"The Reds way" was great defense, average starting pitching, above average bullpen, and an incredible offense. When that went away, so did the championships, even when the uniforms and grooming went away. I'm with WOY, can we move on please? The BRM stands alone.
Maybe the Cubs should look at some game photos of the 1908 Cubs, Tinker and Evers didn't talk to each other, maybe if Walker and Nomar tried that.......
