I feel like I need to post this, for the sake of posterity. This happened earlier this week. When you come at the king, you best not miss.

Remember when Steve Jobs invented the iPhone and then invented Siri and then uninvented the idea of a personal assistant because he had already invented the iPhone and Siri? Well, Bronson Arroyo clearly didn’t know anything about that, because he made the highly questionable to decision to hire a living, breathing personal assistant and as […]

Spring training is upon us, Redleg fans! Sure, last year was rough, but this year things could be different. They just need a few breaks! Here are the 7 things that will really determine if this is the year the Reds will contend again. The 25th man on the bench – It’s true!!! This player […]

There are only two things guaranteed to make me cry: 1) Listening to the Hamilton soundtrack all the way through; and 2) watching clips of servicemen and women surprising their loved ones for the holidays. I don’t know what that list says about me or my emotions but I also don’t care because yesterday both of […]

If you have ever run a blog, you know that webspace providers usually have a fairly comprehensive behind-the-scenes analytics breakdown. For example, on the new Redleg Nation, we can see what time people are visiting our site, what country they are from, what websites sent them here, etc. Redleg Nation is the largest Reds blog […]

Chad and I have started the discussion about having a “Redleg Nation” gathering again this summer… This is basically an “open thread” on what team you’d like to see, how much you’d like to pay for tickets, how many tickets you would buy, etc. My feeling is that a Saturday night is the best time […]

In a stunning and unprecedented move, the Cincinnati Reds, firmly in first place in the NL Central Division for much of the year and currently leading by 8.5 games over the second place St. Louis Cardinals, decided to end their season at the 141 game mark, calling it a day and ceding first place to […]

I think we might have mentioned this before, but the Cincinnati Reds have the best record in baseball. They’ve won an incredible 20 of their last 23 games. A stretch so magnificent that Marty Brennaman will have his head shaved after the game, reportedly on the field. “Earlier this season, Brennaman and Reds bench coach […]

[Camera: From the front seat of Bill’s car we see the mind-boggling traffic. It’s mid-morning, but darkly overcast. “Waiting For The Sun,” by The Doors plays in the background.] BILL (voice over): I was going to the worst place in the world, and I didn’t even know it yet. My destination was twenty miles down […]

**(A little bit of gallows humor to take our minds off of recent 438 ft. events. This is satire. Similarities to actual people are purely on purpose.) [Camera: Ohio maple trees rustle in front of Great American Ball Park viewed through the veil of a dream. Red and black smoke from Rozzi fireworks wafts through […]

I am by no means a fashion expert, but you’ve got to think that the guy who was traded to Florida for Jorge Cantu is not the jersey you are breaking out to wear on opening day. If the best option hanging in your closet is that of an obscure reliever who threw less than […]

I love this. We need to start exploiting market inefficiencies here at Redleg Nation. Chad DotsonBlame Chad for creating this mess. Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available […]
