    I wouldn't be opposed to seeing Paul get a start, either. It might be time to give Stubbs a couple days i.e. Bruce. His body language is pretty rough right now.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    Or at least hit a bit more. We're not asking for much, here, Stubby, just a .700 OPS maybe, or a little bit more, perhaps league average or something and some better OBP, really, under .300 is just a bit too low. C'mon, now.
    Please, pretty please?

    I would love for him to hit, but the Reds have been waiting on that for a few years. At this point, he's 27 and there's no signs of him cutting down on his strikeouts. There's very little chance he's ever going to hit any more consistently than he is. It's hard to get hits when you're getting mowed down on strikes 30% of the time.

    A little. He's more of a corner guy, but has some speed. The vast majority of his career appearances are in left and right.

    Yeah, but he hasn't responded to Redszone's criticism so I thought maybe we could beg him to hit better.

    Well, I think we've used up our positive reinforcement, so perhaps we should collectively ridicule him relentlessly and he'll deliver lol

    You'd think by now they'd learn to pay attention to Redszone to solve ALL the teams' problems.
