Tyler Mahle griped to the media about being pulled in the fifth inning during his last start and many jumped on him. He might have been right after all.
After scuffling for most of the season so far, the Reds only have two more weeks to prove they can contend. Who will they have to depend on and why?
The Reds drafted Nick Lodolo last night, both the best decision the club could possibly make and also the only good decision weirdly enough.
With three bullpen implosions in the past week, maybe it's worth considering whether David Bell has been economical enough with his relievers.
Jose Iglesias has been an unlikely hero of the Reds lineup in the early going, but why? How has the light-hitting shortstop become a force at the plate?
Derek Dietrich can't stop hitting massive home runs and strutting like he's Giancarlo Stanton. What changed with the infielder to provoke such power?
Tucker Barnhart hasn't hit as poorly as the rest of the Reds to start the season, but it still hasn't been pretty. Why has the Reds backstop struggled so?
With only two starts under his belt, Tyler Mahle looks better most of the Reds starters. Should the presumed sixth man stick around when Alex Wood returns?
Another season, another slow start for the Reds. But David Bell isn't Bryan Price, and despite the Reds record, he's proved himself as a capable manager.
Sonny Gray struggled in his first start for the Cincinnati Reds, but that shouldn't be cause for concern over the rest of the season.
The Reds haven't squandered their rebuilt trust just yet with their Nick Senzel shenanigans.
