The post-Price era begins today. What should’ve been a routine off-day in the middle of April turned into quite the eventful ordeal yesterday, as the Reds (3-15) fired manager Bryan Price and pitching coach Mack Jenkins after an abysmal start to the season. Today will mark the first game with former bench coach Jim Riggleman […]

The rain came down in buckets as we made the drive to Cincinnati on Sunday morning, but I still held out hope that we’d be able to see the Reds play one final time before we flew home. After witnessing Thursday’s slaughter and Friday’s anemic offensive showing (we took a side trip on Saturday), I […]

The Reds played poorly today and did not win. The pitched poorly and hit poorly. Some thoughts: Certainly, the result of the game is most heavily dependent on the players. However, when a team is struggling like this one, I have no patience for a manager not putting his best lineup on the field. Alex […]

An axiom cited by managers, coaches, players and executives in all sports is that you are never as bad as you look when you are on a losing streak, and never quite as good as you think you are when on a hot streak. Keep that in mind as the Reds continue to search for […]

Two years ago, Amir Garrett was the Reds’ minor league pitcher of the year. His prospect stock hit an all-time high, and he was one of the organization’s most promising arms among a sea of talent. Flash forward to today and the 6-foot-5 left-hander has arguably never looked better on the mound. Yet, he’s not in […]

Yesterday, I planned to run a poll to gauge how ready the fan base was to stop waiting and have the Reds put their foot on the collective gas. Well, I ran that poll and posting it here is pointless. Essentially the fan base wants the 25 best players on the roster either NOW or […]

After 4.0 innings of stellar relief work, Kevin Quackenbush put a fastball on a tee for Nick Williams to break the 5-5 deadlock. I truly cannot be that upset because Reds win this evening would’ve been stealing a victory from the jaws of defeat. No truly, the Reds did not deserve to win today. But […]

Redleg Nation‘s Jason Linden was at Slugger Field in Louisville for an eventful day with the Reds’ Triple-A affiliate. Nick Senzel met with the assembled media, and you can view the entire press conference below, including a good question from Jason. Watch as @Reds top prospect @LilSenzii discusses his expectations heading in to the season […]

Sometimes, when the pitching is outstanding, a single run holds up. That’s what happened this afternoon at the Great American Ball Park as our Cincinnati Reds busted into the win column with a victory over the stupid Chicago Cubs. The Reds go for a series sweep tomorrow. Chicago Cubs 0 • Cincinnati Reds 1 || Box Score || Win % || Exit Velocities […]

Baseball fans tend to forget just how hard this game is at the highest level. We expect prospects that succeed in the minors to transition to the Major Leagues seamlessly. That doesn’t happen often. A pitcher’s development is rarely linear. He may have several peaks and valleys in a short period of time or struggle […]

Yes, I appreciate the irony of an optimistic post about the Reds built around a metaphor of brightening skies while the Opening Day game is rained out. But let’s persist and use the overcast and now unoccupied moment to assess where the Reds stand in relation to being good. Reconstruction of the team progressed too […]
