Re: Predict their stats for 2013
The best thing about the Red lineup is the lack of holes.
Looking at the lineup position by position, the following players were below average offensively in 2012 (according to wRC+):
C Hanigan/ Mesoraco (21)
SS Cozart (21)
Frazier (12) and Bruce (13) were right around league average at 3B and RF respectively, Ludwick was a Top 10 performer (8), and Votto (1), Choo (3), and Phillips (4) were Top Five for their positions. Reds pitchers ranked third in the National League in wRC+ as well.
