This is the Cincinnati Reds all-time roster. The roster consists of one starter and one bench player for each infield position and one starter and one bench player for each outfield position. Hitters had to have a minimum of 1,500 plate appearances. For pitching, I selected five starting pitchers and three relief pitchers. Starting pitchers had to start at least 75 games during their time with the franchise to qualify. Relief pitchers had to accumulate a minimum of 150 innings pitched to be eligible.

  1. Cozart on any all time team is terrible. Concepcion before Cozart on any day EVER. Personally i would add and subtract probably as many as 5 different players. I think world series and other things should have been taken into consideration. I just browsed your players and i know my list would be considerably different. Sorry i just cant get by seeing Cozarts name. It makes me ill.
