    I had a hard time putting Rose on and a hard time leaving Lombardi off.

    Rose, Bench, Doggie and Sparky

    Others are deserving but I'd limit it to our greatest era

    Those are the four I had. Very tough to pick out four when a franchise is over 125 years old. Plenty of deserving players,managers,front office executives and owners who could be there.

    Extremely tough to pick only four.

    Robinson
    Bench
    Rose
    Morgan

    Ask me again in 20 minutes and as many as three of them might be different. I think the only absolute no-brainer is Bench.

    Re: Reds Mount Rushmore

    Rose, Bench, Klu. The last one for me is tough. I know many here automatically pick Barry...but he's no lock for me. Morgan, Sparky, Robby, Perez, Junior, Votto...lots of outstanding choices. I'd have to go Morgan I think. His time here wasn't as long as the others, but I think he did more with it than anybody.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I might let Pete run his own tourist trap with the largest rubber band ball just outside the monument.
    I think this is where I would be at. But for me, it would be a tough call between Robinson and Rose. You could make a great case for either. It probably should be Pete based on his numbers, but he's got that black mark of course.

    I'm surprised so many in this thread have omitted Morgan. Dude is easily 1 of the best 2B of all time.

    I would break mine up by era so as not to overweight the BRM years.

    WWII era and before: Bucky Walters
    1950's and 60's: Frank Robinson
    BRM era: Johnny Bench
    Post BRM: Barry Larkin

    I'd put Cueto on there but he's so fat the mountain might crumble.

    Roush to represent the early years (incredibly popular fan fave that modern fans have all but forgotten but at one time he was as popular as Pete before the gambling). Walters to represent the 2dchampionship era....Bench to represent the BRM...and Larkin to represent the last championship and modern era.
