The Short Version: Reds lose. Again. But at least Brandon Dixon hit his first MLB homer. That was fun for him, one would imagine. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (25-45) 2 7 0 Pittsburgh Pirates (35-35) 6 10 1 W: Nova (4-5) L: Castillo (4-8) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score The Good –Jesse […]

As much as I want to write more about the Reds rebuild, or how the team will be good with one or two more prospects, or how maybe we just need (another) management change, I really don’t want to write about that. I can’t take it right now. Writing about the Reds at this point […]

The Kansas City Royals present a dystopic Ghost of Baseball Future for the Reds. Arguably, the Reds new front office used the 2014-2015 Royals as a template for the early phase of the team’s rebuild, assembling a roster around speed and contact hitting. With tonight’s win, the Reds staved off being tied with the Royals […]

The Short Version: A huge day by Billy Hamilton and solid work by the Reds pitching staff leads the Reds to their first victory over the Cardinals in ten games this season. Final R H E St. Louis Cardinals (35-28) 3 11 0 Cincinnati Reds (23-43) 6 5 1 W: DeSclafani (1-1) L: Martinez (3-3) […]

Will the losing streak end today? The Reds have dropped nine in a row to the St. Louis Cardinals this season, and 13 consecutive including last season. One good sign, at least from the perspective of this correspondent: This is the third consecutive day that both Scott Schebler and Jesse Winker are starting in the […]

The Reds meet the Rockies tonight in game 2 of the current 3 game series at GABP. If the Reds harbor hopes of recording a series win, they must win this one to keep those hopes alive after they wasted a decent return effort by Anthony DeSclafani and 17 hits by their offense in Tuesday’s […]

At first I was afraid, I was petrified. Anthony DeSclafani was making his first start in a Reds uniform since September, 2016. And I’d heard all the pessimism on the radio. It had been so long since AD had pitched. There was the oblique injury. The elbow injury. The oblique again. The Reds have seemed so […]

Tonight the Reds (21-39; 5th place NL Central) open a brief 6 game homestand with the first of three versus the Rockies (30-29; 2nd place NL West). Both teams sport 4-6 records over their last 10 games. However, the Rockies took 2 of 3 games from the Reds at Coors Field on the Reds recent […]

Late last season, the Reds starting pitching situation looked promising. They had an abundance of young, talented pitchers ready to resuscitate a rotation that was on life support from a couple years of either pitchers past their prime (Bronson Arroyo) or castoffs from other organizations (Asher Wojciechowski, Lisalverto Bonilla, Tim Adleman, etc.). The new-found health […]

The Short Version: Despite homers from Scooter Gennett and Eugenio Suarez — and a triple from Joey Votto — the Reds drop two out of three to San Diego and limp home after losing three consecutive series on the road. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (21-39) 3 12 0 San Diego Padres (27-34) 6 […]
