    A nice article on the Reds defense...

    ...from Sun Deck homie, texasdave. One of the conclusions:

    In 2008 the Reds defense was -42.2 runs compared to the league average defense for 150 games. In 2009 over 150 games they were 46.6 above league average. An 88.8 run improvement for 150 games sounds a lot like a 99 run improvement for 162 games. Maybe it is just coincidence.
    A pretty straight ahead presentation of why the Reds allowed fewer runs in 2009 vs. 2008 (even though the pitching was worse in 2009) without much "stat salad." Check it out!

    Kudos to the defense and to those who made it a priority! Now it's time to level the offense out a bit while keeping the defense strong. Now I believe that the pitching has a good shot of bouncing back some. Although to be fair the pen was great, Homer improved, Cueto improved, Arroyo did what he does, Harang had a better year than before and Only Volquez dropped off from his stellar season in '08. Not real sure where the problem beyond Volquez was, as I thought the 5th starter spot was also better.
