This (http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/10-year-disabled-list-trends/) is a pretty interesting article. Notable Reds quote here:


The main point when looking at the long term trends is how the Chicago White Sox are able to lose fewer than half the number of days as 8 other teams (Colorado, Arizona, Kansas City, Cincinnati, LA Dodgers, Washington, New York Mets and Texas). In the last few years some teams, like the Dodgers, have tried to put a better foot forward in limiting injuries.

Here's the referenced graphic:

How much of our issues was the astroturf at Riverfront? I know that was just a couple seasons but still I wonder if that inflated things some.

I think the biggest problems were from Griffey and signing a number of broken down retreads who frequently hit the DL.

And a lot of Griffeys injuries have been blamed on him playing on turf in center for 10 years.

The mid 2000s were pretty awful for the Reds when it came to regulars having durability issues.

Paul Wilson, Austin Kearns, Junior, Larkin, Encarnacion, Freel, Brandon Larsen, Ryan Wagner.

Seems most of those guys accumulated a lot of DL time in a couple year span.
