Lee Smith Reggie Sanders David Wells Jeff Conine Royce Clayton Todd Walker Mike Stanton Of these players, Sanders is the only one anyone would consider a Red. Sanders was drafted by the Reds in the 1987 draft and played his first eight Major League seasons for Cincinnati. For the most part, the others were all with the Reds towards the end of their careers, long after their most effective seasons. Smith was traded to the Reds in 1996 for a portion of the season. The Reds traded for Wells to help them down the stretch in their division-winning 1995 campaign.

How will the careers of Frazier, Cozart, and Mesoraco play out?

It wasn't too long ago when Reds fans were anxiously awaiting the arrival of Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and Johnny Cueto to the big leagues. After all, these guys provided a glimmer of hope in a baseball-crazed city that hadn't sniffed the playoffs since 1995. The trio eventually arrived, and as expected, helped get baseball's oldest professional franchise back to the...

by: Jon Davis Staff Writer #2 Robert Stephenson RHP Next up on the list is 2011 first round pick Robert Stephenson. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound righty was drafted out of Alhambra High School in California and will be only 20 years old by the start of next season.

Not entirely prospect related, but could be in a sense...

Appreciating Reggie

During last year’s Hall of Fame discussions, I wrote about how, despite much bigger and better names on the ballot, Bill Mueller was my own personal favourite player on the list. In a similar vein, this year’s historically stacked ballot means a number of excellent players are going to little to no attention in the voting.
