We're almost 1/4 into the season, and except for the big 3, (Choo, Votto, Phillips) it seems our hitting has regressed. 3 players can't do it all. If the rest of the players can't get it done, then maybe changes are needed. And you can include the manager and coaches.
Studies have shown that things don't begin to normalize until the 48-50 game mark. So, as far as I'm concerned, it is still early.
