    Reds All-Time Outfield

    Here's the premise:

    Vada Pinson or Eric Davis

    Tough Question. I'll take Vada's Career (but I'd rather have Davis at his peak).
    Excellent answer - Vada Pinson is one of those unsung players who was absolutely fabulous, but played in the shadow of many other great outfielders of his day (Robinson, Aaron, Mays, Mantle, Cededa, etc - and I know I'm leaving off some others).

    But Eric Davis in his prime was just unbelievable.

    We've been blessed as Reds fans to have some very terrific outfielders down through the years. I doubt you could ever really do justice to an all-time Reds outfield.
    Using whatever criteria you want, what three outfielders would you choose for the All-Time Reds outfield? I'm very light on the first half of the 20th century, so let me know if I left anybody off. Since the 1950's, frankly we've had a tremendous number of good outfielders. I can see why in 1960, Reds fans named Edd Roush the top Reds player up to then.

    The outfielders should be judged only for their time as a Red.
