That team started 8-0 and then 11-1 (not sure about the 11-1 part and too lazy to look). I posted about that team (http://www.redszone.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2277862) back in April.

That 1990 NLCS was an amazing series. I didn't think they had a chance. And then Glenn Braggs happened.

Eh, it wasn't great, but it wasn't horrible either. The Reds still had some remnants of the BRM in the lineup (Bench, Foster, Griffey, Concepcion), as well as a pair of solid if unspectacular offensive performers at the corner INF positions (Driessen, Knight), a .300-hitting burner in CF (Collins), and a highly-regarded rookie gloveman at 2B (Oester).

The bench wasn't exceptionally strong, but there were a few solid performers. Lefty-hitting backup catcher Joe Nolan hit over .300, and veteran INF Junior Kennedy capably held down the fort at 2B until Oester was ready to take over. Cesar Geronimo and Sam Mejias were defensive-minded OF's--the Chief was way past his prime, but Mejias had his best major-league season. Harry Spilman was the top power threat off the bench, and ultimately had a good major-league career as a PH for the Astros and Giants.

In the pitching department, Tom Seaver rebounded from injury and a horrible first half of the season to turn in a respectable second half. Youngsters Mario Soto and Frank Pastore were very impressive. Joe Price, Charlie Leibrandt, and Paul Moskau were inconsistent, but showed potential. Mike LaCoss was disappointing after his strong 1979 campaign. In the bullpen, Tom Hume was nails, and Doug Bair was an innings-eater.

It should be pointed out that this was the only time all season the Reds were behind in the standings or a playoff series. They lead wire to wire in the division and swept the A's in the World Series.

Surprising that Gullett only had 1 HR in his career. He was always a very good hitting pitcher.
I can remember the Reds just running wild on the Pirate pitchers and catcher Manny Sanguillen. It seems like they had a bunch of stolen bases. The Pirates just seemed over matched in this game and the series.

And then Paul O'Neill.

And then Eric Davis, and the greatest defensive play I've ever seen.
