Defense or Offense??
If you had your choice of going to a game and seeing either a defensive battle or an offensive battle what would you choose? Both scenarios will result in a Reds win.
For example, a defensive battle would be something along the lines of Johnny Cueto on the mound pitching lights out with 2-3 defensive gems by Brandon Phillips and Zach Cozart all worthy of being shown on ESPN. Then the closer (whoever that may be) has a lights out 1,2,3 performance in the 9th.
An offensive battle would be something along the lines of 3-4 homeruns on the day for the Reds. A couple of base clearing, extra basehits with the game ultimately being decided by a Jay Bruce walk off grand slamin the 9th.
Obviously there is no right or wrong answer here, just a matter of opinion. For the longest time I have had a hunch what Reds fans as a group would pick so this is as good as time as any to find out if I am right.
