    Who would you LEAST like to see as a Red?

    The Yankees signing Youk has my cousin, who is a Yankees fan, threatening to jump off the deep end, saying he's done as a Yankees fan, Youk is the one guy he could never root for, he can't believe his team would do this to him, yada yada yada.

    I'm not sure EVERY Yankees fan shares his level of disdain for this move, but needless to say, he's sickened.

    And it got me to thinking: is there one player you could just not stand to see in a Reds uniform? Now, this doesn't just have to be present. How about all-time? Is there a player, or players, past or present that would literally make you throw up if you had to watch them in a Reds uniform?

    A few guys come to my mind: present day, Chris Carpenter. He's a great pitcher, and a hell of a competitor. But I couldn't stand to root for him after all that's transpired.

    Other guys: Nyjer Morgan, Bill Hall, Chipper Jones (I respect his greatness now. As a young teen, I hated him and the Braves with a passion), Bobby Valentine as a manager (because he broke my 14 year old heart in 1999), and last, but not least, Gerald Laird. Why not Yadier, you say? At least the dude can play. Laird was a fat tub of lard yelling from the bench when he played about every 20th game.

    Thoughts? Anyone you'd like to add?

    I'll second Nyger Morgan. I can't even imagine being forced to watch his act every night. That's really about it.

    I third Nyjer Morgan. I lost the small shreds of respect I had for him when he went in elbow high into Hanigan's throat.

    Nyger Morgan will go down, for me, as the most talented player to never do anything in the majors. He seems to have had immense talent, but never applied himself to learn the skills needed to really fulfill himself. It's too bad too. He could have been very, very good.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Talented in what way? I can't imagine him ever projecting as more than a slap hitting center fielder with decent speed, and at this point, that's pretty much the niche he's carved out for himself.

    My concern as well.

    Other than that, I'll support virtually anyone donning a Reds uniform.

    If Crissy did that he would get punched in the face.

    I'd put up with FCB and Gallagirl if they could win us a world series.

    true fact: Jim Coombs may drink like a fish, but his tolerance is such that he's never been drunk.
