......check out the All-Star lineup above here, before ya look...who is at 1st and CF?
I'd go Klu over Joey myself at first.
I had pinson in center but how many of the rest of you gents had him? If not who?
Reds have fielded sooo many excellent players over history there needs to be a .......5th string. 1 thru 5 each position.
1b Votto (as fendercat stated, he gets benefit of projection for $200mill + an MVP)
2b Morgan HoF -- and no, BP not even close, not even sniffing this spot
SS Larkin HoF
3b Rose *HoF*
Cf Eric Davis (Davis was best player on WS winner, but close w/ Pinson & Foster)
Lf Edd Roush (He is in the real, not just Reds, HoF and best player on WS winner)
Rf Frank Robinson HoF
SP Eppa Rixey HoF (Close w/ Derringer, Walters, and Browning, but Rixey is Reds all time win leader)
CL Nasty Boys -- I mean, thats the standard. But if just 1 guy, then Franco for the career #'s is fine.
So all but Votto, Eric Davis, and the closer are in the HoF (*Rose). Better team that the Enquirer's anyway...
edit -- upon reflection, as much as I want Eric D and Votto on my squad, one would have to go in favor of Tony Perez (in either 1b or Lf), so that would be another HoF position filled
