While you’re waiting for the roster to be announced (and for the game, for that matter) watch this moment of Reds postseason history with the Pirates.

Per Chris’ recommendation: Watch Paul O’Neill in 1990 vs the Pirates.

Steve grew up in Cincinnati as a die-hard fan of Sparky’s Big Red Machine. After 25 years living outside of Ohio, mostly in Ann Arbor, he returned to the Queen City in 2004. He has resumed a first-person love affair with the Cincinnati Reds and is a season ticket holder at Great American Ball Park. The only place to find Steve’s thoughts of more than 140 characters is Redleg Nation. Follow his tweets @spmancuso.

  1. I enjoyed some of the 1990 moments on the side more! Paul Oneill’s game 2 highlights was fun to watch!

  2. That was a heck of a throw. Thanks for the memories!

  3. How is it possible in this day and age that the roster isn’t out nearly three hours after it was due. No tweet, no blog post, no update at MLB.com. I kind of like it, but it’s very surprising.

  4. The real defensive play that deflated the Pirates that series was Davis throwing out Bonilla. He also threw Bonds out at the plate at one point in that series. In no way does that take away from O’Neill, though. That whole team played well and defense with clutch hitting is what won that NLCS.

  5. Posted in “Still Playing” but reposting here as well:

    Reds roster according to a friend I trust in these matters:

    Pitchers (10) – Chapman, Cueto, Duke, Hoover, Leake, LeCure, Marshall, Ondrusek, Parra, Simon

    Position players (15) – Hanigan, Mesoraco, Votto, Phillips, Cozart, Frazier, Hannahan, Izturis, Ludwick, Choo, Bruce, Hamilton, Heisey, Paul, Robinson.

    • @LWBlogger: Looks legit to me ….no surprises. Thought maybe a 3rd catcher for WC game only ,but I’m happy with roster

  6. I have that Game 2 on DVD. O’Neill’s throw turned the whole series around.
