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.

  1. 1. Wonder why no one has repeated as minor league POTM this year?

    2. How has Jay Bruce, the probable minor league player of the year, not won this award at least once? Consistent excellence, I guess, as opposed to one monster month.
