IMO, yes. TG's stats are not irrelevant, but what nate and Raisor are showing are not small windows, isolated situations (Ks w/RISP), but TOTALS that would include all, including TG's numbers.
So regardless of the fact the Reds aren't batting for average to well with RISP, are K'ing, they still are....
- 5th in the league in runs scored with RISP, 6 runs behind the Cardinals (nate)
- are averaging over 5 runs a game (Raisor)
I have a love/hate relationship with the month of April. I love it obviously because it's the start of baseball. I hate it, in a sense, because of the erratic weather and other variables... players trying to get comfortable, find their groove... and that it doesn't, IMO, present the true nature (identity) of a team as a whole. I just think it's too small of a "window" to be too critical or over analytical RIGHT NOW.
