When I hear a guy say "more efficient" regarding the Reds offense, I hear "put the ball on the ground to the right side", "move the runners along", "do the little things".
That's all well and good, with different personnel and with a different skill set than we had last year.
You have to chose your offensive philosophy. We're not set up for small ball, unless Aurilia and Womak get a lot of playing time.
Look at your personnel and play to their strengths.
