So do these numbers make up for and/or supersede the numbers that T. Gack posted in the other thread? Especially the strikeouts....co-leading the MLB in Ks with the possibility of driving runners in? That's pitiful.
No reason that an above average team (as the Reds are touted to be) should fail to put the ball in the play more often when it's needed the most.
We currently rank dead last in MLB with 4.67 runners left on base/game.
We're ranked 18th in the league in Avg w/ RISP.
We're T-1st in MLB in K's w/ RISP.
