Re: MLB Thread 2013
The Reds have had a weird first month of the season. They are banged up, and the pieces they are missing, for whatever reason, have been harder to replace than Joey Votto last year. The overall offensive numbers rank somewhat favorably for them, but this team goes through long droughts, and waste a number of good pitching outings. They just seem "low energy" at times. I think they will bounce out of the doldrums, but it seems like they could use a high energy player at times. You know you aren't getting that out of the dugout. Dusty Baker is calm--to a fault.
