    Would you buy a car from this first-ballot Hall of Famer?

    MONROE, Ohio (AP) — Former Cincinnati Reds second baseman Joe Morgan hopes to sell some red machines — and plenty of vehicles in other colors — at his new auto dealership in southwest Ohio.

    Morgan took part in groundbreaking Tuesday for the future site of Joe Morgan Honda. He is the majority owner of the business that will be just off Interstate 75 in Monroe, roughly midway between Cincinnati and Dayton.

    The baseball Hall of Famer says he likes the location and is hopeful the economy will be stronger when the dealership opens next summer.

    The ESPN analyst and entrepreneur won back-to-back Most Valuable Player awards with the dominating “Big Red Machine” Reds team of 1975-’76.

    Take a copy of Moneyball there for him to autograph.

    Think I'll stick with General Motors or Ford. Japan and China are raking in mega U.S. dollars every day. Put Americans back to work with American companies. Sorry Joe.

    With 27,000 U.S. employees and seven manufacturing plants here in the states, I'd say they do alright, especially with nearly 30 locations for manufacturing, distribution etc. Greensburg IN Reds fans might like to see Joe selling some of the cars they make.

    It's a complicated world anymore.

    Guess I'd rather own Joe Morgan's Honda Accord than Jo(h)n Voight's Chrysler LeBaron.

    Tough time to try breaking into the auto industry.

    I drive an Acura TL (Honda) and it was made right here in Ohio.

    Not really. The business is booming right now. I have 7 day a week schedule of working to prove it.

    a Honda is more likely to be assembled in the US (likely in Ohio) with a higher percentage of US made parts then when buying an "American Made" car.

    New car sales are still in the gutter. The anecdotal evidence of your work schedule doesn't really prove anything.

    I do think the bottom has already been reached, however.

    I'd love to buy from American companies, but when the products are more expensive and of a lesser quality, why would I?

    Because you eat with a fork and spoon and not sticks?

    It's a world economy in my eyes.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Honda employs a RedsZoner or two.
