Given our 50 year history here in Cincy of slugging and not much pitching, we are just not used to seeing our Redlegs struggle at the dish. The Reds were just below league average last year at runs scored per game, have added Choo, but lost Ludwick. I think this year will be about the same.
Get used to it. Pray for pitching and defense.
Unless Brandon Phillips bats cleanup.
