    Bench....Morgan and whom?

    Reds are now working on the Joe Morgan statue that will be revealed in teh 2013 season. Bench went up last year. They are going to do 2 more members from teh BRM era in 2015 and 2017. So...who should be the other two?

    If there's a 4192 exhibit with his name on it in the Reds HOF, a statue isn't too different.

    Make two and stick the other up Selig's ass.
    There are only two seasons - Winter and Baseball.

    Not sure about that one. We currently have three different tributes to Pete in GABP, so would a statue violate any rules? Albeit the current tributes are subtle in nature -- 14 bats on the stacks, the Rose Garden outside right field, and Club 4192 -- they are still there and they aren't a secret.

    For some reason or another, IF not Pete, it will be Sparky.

    That pretty much sums it up, although I'd love to see a Davey Concepcion statue out there some day if they keep going.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    How about Larkin. Some one for the fans under 40 to relate to.

    The OP stated that the selections were from the BRM.
