My post was probably better suited for the "Rank the Reds" thread, where I saw several posts that had our offense in the top 10 (maybe they meant NL?). I just know that we were one of the worst offenses in baseball last year, and we have done next to nothing to immediately upgrade that offenese, other than signing Cabrera.
I think that was top 10 NL from those with such a rank. At least, I hope so.
And I did not say they would get to .500 with this offense, just that if the pitching and fielding comes together it might be enough "to make a run at it". I hardly see that as wild-eyed optimism.
