    Because they are an awful "bat-on-the-ball" club. Griffey's usually one of the better on the team at that, but obviously he's not been himself all season.

    Griffey gives up a RBI double.

    I really hope the Reds pursue Mike Cameron this offseason, or atleast move Ryan Freel to CF full time next year.

    I agree with FCB.....they are bad "contact" hitters.....this team needs 1-2 Casey type hitters, but cheaper.

    Votto might do the trick......contact hitter, with power and OBP skills.

    I see. Then perhaps he is tired? He might be hiding an injury, but his last three starts were MLB caliber.

    His August WHIP was 3rd best on the REDS staff and only minimally higher than Eric Milton (1.53 WHIP). His WHIP has also gone up every month from May with about the same consistentcy... May = 1.22 ; June = 1.30 ; July = 1.41 ; Aug. = 1.54). Perhaps the hitters have figured him out to a degree or he is tired or he is hurt. I'd lean towards the first two suggestions.

    But no one here knows for sure! I hope for the best... for the rest of this year for Harang and in the future. And today wouldn't "hurt" either.

    There's a chance Hennesey is a better hitter than Alfonzo.

    You're right. Which is why I worded it as a speculation, not a certainty.

    Walkin' the 8 man to get to the pitcher is terrible.

    One of the best things you can do is get the 8 man for the last out. It means the pitcher has to lead off the next inning and it's like spotting you an out.

    I really think that the Reds will pursue Torii Hunter during the offseason.
