I'm not sure why this has never been brought up, maybe it has. Why does Brook Jacoby still have a job with the Reds? Our approach at the plate as a team (other than Votto and Hanigan) is horrible. We strike out way too much, 6th most in the NL. OBP is just as bad at .315 (21st in the majors) 21st in runs in the majors as well...Those are 3 very important stats that we rank below average on and no one is calling for Jacoby's head, why? This lineup has PLENTY of potential, also I don't see any changes ever being made. Perfect example: Drew Stubbs. Has his bunting gotten better? no. Approach to the plate better? No, and we all know about the strikeouts. What kills me is that he still has the same approach and stance and everything! A good hitting coach could tinker with some things and at least make him a .250 hitter! The playoffs should have taught us that contact hitters is what its all about. A team that strikes out a lot is doomed in the playoffs when going up against nothing but other teams aces. I don't know any good candidates out there to take the job but we need something new, our offense will kill us every October with the approach we have.
