Only one team in the National League is worse than the Reds at all 3 "slash stats" (AVG/OBP/SLG). That team is the San Diego Padres, who are averaging a pathetic 3.63 runs per game this season, nearly a half run worse than the Reds. Then again, they play in a cavernous pitcher's park, so they have a bit of an excuse.

Of course, they also have the 2nd worst pitching staff in the NL, surrendering 5.09 R/G on the season, 0.3 runs worse than the Reds. This is why they are 7 games behind the Reds this season, even with the Reds playing as poorly as they have been playing.

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Homer Bailey made it look like he was a solid cog of the future? I want that back.

Remember a couple of months ago, when the Reds were swept by the Padres in San Diego? I want payback.

Remember how tasty ribs dripping in barbecue sauce are? I want baby back.
