The Blog Above Replacement a daily look http://www.ky-oo32.com/cameron-artispayne-jersey-c-1_4.html at the Reds, their minor leagues and whatever else is on the mind of Enquirer Reds beat writers, C. Trent Rosecrans and Zach Buchanan. You can follow them on Twitter (@ctrent and @ZachENQ), Facebook (C. Trent Rosecrans and Zach Buchanan) and Instagram (ENQReds).
It’s Friday and that means it’s mailbag time.
I’d say there are two choices – Barry Larkin and Marty Brennaman.
The Great Eight was that, but we’re talking a Hall of Famer here and a winner of the Hall of Fame’s Frick Award.
Larkin was not only a Hall of Fame player, he was a noted leader and a native Cincinnatian to boot. He checks off all the boxes for me (and to me, the perfect pose is from Michael Keating’s picture from the 1990 World Series with Larkin’s hands in the air celebrating the last out shown above.)
And then there’s Marty. He’s the Reds to several generations of fans, as much a part of the 1990 team as the 1975 and 1976 team. I could see it being done to commemorate his final year, which hopefully won’t be for another 20 years or so. The question is, what hair style do we get?
It's good. I think he can be here the rest of the year and has a good chance to be here for a while. A recent Baseball America poll of International League coaches and managers named him the best reliever in the International League.
Well, I don’t like to read too much into http://www.ochomesnloans.com/curtis-samuel-jersey-c-1_11.html two games good or bad, but he at least has the floor of a fourth outfielder because of his mix of power and speed.
He’s had two pretty good days and there is certainly talent there.
I was born in 1975. I didn’t see Davey Concepcion in his prime. Many of those who did, say he belongs. Me? I didn’t see that.
I only see the numbers, and the numbers don’t back that up.
I am a Hall of Fame voter, but Concepcion wouldn’t be on my ballot, that’s up to the Eras Committees, what was once referred to as the Veteran’s Committee. The people who complain about the writers and their election results certainly haven’t been paying attention to the veteran’s committee, which used to be rife with cronyism and now is exclusionary, having not elected a living player since Bill Mazeroski in 2001.
So to answer your question, I don't see him getting in.
Now this is my kind of question.
I’m going to Atlanta this weekend and you Jaelen Strong Kids Jersey can pretty much go anywhere in Krog Street Market and find an amazing meal. I’ll also go to bat for Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q.
Since we do most of our travel in the NL Central, that’s my wheelhouse, so I’ll do my top picks for each NL City.
• Pittsburgh – Gaucho. It may be my favorite place in baseball.
