Yes but you said the team was only good because of the pitching staff. That is not true.
Too many, not ready for prime time players...

When you get below-average production from 5 of the 8 hitters in the lineup, its tough to score consistently, even with the top 2 on-base percentage guys in the league (Votto and Choo). And with the Reds likely to lose Choo to free agency, lineup production will just get worse.
I also think the team wore down in September. I believe the Reds had 6 guys play at least 150 games. Maybe it would have been good to give Votto or Bruce an extra day here or there.
