This series in St. Louis has caused me to ponder on yet another irrelevant topic. Over the years, the Reds have faced a number of opponents that I loved to watch play: Greg Maddux, Barry Bonds, Adam Dunn (unfortunately), Albert Pujols, and, going a little further back, Mike Schmidt. These are guys that I always wished the Reds could acquire, for obvious reasons.

On the flip side of that coin, there really haven’t been any opponents that I have genuinely disliked. I’ve been trying to think of some, but none are coming to mind. Until now….

I really, really can’t stand the St. Louis pitcher Chrissy Carpenter. That guy kills me.

What about you? Is there one guy on another team that just gets under your skin?
