Frazier: .181 (13-for-72), 1 HR, 5 RBIs
Heisey: .182 (10-for-55), 1 HR, 2 RBIs

Bruce: .228 (21-for-92), 6 HR, 14 RBIs
*This isn’t the kind of momentum the Reds need going to the postseason. But if good records/statistics don’t mean anything in the playoffs, can the same be said about poor ones?
Guess the player. Since September 1st.
71 Plate appearances. 12 singles. 0 Extra base hits. 5 runs scored. 1 run batted in. 27 strike outs (38%). 100% chance of being in the starting lineup in every postseason game.
Think about that. 1 RBI in a month. That works out to 6 in a season. At that rate he would have to play nearly 17 seasons to get to 100 RBIs. LOL.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
The Reds team strikeout rate is 23%. Reds are #21 out of 30 teams in pitches seen. Shows poor plate discipline.
