Willy misses the Queen City

Former Reds reliever, and 1999 NL Rookie of the Year, Scott Williamson still considers Cincinnati his home.

Williamson, now a member of the San Diego Padres, lives in Guilford, IN. His wife, Lisa, owns and operates an Avalon Salon & Spa in Hyde Park.

"I definitely didn't want to leave here," Williamson told me prior to tonight's game. "Out of all the cities I've played in, I enjoyed it [in Cincinnati] the most. Boston was fun because we went to a World Series. Chicago was horrible."

Williamson, who is currently on the DL with a right elbow strain, traveled with the club for the three-game series at Great American Ball Park.
