New York Red (08-27-2013)
The Allen Craig thing is sort of interesting.
His career, thus far, has a 1.074 OPS with RISP (400 PAs). With no one on base, his OPS is .783 (720 PAs). Remarkable splits.
Of course, his BABIP with RISP is absurdly unsustainable long-term: .425.
Very weird case study.

most deflating loss of the season for me.
We just handed the Cards sole possession of first place.
I hope we can split the remaining two games.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
Nov. 13, 2007: One of the greatest days in Reds history: John Allen gets the boot!
We've been really, really spoiled by this recent run of starting pitching when a dude on pace to K 205 batters with a 3.71 ERA is a disappointment.
Could he be better? Sure. But he's faaaaarrrr from the biggest problem on this team. Nowhere even near the top.
Can the Reds pull a 2011 Cards??
If folks are satidfied with the year Homer is having, they must be pretty easy to please. Relative to Eric Milton, fine. Relative to Bronson, not so fine.
Probably the worst loss of the season for me. Games like tonight are why I pretty much refuse to buy tickets to games against the Cardinals.
I miss Adam Dunn.
