Re: Is George Foster worthy of the Hall of Fame?
I think it's safe to say that with four Hall of Famers already associated with the Big Red Machine (Bench, Morgan, Perez and Sparky) there will be at most two others eventually inducted - Dave Concepcion, who seems to have a legitimate shot at election by the veterans committee, and Pete Rose, whose only chance at the Hall will probably come posthumously, if then.
Since that era ended (with the Perez trade after the '76 season, I guess) we've likely only seen other three or four future Hall of Famers in Reds uniforms - Seaver, who's in, and Larkin and Griffey Jr. , who will be.
And maybe Lee Smith.
ADDITION: Texasdave notes I missed another Red from the 80s who will receive strong consideration for the Hall, John Franco, with 424 career saves.
