I know that people have a lot of stats to show that the Reds problems are not associated with their hitting, but it seems that this team doesn't hit that well. I am wondering what their stats are since the first 3 or so weeks of the season when it seemed every game we scored 7 runs or more. Now, it seems we get shutout 3 out of 7 days. I know that is exaggerating but this team isn't scoring many runs anymore and they are getting shutout a lot. I totally believe our bullpen needs a lot of help and it is true that our starters are not the best in the business but many games they are keeping a real good offense in the game(unlike last year). It just seems lately that we have not been a real good offense.
