    I'd bring back Dibble. He'd provide a fighting mentality on the field...and unfortunately in the clubhouse too.

    Eric Davis in CF batting cleanup would be lovely

    In this order
    Bench
    Seaver
    Larkin
    F Robinson
    J morgan
    Rose
    E Davis

    Any of those guys in their prime would make the reds dominant. Morgan would be higher but Phillips is pretty good already.

    I spent some time thinking about this.

    I'd most like to see Eric Davis in CF (Choo moves to LF), just because he's the most exciting Red I've ever seen (in my opinion). Impact player offensively and defensively, even though he may not have the best OPS of the choices.

    On the other hand, plugging in Soto to the rotation would be pretty sweet too
    Dibble in the pen would be a huge help as well.
    I just think Davis (or Foster/Robinson) would elevate the offense a lot and help us win more of these close games that we've been tending to lose this season.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    George is my all-time favorite Red. Instead of pinups....I taped Foster baseball cards to my wall.
    Choo
    BP
    Votto
    Foster
    Bruce

    Wow !!
