Most of you guys are much more advanced in looking for stats to defend claims and that stuff, which is why I come to you looking for an answer to a question.

How bad are the Reds at getting out the opposing pitcher, compared to other teams? It seems Reds pitchers against have a much higher than our pitchers against theirs.....

I hope the question makes sense, and can be answered.

Also, historically (last 20+ years) it seems to me that the Reds give up way more home runs to the opposing pitcher than other teams.

Thanks in advance.

Sure.

Pitchers have hit .104/.158/.128 against the Reds. The average NL pitcher hits .136/.180/.172...

Not sure how you did that so fast BC but thank you. Guess it hurts more when it is "your" team being hurt by the o.p.

That kind of stuff happens to me all the time too. Perception is a witch.

BTW, I just used the 2009 Cincinnati Reds pitching splits and 2009 NL hitting splits at BR (http://www.baseball-reference.com/)...

Baseclogger can you find those numbers for last year. I haven't thought it was so bad this year but last year it seemed automatic that the pitcher would kill us in crucial situations.
