MVP:
Pete Rose

Why the Reds won: Rose, Joe Morgan and Ken Griffey got on base all series long, and Sparky Anderson used good relief combinations to compensate for a mediocre rotation.

Why the Red Sox lost: They didn't have much pitching depth and lost both games not started by Luis Tiant or Bill Lee.

Memorable moment: In what might be the greatest WS ever, Carlton Fisk waving his walk-off homer fair in the bottom of the 12th in Game 6 is one of the most famous plays in baseball history.

Key stat: .370. Rose's batting average in the series with 10 hits; plus, he drew five walks.
