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 ⭐️⭐️ — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) July 16, 2018 What is love? — 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 […]

Yesterday, Chad gave us an encouraging update on the Reds young shortstop, Jose Peraza. Among all the positives the Reds offense has given us in the first half, Peraza certainly belongs among the discussion as his play of late has been pretty good. The improvement of his numbers so far, as well as his young […]

Enjoy this great interview with Reds prospect Taylor Trammell, courtesy of Baseball America’s JJ Cooper. Trammell, of course, won the MVP of the MLB All-Star Futures Game this week. If you’re like me, you’ll be really encouraged by Trammell. He a bright, impressive young kid with an equally bright future ahead of him. Now if […]

After a slow start that lingered through the month of May, the 2018 Reds offense has shifted into high gear. It has produced the third most runs in the National League. In June and July, our Reds have outscored the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Brewers, even Cleveland. In fact, they’ve put more runs on […]

Over the last calendar year, representing 580 plate appearances, Reds shortstop Jose Peraza has hit .287/.339/.366 with 151 hits, 18 doubles and 3 triples, 72 runs scored and 46 RBI. He has stolen 25 bases (and was caught stealing 5 times). Peraza is never going to be Barry Larkin at the plate (and he may […]

Here’s my latest column for Cincinnati Magazine: As I predicted a few weeks ago, three Cincinnati Reds have earned trips to this year’s All-Star Game. Joey Votto is going for the sixth time, while Scooter Gennett and Eugenio Suarez will make their first appearances on a National League roster at this year’s Midsummer Classic. Many […]

The Short Version: Jose Peraza breaks an all-time franchise record, but the Reds fall short in the final game of the first game. Despite the loss, the Reds will go into the All-Star break feeling pretty good about taking two of three in both St. Louis and Cleveland. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (43-53) […]

In the last game before the All-Star break, the Reds look to finish the unofficial first half of the season with a three game sweep of the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. First pitch is at 2:15 ET. If the Reds win today, their record will be 44-52 at the break. If they lose, the record will […]
