The Reds and Brewers conclude their 2018 season series tonight with game 3 of the current set at Miller Park. With a win, the Reds can record a series victory over the Brewers and pull to an even 3-3 on their current road trip  before moving on to Miami for 4 games to conclude the […]

Just as we approached the Roebling Bridge, the skies opened with a vengeance. We knew a storm was coming, but we had no idea just how potent it would be, and by the time we crossed into Ohio, we were completely drenched. Surely there were better ways to spend our free time and disposable income […]

Over at on Tuesday I looked at the combination of the players on the farm between their contact ability and their ability to hit for power. You should probably give that a read if you already haven’t. It was that article, though, that led me down the rabbit hole to one of the players […]

Sure, it was just one game. Four innings. But Michael Lorenzen’s performance tonight was a much-needed dose of “maybe next year can be better” for Reds fans. He looked as overpowering and dominant as any Reds starter this year. Lorenzen had Brewers hitters off balance and retired the last seven batters he faced. He commands […]

Tonight the Reds and Brewers meet in the middle game of the current three game series at Miller Park. The Brewers will be looking to solidify their hold atop NL wildcard race 3.5 games clear of the #3 team in the wildcard chase, the Colorado Rockies, and hoping perhaps still to catch the Cubs for […]

After Eugenio Suarez allowed a grounder to roll between his legs, right after he and Scooter Gennett couldn’t be bothered to hold on to the ball on simple, consecutive tag plays, and right after Suarez airmailed a throw to first base, it occurred to me last night that watching the Reds had become morbid habit, […]

The end of the 2018 season is rapidly approaching, and there are fewer answers in the Reds’ starting rotation than there were at the beginning of the year. It’s the most glaring weakness remaining for the team as it hopes to end its rebuild in the near future. The offense is one of the better […]

Having made the 100 mile trip north up the west  shore of Lake Michigan from Chicago to Milwaukee, the Reds take on the Brewers in the first  game of a three game set tonight. The Brewers (85-65) hold the #1 position in the NL wildcard chase 3 games clear of the Dodgers and Cardinals who […]

I’ve been concerned for a while that the Reds, while in the midst of a 17th losing season in 22 years, have lost an entire generation of fans. I tried to put that into words in my latest column for Cincinnati Magazine: You have to go back five full years since the Reds last played […]

The Reds swept the Chicago Cubs in a four games series in Cincinnati in June. Since then, before today, the Reds were 1-8 against the Cubs. Today’s win makes the Reds 8-11 for the season series. That’s the best record for the Reds against any NL Central opponent. The Reds are 24-46 in the division […]

It’s the final game of the season against the Cubs (87-61), and the Reds (63-86) will try to end the series on a high note. After starting the season 7-3 against Chicago, Cincinnati has now fallen in its last eight games to their division rival. In the first two games of the current series, the […]
