ESPN.com is having a Face of the Franchise poll for each MLB team. Basically, the concept is to vote for who the most popular person is with that current organization, whether it be a player, owner, or GM. I’m a sucker for some of these polls, but when you have Juan Castro listed as one of your 5 candidates, you have to question either ESPN or your franchise. I mean c’mon! JUAN CASTRO??? Isn’t Homer Bailey more a face to this franchise than Juan Castro? Heck, Brandon Phillips isn’t even a choice! What about Aaron Harang? Nope. (Of course, would you want Harang’s droopy face being the face of the franchise?)
OK, just thought I’d vent a little bit and get that off my chest!
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
