Jeff Keppinger finishes the year with a .402 OB%, this is quite the feat, looking at the Reds in the division era there has only been 17 guys to achieve the feat (250 PA’s Min) Even crazier is 13 of them occurred in the 1969-1981 period, with only four players doing it since 1982.

Well make that five.


1982-2007
OBA YEAR OBA PA
Kal Daniels 1987 .429 430
Barry Larkin 1996 .410 627
Austin Kearns 2002 .407 435
Jeff Keppinger 2007 .402 278
Adam Dunn 2002 .400 676

Back to Brandon Phillips for a moment, his 30/30 season is the second time the Reds have had a middle infielder achieve that feat, the third overall (Eric Davis) however it also is a season that saw Brandon taking only 32 walks, making him only the 4th player in MLB history to have a 30/30 season and less then 40 walks.


WALKS YEAR BB HR SB
Alfonso Soriano 2002 23 39 41
Joe Carter 1987 27 32 31
Brandon Phillips 2007 33 30 32
Alfonso Soriano 2005 33 36 30
Alfonso Soriano 2003 38 38 35
Sammy Sosa 1993 38 33 36

BTW In 1966 Pete Rose walked only 37 times in 700 trips to the dish, so Phillips holds the record for the fewest walks by a Red with over 700 PA’s in a season.

Post strike baseball

Since the 1996 season only 15 teams have had fewer then 124 HR's in a season, 4 of them this year, including the Angels, the only team worth a darn on the whole list.

Aside from this season here's the list.


HOMERUNS YEAR HR OBA SLG

The Reds scored 4.77 R/G in May and still lost 21 of 30...

Despite our pathetic pen, we were 26-24 in 1 run games. In blowouts... not so much. 18-27.

Word.

Less homeruns from the O equals better pitching.

I read it on Reds.com :thumbup:

I read it on Reds.com :thumbup:Only if we trade Dunn for better pitching... (he's the team only tradeable player, IMHO)

Home Runs down 4.7% in the NL this year and a whopping 11.5% in the AL

First time since 1993, that the HR/Game ratio is less than 2 in the AL.

The beginning of a trend? Perhaps. If so, REAL power should be valued at a premium.

The Reds went 6-1 against the Braves, 9-9 against the Cubs, and 8-7 against the Brewers. :thumbup:

They also were 4-11 against the Astros and 1-6 with the Nationals. :thumbdown

I think that's because our "good" bullpen (Weathers and, later, Burton) generally held the 1 run leads. As long as we were winning, we used the better parts of our bullpen. We only lost one game all year in which we lead going into the 9th inning.

When losing, we went with the others, and they often became worse.

Actually Dunn might just be the only non-tradeable player that we have on the team. He literally cannot be traded because of his contract. Griffey can be traded but can block a trade. Dunn cannot be traded. I assume that he technically isn't even Reds property until his option is exercised...then he isn't tradeable until the end of June (or is it July)

I'd say Phillips has a lot more value, that 30/30 makes GM's go gaga
