    OT: WHAT IF?

    Every season I always have a thought. What if I could bring back any Reds player's season and put him on this current team who would I bring back? Often I try to pick a position that would fill a role desperately needed. I was wondering who you all would want to have and what season? For example I would take '95 Barry Larkin to play SS and leadoff. Or possibly a '99 Scott Sullivan or Danny Graves that would benefit out pen.


    who would you take?

    I'd take Josh Hamilton and put him in center.

    I could see the 1972 Johnny Bench batting fourth, with Votto, Phillips, and Bruce ahead of him in the lineup, and Rolen providing some protection behind him.

    Pete Rose - 1973 - won the batting title with a .338 average. How much better would our offense be if we could get 230 hits out of the lead-off spot? As far as position, I guess you'd pencil him in at 2B and move Phillips to short.
