The Reds would have been a lot higher on this list had their 1990 World Series championship not come just before the cutoff period. Without that season, they’d be No. 5 on this list.
Since the “Big Red Machine” days ended in the 1970s, the Reds have been perhaps the saddest thing about Cincinnati—save for Harambe’s death. They’ve had just three winning seasons in their last 17, and have not won a playoff series since 1995. And while this year’s team does have some talented players in Joey Votto, Billy Hamilton, and Luis Castillo, a playoff run is not expected.
