Interesting that Minnesota and Cincinnati both had higher winning percentages. The Orioles however would beat them both in the post season.  I recall the Reds got off to a great start that year and Johnny Bench had a career year,

That 1970 Reds lineup was pretty solid and had some legitimate talent.
