    Season summary

    In the offseason before the season started, the Reds changed their ownership and their general manager. One key pickup was pitcher Bronson Arroyo. The Reds finished in third place in the NL Central division, just 3½ games behind the division winner and eventual World Series champion, the St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds also finished 2 games behind the second place team, the Houston Astros. They finished five games ahead of the fourth place team, the Milwaukee Brewers. They finished thirteen games ahead of the fifth place team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and fourteen games ahead of the sixth place team, the Chicago Cubs.

    Aaron Harang led the team in wins with 16, and National League All-Star Bronson Arroyo was second with 14.[1]

    The Reds finished in 12th out of 16 teams in the National League in attendance.[1]

    Scott Hatteberg led the team in batting average and on-base percentage, with .289 and .389, respectively. Adam Dunn led the team in slugging percentage, games played, at bats, plate appearances, runs, total bases, home runs, runs batted in, walks, intentional walks, strikeouts, extra-base hits, and times on base. Edwin Encarnación led the team in doubles (with 33) and hit by pitch (13 times). Ryan Freel had more stolen bases and times caught stealing than anyone else on the team, with 37 and 11, respectively.[1]
