    most dominant reds pitchers i have seen were Jim Maloney, Bob Purkey, Mario Soto, Jose Rijo and Danny Jackson. i was too young to really remember Ewell Blackwell but my father said he was the most dominant pitcher the reds have ever had so he deserves honorable mention

    The best 5 pitchers for the Reds I ever saw were (in no particular order).

    Don Gullett, Gary Nolan, Mario Soto, Jose Rijo and Danny Jackson.

    I was a Reds’ fan when Maloney pitched for the Reds, but I don’t think I ever saw him pitch. Koufax always said that Maloney threw harder than he did. For the first half of the 1970 season, Wayne Simpson was really something, too.

    Honorable mention to: Tom Browning, Bronson Arroyo, Pete Harnisch, Aaron Harang, Jim McGlothlin

    Tom Seaver was a great pitcher and certainly pitched for the Reds, and is in a class by himself, but sometimes I wonder if he really was a “Red”.

    Pitchers of my viewing era, in no particular order:

    Mario Soto, Aroldis Chapman, Gary Nolan, Don Gullett, Johnny Cueto.

    Books/movies in descending order:

    Lord of the Rings
    Harry Potter
    Star Wars

    The world’s most dangerous podcast itself admitted that many of the Star Wars movies are pretty bad …
