    So the season's over... didja know?

    Jeff Keppinger finishes the year with a .402 OB%, this is quite the feat, looking at the Reds in the division era there has only been 17 guys to achieve the feat (250 PA’s Min) Even crazier is 13 of them occurred in the 1969-1981 period, with only four players doing it since 1982.

    Well make that five.

    Code:
    1982-2007
    OBA                      YEAR     OBA      PA
    Kal Daniels              1987     .429     430
    Barry Larkin             1996     .410     627
    Austin Kearns            2002     .407     435
    Jeff Keppinger           2007     .402     278
    Adam Dunn                2002     .400     676
    Back to Brandon Phillips for a moment, his 30/30 season is the second time the Reds have had a middle infielder achieve that feat, the third overall (Eric Davis) however it also is a season that saw Brandon taking only 32 walks, making him only the 4th player in MLB history to have a 30/30 season and less then 40 walks.

    Code:
    WALKS                    YEAR      BB       HR       SB
    Alfonso Soriano          2002       23       39       41
    Joe Carter               1987       27       32       31
    Brandon Phillips         2007       33       30       32
    Alfonso Soriano          2005       33       36       30
    Alfonso Soriano          2003       38       38       35
    Sammy Sosa               1993       38       33       36
    BTW In 1966 Pete Rose walked only 37 times in 700 trips to the dish, so Phillips holds the record for the fewest walks by a Red with over 700 PA’s in a season.

    Post strike baseball

    Since the 1996 season only 15 teams have had fewer then 124 HR's in a season, 4 of them this year, including the Angels, the only team worth a darn on the whole list.

    Aside from this season here's the list.

    Code:
    HOMERUNS                 YEAR     HR       OBA      SLG    
    Royals                   2007      102    -.016    -.035

    Twins                    2000      116    -.013    -.037   
    Nationals                2005      117    -.017    -.042   
    Twins                    2007      118    -.008    -.032
    Twins                    1996      118     .006    -.020

    Angels                   2007      123     .007    -.006
    The Yankees meanwhile scored enough runs to tally the 15th best season in Runs by a team since 1900, scoring the most runs in the league since 2000, which was banner offensive year.

    The Reds scored 4.77 R/G in May and still lost 21 of 30...

    Despite our pathetic pen, we were 26-24 in 1 run games. In blowouts... not so much. 18-27.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Less homeruns from the O equals better pitching.

    Only if we trade Dunn for better pitching... (he's the team only tradeable player, IMHO)

    Home Runs down 4.7% in the NL this year and a whopping 11.5% in the AL

    First time since 1993, that the HR/Game ratio is less than 2 in the AL.

    The beginning of a trend? Perhaps. If so, REAL power should be valued at a premium.

    The Reds went 6-1 against the Braves, 9-9 against the Cubs, and 8-7 against the Brewers.

    They also were 4-11 against the Astros and 1-6 with the Nationals. :thumbdown

    I think that's because our "good" bullpen (Weathers and, later, Burton) generally held the 1 run leads. As long as we were winning, we used the better parts of our bullpen. We only lost one game all year in which we lead going into the 9th inning.

    When losing, we went with the others, and they often became worse.

    Actually Dunn might just be the only non-tradeable player that we have on the team. He literally cannot be traded because of his contract. Griffey can be traded but can block a trade. Dunn cannot be traded. I assume that he technically isn't even Reds property until his option is exercised...then he isn't tradeable until the end of June (or is it July)

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I'd say Phillips has a lot more value, that 30/30 makes GM's go gaga
