Yep. And for that matter, he did do this back in June too. After a dismal start to the season, he went on a torrid pace and everyone was talking about how he had turned the corner. Too early to know if that's really the case.
The good news is that baseball is about adjustments and making more adjustments when others adjust to you. Hopefully a little light went on with Jay and we'll see this the rest of the season. The Reds could really use that extra umph consistently down the stretch.
