    Will this Reds team be worst ever batting average wise?

    With only one regular player, Jesse Winker, currently batting over .250, it got me wondering if this may be the worst modern Reds team ever batting average wise. I know it will be the worst team average for a playoff team in Reds history, if we do end up making it. After todayís game, 20 Sep, the teamís overall batting average is .213 !! Hard to believe we are playing .500 baseball with that average! Thank goodness for our pitching staff. Letís continue that playoff push.

    Just remember re: batting average. The Pirates tied for the NL lead in 2019 in batting average and also had the fewest strikeouts.

    Since this is the worst, and first to have a DH all season, it seems obvious how to fix it. We need to let the pitchers bat again.

    Will be the team's highest BB% of all time (11.6% vs 10.9% in 1974) and may be the highest isolated slugging (ISO), .190 vs. .185 in 2005. With more singles falling in, this would be a darn good offense.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    For me, it would take a lot more singles to make it interesting. Itís very hard to watch this offense.
    May the Lord bless
