The end of the 2018 season is rapidly approaching, and there are fewer answers in the Reds’ starting rotation than there were at the beginning of the year. It’s the most glaring weakness remaining for the team as it hopes to end its rebuild in the near future. The offense is one of the better […]

It’s the final game of the season against the Cubs (87-61), and the Reds (63-86) will try to end the series on a high note. After starting the season 7-3 against Chicago, Cincinnati has now fallen in its last eight games to their division rival. In the first two games of the current series, the […]

The days when the Reds (63-85) were atop the NL Central and the Cubs (86-61) were rebuilding seem like centuries ago. Last night, the Reds dropped their seventh straight game to their division foes to make a 90-loss season look even more likely. Cincinnati would have to finish its last 14 games with a 10-4 record […]

As the baseball season winds to an end and attention starts turning to football, the Reds (63-84) are quietly heading to Chicago this weekend looking to make some sort of impact in the NL Central race — even if it’s not the type of impact they hoped for when the season began. They’re set to […]

This was the year Luis Castillo was going to establish himself as the ace of the Cincinnati Reds. He was their beacon of hope for the future of the pitching staff. The player who was supposed to fill the enormous shoes left behind by Johnny Cueto three years ago. It was easy to get excited […]

The sweep of the Giants last weekend seems like a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The Reds’ (56-74) trip to Chicago has gone about as well as you’d expect for a last-place team playing a first-place club. In every sense of the word, the Cubs (75-53) have dominated this series, […]

Following yesterday’s strange news that Matt Harvey wouldn’t be traded, the even more concerning news that Bob Castellini had once again stuck his nose into baseball operations, and a crushing walk-off defeat to the Cubs (74-53), the Reds (56-73) could really use a win to lift the collective spirit of the fanbase again. Fortunately, the […]

It’s a rare Friday afternoon affair for the Reds (56-72) today. The club is looking to bounce back from a pair of lifeless games that saw them lose by a combined score of 11-1. Joey Votto and Scott Schebler are due back from the disabled list later this weekend, but in the meantime, the Reds […]

The stretch of five straight series against division foes continues this evening for the Reds (56-71). After dropping two of three contests against the Brewers to begin the week, the competition won’t get any easier as the team travels to Chicago for the first of four games against the first-place Cubs (72-53). The teams last […]

It’s easy to forget now, but at one point, Cody Reed was one of the most highly prized pitching prospects in the game. As recently as 2016, he was rated the Reds’ No. 2 prospect and was the 34th-ranked prospect in baseball, per Baseball America. There was legitimate hope that he’d become a top-of-the-rotation arm […]

Can the Reds (52-65) just play first-place teams the rest of the season? The team pulled off a come-from-behind victory last night on the heels of another strong pitching performance to win the series over the Diamondbacks (64-54). Per Nick Kirby, Cincinnati is now 22-12 against teams atop their respective divisions since May 10. The […]
