing they put in their houses was a gym. In my house, the first thing I built was a bar. The second thing I built was another bar."
