While these stats dont factor in the pitcher there is a strong chance based on these individual stats that the Reds team offense will be better in 2009 than 2008. That is why i am optimistic about this season.

Everyone competing for regular playing time this year had a higher average last year than the Reds team average other than Gomes, Jones and Ward. If Taveras, Keppinger and one of Gomes, Jones and Ward bounce back to their 2007 stats this Reds offense will be much better than last year.

These stats also dont factor in speed or stolen bases.
