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. In June and July, our Reds have outscored the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Brewers, even Cleveland. In fact, they’ve put more runs on […]

The Short Version: Reds jump out to an early lead thanks to Joey Votto and Scooter Gennett, but it is short-lived as the Rockies win going away. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (19-35) 2 9 0 Colorado Rockies (28-25) 8 14 0 W: Marquez (4-5) L: Harvey (1-3) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score […]

I know, the Reds losing is pretty painful. But they are now on pace for a 68 -94 record for the season. This would currently be good for 4th place in next year’s draft. There are 5 other teams within 4 games of the Reds however, so they’re going to need to step it up […]

Everyone take a deep breath. Despite trying their best to blow a 10-2 lead in Friday’s series opener, the Reds (49-67) managed to squeak out an 11-10 win over the Brewers (59-59) and are now riding a three-game winning streak. Don’t look now, but the Redlegs have won eight of their last 12 games since […]

Last week I lamented the lack of humorous material in the Reds’ season of late, yearning for the September call-ups so we could do all sorts of future projections. But then this Wednesday, lo and behold, the MLB goes and announces Players Weekend, complete with nicknames on jerseys. Ask and you shall receive I guess. […]

We’re at that point in the season where pretty much everything is a foregone conclusion, and I am left with nothing humorous to write about. I’ve written about soccer too many times to comment on Neymar to PSG, the trade deadline has passed so that’s out, and Scooter Gennett hasn’t done anything of interest in […]

Here’s a little Friday grab bag for your reading pleasure. Not Gonna Happen With Monday’s July 31 trade deadline looming, circumstances are conspiring against Dick Williams and the Reds front office. It looks increasingly unlikely they’ll be able to make a trade of any importance to further the agenda of rebuilding a winning team. Scott […]

Recently, I wrote about Tucker Barnhart and how he is an interesting asset for the Reds. The colleague he has split most of the catching duties with, Devin Mesoraco, remains a large unknown due to injuries and missed time. Much has been discussed about Mesoraco and his comeback, as well as Wesley Jenkins proposing trading […]

Thanks, Warren!] Paging Jesse Winker … Jesse Winker, please … OK, let’s get the disclaimers out of the way right […]

Your Cincinnati Reds are fresh off of taking the most exciting, and possibly the most talented, player in the 2017 amateur draft in Hunter Greene. It’s an exciting day to be a Reds fan, as all of us scramble to read all we can about the 17-year-old baseball phenom. There’s a lot to be read […]

The Cincinnati Reds (24-25) go north of the border for a three game series against the Toronto Blue Jays (23-27), starting tonight at 7:07 ET. These two teams have not played each other since 2014, and the Reds have not visited Toronto since 2009. The Blue Jays come into this series in last place in […]

The Yankees have a hair phobia. Not one of those “the drain is clogged with your roommate’s disgusting sheddings could you please clean up after yourself” hair phobias because I’m pretty sure everybody has that, but one of those “everyone on this team should resemble a Ken doll” hair phobias. A remnant of George Steinbrenner’s […]
