    Best Cincinnati Red Player Of All-time?

    Some great ones here but I want to know who is the best Cincinnati Reds player (current or retired) in the history of the Reds?

    Tough question, as there are so many variables. Position player or pitcher? You also have to take into consideration the eras in which guys played. In 1987, Eric Davis had one of the best seasons of any Reds player ever, and were it not for injuries, he was primed to be one of the greatest, IMO
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Johnny Bench.

    Changed the postion, had no defensive equal and could hit like no other catcher, talented enough to play CF and dwarf the averages of his peers at catcher.

    Glen Campbelll says Elvis and Johnny Cash were the two greatest live performers he ever saw " and nobody else is even close" . The greatest Reds player is Johnny Bench and nobody else is even close. I was there the night he hit two homers in Yankee Stadium in the fourth game of the 76 World Series. Remember , we swept the Yankees.

    I lean towards Bench, but I can't argue with anyone who'd say Morgan or Rose.

    Robinson falls just short, IMO, because he spent too many of his prime years in another city.

    Larkin would get fifth-place from me.
