With the announcement today of the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII (yes, the original cast is returning), we got to thinking about which Star Wars characters best represent Cincinnati Reds' players.
The young star in which so much hope for the future resides. At times he is doubted by many, but his skill and potential are unlike anything people have seen.

Since the retirement of Scott Rolen, Ryan Ludwick has become the elder wise-man of the team. Often looked to for guidance and support, he leads by example while molding the players of the future.
Glorified by his hometown people, this figurehead is loathed by many (especially in Cincinnati). Easily the most vilified in quite some time, Molina represents all that is despised by the Cincinnati faithful.
The undoubted leader of the good guys, he teaches those who follow him by putting them in a position to be successful. Sometimes forced to use tough love, his leadership is irreplaceable to all.
Perfectly representing dependability and loyalty, he is beloved by many. He nearly always completes his job successfully. Who are we kidding - it's the furriness/facial hair resemblance that won us over.
He doesn't say much, but when does it is in another language. However, he is the best at what he does. Quietly he leads his team in an unheralded manner.
Always able to provide the comic relief, he is one of the cornerstones of his team. He is liked by all and is one of the most memorable in recent history.
A lethal weapon, his skill is unmatched by others and allows him to standout in his profession. His posture and execution convey his confidence.
He is the backbone of the team. Always dependable day in and day out, he is the best at what he does.
