Perhaps a good comparison would be Frank Robinson - though the Reds and Orioles didn't make a franchise move anytime during Frank's career. I think more people associate Frank with the Baltimore Orioles, though many of know good and well he had ten solid seasons as a Cincinnati Red before coming to Baltimore and playing six seasons - Frank also managed the Orioles for 3 1/2 seasons. Frank won the MVP with both clubs (1961 Reds, 1966 Orioles), Rookie of the Year with the Reds, a triple crown with the Orioles - but Frank did play in the World Series 4-times as an Oriole (in six seasons) and was part of two world championship teams. Frank made it to the Fall classic once as a Red. Frank also played for the Dodgers, Angels and Indians in the final years of his playing career, but like Aaron in Milwaukee, noone considers Frank as a Dodger, Indian or Angel (though he did get his first managing job in Cleveland - a player/manager).Originally Posted by Brownie31
Thus, that one might be tough - Frank as a Red or Oriole. Frank established himself as a great player in Cincy.
