Even more impressive when you consider there's only 20-25 guys in the NL with a .900+ OPS and we have 3 of them in our everyday lineup.
The fact no one in the Reds organization is smart enough to let them hit in the middle of the order is equally impressive, just in a whole other way.
You just know that the guy who cut Jordan from the 8th grade basketball team is a consultant to this franchise at some level...he just has to be.
