As Reds fans, we’ve collectively underrated George Foster. What a nice player he was, and extremely fun to watch. If he hadn’t played with Bench, Morgan, Rose and Perez, he may have been considered a bigger star.
Another question that occurred to me: what did the Reds do in the early seventies to ruin two Hall of Fame-caliber arms? Don Gullett and Gary Nolan were on their way to brilliant careers when they just broke down. Sad, really.
