Ok, somebody talk to me about the 72 World Series. On paper it looks like a pretty rad series -- 7 games, 6 won by one run, not to mention an exciting playoff series with the Pirates. But I never hear people talk about it like they do 75 and 76. Is that just because the Reds lost in 72 or because it was the first days of the Big Red Machine or was it really just not as great a series as it sounds?
I'd love to hear thoughts from people who remember it.
