    As a Reds fan, good choices. I was curious to see how you dealt with the Perez/Big Klu dilemma. Fortunately 3B has a weak history in Cincinnati.

    Good props to Vada Pinson as many may not know about his productivity.

    For your readers, (as I know you know), I did an all-time Reds team with a twist … no members of the Big Red Machine allowed.
