"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
We're bad again. Feels bad, man.
Against righties, Votto has a career wOBA of .414 while Phillips had a wOBA of .315. Thats a difference of 52 runs or 5 WAR over 600 PAs..... Against righties, Phillips is really miscast at the cleanup bat that splits the lefties.
Reds are scoring .17 runs a game below league average. 12 games against the leagues two best pitching staffs.
Yeah, they could use another bat, but it's not as bad as it seems.
