As a Cincinnati Reds fan I don't have much to cheer for tonight with only one player, Edinson Volquez, on the roster.
That left me to look forward to the introduction of living Hall of Famers who were on hand for the pre-game festivities at Yankee Stadium. Problem was, only Tony Perez from the Big Red Machine that swept those damn Yankees in the 1976 World Series was on hand.
No Joe Morgan at second base alongside Ryne Sandberg. No Johnny Bench behind the plate with Gary Carter. What gives? I'll have to find out, but Morgan's absence is especially disappointing since he was on hand the night before for the ESPN-televised Home Run Derby.
Suspend the bum from the Hall for the rest of the season and replace him with my all-time favorite Red, No. 28, Vada Pinson.
