edit: I just looked it up, the Reds gave up 597 runs in 1990, it's important to remember, that NO pitching staff last year was even close to that.
I was looking back at some of the numbers the Reds had that year. The player that surprised me the most was O'Niel. Not because he had a bad or good year just what happened when he went to the Yankees. His high OBP as a Red was .346, his career average was .363. His high ops+ as a Red was 127 in 91, his career average was 120. He was a nice player for the Reds but was a GREAT player for the Yankees. I have no idea what happened to him but good lord he turned it on when he put on the pin stripes.
