The baseball regular season resumes on the banks of the Ohio River tonight, as two teams riding waves of resurgence go at it at Great American Ball Park. The Pittsburgh Pirates have won seven of their last eight, including a five-game sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers last weekend. Prior to the break, the Reds won […]

A few weeks back, I wrote a retrospective of the 2005 Houston Astros, who overcame a dreadful 15-30 start to not only reach the postseason, but make it all the way to the World Series. This year’s Reds club also got off to a 15-30 start, so the Astros seemed like the perfect “best case […]

This week at Redleg Nation, we’re running a series of posts celebrating this year’s inductees into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame: Adam Dunn, Dave Bristol, and Fred Norman. As you are no doubt aware, Adam Dunn will be inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this weekend. If you have spent any time […]

Josh The Pilot took me to the first place we lived after we were married a few months ago. It’s a Virginia suburb of DC. I liked living there, but we were so desperately new-married in such an expensive county that the first place we lived together was hung with fear, doubt, and two people […]

Jason Linden and I got together for a far-reaching discussion of the Cincinnati Reds this week. With the Reds playing well into the All-Star break, and with the trade deadline looming, it’s time for some big decisions. We have all the answers. All of them. Music for this episode provided by Freekbass, a big Reds […]

Breathe in, hold for five seconds, and…release. Woosah. What a wild first half for the Reds. After starting the year 3-18 (kind of hard to believe, right?) they battled back and finished the first half 43-53. The Reds saw a manager get fired, the Opening Day starter get injured, the offense turn from joke to […]

The Reds appear to be nearing a pivotal point in the rebuild process. It’s time to strap in and see how they will assemble the final pieces of the this complicated puzzle we call the Reds next winning baseball team. Let’s hope they knock it out of the park. Now let’s see what is going […]

This week at Redleg Nation, we’re running a series of posts celebrating this year’s inductees into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame: Adam Dunn, Dave Bristol, and Fred Norman. On June 11, 1973, the defending National League Champion Cincinnati Reds were routed by the St. Louis Cardinals by a score of 11-5. Their record had […]

The time between now and the July 31 trade deadline may prove as consequential as any two weeks of the Reds multi-year rebuilding process. The team is close to being a contender. That seemed unimaginable in April. But we Reds fans now sense in our bones the wait is months, not years, for a team in […]

The last time that we actually had one of these topics here at Redleg Nation it was nearly two months ago. I figured that today would be a good day to bring it back into the fold. I’m willing to take any question you have and I’ll do my best to give a complete answer […]

Here’s a game thread to discuss tonight’s MLB All-Star Game…or use it as an open thread to discuss whatever you want. As long as you mention Cincinnati’s 2018 All-Stars, Joey Votto, Scooter Gennett, and Eugenio Suarez. Welcome to DC!! #AllStarGame ⭐️⭐️ pic.twitter.com/AMJeQeKJ9c — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) July 16, 2018 What is love? pic.twitter.com/EZFoUFW6O7 — Chad […]

The 1982 baseball season was one of the worst ever for the Cincinnati Reds. They lost 102 games just six years after winning consecutive World Championships. And thanks to the incredible resurgence of the current Reds, a hundred losses isn’t gonna happen in 2018. Far from it. They’re going in the right direction. But you […]
