    Quite a good team there.

    Other teams' fans would probably replace Neil Walker at second base. A certain Reds player would undoubtedly take the spot in a non-RedsZone poll.
    I don't think it works that way. Some of these guys would be rode hard and put away wet if they played for the Reds. Although I will say when its a guy on your team, there is more grace to their personality issues if they perform. If they don't, it gets brutal.

    I became a Derek Jeter fan in 2006 when the first World Baseball Classic was played. I had never really had an opinion on him before that--I realized that he was a good player and an All-Star, but that was it. I didn't give him extra credit nor did I penalize him for his New York connections.

    However, when you watch him playing on a daily basis for the team you are rooting for (in this case, Team USA), you appreciate just how good he really is. Physically, he is an outstanding player, but his mental focus is so much greater than the average player. If you liked the way Barry Larkin played, you would love Jeter. (Larkin is the better defensive player, but Jeter has proved to be more durable.)

    Derek Jeter can play for my team anytime.

    Jared Hughes, Sergio Romo, and Brian Wilson all need to be in the pen

    I don't like him.

    Definitely good bullpen additions. Papelbon?

    What's wrong with Romo?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    For 2b, I'd nominate Brandon Phillips. Although he's good to the fans, he's especially annoying otherwise (on-field antics, in interviews, etc.). However, he's a Red, so we don't really look at it that way.

    I think it's the save celebration he does every time. So obnoxious.

    "on field antics"?

    Oh right, I forgot you had some kind of weird vendetta against Brandon Phillips.

    Re: All Annoying Team

    Brian Wilson? Is that his name.. the injured closer for the Giants with the huge beard that uses nail polish, etc?

    I didn't mind the constant camera shots of him when he was actually playing and when he was good.. It was annoying as heck to see his ugly mug every 5 min during the LDS series.. the guy is injured and a nonfactor.. He's just getting camera time because he looks like a freak..
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Yeah, and he's just an obnoxious guy altogether. Tries way too hard to be some kind of "character"

    My only thing against BP is that he tries to bring attention to himself through actions that aren't baseball. I don't have a vendetta against BP, and I like the fact that he's a Red because he's a very good second baseman. But he does some annoying things, too, imo. I prefer baseball players over prima donnas.
