The Short Version: Reds jump out to an early lead thanks to Joey Votto and Scooter Gennett, but it is short-lived as the Rockies win going away. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (19-35) 2 9 0 Colorado Rockies (28-25) 8 14 0 W: Marquez (4-5) L: Harvey (1-3) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score […]

One of the critical aspects of a rebuild cycle such as the one the Reds are currently in is to take a good look at young talent to learn as much as you can about their current abilities and future potential. One name flying way under the radar this season is Alex Blandino. Despite functioning […]

The Short Version: Scooter Gennett has five hits and made a game-saving defensive play to lead the Reds to a one-run win. Baseball is fun! Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (19-34) 6 11 0 Colorado Rockies (27-25) 5 11 0 W: Lorenzen (1-0) L: Rusin (0-1) S: Hughes (3) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box […]

Last night’s opener in Denver went like many games have for the Reds (18-34) in years past. Although they jumped out to an early 4-1 lead, they couldn’t hold onto the advantage, ultimately losing 5-4 to drop their all-time record in Coors Field to 40-60. They’ll look to get back in the win column against […]

Imagine, for a minute, that you make it to the major leagues and you’re just 19 years old. Imagine you hit a grand slam home run in your second game. Imagine you win a starting position as a 20-year old and put together a WAR of 6.5 and only one other player in baseball history […]

The Short Version: The Reds led 4-1 after three innings — thanks largely to good ol’ Eugenio Suarez — but Sal Romano can’t hang on. Reds lose. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (18-34) 4 8 0 Colorado Rockies (27-24) 5 8 0 W: Gray (5-6) L: Romano (2-6) S: Davis (18) FanGraphs Win Probability […]

It’s fair to say that, as a married woman looking to move, that my life has now become a battle against crap.  Although the veteran of at least two dozen moves, this happened to me once before, when I was a bachelorette resident of Daytona Beach, Home of the Shell Yeah Angry Minor League Turtles, […]

The Short Version: Cincinnati rides a strong start from Luis Castillo and five hits from rookies (Brandon Dixon and Jesse Winker) — plus a little grand slam from Eugenio Suarez — to a series victory over the Pirates. Final R H E Pittsburgh Pirates (27-22) 4 7 1 Cincinnati Reds (18-33) 5 8 0 W: […]

The Reds and Pirates meet this afternoon in a 12:35 matinee at GABP to close out the series and homestand for the Reds.  Last night was a tough 12 inning loss for the Reds. If you had to get to bed before the game ended you can check out the RLN recap here.  Despite the loss […]

I was joined by Jason Linden again this week, and Jason had a bone to pick. But before that conversation, we discussed the promises made by Reds owner Bob Castellini when he purchased the franchise, and whether the ownership group had delivered on those pledges. The discussion then turned to whether the Reds will be […]

The Reds recalled IF/OF Brandon Dixon who was hitting .326/.371/.527/.899 at AAA Louisville. The 26 year old utility man lead the Bats with 12 2B, 14 RBI, 8 SB, and 38 SO. Dixon is very versatile as he can play 1B/2B/3B/LF/RF and provides good RH power from the bench. The Reds have also recalled RH […]
