Don't look now, but the Reds are looking like an offensive team.

Before tonight's 8 runs against the Pirates here is their ranking in the National league.

Runs: 4th
BA: 2nd (when's the last time that happened???)
OBP: 3rd
Slg: 2nd
Hits: 5th
HR: 2nd
SB: 3rd

Watching the game I wondered why Dusty is not giving more playing time for Heisey given is semi hot streak. But look at these team numbers! Whatever he's doing, it's working. If this keeps up, the biggest concern has to be the bullpen.

We're doing all of this without having anyone in the Top-10 of most Offensive stats. Votto might slip into a couple.

It's a total team effort.

Cairo even contributed the last two days.

AND the pitchers are batting something like .400 over the past week :D

I was shocked to see those numbers. GO REDS!

But somehow, with all this great hitting and good pitching, we have only scored 16 more runs than our opponents. That is a lot of close games. This will come into play later in the season when we have some real pressure on us. We will know how to handle the pressure.

Well, I read over in the ORG that we have given up like 60-something runs in 6 combined games, which doesn't really help the overall run differential. I'm curious to see the RS/RA in the last 30 games.

Cardinals Run Scored- 205
Reds Run Scored- 237

even though the Cards have a better run differential, the Reds are getting it done at the plate!

Let me update those numbers for you a little to include last night

Runs: 3rd
BA: 2nd
OBP: 3rd
Slg: 1st
Hits: 2nd
HR: 1st
SB: 3rd


Here is a little tidbit I thought was a mistake when I first saw it. What MLB team leads the majors in batting average? Would you believe Kansas City Royals? Seriously, I thought it was a mistake.

We have the 4th best record in baseball, overall. The 2nd best in the NL. I was surprised to read that.

The best record in baseball is SD, and they are bound to fall off soon....lets hope the Reds don't follow suit.

And everyone was so concerned with the offense early. Isn't this quite a switch ;)

It helps when you get to play the NL Central so much.

The REDS have a losing record in their combined games outside the Division. That will be another test later. But, for now, bring on the Astros.

You just can't be happy can you? ENJOY IT! It doesn't happen all that often around here.

Yeah, our division has 4 teams that are sub .500, this might be one of the years where having a 6-team division works for us. If 3 or 4 teams in the division are hot it hurts.

Four weeks ago I predicted we'd be 30-21 after Sunday's game. Looks like I'll be right. The only way to have done that is, first of all to know what I'm talking about, but most importantly, I was (and am) very optimistic about this club (when so many people were wanting the whole team traded away).

You'll find two dozen positive threads started by me about the REDS over the last 4 weeks (about one per day).

We now lead the N. league in BA, Fielding and several other categories. I expect the reds to have possible 6 guys with 20+ homeruns

As of yesterday, Votto was in the top 10 in hitting, RBI and HR.
Phillips was in the top 10 in Runs and doubles
Rolen was in the top 10 in HR
Stubbs was in the top 10 in stolen bases.
