    Mt. Rushmore of the Reds?

    listening to xm and the constant Jeter chatter and I heard someone mention that Jeter would be one of the faces on the Yankees Mount Rushmore and it got me wondering...who would you pick for our guys?

    Rose, Bench, Larkin, Roush. So hard to pick just four, but the first three are probably close to consensus. Roush was one of the greatest players of his era and played on Cincinnati's first World Series winner.

    Jeter on the Yankees?

    Ruth, Gehrig and Mantle are automatic.

    Last one not so much.

    Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra?

    what about the Phils...with a perfect game and no-hitter in the playoffs would Halladay make it?

    Players only:
    Rose, Bench, Morgan, Perez (Larkin takes Tony's spot if he makes the HOF)

    I can be persuaded to leave Rose off due to his past transgressions. In that case:
    Bench, Morgan, Perez, Larkin

    Greatest Reds in any capacity:
    Rose, Bench, Anderson, Nuxhall







    BTW, I can't see how Jeter could ever make the Yankees' version. Those four spots are locked up:
    Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    First, Jeter might make a Yankee's "Sargent Pepper's Album Cover", but he's not even close to deserving to be on their Mt Rushmore. Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, DiMaggio and shut e door. Berra, Reggie, Stengel, Huggins, Lefty Gomez, Whitey Ford, Rizzuto, Steinbrenner, all ahead of Jeter IMO.

    Second, for the Reds, I would go... Rose, Bench, Larkin and Eric Davis. Perez, sparky and Jose Rijo are next.

    Rose, Bench, Morgan and F Robby. I love Larkin but I can't see him making the cut with those 4 names.
