The Short Version: One day after collecting 20 hits and 15 runs, the Reds return to form with a one run outing, and the Twins snapped an eight-game losing streak. The Cincinnati Reds: Good For What Ails Ya’. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (6-21) 1 6 2 Minnesota Twins (9-13) 3 8 0 W: […]

The Short Version: Reds offense breaks out the bats in the club’s first-ever visit to Target Field in Minnesota, and the good guys come away with a comeback victory despite a horrific outing from starting pitcher Luis Castillo. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (6-20) 15 20 1 Minnesota Twins (8-13) 9 14 1 W: […]

Imagine you’re a Major League Baseball team with a franchise first baseman locked up long term but little to nothing else. You look to the farm and to trades and to the draft to rebuild, hoping to field a competitive team after about a three-year tank. No, you aren’t the Cincinnati Reds, you’re the Atlanta […]

Let me tell you something, when I came up with the idea of this column, I really did not think the Reds were about to have their worst start in history. I expected some ups and downs, of course. But this mess came out of nowhere. This was the week when I had planned to […]

This week’s respondents are Matt Wilkes, Matt Habel, Jordan Barhorst, Jackson Thurnquist, and Jeff Gangloff. Our Weekly Reds Obsession: Has the slow start to the season caused you to change your opinion of the 2018 Reds, and what will the team’s final record be? Matt Wilkes: My opinion hasn’t changed much. The team is better […]

Well, Bryan Price or not, the Reds (3-16) are still who we thought they were. Believe it or not, Jim Riggleman couldn’t fix everything in one game. Brandon Finnegan was erratic and the offense continued to look hapless in a 4-2 defeat against the Cardinals (11-8) on Friday night. The Reds have now scored two […]

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 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: […]

Fresh off a much needed win last night, the Reds face the Brewers tonight in the second of the current 3 game series at Miller Park in Milwaukee. Game time will once again be 7:40pm EDT.  Hopefully your personal sports world is a much happier place thanks to the Reds ending up on the good […]

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 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: […]
