Active Cincinnati Reds' Killers by Position

There are some players who own a particular team or pitcher.

Some are so good against a particular team that the odds of getting them out seem as low as being struck by lightning.

I have researched and found, by each position, the active players who have had the best success against the Reds.

Let's do this.

We will start with the pitcher and work our way around.

 

Pitcher

Roy Oswalt   23-1,  2.58, 206 IP, 177 H, 165K

When Oswalt starts against the Reds, you may just as well roll over and get some rest.

 

Catcher

Brian McCann  .321/.388,  8 HR, 22 RBI

 

1B

Lance Berkman  .327/.444,  48 HR, 133 RBI

 

2B

Chase Utley   .324/.396,  14 HR,  36  RBI

 

3B

Aramis Ramirez   .336/.391,   26 HR,  103 RBI

 

SS

Rafael Furcal      .331/.392,  13 HR, 41 RBI

 

LF

Jason Bay      .357/.432,    21 HR,   69 RBI

 

CF

Andruw Jones     .297/.384,   31 HR,  79 RBI

 

RF

Brian Giles          .303/.422,  27 HR,  78 RBI

 

That is a pretty good squad in its entirety.

Here are some other players who have very good career stats against the Reds:

Albert Pujols     .361/.438,  40 HR,  118 RBI

Chipper Jones   .305/.388,  21 HR,  76 RBI.

Bay was with the Red Sox last year and I didn't miss him a bit. Now that he's with the Mets we will see him at bat a few times.

I don't know what Jones status is currently or Giles for that matter, but to my knowledge they haven't officially retired.

Maybe with better pitchers we can get those guys out more than six times out of 10.
