Just looking at some 2009 offensive (read: offensive as in loathsome) numbers here ...
Reds team: .247/.316/.389/.705 in 3,704 plate appearances
Reds on the road: .233/.296/.369/.665 in 1,801 plate appearances
Reds (as a team) sans Joey Votto: .238/.307/.371/.678 in 3,341 plate appearances
Reds Outfielders: .235/.297/.379/.676 in 1,270 plate appearances
Votto/Phillips/Hanigan/Gomes: .304/.381/.499/.880 in 981 plate appearances (just think that two of the four players in that group are the backup catcher and a right-handed platoon outfielder).
Everyone else: .226/.292/.350/.642 in 2,723 plate appearances (that's 73.5 percent of all the team's PAs)
Willy T/Gonzalez/Rosales/Janish/McDonald: .225/.279/.292/.571 in 865 plate appearances (that's 23.4 percent of all the team's PAs)
The 2009 offense has thus far performed about as well as the 2003-05 Reds pitching staff. In other words, historically awful. I really love the fact that nearly three-fourths of the entire team has an on-base percentage of only .292. If anything screams perennial contender, that's it right there.
Anyhow, as a result, we once again open up our arms and gracefully welcome back The Lost Decade.
