We’re at the half-way point of our fundraising week. Nothing like asking people for hard-earned money so they can read even more about their team’s historically awful start to the season. But that’s where we are! A word on the Jim Riggleman Era. When the Reds interim manager was interviewed before his first game leading […]

The Reds and Brewers meet today in a 1:40pm matinee at Miller Park to conclude the current 3 game series in Milwaukee.  17 games into the season, the Reds have yet to record consecutive victories; and, on the heels of Tuesday’s loss cannot do so today. However with a win today the Reds could secure […]

The rain came down in buckets as we made the drive to Cincinnati on Sunday morning, but I still held out hope that we’d be able to see the Reds play one final time before we flew home. After witnessing Thursday’s slaughter and Friday’s anemic offensive showing (we took a side trip on Saturday), I […]

The Short Version: Sal Romano’s strong start, along with solid work from the Reds bullpen, is paired with another miserable night from the Reds “offense.” Reds drop their ninth game in the last ten. The “rebuild” is stalled. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (3-14) 0 3 1 Milwaukee Brewers (9-9) 2 8 0 W: […]

That’s the way it’s supposed to work. Dominant pitching from Luis Castillo. Hitting up and down the lineup. Sure, the Brewers were without Ryan Braun (back), Christian Yelich (DL oblique), Eric Thames (groin), their starting catcher (DL calf) and backup catcher (DL shoulder). But even if all those guys were healthy, it wouldn’t have helped […]

Tonight the Reds (2-13, 5th place NL Central) open their second road trip of the season versus the Brewers (8-8, 4th place NL Central)  at Miller Park in Milwaukee. As if it weren’t disheartening enough that the Reds already find themselves 9 games off the pace being set by the division leading Pirates, they are […]

The Reds are in a bad place right now. I know it, you know it, and the front office knows it. The Reds’ starting pitching has been awful, their bullpen has been subpar, their defense has been anemic, and their offense has been atrocious. The Reds are last in all of baseball in run differential […]

The Short Version: Another effective outing by Homer Bailey, and the bullpen was even good. Another anemic performance by the Reds offense. Rinse. Repeat. Reds are 2-13 on the season, and everything is a disaster right now. Final R H E St. Louis Cardinals (9-7) 3 5 3 Cincinnati Reds (2-13) 2 5 0 W: […]

Two years ago, Amir Garrett was the Reds’ minor league pitcher of the year. His prospect stock hit an all-time high, and he was one of the organization’s most promising arms among a sea of talent. Flash forward to today and the 6-foot-5 left-hander has arguably never looked better on the mound. Yet, he’s not in […]

Yesterday, I planned to run a poll to gauge how ready the fan base was to stop waiting and have the Reds put their foot on the collective gas. Well, I ran that poll and posting it here is pointless. Essentially the fan base wants the 25 best players on the roster either NOW or […]

Four pitchers and an outfielder walk into a bar. The outfielder orders drinks for all of them, setting the table so to speak. The first pitcher knocks his drink over while the second spills his all over his front. The third, seeing his friends’ mishaps, takes his nice and slow, making sure to hit his […]
