" Barry ( Larkin ) got hurt, and Pokey got a chance to play short, and he turned out to be one of the most gifted defenders I've ever been around. He has as much or more range as anyone in either league, plus he has a cannon for an arm." - Bret Boone in The Seattle Times (Larry Stone, 01/05/2005, 'M's add defensive whiz Reese', Source )

Did you know that Pokey Reese was once traded four times, to four different teams, in less than two months? On December 18, 2001, Reese was traded from the Cincinnati Reds to the Colorado Rockies . The next day, Pokey was traded from the Rocks to the Boston Red Sox for first baseman Scott Hatteberg , but the Sox did not tender him a contract, making him a free agent. On January 30, 2002, he signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates .

Besides being former Major League Players, and shortstops with the Cincinnati Reds , what do Pokey Reese, Joe Morgan , Tommy Helms , and Brandon Phillips have in common? They each won Gold Glove at second base in two-or-more consecutive seasons.
