People always seem to think when the Reds score early and then don't keep scoring it is because they put it on auto pilot for the rest of the game. In reality I think most teams probably do the same thing. I'm guessing it is more an issue of a pitcher finally finding his command or breaking ball after a rough start more than the offense just no longer trying.
I'd bet your right statistically. And I never accuse the team of "not trying." But the consistency of the offense has been making me nervous for a few years. Much more than our D, baserunning or, of course, pitching.
