With the 2015 season winding down, the Reds are destined for 90+ losses one year after dropping 86 games. For the second year in a row, the general feeling surrounding the club’s performance seems confined to a limited sorrow-filled breadth ranging between an upcoming trip to the dentist’s office and attending the wedding of a […]

From Cincinnati.com: The entire article is a good read, but about last year’s “big two” on the bench (Valdez/Cairo): Actually, to describe the performances of Valdez and Cairo as ‘‘holes’’ is kind. Valdez may have had had the worst offensive season in Reds history — and Cairo wasn’t far behind. For players with a minimum […]

Homer Bailey (26) is entering his second of three arbitration years. He is eligible to become a free agent after the 2014 season.

I refuse to get my hopes up about anything relating to the Reds, but I’d certainly be pleased if the Reds gave Aroldis Chapman a serious look as a starting pitcher. Jon Heyman (take this for what it’s worth) says the Reds are looking to do just that. Go read the piece; evidently, the Reds […]

Todd Frazier was named Major League Baseball Players Association Players Choice Award as the National League’s outstanding rookie Monday evening. All ballots for this award were submitted by the players. “It means a lot. It’s the ultimate award, I think, because the players vote,” Frazier said. “They understand the game. They understand how hard it […]

The Reds had six finalists for this year’s Gold Glove awards. In order to perfectly cap off this terrible October, they went — of course — zero for six.
