A night of nostalgia: Nasty Boys still crazy after all these years

CINCINNATI -- They went by the name of The Nasty Boys -- Norm Charlton, Rob Dibble and Randy Myers. And when they took the mound for the Cincinnati Reds in 1990, they were, indeed, very nasty boys. The Three Musketeers could not have been any closer than Charlton, Dibble and Myers. One for all and all for one applied to them, too. They were back in town Monday night to throw out...

Mariners we have loved to hate in Seattle

Get outta here ya bum! You wouldn’t think a fan base like the Seattle Mariners – who is constantly accused of being too nice to their club — would have many villains. Ok, yes, maybe the current ownership/executive group is pretty well despised but I’m talking about players. While there haven’t been many there have been some players that have drawn the ire from the Emerald...

Reds injury problems continue

CINCINNATI As Norm Charlton once said to Rob Dibble, two of the three members of Cincinnati Reds Nasty Boys bullpen in 1990, Dibs, you have more problems than a run over raccoon.Or as Reds manager Dusty Bakers old manager with the Dodgers, Tommy Lasorda, like to say, Half the people dont care about your problems and the other half are glad you have them.Problems, most of them of...

*My* top five Edgar Martinez moments in a Mariners jersey

A Living Legend Edgar Martinez is, without one single doubt, my favorite player in any sport throughout history. Making his MLB debut just two years before I was born in 1989, I grew up watching the King of doubles over countless summer nights when he and a cast of Jay Buhner, Ken Griffey Jr., Joey Cora, Norm Charlton, and Randy Johnson propelled the Seattle Mariners to new heights...

The 1990 Reds bullpen tabbed as the second-best of all-time

We all know that the 2012 version of the Cincinnati Reds bullpen was really good. Heck, Reds relievers led all other Major League League clubs with a tidy 2.65 ERA last year. Their dominance even struck up a debate around Cincinnati as to whether or not they were better than the 1990 Reds 'pen. Well, at least one respected ESPN writer has chimed in on his opinion. As good...

Morse is latest once and future Mariner

The Seattle Mariners have a long history of dipping back into their past -- pitchers Jeff Nelson and Norm Charlton as well as outfielders Ken Griffey Jr. and Raul Ibanez have all had two or more turns in Seattle. The same is now true for Mike Morse, who recently came to the Mariners as part of a three-team trade with the Washington Nationals and the Oakland A's. The difference...

A Reds all-decade team for the 1990's

Since we're currently nestled in between that terrible period between last season and next, and since there isn't much else to write about that is Reds-related, I've decided to put together a list of the best Reds players from the 1990's. I have compiled a full, 25-man roster in which I feel to be the best collection of Cincinnati players to wear the red and white...

Bullpen is key for Texas success

The key to success for the Texas Rangers this season has nothing to do with adding a starting pitcher at the trade deadline. It might have everything to do with turning back the clock 22 years. The Rangers should try to pattern their season after the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. That Cincy team won a World Series with a starting rotation that included no starter who won more than 15...

The Fans and Jerseys of Wrigley

This weekend I had a bachelor party in Chicago where we went to the 3639 Wrigley Rooftop (which was an amazing place and I highly recommend) to watch the Cubs take on the Reds.  With Cincinnati being only a 5 hour drive away there was a decent amount of Reds fans in attendance. Here’s some of the fans that I encountered during the day. The award for best shirt of the weekend...

Braves Bullpen Trio Needs New Nickname

By Kent Covington In 2011, no bullpen trio in baseball was more dominant than Atlanta’s Craig Kimbrel, Johnny Venters and Eric O’Flaherty.  In fact this group of Braves’ relievers was reminiscent of another bullpen trio; The “Nasty Boys” (Rob Dibble, Randy Myers and Norm Charlton) of the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. The Nasty Boys… pretty cool nickname, huh?  That moniker...
