1990 NLCS Game #1: Pirates at Reds 01.12.2022 Walk vs. Rijo. Called by Jack Buck and Tim McCarver Post navigation PreviousNext 70 Comments Comments navigation Newer comments The cookie cutter stadiums were much louder than the bullshit ass new stadiums of today. I don't care what anybody says. New isn't always better Reply This is awesome! I attended this game, but I haven't seen the video since. This is a gem! Reply i still hate bream Reply Tim McCarver is just as annoying 27 years later as he was in 1990. It boggles the mind how much prime time color commentary he provided, his opinions masquerading as baseball strategy or fact. Reply The last NLCS until 2000 to not feature the Braves Reply Where the hell was Pete Rose? Reply Yeah!!!!! Suck it Reds! Reply Who said "Kick some ass" at 12:30? Reply Commentators:Jack Buck, Tim McCarver & James Brown (Cincinnati)Pat O'Brien & Whitey Herzog (New York) Reply Umpires (Game 1) (21:06)HP Harry Wendelstedt (Crew Chief) (7th)1B John McSherry (7th)2B Paul Runge (7th)3B Dutch Rennert (6th)LF Jerry Crawford (4th)RF Gerry Davis (1st) Reply The only commentator in sports worse than Tim McCarver is DICK Vitale. I've always felt that CBS' ownership of the NCAA tournament is proof of God's compassion [we're not stuck with DICKIE V throughout March Madness] Reply Check out Pete's brother Dave Rose at 1:20:50 talking to James Brown about Pete following the team from prison Reply In 1987 all of baseball was hailing Eric Davis as the next Willie Mays Reply 31:16 I first thought Bonds played the ball horribly with his body position, but look again, and watch how the ball just makes a hard left turn! Reply I was around 18 months old when this series occurred! I'm glad I can watch it today. Reply 2 dislikes by Doug drebek and Andy van Slyke Reply The Pirates had a better record than the Reds but for some dumb reason the Reds got to be the home team to start the series. Of course they always screw over the Pirates. Reply Dave Rose looks like and sounds like Pete Reply Thanks Rus, great to see these games again. Reply Is it that time again? Reply Whitey Herzog drunk? Reply 3:25: Hey guys…I'm here for my audition for Steve Perry's spot in Journey. Is this the backstage area? Reply thanks Rus..thisgame sure took my mind off corona 19..thanks for uploading. Reply hope you can upload more 1990 postseason..thanks again Reply Who knew then pat O’Brien would leave the greatest set of voice mails about 15 yrs later Reply Is Bobby Bonilla still getting paid? Reply LOVING these old games during the covid19 months Reply I remember this well. I am a Reds fan, and I was in the 5th grade in 1990. What a great summer to be a Reds fan. I think game 1 was on a Thursday. Reply which game did Big O'Neill dominate Reply The future NL Central rivalry opponent till [1994 – Present]. Reply 1990…Cincinnati bastards beat the Pirates Reply The pirates and the athletics would have been probably a great world series but the reds got hot at the right time ….And pirates starting pitcher Bob walk never looked comfortable on the mound. … Reply The chicken runs at midnight Reply Paul O'Neill one of the most underrated ball players Reply Jim Leyland is the most stressed out person of all time Reply A classic and sorry not to see the games back on CBS!!! the first nlcs and alcs + the world series I saw on television!!!! Reply Great Baseball. The Reds created a enormous surprise. Reply My dad took me to this game as my 18th bday gift. Reply I don't like to make predictions, but..if we (Reds) manage to beat this tuff Bucs team, and the A's win their series, then I see us sweeping them in the W.S. Yup, the A's just don't measure up to the Reds..sweep! Reply I think the Reds ground-crew needed to wet down that damn dusty infield.. impossible calls to make @ 2nd base! Reply Bob Walk is a shitty name for a pitcher lol Reply even though my Pirates lost the series… these are wonderful memories… Reply Bonds has a great arm? Sid Bream would disagree. Reply This Pirates team was very good I remember them well. They deserved at least one championship between 190-1992. Reply Why do I like Jack Buck but not Joe Buck? Reply Jose Lind looked like Sammy Davis Jr.'s son Reply Bonds was more likeable early in his career when he played for my Pirates Reply James Brown on the field for MLB with CBS lol Reply The Reds had no business sweeping the A's in the WS Reply From 12:06 to 12:36 Bonds, Bream and Lavalliere introduced back to back. Nobody knew at the time that 2 years later the three would be linked for life after the end of game 7 of the NLCS.
