Crap kids, I am sorry for the hastiness and tardiness of this recap. But here are some game-related baseball thoughts. Anyhow, here is the box score and the win probability. I am extremely and pleasantly surprised at how well Matt Harvey has pitched since the Reds got him and I look forward to him being […]

The Short Version: Cincinnati collects just three singles, and Tyler Mahle surrenders three long-balls as the Reds drop the final game of the series to the stupid Cubs. Final R H E Chicago Cubs (25-19) 6 10 0 Cincinnati Reds (16-32) 1 3 1 W: Darvish (1-3) L: Mahle (3-6) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box […]

The Short Version: The Reds lost. But they’ve split the season series with the Chicago Cubs so far. That’s something, right? Final R H E Chicago Cubs (23-18) 8 15 0 Cincinnati Reds (15-30) 1 2 1 W: Lester (4-1) L: Bailey (1-6) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score The Good –Nope. The Bad –Everything. […]

Don’t look now (or maybe, yes, do look) the Cincinnati Reds went 5-2 on the dreaded West coast road trip. That’s good for any team, but great for one that limped out of April with a 7-22 record. The good guys have won 7 of the last 9.  The team has an off day on […]

The Short Version: The Reds ride Luis Castillo’s right arm and home runs from Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto to their sixth straight victory. It’s a four-game sweep of the Dodgers in Los Angeles! The Reds continue to be undefeated in the Matt Harvey Era. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (14-27) 5 9 2 […]

The Cincinnati Reds have now won five consecutive games. The Reds fell behind early tonight, but Scott Schebler delivered a huge three run home run against his former team to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 lead. Every Reds starting position player collected a hit tonight. Homer Bailey wasn’t great, but he battled through […]

The Cincinnati Reds have now won four consecutive baseball games. They have won back to back games in LA against the Dodgers for the first time since 2011. The Matt Harvey era is officially underway for the Reds, and it is off to a roaring start. Harvey pitched four shutout innings on a limited pitch […]

Adam Duvall came off the bench and drove a 2-1 fastball into the left field bleachers for a game-winning homer leading off the bottom of the 10th. It was the second win in a row for the Redlegs and their 10th of the season. The victory also gave them a series win over the New […]

The Short Version: Hours after trading Devin Mesoraco for Matt Harvey, the Reds win their ninth game of the season. The trade is clearly a complete success. Final R H E New York Mets (18-16) 2 6 1 Cincinnati Reds (9-27) 7 12 0 W: Castillo (2-4) L: Vargas (0-3) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box […]

The Short Version: After dropping a 7-6 decision to the Metropolitans, the Cincinnati Reds have now lost six of their last seven games, and they are 8-27 on the season. Eight and twenty-seven. Final R H E New York Mets (18-15) 7 13 0 Cincinnati Reds (8-27) 6 8 0 W: Gsellman (4-0) L: Bailey […]
