    When Reds stop setting new marks in baseball history for strikeouts every year and become better with hitting/fielding fundamentals then yes, pitching will no doubt improve just by association.....................................

    We'll start seeing pitchers from other teams come to Cincy and instead of going up in flames, we'll see them pitching closer to what they are capable of doing. Funny how these things are connected in team sports - not as independent of one another as one might think.
    What pitcher wouldn't want to pitch with one of the league's top offenses to back him up?

    Btw....You still haven't answered the question of the relevance of "using all fields".

    Do extra bases discriminate?

    When the Reds strike out less, their pitching will get better.

    That's BRILLIANT!

    No doubt the Reds need better D to help the pitching, but offense has nothing to do with the success of pitching (other than W/L).

    The Reds will win games when they put a more talented team on the field. Encarnacion's going to be a big part of that. Denorfia might be too. Both are slashing, multiple skills players.

    Oh really? if you say so..........

    Also, thanks for this private message to me...... "You are, quite simply, the most baseball-inept poster who's ever come to this board. I made the mistake of clicking open your post and the level of idiocy in every sentence you type is astounding."

    Not only was your message clearly factually incorrect it was also rude and mean spirited. Seeing those types of communication help to remind me what I'm dealing with when discussing things with people like you.

    You probably wouldn't get it. Yes, there are exceptions (Ted Williams etc...) but "using all fields", "going with the pitch", "hitting ball where it is pitched" is one of the fundamentals of hitting. It is along the same lines as the cliche "take what they're giving you" etc.. etc.........it is more about "process" then results so really no direct relationship with OPS or RC either so I suspect you would probably dismiss it as irrelevant.

    OH, thank you KronoRed.....just FYI to everyone, evidently KronoRed just created a new rule. KronoRed said to me in a private message,

    KronoRed "Don't post Privates Messages "

    I have my own idea for a rule KronoRed...before littering up my inbox with rude comments, know that anything you post to me may end up on public forum if I decide to post it. In other words, assume no confidentiality when private messaging rude comments to me.

    Actually that was part of the mandatory comments field in the neg I handed you, not a private message.

    Though since you want to make that part of a public discussion. You're like the Redszone equivalent of the "We don't get French benefits?" Fedex commercial guy. You are not just constantly wrong. You are wrong in ocean-sized amounts.

    We are all worse off for your having posted here.
