Personally, the 1940 Reds are probably my favorite.
They are probably the greatest Reds team that nobody remembers nowadays. Fans still remember the BRM era and the 1990 team, and the 1919 team will always be tied to the Black Sox Scandal. But the 1940 team came back from being embarrassed in the 1939 World Series by the Yanks' Dynasty to defeat the Tigers in seven thrilling games in the 1940 World Series. Bucky Walters and Paul Derringer in 1939-1940 is probably the greatest one-two punch the Reds have ever had in the rotation.
