The Reds four full season minor league teams open play two weeks from now. The AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos, A+ Daytona Tortugas, and A Dayton Dragons all begin play on Thursday, April 5th. The AAA Louisville Bats start their season the following day on Friday, April 6th. I figured it would be best to not […]

The job of a baseball beat writer is formulaic, though demanding. Follow the team, interview the players, coaches and front office personnel when permitted. File safe, timely reports. Keep the fans informed about the basics of their team while fending off clichés and deadlines. The beat writer job isn’t what it used to be — […]

The Reds sweep the Brewers who are a team in the playoff hunt. That’s nice, but it’s not helping the Reds outlook in next years draft. They are now on pace for a 70 -92 record for the season. This would currently be good for the 7th spot in next year’s draft. They’re going to […]

But the team has some good problems, too, namely an abundance of outfielders and infielders. Even with Zack Cozart set to become a […]

It’s hard to believe that there is just about three weeks remaining in the regular season for the Reds minor league teams. We’ll be keeping any eye out to see who the Reds might recall for reinforcements when the rosters expand come the first of September. Let’s check out what is going on down on […]

The Reds acquired two new players last Friday. The Reds acquired Minor League outfielder Randy Ventura from the Braves on Friday in exchange for international bonus pool space. The 20 year old RF is a switch hitter who is spending his first season this year in full season A ball and is listed as 5-9 […]
