    Positive Thread - 7 days after big trade

    Try to keep this thread positive please, too much negativity lately. I'm not pleading for or against the trade as time will only tell, but starting to see a trend maybe(small sample).

    before trade
    Reds averaging .80 Errors Per Game
    Reds averaging 5.0 Runs Per Game - 5.2 RPG at GAB
    Reds giving up 5.2 Runs Per Game - 5.7 RPG at GAB

    after trade
    Reds averaging .78 EPR
    Reds averaging 5.0 RPG - 5.1 RPG at GAB
    Reds giving up 5.1 RPG - 5.5 RPG at GAB

    During last 7 days
    Reds averaging .57 EPG
    Reds averaging 4.7 RPG
    Reds giving up 4.3 RPG

    Also Griffey, Phillips (& Narron) are all slumping & Ross was on the DL. Fieldind & Pitching improving and Run Scoring remains virtually unchanged. Remember think positive.

    Re: Positive Thread - 7 days after big trade

    There are two factors that I think will be critical to the remainder of the year.

    1) Starters continuing to give us a good effort. I am worried here as BA and AH are showing signs of being tired. Milton and Lizzard have to turn in starts where they keep us in the game and eat a few innings. And we need to do a stadium wide lottery for "would you like to be the 5th starter" promotion night and replace Mays. This will keep the runs we give up decreasing.

    2) Jr, Philips, EE and Ross. If those guys can get their groves back I have no fear of this offense missing a tick with the departure of AK and Lopez. But that is one heck of an IF. That's key for the runs per game to increase.

    Fogetting the trade, you have to like to see the errors comming down along with the runs we are giving up. I hope that continues until October.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I might research a little more and add Park Factor into the above figures. Could GAB show a better or worse trend?
