    Birthdays: 5/26

    Reds:

    Jason Bere (41) -A Red in '98 and '99...Currently works in the Cleveland front office.

    Rob Murphy (52) -In 1986, Rob was 6-0, with a 1.72 ERA...I remember Pete Rose always liked having him around because he supposedly knew a lot about horse racing.

    Dann Bilardello (53) -When you're knocked out of your starting spot by Brad Gulden, that ain't good...

    Ed Crosby (63) -A Red in 1973. As so many BRM members did, he fathered a big leaguer- in his case it's Bobby Crosby... No career homers, one career steal in 750 PAs.

    Other:

    Darrell Evans (65) -Often cited as an underrated great player...His eyesight was so bad (20/600 and 20/800) that he said that without contacts he couldn't see the pitcher from home plate...He was technical advisor to a company that marketed a baseball MMORPG called "Ultimate Baseball Online" that ran from 2003 to 2008. I never heard of it; did anyone here know about it?

    Of course the most important of all--reds1869.

    I always wish that I shared my birthday with more interesting players. The only current player of note is Ben Zobrist.

    What?

    Dann Bilardello is a legend.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
