    He has done this also for the Cubs, Cards and Brewers and only had the 8 position players and no DH or Utility Player (even with the Brewers AL history). I think it is a Rose only creation.
    That makes more sense. Rose would make a much better utility player. But as a DH, absolutely not.

    To solve the Votto/ Klu issue, I would probably bump Rose from the DH and put Klu there. Klu then slots in 5th in the lineup between robinson and Foster- Got to split up the lefties.

    1. 1976 Joe Morgan, 2B
    2. 1987 Eric Davis, CF
    3. 2010 Joey Votto, 1B
    4. 1962 Frank Robinson, RF
    5. 1954 Ted Kluszewski DH
    6. 1977 George Foster, LF
    7. 1970 Tony Perez, 3B
    8. 1972 Johnny Bench, C (I would also look at taking 1970 Bench instead)
    9. 1996 Barry Larkin, SS
    I do like this one...but I think Choo should get some serious consideration over Davis. Factor in the defense and I go with Eric...but it's hardly a lock.

    Bucky Walters arguably had the greatest season ever by a Reds starting pitcher in 1939, winning the pitching triple crown. He not only should be on the staff-he probably should be the number one starter.
    As for Tom Seaver, he pitched roughly 2/3 of a season for the Reds in both 1977, coming to the Reds in a trade in June, and in 1981, losing a third of the season because of a players strike. He pitched 165 innings for the Reds in 1977 and 166 innings in 1981. I would take Seaver in 1977 over Seaver in 1981. He struck out many more batters, had a lower ERA and lower ERA+ and his won-loss records were almost identical, 14-3 in 1977 and 14-2 in 1981.

    No consideration for Junior in CF? I believe he had a yr worthy in 2000 or 2001?

    Historically the Reds haven't had much pitching.
    I don't think a requirement of employment should be that you can never offend people. It's high time folks deal with being offended. It's another example of how we're becoming a bunch of wimps. - Person offended by NFL players not standing for national anthem.

    Oh, and Sparky should manage this team.
    Davy over Larkin?

    I also toss in one more LH in the BP

    1988 - John Franco

    Silly....Votto and Morgan can't hit back to back

    I'd add Scott Williamson 1999 or 2000 to the bullpen.

    I also wouldn't argue with '54 Klu over '10 Votto. In fact, I might even take '12 Votto (and his shortened season) over '10 Votto.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
