Taco MacArthur is an unknown quantity at this point
It's just he doesn't get on base often.

Yup, 2-5 in the order have shown they can bring runs home, if the guys ahead get on base; Hamilton just needs to increase his OBP....350 is decent; 400+ would make this a great offense.

Yes, we've established this hundreds of times. But he's still, even with not getting on base as much as we like, a very above average, effective centerfielder and able to do things in baseball that few can do.

Imagine if he was just average at getting on base. The Reds would be so much better on offense.

We've had dozens and dozens of Reds players over the past decade that we wish could have hit like Joey? He's arguably one of the best offensive players the Reds franchise has ever had.

Billy is already the best player to ever don a Reds jersey. Hitting like Joey would likely cement him as the best baseball player of all time.

Exactly EP and very true.
