"First thing they did was trade Tony Perez before the '77 season. They figured that Dan Driessen was ready to be the everyday first baseman (and he had a very good 1977 season) but the general feeling among players on that team is that they lost a lot when Perez was traded. For one thing, he was the most respected player on that team. And for another, I think the general feeling was that when Perez was traded that management no longer cared about keeping the team together. I'm not sure how any of us can measure psychological effects, but there certainly was a feeling among the Reds players -- even 30-plus years later -- that something fundamentally changed when they traded Perez." -- Joe Posnanski (interviewed by Rob Neyer) Ross Gload = Tony Perez, of course.
