Re: Offense? Reds took one of their biggest strengths and made it a glaring weakness
Why has the offense been so bad?
Jr has performed like a 6 hitter rather than a 3 hitter.
Freel and Aurillia and Phillips are hot and cold.
Encarnacion is over his head.
Clayton is horrid. And our management is not willing to make a position change in the middle of the season.
I'd love to see us move to a lineup like this. I think it can be successful but I also don't think we will see it.
Thing for me is, where would we upgrade the bats? OF for Denorfia is a possibility in that lineup, but if we have Freel at 2B and Phillips at SS, I don't see a big need for upgrades. We just need Jr to start swinging the bat.
