Except that team could hit. This offense has maybe two, three at the most, guys that can change a game with the bat. And Carlos Lee is no Adam Dunn power wise. The Reds from 2003-2006 could hit the ball.
What is odd for me as a fan, is as much as I'd like to see the Pirates return to being a successful franchise, I like the fact that Houston is hurting, and will for a loooong time.
