    The only time Reds and Cubs fans have agreed is when we all booed Tony Larussa.

    I dont think the handful of Cardinal fans within earshot of me enjoyed that too much haha. This induction ceremony has been really well done to this point. The Santo video was great.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Larkin's speech was a Reds fanboy's dream.

    I was enthralled; it was a walk down Main Street, Cincinnati, from 1972 or so to the year 2000.

    It was really cool that 2 guys were inducted who were all in for the towns they played for- Santo was more of a Chicago guy than anyone who came from there, and Larkin paid tribute to all the Cincinnati guys- from Rose to Parker to even the Stowe family and Buddy Bell.

    It's obvious the effect Eric Davis had on Larkin, and the love he has for Eric. It did not occur to me until tonight that he never mentioned Junior a single time. I have no problem with that, it's just interesting to me, since Lark was stressing the Cincinnati angle. And Junior went to the same high school Barry did- Moeller.

    Larkin's and Griffey's years together weren't really the best of times. Understandable he didn't mention him. I'm trying to blot those years from my memory as well.

    As am I; like I said, it's just an interesting observation.

    Barry Larkin delivered for 19 years in a Reds uniform.

    Today, he delievered again.


    His speech was very Barry Larkin. Classy, humble, and not about himself.

    Congrats, Barry. I'm a very proud Reds fan today.

    Selig was booed pretty heavily too. I wonder how much of that was from Reds fans due to Pete?

    I think a lot. Would have loved to see Bud's face when Barry was thanking Pete.

    Sounds like it was an awesome day in Cooperstown for our guy Barry! Thanks for sharing some of your thoughts and experiences here and I look forward to seeing your pictures.

    Someday I will go to the induction when Pete or Junior or Davey or another Red gets inducted. It just has to be when I'm retired and have the time. And Barry was Barry. Just fantastic.
