The Reds will end 2014 the same way they did in 2013: against the Pittsburgh Pirates. This time around there will be no big do-or-die game. There will be no hope of the Reds still playing baseball next week. It has been a long, painful, frustrating, and mostly full of disappointment 2014 season for the […]

On June 28th, the Brewers were 51-32, and had the best record in the National League. The Brewers were four games better than anyone else in the NL (Giants were next at 47-35), and only 0.5 behind the Oakland A’s (strangely enough) for the best record in all of baseball. Since then, the Brewers are […]

[You may remember my friend John Barrett, a life-long Brewers fan. Full of optimism, John wrote back in March of his hope and expectations for Milwaukee’s season. Now that the Brew Crew almost certainly shares a dreary fate with the Reds, John touches base with us again, so to speak. Thanks, JQB. — spm] Put […]

The Cincinnati Reds (71-82) will travel to St. Louis this weekend and play the Cardinals (85-68) for the final time in 2014.

The Reds will however have a chance this weekend to play spoiler against their division rival, and […]

The Cincinnati Reds (71-79) will travel to Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs (65-84) for the final time in 2014. The Cubs have already been officially been eliminated from the postseason, while the Reds elimination numbers are 1 in the NL Central, and 5 in the wild-card. The Cubs have certainly had a worse […]

[This Special Edition series preview was co-authored by Nick Kirby and Steve Mancuso.] “We know the fans are booing us for a reason.” — Mark Reynolds, 9/8. The 2014 Milwaukee Brewers season has been one of epic rise and tragic fall – equal parts stunning. They grabbed first place by the throat on April 5 and […]

The St. Louis Cardinals (79-64) will travel to Cincinnati to face the Reds (67-76) for the final time in 2014.

For just the second time ever, the Reds will travel to Baltimore to play three game at Camden Yards. The two clubs have only played two previous regular season series. The Reds won two of three against the O’s at GABP back in 2006, and the Reds lost two of three against the O’s at […]

The Cincinnati Reds (63-68) will begin a three game series against the Chicago Cubs (58-72) on Tuesday night at Great American Ballpark. The Reds have dominated the Cubs of late.

The Reds play four games against Atlanta in GABP this weekend. Prior to The Second Collapse, this series was shaping up as a head-to-head battle for a Wild Card slot. Now it’s sort of head-to-ankle. Atlanta is a difficult team to figure out. After the All-Star break, they lost eight in a row including being […]

The Cincinnati Reds (61-63) face the St. Louis Cardinals (66-57) for the first time since the All-star Break. The Reds need to make up some ground in the standings, and I can think of no better team to do that against than the 2nd place Cardinals. The Cardinals won four of five last week, as […]
