    I was wrong about....

    Saw this post in the ORG and thought it was a good one.

    I was wrong when I got excited the reds acquired Eric Milton and/or Paul Wilson

    Junior. But I think everyone got fooled by that one.

    I was wrong about Homer Bailey: I thought he would be a elite power pitcher
    I was wrong about Ken Griffey Jr: Disaster trade set up the lost decade
    I was wrong about Sean Casey: Never became the hitter I thought
    I was wrong about Danny Graves: I thought he could become a starting pitcher

    Tom Seaver - thought for sure he would bring a couple W.S.
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Kurt Stillwell beating out Barry Larkin for starting SS.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    Eddie Milner being a Gold Glove CF with power and speed.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    I thought Chris Heisey would hit 30 home runs this year if he was given enough playing time.

    Wow, I thought I was only one who thought this back then.
    From same time period, I also thought Brad "The Animal" Lesley would be a dominant closer for years to come.

    -This year's team being a WC competitor and not division, really. I figured we would lose the division by 3-5 games and get one of the two WC slots

    -Griffey acquisition being the start of a new "era" of Reds baseball in a good fashion

    Alonzo. Thought he would hit .300 this year. Not a power hitter so Petco shouldn't hurt him, as Welsh pointed out the large field spreads out the defenders to make it easier for a line-drive hitter to find gaps.

    Perhaps batting cleanup gave him BP-syndrome, and he will flourish further down in the order.

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    Alonso will be playing 1B for the REDS and batting 4th one year from today. - Kingspoint, July 9, 2009
