The table settter is 0 for his last 24 and 1 for his last 29.
And consider the emailer Jeff earlier this week: (updated)
Taveras during 14 game hit streak: 24-59 .407 avg (Reds record 10-4)
Taveras in other 45 games: 22-134 .164 avg (Reds record 21-24)
1st Dusty got "irritated" about people telling him to play the hot hand.
2nd Dusty moved Taveras to the 2nd spot to help him get going.
3rd? Heck, maybe Dusty moves him to the 3rd spot.
Taveras has an OBP of .294. He's done the impossible, it's lower than his OBP last year in Colorado (.308)
It all makes my head hurt.
Wouldn't you love to hear the conversation where Bob C. asks Walt why they are paying him 4-million next year?
Kind of like me asking Bob Miller why they were paying him 4 million before the season started. He is a DFA waiting to happen. If not soon, then it will be before the end of his contract. I can't really see anyone taking him in a trade unless the Reds are dealing with Kenny Williams.
