    Redszone's Favorites

    The threads about Jay Bruce and Devin Mesoraco got me thinking-- just who is the most popular Red on Redszone? Who's least likely to receive a Redszone high five?

    I'm fairly certain Votto would rank number one, but, beyond that, it'd be really interesting to see who the board likes best.

    I'm not asking who's best or better. I'm asking who you like best. This is purely a popularity contest.

    Rank 'em, Redszone! Include the manager, pitching coach, hitting coach, and others if you'd like. (I'm guessing two of those three would rank near the bottom of the barrel.)

    If someone would like to make this an actual poll, similar to the prospects, that would be awesome. We could include minor leaguers as well, if we need to. (That in itself would be interesting.)

    Besides Votto, I'm a big fan of Todd Frazier.

    Re: Redszone's Favorites

    From a baseball perspective, Votto is my guy.
    From a who seems to be an overall great guy perspective, Bruce is my guy.
    From a who would be a cool guy to hang out with, Arroyo and Phillips are my guys.

    Phillips and Homer. Votto is always my 25th favorite Red on the team.

    I imagine that not a single one of us has a problem with Brian Price.

    Other than that, Votto is obvious. Cueto too, probably.

    My favorites, probably since they were drafted, are Bailey and Bruce.

    Yeah, I am generally a fan of the Reds. Nowadays it is difficult to become too invested in many certain players.

    I agree with WOY, I love winning. My favorite is Votto but to be honest I love what most of these guys bring to the team. It is a thrill to watch players who truly enjoy each others' company.

    Honestly, this is just a really likable team, from top to bottom.

    This is probably a surprise, but I might just have to say Dusty. I love Homer, Jay, Joey, Bronson and Ryan. But while his in-game tactics can drive me bonkers at times, I just love how much Dusty cares about his players and is clearly willing to jump in front of that proverbial bus for his players. I love how he is so willing to stick with his guys (sometimes to his detriment). I love his down-home quality. Simply put, Dusty's good people. :O)

    Bailey CYA winner

    If I got their jersey to wear, Votto and then Choo.
