This Day in Reds History: Cincy sends Marquard packing

Rube Marquard, unknown date - http://upload.wikimedia.org/

On this day in 1922, the Reds acquired righty Jack Scott from the Braves in exchange for Hall of Fame pitcher Rube Marquard and infielder Larry Kopf. This sounds like a bad trade for the Reds, but Marquard was nearing the end of his career and was never all that great in the first place. He was a good pitcher to be sure, though he really wasn't any better than someone like Bronson Arroyo. Marquard is in the Hall of Fame, because he made up some stories in The Glory of Their Times.

Kevin Mitchell is Batman and RoastBeefKazenzakis each earned a point last Wednesday.

In addition to Herm Wehmeier, two other Reds pitchers have led the league in walks multiple times. Who are they? Each pitcher is worth a point. One is pretty easy, and the other is pretty difficult.
