The Harvey effect is real. Since acquiring Matt Harvey from the Mets on May 8th the Reds have won 6 of 7 games. They just recently had their longest win streak of the season snapped and have looked like a completely different team than they did two weeks ago. Harvey’s pitching expertise has clearly rubbed […]

Jose Peraza has had a good month. Over the past 28 days (24 games) Peraza is batting .337 with a .360 OBP and .823 OPS. If the season were only 24 games old, Peraza would be top 5 in the National League in batting average, top 30 in OBP, and have a higher OPS than […]

The Reds are in a bad place right now. I know it, you know it, and the front office knows it. The Reds’ starting pitching has been awful, their bullpen has been subpar, their defense has been anemic, and their offense has been atrocious. The Reds are last in all of baseball in run differential […]

Reds baseball, and Opening Day more specifically, has been a central theme of my family ever since I can remember. It’s been woven into the fabric of my family’s life and has provided the back drop for some of my fondest memories and major life events. I can remember like yesterday my late mother forging […]

In the days leading up to Opening Day, we’ll be previewing The State Of The Reds at every single position on the field. Check out the previous installments of our Redleg Nation 2018 Season Preview series: Catcher | Shortstop | Second Base  | Bullpen Since 2014 center field for the Cincinnati Reds has been branded with Billy Hamilton’s spectacular defense and his […]

Zack Cozart is in the midst of the best season of his career. The first time all-star and donkey owner is currently batting .312 with a .403 OBP and .983 OPS. He’s on pace to hit more home runs and RBIs than he ever has and has continued to show the rock solid defense that […]

Let’s go back roughly fifteen years ago. The year was 2003. The Reds finished the season 69-93, fifth in the NL Central, and had guys like Jimmy Haynes, Jose Guillen, and Austin Kearns manning the leaky ship that was the 2003 Cincinnati Reds. That same year the Reds drafted a right handed pitcher by the […]

Hamilton, Duvall, Schebler, Winker…four names to occupy three spots in the Reds’ outfield. At the end of the day it’s a good problem to have, but the Reds’ front office will have to make some decisions in the near future regarding what they want their outfield of the future to look like. Although it’s a […]

Home runs, blown saves, and a habit of breaking your heart: these are the things that defined the Reds’ bullpen in 2016. Not even a year later, what was a major detriment for the Reds in 2016 has turned out to be a major catalyst for them in 2017. Stale inconsistent veteran pitching has been […]

Zack Cozart is off to a hot start. He’s one of the main reasons for the Reds early season success and has shown that he is fully recovered from the right knee injury that ended his season in 2015 and the sore Achilles tendon that ended his season in 2016. Although it’s early in the […]

A little over a month ago Dilson Herrera was traded from the Mets in exchange for Red’s right fielder Jay Bruce. Herrera is a 22 year old right handed second baseman of Columbian decent. He was signed by the Pirates in 2010, spent a few seasons in their farm system, and was eventually traded to […]

Bryan Price is in a tough spot. He’s currently managing one of the worst teams in baseball, is a lame duck manager, and has the obligation to help one of the younger teams in the league continue to develop and blossom until the fat lady sings in October. The Reds currently have 46 wins, second […]
