Re: Cincinnati Reds All-Time Nine: The Best Single Season Performances in Reds Histor
For me, E Davis 1987 easily tops Rose and Foster in the OF.
Davis was an impact glove in the OF that could change games. Davis and Foster were not. Davis best OPS (991) was similiar to Pete's (940). Granted, Rose had him on OBP, but there's no comparison to me. Davis is clearly the better player if you are just judging based on one season.
Same for Foster (1.013 OPS). Davis' glove is better, and clearly makes him the better player.
I don't know enough about Robinson to comment on him vs Davis.
If we were allowed to consider Jr's years in Seattle, he easily makes it too. But his peak year in Cincy? no.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
