    Favorite Reds Player Ever

    Let's get some positive chatter going. Maybe I'm really asking who your 2nd-favorite Reds player ever is. Because all-time mine has to be Pete....he's one of my least favorite EX-players, but probably my favorite player of all time to watch.

    I'll go with 2 from the 80s-90s era who were my favorite to watch then. First is Eric Davis .... when he was "on" he could swing the bat like no one else. Unfortunately after a few years teams found the hole in his swing and he declined pretty rapidly. But dude had heart and I loved to watch him. Second would be Hal Morris...still regret he didn't win the batting title that year he lost on the last day by percentage points. Beautiful LH swing.

    My all time favorite is Bench. Second would probably either be Davis or Larkin.

    Larkin first. Second is a toss up between Bench and Davis.

    First, Bench, hands down. Second, Eric Davis. Sadly, both have been the biggest jerks when I have met them in person.

    Mario Soto.

    I essentially hate Pete Rose. I was born too late to watch the Big Red Machine, and while having Rose get 4192 in Cincy was great, all he did after that was take us along for his drag through the mud and show his ass at every turn. And 9/11 is known for something else now anyway.

    Probably Larkin in terms of who I liked the most over a period of time, but I was a huge Bip Roberts fan, and loved Reggie Sanders.

    Re: Favorite Reds Player Ever

    It's hard to pick just one. My Shortlist:

    Barry Larkin
    Sean Casey
    Deion Sanders
    Josť Rijo
    Reggie Sanders

    I was born in '86 so I have a limited range of Reds history to choose from.
    I hate the Cardinals. I hate the Cubs.
    Let's. Go. Reds.

    Rose, Bench, Larkin and Votto. Votto may end up taking the top spot before all is said and done.
