The home team hopes to avoid three straight losses tonight in the middle game of a three-game weekend series against the Pirates.

After a slow start that lingered through the month of May, the 2018 Reds offense has shifted into high gear. It has produced the third most runs in the National League.

Despite the recent series against the Detroit Tigers in which he went 4-for-7 with a home run and three RBI, left fielder Adam Duvall has struggled mightily this season.

So how bad is it? It snowed on April 9. In the first week of the 2018 season, the Reds lost as many starting players (2) as they had wins. Manager Bryan Price was still making some head-scratching decisions. Some were saying the season is over after just 8 games. It hasn’t gotten better, as […]

This week’s respondents are Jason Linden, Bill Lack, Chris Garber, and Chad Dotson. Our Weekly Reds Obsession: What is your favorite Opening Day memory? Jason Linden: Last year was the first time I actually got to go to Opening Day and it was pretty great. The Reds lost, of course, and that was pretty predictive […]

Back in September, here in the digital pages of Redleg Nation, our Greg Gajus was emphatic that there was a glaring omission among inductees to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame.
