Here’s a Reds recap, which is essentially a best season list by position:
c–Johnny Bench, 1970
1b–Ted Kluszewski, 1954
2b–Joe Morgan, 1976
3b–Tony Perez, 1970
ss–Barry Larkin, 1996
LF–George Foster, 1977
CF–Cy Seymour, 1905
RF–Frank Robinson, 1962
Now…that’s measuring one season….who would you pick for a Reds lineup and for an all-time Reds roster?
For me…and I’m going to balance peak seasons along with career value….essentially trying to balance a Mr. MVP seasons and Mr. Red careers:
So, there’s 16 players of a 26 man roster…here’s my 10 pitchers.
Tom Seaver, Eppa Rixey, Dolf Luque, Tony Mullane, Paul Derringer, Bucky Walters, Jim Maloney, Noodles Hahn, Jose Rijo, John Franco
What’s your team? Who do you add? Who do you replace? Why? Which of my two all-time teams would actually be better?
