Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #35

For a number in the mid 30s, it's surprising #35 hasn't done more damage. Huge potential here. 5. Johnny Klippstein (5.2 WAR) Klippstein is the token "guy from the Redlegs era you probably...

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #36

Late night edition! 5. Rolando Roomes (0.5 WAR) Roomes has a lot of good things going in his favor. Other than a really nice season in '89 where he played a lot of games in the outfield, he has a...

I think you all know where this is going. 5. Will McEnaney (-0.8 WAR) McEnaney broke in with the Reds as a 22-year-old in 1974, just in time to help the bullpen of the Big Red Machine teams. '75...

We're caught up. 43 days left. 5. Tim Layana (0.3 WAR) Tim Layana pitched for the Reds in 1990 and 1991, with '90 being his far better of the two seasons. He put up a 3.49 ERA in 55 relief...

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #44

Ed. Note: This is a day late, as I wasn't able to get in front of a computer yesterday. Double time today! And this is as good of a debate as there is here, probably. Apologies to Mike Leake, who...

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #45

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #48

One our stronger lists so far, and a healthy argument as to who should be first. What do you think? 5. Tim Birtsas (0.2 WAR) World Series winner alert. Tim Birtsas came to the Reds from Oakland,...

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #49

Under 50 days left. And more and more choices every day. This one was actually a bit closer than I figured it would be. Let's go. 5. Dennys Reyes (0.3 WAR) I remember the Dennys Reyes era well,...

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #52

#52 is surprisingly thin. Let's go. 5. Brian Reith (-0.6 WAR) Reith had two stints with the Reds, one where he was a starter in 2001, and a second stint from 2003 to 2004 where he wore #52. He...

Opening Day Countdown: Quintessential Red #57

These numbers in the high 50's are kind of funny. There seems to be a clear leader/winner every day we do this, but other than that guy, there's a whole lot of bleh. Oh well, here we go. Honorable...
