2009 Topps Randy Myers
On December 6, 1989, Randy Myers became a member of the Cincinnati Reds when he was traded for John Franco. Completing the Nasty Boys trio with Rob Dibble and Norm Charlton, Myers and the Boys dominated from the Reds bullpen and helped the team go wire-to-wire and win the World Series over the hated Oakland A’s. Myers was an All-Star for the first time in 1990, came in 5th in Cy Young voting, and even got a few MVP votes (the 2nd time in his career that would happen…he actually got MVP consideration 4 times in his career…and there we go again with that blog article that I will never write).
Myers only spent two season in Cincinnati, but they were memorable because of that awesome 1990 campaign.
