    Reds lack of hitting over the last month

    The good news is that in September so far, heading into the last game of the month, the Reds are 14-11. The bad news is that they have been outscored 72 to 78 runs, and that they are averaging only 2.88 runs per game this month.

    I am worried about the hitting as they head into the playoffs. Here are the hitting stats over the last 30 days, in descending order of batting average, players with 15+ monthly ABs:

    Joey Votto: .333/.528/.429 for an OPS of .957, 0 HRs.
    Xavier Paul: .314/368/.400 for an OPS of .768, 0 HRs.
    Miguel Cairo: .313/.313/.375 for an OPS of .688, 0 HRs.
    Dioneer Navarro: .304/.333/.413 for an OPS of .746. 0 HRs.
    Ryan Ludwick: .291/.385/.400 for an OPS of .785, 1 HR.
    Zach Cozart: .286/.333/.429 for an OPS of .762, 1 HR.
    Jay Bruce: .234/.308/.543 for an OPS of .850, 7 HRs.
    Ryan Hanigan: .224/.283/.265 for an OPS of .548, 0 Hrs.
    Brandon Phillips: .214/.267/.327 for an OPS of .593, 3 HRs.
    Chris Heisey: .211/.318/.316 for an OPS of .634, 1 HR.
    Todd Frazier: .192/.250/.274 for an OPS of .524, 1 HR.
    Scott Rolen: .191/.250/.277 for an OPS of .527, 1 HR.
    Wilson Valdez: .182/.234/.205 for an OPS of .439, 0 HRs.
    Drew Stubbs: .167/.231/.167 for an OPS of .397, 0 HRs.

    It's like when Joey came back, everyone else decided to quit hitting. And this is the average over the last 30 days, so it's not just a short slump, but really a month long slump. Hopefully they can pull out of it for the playoffs....
