All-Time Cincinnati Reds Draft

All-Time Cincinnati Reds Draft

Jeff Erickson and I did an all-time Reds draft. We invited Reds fan Clay Link, but he was too terrified to join, and as it turns out, rightly so. I feel bad about dominating Jeff on his own turf, but maybe it'll turn out to be the tough love he needs to turn his flailing life around. 

The criteria is getting the best real-life players during their time on the Reds only, so resume-boosting ones like Tom Seaver (Erickson) and Ken Griffey, Jr. (me) are not as valuable as their names would imply. 

Here are the results:
