    Here's a stat you would never guess

    Here's an interesting but meaningless stat. Which team leads the league this year in sacrifice bunts?


    Give up???


    Yes, it's your very own Reds. I never would have guessed it.

    Oh well. Give Jerry credit for something this year. He improved that part of the game.

    This team doesn't know if it's supposed to be small ball or big fly. They need to figure out their game plan and execute accordingly. It's counter-productive to sac a man over if you're ultimately waiting for the HR.

    This team is in the top half or top 10 in most offensive categories. Pitching, however, is near or at the bottom.

    Unfortunately, our offensive stats aren't that great. Top 10 means absolutely nothing if you have these rankings:


    27th in BA w/ bases loaded
    29th in BA w/ RISP
    29th in BA w/ RISP and 2 outs

    and finally, dead last in the majors in BA in "close and late" games.

    I'd be interested to see where the Reds rank in OPS (or even just SLG. &#37 in those situations. While it's certainly not good to have a low BA in those situations, it just doesn't tell the whole story as to just how (in)effective the Reds are at scoring runs in those circumstances.

    Ouch. Not that it matters too much, but is that just SLG or OPS?

    At any rate, it does reveal a critical flaw in the Reds' offense - one that would prevent them from ever really competing in the playoffs against formidable opposition.

    Also, maybe it's just the depressing season that has me thinking this, but it seems as though while the Reds truly struggle in these situations, whoever they're playing against thrives - especially when they're facing our 'pen.

    It's OPS.

    So no matter what anyone tells you, our offense with Griffey, Dunn, and others isn't very good IMO.
