Odd stat

The Reds went into Wednesday tied for last in the NL with 14 home runs in the September. (I was halfway though that sentence when Eddie Encarnacion hit the 15th of the month). The Reds were second in the NL with a .291 batting average for the month.

And they still have a terrible bullpen and only 2 good starting pitchers. Whats the point.

I'd say Keppinger and Hopper for Hamilton and Gonzalez is causing that.

Mastinksi had better figure it all out in Winter Ball, or retire. What an awful player. There's just no way the Reds are going to finish above .500 next year with the same bunch of slobs and talentless youngsters.

Absolutely disgusting.

looks like some abs just opened up for jay bruce ...

looks like the offseason trade market for junior just dried up ...

Having watched junior go down, is it worth the few (possible) extra wins PM can add to his resume? Look at the Cardinals lineup the past several games. Knowing they have no way of winning this division, St.Louis decided to play the backups and let the stars rest. The Reds could learn something from this.

QUOTE JOHN FAY: "Griffey is hitting .270 with seven home runs since the break. But the Reds are hitting .291 this Sept. They hit .226 last Sept. One of the big difference Griffey didn't play most of last Sept."

I beg to differ with you, John. The reason the Reds are hitting so well this Sept is that fact the Hopper and Keppinger are both hitting the hell out of the ball and Dunn is not batting .136 or so like last Sept. Encarnacion is also hitting well and Joey Votto hasn't hurt either. Without Griffey, they might be hitting .300. I don't think Griffey has hit .220 this Sept.
