Other teams would love to pry Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon and Tony Cingrani from the Reds. But that’s their one strong suit right now, the one part of the equation that is more than doing its job.
The offense is non-existent. On Sunday, they put the first batter on base five times in the first seven innings. In two of those innings they put their first two runners on base.
Batting a .250 EqA guy at the top of their lineup can't be helping.
Baseball Prospectus had him projected to a .233 TAv, and he's hit for a .235 TAv. Expecting him to continue at 311/344/459 is just wishcasting. There's no basis for that; it would be better than his 90th percentile projection.
Neftali Soto (who?)
Why does Hamilton "only" have a 75% success rate on steals, anyway? 15-5 doesn't seem to justify the mega-hype.
no idea about the reds farm system. maybe there is some juice tehre to help out
If they wanted to trade Joey Votto or Jay Bruce or Brandon Phillips or Homer bailey it would be difficult to shed their big contracts.
That's either a lot of scores from 3B (is the #2 batter SHing a lot?) or a lot of XBH behind him.
They were 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position.
This only works if you're Billy Beane and I'm not sure even Beane knows why his #### works in the regular season.
