Sometimes things just click. Sometimes they just fall into place. Sometimes good things happen to people who work hard. All of those things happened to Keury Mella in 2018. The 6’2” starting righthanded pitcher began the season at Pensacola (Class AA) and he had a breakout season for the Blue Wahoos. Mella was obtained by […]

With the trade deadline looming and the Reds being rumored to be in the mix for making some deals, I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to see them do. Not so much as to which players are dealt and which ones are coming back, but more so, what is the plan and intent behind […]

The Reds traded 27 year old RHP Dylan Floro, 29 year old RHP Zach Neal, and International signing money to the Los Angeles Dodgers for 19 year old RHP James Marinan and 21 year old RHP Aneurys Zabala. This was a deal in which the Reds bought low and sold high with Dylan Floro to […]
