    Danny Tartabull
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I’m surprised Aquino wasn’t on Bruce’s original list.

    How did the reds give up on Didi?

    They traded him for a great hitter for a pennant run.

    I might give you that one. Sure could have used him over the last few years.

    BTW, Reds did not give up on Hal Mcrae too soon. He turned out to be everything they expected which was not as valuable as having a guy hitting about .360 in the minors by the name of Griffey.

    Someone at baseball-reference.com has a sense of humor. For O'Neill it reads: Bats: Left. Throws: Left. Kicks: Left.

    For anyone out there that doesn't understand that reference: The Greatest Play in Baseball History.

    Wow. There is even a link to that play. I'm liking BB Ref much more.
