The Reds received Ben Jukich along with Marcus McBeth. He’s 24, a LHP and was pitching high A ball. He’s been a starter this season, reliever last season. Strikes out a fair amount of guys, but gives up a lot of hits and walks. He’s a non-prospect.
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.
