Welcome to Redleg Nation!

In my travels around the baseball blogosphere, I’ve been amazed by the level of analysis and dedication of fans from various Major League Baseball teams. There are some great writers and obsessed fans of every team out there, and it’s impressive.

Something else I’ve noticed is the relative dearth of blogs focused on the Cincinnati Reds. I’m talking quantity here, not quality; there are several excellent Reds blogs out there (they’re in my Redleg Nation Blogs blogroll to the right), and they’re all daily reads for me. However, where there are a dozen or more blogs devoted to a lot of teams, there are currently only a handful of Reds blogs.

Enter Redleg Nation. We’re going to be different than the other Reds blogs; as far as I can tell, this is the first group blog devoted to the oldest professional baseball club. Since we will have several contributors, expect the blog to be updated frequently.

You should know up front that we’re obsessed with the Cincinnati Reds, and we’re proud of it. Most of all, we would like this to become a place where Reds fans can gather (feel free to comment liberally!) to discuss the best team baseball has to offer — and be obsessed together.

So thanks for dropping by, and I hope you’ll return often. My name is Chad, by the way, and you’ll be meeting the fellow Redleg Nation bloggers over the next day or so. We look forward to getting to meet you — for you are the heart of Redleg Nation.

Hopefully, together we can follow the Reds right back to the World Series — where they belong.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.

  1. Welcome! Comments work.

  2. I thought you deserved at least one comment! I have followed Redlegs Nation for over 5 years but have never commented. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the commentary and I especially enjoy the articles that utilize advanced statistics. Thanks for creating this site!

  3. Tim, what a wonderful idea and sentiment. The Old Cossack seconds your thoughts. Thank-you Chad for all the time, effort and commitment (incuding the financial aspects) to the fulfillment of a dream and sharing that dream with so many appreciative fans. I also echo those sentiments to ALL the past and present editors who have contributed to the endless hours of enjoyment and interaction from those efforts.

  4. Is Chad putting the band back together? Miss seeing Bill, Chad, Richard, Chris, and other “oldtimers” not posting as many pieces.

    • Should have mentioned Jason, his thoughts I tend to align with the most. Jason pits more articles than the others but still would like to see more; always thoughtful and his genuine passion for all things Reds is evident.
