Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 Cincinnati Reds.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
The Reds did not make the 2021 Playoffs, nor did anyone crack the top 50, however there was one slight change, that impacted the top five, as Joey Votto moved into the #5 spot.
As always, we present our top five.
1. Pete Rose
2. Johnny Bench
4. Joe Morgan
5. Joey Votto
You can find the entire list here.
Votto took over #5 from Hall of Famer, Barry Larkin.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
