Free agency officially kicked off on Friday at 5 p.m. The Reds need starting pitching. You can connect the dots there. Before the dominoes start falling over, it’s time to evaluate all the options and determine who Dick William and Co. will pursue. Part one of this series looked at the best potentially available starters […]

It’s been said ad naseam: To compete in 2019 and beyond, the Reds need better pitching. Now that the World Series has ended and the offseason is officially underway, it’s time to start discussing the options. The team will almost certainly opt for multiple external candidates this offseason. President of baseball operations Dick Williams has […]

With another 90-loss season in the history books and no discernible improvement from the Reds’ pitching staff, the conversation surrounding the Reds for the next five months will center around trade rumors and free agent signings. But before those talks begin, it’s time to put a bow on the 2018 campaign and what we learned […]

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 […]
