When Adam Duvall was traded at the deadline, and with Jesse Winker and Scott Schebler went on the DL with shoulder injuries, many fans thought the move would be an opportunity for Phillip Ervin to show the Reds if he can be a piece of the puzzle in the coming years. But Ervin has barely […]

Another year, another sub-optimal season for Billy Hamilton at the plate. Hamilton, who owns the most plate appearances of all the Reds outfielders, is having the fourth worst offensive season among qualified players with a wRC+ of 64. His sub .300 OBP has seemingly put an end to his days as a leadoff hitter. He’s […]
