http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/CIN/1988.shtml Hmmm, Sabo, Davis or Dibble. But I really can't remember back that far and would have to compare the year befores stats. Dibble because of his "temper", davis cuz of the power and I feel Sabo had one year where he came in huge out of nowhere and then was smited with injuries. I'd go Sabo.

This is the type of guy they need to call to testify before Congress in order to get the complete picture. Bringing in players will get you headlines, but the players are in a precarious position that is not conducive to getting to the bottom of the issue.

Is it Dave Concepcion?

I will say, this if is was Davis...that would be interesting. I never remember him as being big, I do remember him having cancer, and a ton of heath problems though.

Yeah he was that tall lanky "big" type ala Strawberry. he could come in 25 lbs heavier and not really show it too much.

Sabo was caught with a corked bat. Doesn't this fact remind you of any other steroid user and cheater?

:nandrolone
"Look for the millionth time, I only use the corked bat to entertain the fans. It was just an honest mistake..."

Makes me think Crede should have gotten on the Juice before all this happened to speed up that swing of his.
