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.

7. Darth Vader: Yadier Molina

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.

6. Yoda: Bryan Price

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.

5. Chewbacca: Sam LeCure

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.

4. R2-D2: Johnny Cueto

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.

3. C-3PO: Todd Frazier
