I doubt getting rid of a hitting coach is going to make these guys all of a sudden approach the at-bat differently. They are who they are at this point. One more consistent bat would be nice and maybe we get that with Ludwick.
The Reds do lead the NL in walks and are 4th in strikeouts...3rd in the NL in runs...I think last night was a night of missed opportunities and can't happen again.
