Really? You say the reds have on one to blame?
I don't think that's what you say.
But I could be wrong.

Here are stats for two players, showing their average performances
over a 162 game season.
Player A: .249 avg/.383 obp/.518 slg, 40 homers, 97 RBI, career 132 OPS
+, lead league in strikeouts 3 times.
Player B: .262 avg/.356 obp/.490 slg, 32 homers, 98 RBI, career 139 OPS
+, lead league in strikeouts 5 times.
Which one is a Hall of Famer with 4 rings, and which one is the reason
why his franchises are perennial losers? How can you tell the
difference? Honest answers only, please - no looking up the names
until after you submit your guess!

When I get pissed I type fast and transpose letters.

You got it in one, John! Their career averages are very similar, and
Reggie Jackson is actually the all-time strikeout leader in MLB
history. He also made the playoffs 11 times, with three different
franchises. Jackson shares the all-time strikeout top ten with Willie
Stargell, Mike Schmidt and Tony Perez, each one a Hall of Famer and
champion. Strikeouts are no fun to watch, but they really just don't
mean anything about how good or bad a player is.
