The Nasty Boys were three relievers — Rob Dibble (8-3, 11 saves), Norm Charlton (12-9, 2 saves), and Randy Myers (4-6, 31 saves) — who pitched for the 1990 World Champion Cincinnati Reds. They earned their nickname for being one of the most reliable — and feared — bullpens in the league. After hitting a batter during the season, Charlton declared “I threw it at him. He’ll be lucky if I don’t take his head off next time I’m pitching.”
The trio teamed up to help the Reds remain in first place from Opening Day until the last game of the season — the first ever team to go wire-to-wire. In the playoffs, Myers earned the NLCS MVP by tossing 5 2/3 scoreless innings and earning 3 saves, and combined with Dibble to toss 7 2/3 scoreless innings in the World Series against the Oakland Athletics.
