It is Monday of All Star week which means it is Home Run Derby Day. In commemoration of the day, Redleg Nation decided to stage its own mythical Reds All Time Home Run Derby. Welcome to Crosley Riverfront Ball Park. The action is about to begin. First, a few words about our rules. Home Runs […]

Vote for Reds to play in the All-Star Game. It’s easy and quick. Zack Cozart leads NL shortstops in fWAR by far. Joey Votto is in a tough category, but with Freddie Freeman’s injury and Anthony Rizzo getting off to a slow start, Votto has a chance with strong support. Eugenio Suarez is second at 3B. […]

It’s Memorial Day, the unofficial first day of summer, and the Cincinnati Reds are 24-25, one game below .500. It’s a little surprising, given that some people predicted this team would lose 100 games in 2017. The team’s success is reflected in certain players’ individual success. It’s that individual success that has some players in […]

At times in past seasons, Zack Cozart has been a player Reds fans loved to complain about because of his poor hitting. This season, Cozart has been one of the bright spots for the Reds, so much so that he has replaced the struggling Jose Peraza in the second position of the lineup. In 24 […]

My favorite day of the entire summer is here. Today will mark the 87th MLB All-Star Game, which will begin at 8:00 PM on FOX. The American League has won 3 straight games, and 15 of the last 19 games that didn’t end in a tie. The Reds will be represented by Adam Duvall and Jay […]

One of my favorite nights of the entire year: the HOME RUN DERBY! It will get underway tonight at 8:00 PM on ESPN from Petco Park. The home run derby is one of those fun nights, where you really never know what can happen….except for lots of back, back, back, back, back, back, back. I don’t […]

See, I told you the pitching and the hitting and the baserunning were all fixed. We may now reasonably expect a 1.000 winning percentage for the remainder of the season. Rubber game of a series of 3 between we (31-54) and they (52-31.) EMBRYOS TO BE NAMED LATER Congratulations to our pity All-Star, Adam Duvall, who […]

Voting has begun for the MLB All-Star Game, to be played July 12 at San Diego’s Petco Park. A few minutes ago, the league released the current standings in National League voting and Zack Cozart remains fifth in the voting for shortstops. Cozart is worthy of All-Star recognition. He is among league leaders in batting average, […]

Which four players have had the biggest impact on your franchise’s history? That’s the question MLB is asking fans to answer. Each team has a ballot that has been narrowed by a panel in conjunction with the thirty franchises down to eight players, with a slot for write-in choices. Fans can place their votes between […]

Imagine it is Spring Training 1988. The Reds, a decade removed from their Big Red Machine heyday, now have a third-year shortstop by the name of Barry Larkin and are managed by former machine hero Pete Rose. With a rotation anchored by Tom Browning and newly acquired Danny Jackson, the Reds were on the upturn […]
