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 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 […]

Well, now that Bryan Price is gone, the Reds are sure to make the postseason! Right? They only have to win…wait, 3-15?!? This man managed the team to 3-15?! Is it even possible to make the playoffs at this point? So the short answer is: Yes and no. Before diving into the various semantics of […]

Jason Linden joined me this week to discuss the firing of Reds manager Bryan Price, and what it means for the current version of the ol’ Redlegs. We also did a deep dive into our expectations for the rest of the 2018 season, and we even passed a little judgment on the current state of […]

The official Reds Twitter account @Reds has followed on the announcement of Bryan Price’s replacement as Reds manager with a series of Tweets featuring quotes from GM Dick Williams and interim manager Jim Riggleman. The theme of the day is that this is a time for urgency; and, the team should must not be comfortable […]

In a move that was becoming more inevitable with every loss that piled up — and currently there are 15 of those losses in Cincinnati’s first 18 games, and ten of the last eleven — the Reds announced today that manager Bryan Price has been fired, as well as pitching coach Mack Jenkins: The Reds […]

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 […]

This week’s respondents are Jason Linden, Bill Lack, Chris Garber, Steve Mancuso, and me (I’m Chad Dotson). Our Weekly Reds Obsession: How hot is Bryan Price’s seat? Jason: I have no idea how hot his seat is. I really don’t think he’ll be managing the Reds next year, but if he isn’t let go in […]

The formula for winning is straightforward. First, assemble a group of talented players. That’s the most important variable in the equation. Second, those players need to perform well. To do that, they need to stay healthy. Those are the main factors in success. Roster is reality. Major league managers have little impact on wins and […]

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 […]

So how bad is it? It snowed on April 9. In the first week of the 2018 season, the Reds lost as many starting players (2) as they had wins. Manager Bryan Price was still making some head-scratching decisions. Some were saying the season is over after just 8 games. It hasn’t gotten better, as […]

The nightmare continues for the Reds. The Cincinnati baseball team is now 2-11, continuing their worst start since 1955. Tyler Mahle started strong for the Reds, but got beat around in the 6th inning and they were quickly down 5-0. The Reds battled back and cut it to 5-3. They got the tying run to […]
