The Enquirer has a big ‘ole article filled with traditional baseball quotes explaining why the Milton signing was a good move. John Erardi makes time to call those that thought the Reds overpaid for Milton “statistical geeks”, while using the fact that he won games with bad secondary numbers to say it’s a good signing.
Also, in another article that’s sure to stick in Chad’s craw…they compare Milton to Tom Browning.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
