Dodgers’ Reds Killers

Russell Martin
I’m starting a new feature. Lots of players are considered “Reds Killers” – Bill Hall and Lance Berkman come to mind – but who are the true Reds Killers for each team? And who do the Reds actually own (anti-Reds Killer)? I’ll roll out new teams’ Reds Killers as the Reds play them.

The Dodgers have quite a few Killers. Even Delwyn Young in five ABs.

REDS KILLERS

Russell Martin .396 (19-for-48)
Jeff Kent .312 (159-for-510), 23 HR, 103 RBI, 98 runs
Rafael Furcal .324 (68-for-210), 11 HRs, 47 runs
Andruw Jones .298 (97-for-326), 31 HRs
Nomar .329 (28-for-85)
Delwyn Young 1.000 (5-for-5)
Brad Penny 7-2, 3.00 ERA, 59 Ks in 69 innings (which is good for him)
Jonathan Broxton 1-0, 1.00 ERA, 11 Ks in 9 innings
Takashi Saito 4 saves in 4 games finished, 0.00 ERA in 6 1/3 innings, 8 Ks

ANTI-REDS KILLERS

Mark Sweeney .224 (15-for-67), 14 Ks
Joe Beimel 5.46 ERA, 5 HRs in 28 innings
Esteban Loaiza 1-5, 5.06 ERA in 9 starts

    Really like exposing the designated REDS KILLER. seems like there is one on every team * sigh*

    If there were a Reds Killer lifetime achievement award, it would be called the Al Lieter award.

    yeah, I had a tough time coming up with just one Dodger … no one stood out head and shoulders … I guess maybe Andruw Jones … 31 HRs is A LOT in 326 ABs. I have a feeling the Astros will have one guy that stands out …
