Comparing the 2014 Reds Lineup to the 2010 Playoff Team
Al Behrman

In 2010, the Cincinnati Reds had one of the best offenses in all of baseball. The team ranked atop the National League in runs scored, batting average, hits, total bases, home runs and slugging percentage, and even managed a second-place finish in on-base percentage.

This year, the Reds feature a lineup that is significantly different from the 2010 version and includes just three players—Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce—who were members of the 2010 team. 

With a lot of turnover, the opportunity presents itself to compare the two offenses and see how this year's club stacks up to the 2010 iteration, which happened to feature one of the better offenses in team history. So, that's what we'll do here.

We kick things off with one of the more volatile positions in the Reds lineup over the past few seasons, catcher.
