2010 Consolidated List of Non-roster Invitees

To add to the craziness the Astros tried to get Acta but (to my relief) he turned down their offer. (more…)

I was just sitting and thinking and all the sudden Pokey Reese popped into my head. I’m a long time fan of the Reds and because of that I’m generally a fan of any Red or former Red. So where did Pokey Reese go? He was never amazing, but he always struck me as someone who would be in the big leagues for a long time. Then again I was 12 years old when he broke into the bigs.
