Just a venting. Hopefully they can improve Cingrani's repatoire.
Oh former Reds prospect Ron Torreyes made the Not So Hot list, I hope he turns it around.
Not sure where to find minor league BABIP, but Torreyes' has to stink big time.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
