Paul Wilson Chad Dotson 03/04/2005 2 I agree with JD’s take on Paul Wilson. And his take on Hal McCoy, for that matter. Share this:TweetPrint 2 Responses Chris 03/04/2005 I’ve always been somewhat muted in my criticism of Hal McCoy, for a few reasons: (1) He’s always been really gracious, candid, and quick to reply when I’ve emailed him; (2) He’s a friend of my family (though doesn’t know me from Adam), and the best seats I’ve ever had at a Reds game were courtesy of Hal; and (3) He lived in the next town over from where I grew up, and his son played basketball against each other (okay, he played – I sat) and we have several mutual friends. That said, today’s article was disgraceful. He did everything but lick Wilson’s…shoes (see Chad, I can keep it clean). It was really embarassing to read. bill 03/05/2005 I think the Reds were wise to resign Paul Wilson. He may not be a traditional #1, but he is an asset to the organization. Wilson, like Barry Larkin, is a positive role model to the younger ballplayers. Plus, the ballclub doesn’t have better options to place on the mound. WasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t it just a couple years ago the Reds were deciding between having Jimmy Haynes or Joey Hamilton start the first ballgame at Great American Ball Park? IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll take Milton, Wilson and Ortiz over the RedsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ recent top end of the rotation. And what’s with the beef with Hal? Write him a letter/email and give him the opportunity to respond to your claims. I find it somewhat of a disgrace to post such dribble behind someone’s back, on a little seen blog. Other than that, I ‘m enjoying the site. I do hope to see more original and individual perspective/feedback on the ballclub, and less commentary on the work of others(McCoy, Fay, etc).
