Yes, Farrel and Bud Black have had good offensive teams-this post is not saying pitching coaches can't manage. What I am saying is that it seems as if Bryan Price has no cohesive idea about what he's doing offensively. Steve Smith/thrown out at home 22 times due to Price 's mandate is a demoralizing disaster. Bruce looks like he's just hacking away without strategy. For that matter, the team as a whole looks like it's without an offensive strategy. Someone needs to let this team know that an offense is not a series of single at bat events, but at bats assembled strategically into a unified approach.
The one thing you can be sure of, the Reds will be sloooooooow todo anything about it.
