Except first place I guess.
Career Years, an aging Eddy Roush, a healthy (for him) Bubbles Hargrave, and and solid pitching staff with some 'veteran precense' will do that to you.
I don't think after '26 the Reds sniffed the first division until 12 years later. Why would Sidney Weil and Carl Lindner get along so well?
