The winter 2015 three team trade of fan favorite and Home Run Derby star Todd Frazier to the Chicago White Sox brought back right fielder Scott Schebler, infielder Brandon Dixon, and the current Reds second baseman, Jose Peraza. After slow starts the past two seasons, Schebler’s power (he currently leads the team in home runs) […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Matt Habel. Thanks, Matt!] This post came about from a commenter who posed the question, “Does the Reds winning coincide with Billy getting on base?” It is certainly an intriguing question which anecdotally would seem to have a very obvious answer and has even been brought up […]

Over the years, the Reds have been pretty good at signing their most talented players to team-friendly deals early on in their careers and, for better or worse, locking up those players for an extended period of time. It’s a necessary step that the Reds and other small market teams need to take in order […]

When I played high school ball (a phrase that seems to engender me with some degree of credibility as a baseball writer but really means absolutely nothing), the whole team would be sent to the batting cages during a rain delay, presumably to make ourselves better or something equally ridiculous. Instead, we would all congregate in […]

I’m sorry, you don’t trade Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier, Aroldis Chapman and Brandon Phillips and then give us Scott Feldman. But that’s what happened Monday when Bryan Price announced Feldman would take the mound for the Reds on Opening Day. Major league baseball teams choose Opening Day starters in advance for […]

New York Yankees shortstop (and former Cincinnati Red) Didi Gregorius is out for 6-8 weeks with a shoulder strain.

Some time back, a St. Louis Cardinals blog — wait, hear me out on this one — asked if we’d like to participate in a roundtable discussion about the upcoming Reds season. A bunch of Reds blogs participated, and you can go here to see everyone’s answers. It’s worth your time, methinks. Anyway, I thought […]

There are several Reds-related items worth reading today, so I thought I’d collect them into one post here for your convenience. You can thank me later. First, Zach Buchanan has an update on Dilson Herrera’s shoulder: Second baseman Dilson Herrera and right-hander Nick Travieso are both working back from shoulder ailments, but there’s no hard […]

You know when you have a puppy and at first it’s really energetic almost to the point of impracticality? Like all it wants to do is run, destroy your personal belongings, eat, eat your personal belongings, and occasionally sleep. That’s what this rebuilding Reds team has felt like.
