I have nothing against RH power hitters. I like RH power hitters. Yet I live in a city with an addiction to RH power hitters. Apparently they are solution to any problem the Red Sox might have. Need to overhaul the pitching? Sign Mike Napoli.
So I say this with decades of experience in listening to calls for more RH power hitters: you almost never need
a RH power hitter. The Reds have plenty RH bats in the lineup (in fact probably one or two too many) and almost all of them have a fair amount of power.
