Re: Big Red Machine
The BRM managed to put together a collection of incredibly talented players on offense, defense, and the mound.
The defense and Sparky Anderson's talent for managing a bullpen allowed the Reds to keep every game close -- close enough for the incredible offense to win it.
Also, timing (which is lucky). The pitching staff peaked at exactly the right time. Foster blossomed late for his age, but it turned out to be perfect.
