The Reds are exactly half way through the season. Let's see how they project at this current pace. It's a stupid process, but who cares, they're playing stupidly.
Offense: 668 runs, 280 doubles, 150 HR, 94 SB, 100 SH
It would be the fewest runs scored by a Reds team since 1997. It'd be the fewest home runs by the team since 1998. It'd be the most sacrifice hits by the Reds since 1969.
Willy Taveras: 32 SB, 80 runs, 30 walks, 24 extra base hits, 16 bunt hits
- The 24 XBH would be the 2nd most of his career. The 32 SB would be considerably less than 100. The real race is for a .300 OBP. Can he get there? Also, his OPS+ is 55. Corey Patterson finished at 48 in 2008.
Jerry Hairston Jr.: 128 hits, 80 runs, 26 doubles, 14 home runs, 48 RBI
- All would be career highs. This from a guy who is batting .258/.313/.403 this season
Joey Votto: 130 hits, 26 doubles, 20 HR, 82 RBI, 1.061 OPS
- It would be the highest OPS by a Red with more than 500 PAs ever.
Brandon Phillips: 148 hits, 82 runs, 28 doubles, 6 triples, 22 HR, 106 RBI, 22 SB
- He'd be the first Red not named Adam Dunn to top 100 RBI since Ken Griffey Jr. did it in 2000.
Jay Bruce: 124 hits, 76 runs, 24 doubles, 36 HR, 82 RBI, 118 strikeouts
- Bruce leads the Reds in strikeouts and he's on pace for 118. Thankfully Dunn is gone so this team can score some runs now.
Ramon Hernandez: 126 hits, 24 doubles, 10 HR, 66 RBI
- Team MVP and clutch RBI guy, indeed.
Ryan Hanigan: 46 hits, 16 runs, 4 doubles, 1 HR
- Just kidding, those are his numbers right now. Then again, maybe he won't play anymore.
Pitching/Defense: 754 runs allowed, 188 HR allowed, 1074 strikeouts, 628 walks
- It would be the fewest runs allowed since 1999, the fewest HR since 2002, the most strikeouts since 1999, and the most walks since 2000.
Aaron Harang: 10-16, 3.86 ERA, 176 strikeouts, 48 walks
- It'd be a damn shame if Harang ends up with more losses than wins again this season.
Johnny Cueto: 16-10, 3.45 ERA, 158 strikeouts, 70 walks
- And two games where he gives up 9 runs in an inning.
Bronson Arroyo: 16-16, 5.85 ERA, 108 strikeouts, 82 walks
- Harang hates Arroyo, I know it.
Micah Owings: 12-16, 4.48 ERA, 112 strikeouts, 88 walks
- and 6 home runs hit!
Francisco Cordero: 2-4, 1.80 ERA, 40 saves in 42 chances
- He'd be the first Red to reach 40 saves since 2004 and only the 4th to do it in team history.
