The competition surrounding Reds’ rotation is generating most of the hubbub at camp, but with Homer Bailey and John Lamb unfit for the start of the season, a safe assumption can be made that in some order, Anthony DeSclafani, Raisel Iglesias, Michael Lorenzen, Brandon Finnegan, and Jon Moscot will occupy the five starting spots to […]

With the Reds’ record being what it is, some of you are wishing for Bryan Price’s team to lose their way to a better draft pick. I understand the logic in rooting for losses now. And I often find myself tempted to pull for rock bottom with the hope it might be the catalyst for […]

The Chicago Cubs (74-56) look for revenge tonight against the Cincinnati Reds (54-76) in game two of this three game series.

But tonight, they were stymied by Justin Nicolino who was making his first major league start. Less than three weeks ago, the 23-year-old gave up 7 earned runs in 3 innings to […]

The Cincinnati Reds (16-17) are playing for a series victory and .500 record in the final game of this three game series against the Atlanta Braves (15-18). They are expecting sunny skies and a game time temperature of 64 degrees for the final 2015 regular season meeting between these two clubs. The Braves are sending […]

Atlanta isn’t a good baseball team. They have a couple nice players. Freddie Freeman can hit and Andrelton Simmons can pick it. But that’s about it. All things considered, the former team from Milwaukee might be as bad as the current team from Milwaukee. After tonight’s loss for the Reds, the two teams have identical […]
