    Speaking of the screwball, I threw that on occasion as well. Oldog75, do you remember what Reds' lefty from the '70's specialized in the screwball. He came over to us in a trade with the Padres.

    I remember doing my homework and watching Mark McGuire break the record. It was really exciting for me at the time.

    The tops for me was Jay Bruce clinching the NL central in 2010. I was elated.

    I seem to remember it being a grand slam.
