Found December 16, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
December 16th hasn't been a real good day in a historical sense for the Redlegs. They have made several notable transactions on this day, most of which didn't pan out they way I'm sure they had hoped. Here's a brief synopsis of each of those aforementioned deals: December 16, 1976 - The Reds trade Tony Perez and Will McEnaney to the Expos for Woodie Fryman and Dale Murray.

Although Driessen nearly matched Tony's offensive stats in the period between 1977 and 1983, the leadership of Perez was sorely missed. Soft-spoken, unpretentious and always smiling, Perez was the voice of reason in the Reds clubhouse, frequently diffusing the tense situations that developed on a highly competitive ball club full of ego-driven stars.

Along the way he managed to save a man from choking to death, belted a home run without using his...

A Reds all-decade team for the 1990's

Since we're currently nestled in between that terrible period between last season and next, and since there isn't much else to write about that is Reds-related, I've decided to put together a list of the best Reds players from the 1990's. I have compiled a full, 25-man roster in which I feel to be the best collection of Cincinnati players to wear the red and white...

Odd Man Out?

Coming off a 97 win campaign the Reds have not been idle this offseason in attempts to improve their chance for winning a championship next year. The first move they made was retaining closer Jonathan Broxton with a free agent deal that will release Aroldis Chapman to join the rotation. This year's rotation was superb and Chapman's move will push Mike Leake outside of the top five.
