Any attempt at creating a list of "the best" anything is very difficult. The good part is that no matter who you pick (most of the time), some will like it and some will think it sucks. That, my friend, is the nature of the beast.
I have picked a starter and reserve at each position, and for the pitchers, I chose two right-handers and two southpaws, starters, and relievers.
To be considered a player, one had to be in Cincinnati for a minimum of five years.
That being said, let us look at my choices for the Cincinnati Reds All-Franchise Team.
