  • Reds all time 25 man roster

    C: Johnny Bench, Ernie Lombardi
    1B: Joey Votto, Tony Perez
    2B: Joe Morgan, Bid McPhee
    3B: Pete Rose, Heinie Groh
    SS: Barry Larkin, Dave Concepcion
    LF: George Foster
    CF: Vada Pinson, Edd Roush, Eric Davis
    RF: Frank Robinson
    SP: Noodles Hahn, Eppa Rixey, Bucky Walters, Frank Dwyer, Jose Rijo
    RP: John Franco, Clay Carroll, Aroldis Chapman, Rob Dibble, Jeff Shaw

    How many games would this team win against 2016 competition if all of these Reds players were together in their Reds prime?

    The way I see it is the starting rotation would be among the best in baseball with a lights out bullpen. The lineup would be by far the best in baseball. Excellent bench as well. All that said 120 wins should be possible.

    it makes me happy to see Vada Pinson on the roster. When George Foster or Eric Davis or Joey Votto have the "least accomplished" careers on an all-time roster of position players, you know that team is good.

      Yeah the only weakness that I see (not that it's a weakness) is starting pitching. Still excellent with Jose Rijo as the 5th starter, but perhaps lacking in household names.

        I'd personally have Edd Roush in center over Vada Pinson, as Edd was a significantly better hitter and fielder, although Pinson was probably the better baserunner, as he picked his spots to run better.

          The Reds have had a handful of second-place finishes in the Cy Young race that you might consider. Tom Seaver (1981), Mario Soto (1982), Danny Jackson (1988), Pete Schourek (1995), and Johnny Cueto (2014). I would have a hard time leaving Seaver and Soto off the roster.

            Agreed. I might also leave Shaw off the roster and add Big Klu as a good bat off the bench/DH when playing in the World Series in AL parks.

              My starting pitchers would be Rixey, Walters, Derringer, Maloney,and Soto. I can just imagine how many games that rotation would win with the Machine behind them and that bullpen available when needed.

                Thing is...the choices really aren't that hard for the position players; not that many options. Pitchers are a different story, of course.
