Billy Hamilton had two hits in what could be his 659th and final game in a Cincinnati Reds uniform. Both Hamilton and Harvey were claimed on waivers, and the Reds have until tomorrow to make a trade to the mystery team or they will remain Reds through at least the end of the season. Anthony […]

My fajitas took a bit longer to prepare than expected. By the time I had finished my lunch and settled in for the Reds game exactly eight minutes after it had started, Tyler Mahle had thrown 15 pitches. One had left the yard. 1-0 Tigers. Welcome to Reds baseball, where it feels like the hope […]

It’s been almost two years since we’ve seen Johnny Cueto on the mound in a Reds uniform at Great American Ball Park. The date was July 19, 2015, a Sunday afternoon like today, and it felt like walking the Green Mile. Cueto only made it through four innings. That’s what happens when you pitch while […]

That means a series sweep. And that means the picture from when a fan shoved a broom in the hand of the […]
