Inconsistencies

September 19, 2013

There has been a lot of discussion on this year’s Reds baseball team.  One week they are the hottest hitting team in the majors and then they go a week without scoring a run.  Jay Bruce is hitting better against left hand pitchers than he is against right handed pitchers.  Last year he couldn’t get a hit off a left hander if his life depended on it.  Then there is Joey Votto.  Half of the time he seems to be in some kind of fog.  He forgets to cover first base, he runs through stop signs, and the expression on his face is best classified as “where am I?”  And yet, he is in the top 10 in almost every hitting category.  Through it all the Reds manage to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot.  I suppose the biggest factor of this year’s team is the absence of Ryan Ludwig for most of the year.  Even though he is back, he seems to be the slowest runner in all of major league baseball.  I don’t recall him being this slow in years past.  It is certain that he can’t be tired, because he has only played for a month.  Then there is Dusty Baker.  I often wonder how his health is doing.  We all know that he had some type of coronary problems last year.  Sometimes you wonder if it maybe was a mini stroke, because some of his decisions seem to be coming out of a dense fog.  Maybe he and Joey Votto are taking the same medicine.  Well, in two weeks we will know whether they are going to be the Cardinals of 2012 or the Cubs when Dusty Baker was their manager.  We don’t have to wait long.
