With Barry Larkin and the rest of Reds Nation waiting to hear if he gets into the Hall Of Fame, I wanted to see what pitchers he did well against. I also added which ones struck him out the most and hit him the most. I have said many times on many different blogs that I really think this is the first big news for the Cincinnati Reds in 2012. 2012 will go down as the year Barry Larkin made it into the Hall of Fame and the Reds won the World Series!
