    My concern as well.

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

    Re: Who would you LEAST like to see as a Red?

    I really didn't like Deion Sanders before he was a Red when he was Prime Time and Neon Deion and all that crap. I mean, *really* didn't like.

    I loved him when he was on the Reds. Fastest player I've ever seen.

    I went back to not liking him post-Reds. No longer a severe distaste, but I'm just not a fan of his persona.

    I think I could put up with any player if he was on the Reds. It's the name on the front of the uni, not the back.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    There's rumors that Zod plays a mean centerfield. His UZR, some have claimed, is 100 per year and always catches home runs. He can play on my team anytime.

    EDIT: Just researched Zod's WAR. Dude is putting up 65 WAR seasons.

    Carp, Yadi, Nyjer for the obvious picks... I don't want that clubhouse culture, whether it wins or not...

    Off the beaten path? Carlos Marmol is more stress than I can handle...

    On the same line of thought but a blast from the past? Danny Graves...

    Oh, and I hate Lohse too... Thanks for stinking it up here, and being good in StL... Turncoat...

    I keep seeing sentiment along these lines, but I think one thing the Reds have capitalized on is getting rid of the "rooting for laundry" mindset. There's definitely a marketable continuity and character to this team that, as far as I can tell, has piqued the interest of the casual fan beyond what a winning ballclub filled with spare parts would have.

    Rafael Betancourt. I don't care about his performance, his slooooooooooowwwwwww pre pitch shenanigans make him unwatchable. I think hitters fall to sleep or are hypnotized, so they forget they are even hitting by the time he delivers a pitch.

    Ehhh, I suppose. I understand what you're saying and I really like the current team too. But the Dunn/Griffey teams petered out when it came to attendance. Winning trumps all and gets the casual fan in the ballpark. Losing is like a slow leak in a balloon.

    My order of things is:

    1. win with good guys
    2. win with bad guys
    3. lose with good guys
    4. lose with bad guys

    I'd swap 2 and 3...but I'm weird that way. I don't like rooting for people I dislike.

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

    I can understand Reds fans not liking Carpenter and Molina but Holliday? He's not exactly outspoken and hasn't done really anything jerkish.

    I believe Big Klu has a long standing issue that goes beyond Matt's tenure in St Louis.
