So I did a little research about how we're performing w/ RISP and here's what I found:

As you can see, when we win, we not only hit TWICE as well w/ RISP but we ALSO have 9.6 ABs/game w/ RISP per win.

During our losses, we have an average of 7.26 AB's/game w/ RISP.

Now, the * represent 1 run wins or losses and I calculated that myself as well. In 1 run wins, we are 34/127 w/ RISP for a respectable .267 average.

In our 1 run losses, we are 34/179 w/ RISP for a dismal .190 average.

I think that while it's clear we don't get as many runners on base in our losses, it's obvious this team needs to step up in the 'clutch.' The proof is there. When we win, we hit well w/ RISP. When we lose, we're awful w/ RISP.

Speaking solely for this year, but this team sorely needs someone to help out Joey.

Except for Phillips and Votto - the guys that hit with RISP can't hit otherwise, and the guys that can hit with the bases empty can't hit with RISP. Not a good way to score runs. When you get to the playoffs, pitching wins the games, but during the regular season, you need more than two guys that can hit - unless you have 3 or 4 stud pitchers (which the Reds don't).

We're down to hitting .164 w/ RISP in our losses/.335 in our losses.
