Re: Why are the reds really good at home, and horrible on the road?

The others are all slumping. Some BAs over the last 7 days - Heisey .222; Bruce .148; Phillips .111; Frazier .087; Cozart .045.
My guess is that the home/road aspect is a bit of an early coincidence. I think when the Reds start hitting again the road numbers will normalize.
Hopefully it will happen before, say, August, LOL.
BTW, Paul's line in that seven day span is .385/.469/.462/.928. And he's not starting all the time against righties because why again?
No reason at this point.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
