    Who's your favourite current Red?

    Just curious as to how this board feels in general towards the current Reds. No bashing or anything like that.

    Mine is Mike Leake. I've just always liked him...he seems like a pretty cool guy, made a really amazing leap into the major leagues bypassing the minors completely and has pitched fairly well relative to his experience (IMO) since joining the Reds. He relies on control and a variety of pitches as opposed to having any real elite quality (besides his control, which is actually elite). He's also a pretty damned good hitter for a pitcher.

    I know he's not a sexy pick like Bruce, Latos or Votto, but yeah he's my personal fav!
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    Favorite on the field is Cueto. Hamilton was up there last September. Favorite in my interactions with players off the field, Bruce.

    Jay Bruce. followed him all the way through the minors, and his first 2 weeks in the bigs were electric!

    Chris Heisey. I am probably alone on this one.

    Probably Votto, though I'm not nearly as attached to individual players now compared to when I was a kid.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    He went off the rail a bit last year with his comments but the guy just plays good baseball. GG, SS, AS, Bat him in the 1 or the 9 or anywhere in between...and he just does it. Plus he's a tweetin' fool.

    Cueto, though, if he loses the funky delivery, I may re-consider.
    If Hamilton has an OBP above .340, he may become my favorite player since Rickey Henderson.

    Votto.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I get the opportunity to see BP perform ballet 150+ times a year, and all of the fan friendly stuff goes a long way with me. Love him.

    Arroyo was my strong #2, when he's on, few are more fun to watch.

    Mine has been Bruce since was called up. My wife's is Leake. She swears its not because she thinks he's cute.

    Just on a personal level it is easily Frazier.
