I was messing around with various Run Estimation Formulas and came to the conclusion that even if the Reds' offense puts up the same counting stats they should score about 40 more runs in 2007 than they did in 2006. For whatever reason :cough: (clutch) :cough: the Reds scored a lot fewer runs than any of the Run Estimators predicted. One point of interest is the Lineup Analysis. (On the attachment this is BMLA). This is a feature on www.BaseballMusings.com. You put in the OBP and the SLG for all nine hitters and it gives you how many runs per game the best, the worst and average lineups would have scored. Using the Reds OPS and SLG numbers per lineup position for 2006 showed that the worst possible lineup would have scored 4.62 runs per game. This is exactly what the Reds average run per game was last year. Yikes! Jerry Narron might take a good long look at his lineup construction next year.
