2010 Nominees for the Reds Hall of Fame

The ballot for the Cincinnati Reds HOF 2010 class is:

Contributions while playing for the Reds
Bret Boone (1 AS, 1 GG) - decent numbers but not hall worthy, blossomed in Seattle.
Jeff Brantley - had a couple solid seasons as the closer in the mid-90's.
Norm Charlton (1 AS) - posted good numbers with the Reds, ERA under three for 4/5 years.
John Franco (3 AS) - career 2.76 ERA with the Reds, 1.57 ERA with 39 saves in 1988.
Danny Graves (2 AS) - Graves still has left a bitter taste in my mouth upon his couple horrific years near the end of his days with the Reds.
Kevin Mitchell - put up a 30 HR year but I'll always remember him as a Giant.
Hal Morris - never an all-star but a solid player. Batted over the .300 mark five of his years with the Reds.
Paul O'Neill (1 AS) - a solid year in 1991 but he's a Yank.
Chris Sabo (3 AS) - over 20 dingers in three of his years. The eyeware alone gets him in.
Scott Sullivan - seriously!

Barry Larkin was the lone recipient last year as the Reds only allowed one player to win the honor for the Class of 2009. This year three players will be selected. My votes go toward John Franco, Chris Sabo, and Norm Charlton. Although Franco will be remembered by many as a Met he was really good with the Reds.

Your Thoughts on who you think should be voted?

My vote would be for: Hal Morris- Hal was solid, his numbers for the Reds were consistant. I think he deserves it.

Chris Sabo- Sabo I think is a lock, he was a hugh part of our success in the 80's and early 90's and a fan favorite.

Norm Charlton- My only argument would be next year the Hall of Fame class should be Charlton, Dibble and Meyers....The Nasty Boys!

John Franco maybe, otherwise, UGH!

Not much of a Hall of Fame if Scott Sullivan gets nominated.
