Thanks Big Klu.
The Reds loss in game five of the 1973 NLCS was a bitter one. I can recall that when the final out was made, Pete Rose was on base. Johnny Bench and several other Reds had armed themselves with bats, prepared to literally fight their way out nto the field to rescue Rose if necessary from the mob of Mets "fans." Shea Stadium was an ugly scene, and I have rooted against the Mets ever since, even including when they hae played the Yankees.
I can also recall thinking that Dan Driessen, after the Reds had rallied to tie the game 2-2, quit on a play during a Mets rally when the Mets went up 6-2.
I have enjoyed your lineup postings. I look forward to 2010, when I assume you will post lineups from 1970, 1975 and 1990, among other seasons-those are Reds seasons to remember (it's a shame you can't get 1940 as well).
