As the Reds’ worst start of the regular season since the Great Depression has unfolded, fans of the team are looking for answers, and in some cases, heads. Everyone from Bob Castellini to Dick Williams to Bryan Price has been roundly criticized here at Redleg Nation and elsewhere. One very important point for everyone to […]

Over at Fangraphs, Jeff Sullivan has organized a couple of polls, the results of which give us a glimpse into what Reds fans think of the people who are running the franchise. Today, Sullivan released the “Complete Team Ownership Ratings,” which is this: It should be very obvious that we don’t actually know that much […]

We first reported back in November that the Giants were interested in trading for Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton. A month later, the Reds were reportedly in “serious” trade talks with San Francisco for Hamilton’s services. If Hamilton is ultimately traded, it likely won’t be to San Francisco. Today, the Giants signed Austin Jackson to […]

This week’s respondents are Nick Kirby, Chris Garber, Clay Marshall, Ashley Davis, and Steve Mancuso. Our Daily Reds Obsession: What should be GM Dick Williams’ #1 priority this off-season? Nick: I think the Reds need to start competing soon, and not only because my patience with the rebuild is wearing out. The Reds need to […]

[This post was written by Warren Leeman, who comments under the name Shchi Cossack. Thanks, Warren!] In his recent piece, Matt Habel made the Old Cossack take a more obtuse look at Zack Cozart’s performance from 2017 and the Editors provided some thought-provoking questions regarding what the off season should entail for the Reds. We […]

[This post was written by loyal Nation member Ron Smith, a regular commenter under the name Old-school. We asked Ron to elaborate on a comment he made a couple days ago that we considered very thought-provoking. And he did! Thanks, Ron!] “We’ve just come to a point where we’re not going to lose anymore” –Bob […]

Like baseball itself, Spring Training has changed and evolved over the years. Logistically, it sure has for Cincinnati. The Reds left Florida for Arizona in 2010, a move that probably still irks some in the Nation. Apparently, it came down to Sarasota and Goodyear and Reds Owner Bob Castellini didn’t want to pull the trigger. […]

[This report was submitted by loyal (and longtime) Nation member and super Reds fan David Johnson, who comments here as “Preach,” and his son Elijah. They attended the Reds Caravan event in Columbus, OH. Lots of great information. Thanks, Preach!] “Sports science is the new Moneyball.” That was the second most interesting quote of the […]

There are only two things guaranteed to make me cry: 1) Listening to the Hamilton soundtrack all the way through; and 2) watching clips of servicemen and women surprising their loved ones for the holidays. I don’t know what that list says about me or my emotions but I also don’t care because yesterday both of […]

On Wednesday, the Reds announced a much-anticipated agreement with FOX Sports Ohio that extends the network’s visual broadcast rights for another 15 years. FSO has televised Reds games since 1998. Before we analyze what we know about the deal, let’s consider the context. Important, but not all-important Local broadcast revenue is important, but not all-important for […]

This submission is from reader Todd McDorman. With this post, I think we’ve probably run the gamut of opinions on the Hit King. The raucous capacity crowd greeted their favorite son with a hero’s welcome. The adulation continued for minutes. First, for the anniversary of the returning 1976 World Championship team. Then, for the retirement […]

I have a confession. The last time I was at Great American Ballpark the Reds got absolutely crushed by the Brewers and I still had a great time. The Reds are a bad team, we all get and understand that, but the one thing the Reds haven’t been bad at since the Castellini group took […]
