    The Offense

    Averaging over 7 RPG the last three games, and nearly 6 over the last 6 games (and that includes a shutout).

    Are they finally starting to bust out?

    Let's hope it was only a prolonged slump, and they have broken out of it.

    Yes they are, IMO. This isn't the 2005 offense, but it was only a matter of time until they actually started playing up to their capabilities.

    Re: The Offense

    if we can get the game tomorrow with Cueto going against Perez I think we can make a run with Harang and Volquez starting the first 2 against the fins.... we also face a rookie in the 1st game, Hendrickson the 2nd, Nolasco the 3rd game, and Andrew Miller in the 4th game... win tomorrow, take 3 of 4 from the fins and we have ourselves a 19-23 record... Let's do it!

    Have the Reds hit more that a 2 run homer this year? I can't recall any at all.

    The offense is picking up in spite of Dunn and Griffey.

    EE's walk off was a three run shot.

    Dunn is still slumping, but Griffey is starting to come around. He's been very good his last 5 games, offensively.

    The offense has been coming around the last week or so.

    In that time, Dunn has an OPS of .997.

    If only either Hatteberg or Votto batted right-handed.

    Yeah because we really need to replace Votto's .367/.457/.700/1.157 line vs. LHP.

    The Reds' issues have not been LH pitching:

    2008 vs. LHP: .263 BA/.351 OBP/.427 SLG
    2008 vs. RHP: .246 BA/.310 OBP/.410 SLG

    The Reds' offensive issues have been solely due to a manager who can't figure out a lineup card. The offense would be perfectly fine without Baker's meddling. The rest is all about a former GM (Krivsky) who put together a pitching staff that simply isn't as advertised. I'm cringing as to what will happen when Edinson Volquez normalizes. It's going to be ugly and folks are going to be peeved.
