Re: The first 12 games of 2012 were worse...
The Reds are 5th in the league in runs scored with RISP, 6 runs behind the Cardinals.
To me, the real problem is our pitcher's control. They're giving up too many HR (next to last in the league HR/9) which isn't helped by a below average BB/9 (9th.)
I think getting out of the first month of the season might help the pitching.
