Just a brief look at what NL teams have done in 2007 with regards to HRs. I figured the Reds' offense was HR-dependent; but not to this extent. The Reds have scored the second most runs on HRs in the NL - trailing only the Brewers. Home runs account for a whopping 47.3% of the offense for Cincinnati.

It is interesting to note that even though San Diego hits a less-than-average number of home runs, they still enjoy the largest live-or-die (LOD) edge because they give up a ridiculously small amount themselves.
The Reds have hit the most HRs, but are still looking for their first grand slam. At the same time the Nationals have hit the fewest HRs, but have hit four (tied for most in the NL) with the bases juiced.

the Reds problem is a low OBP and atrocious pitching.
