Ms teaQUOTE=Mutaman;2951032]Seriously good writing by Daugherty today on the state of the Redlegs. Just not ready for prime time. We need somebody to step up.
I agree with some of his points, particularly winning against good teams. The Reds are now 26-37 against teams at .500 or better. All other NL contenders, including Arizona, are much better in that area.
At this stage, late August, I doubt this is random. The team either isn't good enough this year to beat good teams; or they choke against them. I think this record against good teams tells us much.
I don't agree with him about Votto. No player can do it alone, Joey does his share. As for RISP, the Reds are a low batting average club for a contender. If they don't hit in the clutch, well, they don't hit often in the regular course. They need more guys who hit well generally and have all season.
