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.
When I hear a guy say "more efficient" regarding the Reds' offense, I hear a guy who's come to terms with the horrible reality that is the Reds' pitching staff. Just because we were tops last year doesn't mean there isn't room (or need) for improvement.
As for the Casey and Randa stuff...I got nothing.
