Let’s take a breather from the current product and check in with some notable 2014 Reds that aren’t with the organization anymore, including prospects that were seemingly part of the club’s future. Players listed in alphabetical order. Jonathan Broxton, RP, Milwaukee Brewers Transaction: Traded to the Brewers on August 31 for Kevin Shackelford and Barrett […]

The Major League Baseball season is not even a month old, but even early trends are worth keeping an eye on. For example, four teams — the Red Sox, Dodgers, Angels and Blue Jays — that make the most sense as partners with the Reds in a potential Johnny Cueto trade are experiencing rotation issues. […]

The Reds are scuffling right now, and they are 1-5 since their 4-0 start. It seems that no matter what the Reds do when they play the Cardinals, no breaks seem to go their way. Let’s hope that changes this afternoon, as the Reds play the second game of the series at 1:15 CST. STARTING […]

As I type this on Monday night at 9:30pm we have been handed the rosters for the Dayton Dragons, Daytona Tortugas and Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Only the Louisville Bats have yet to release their official opening day roster, though until the games begin on Thursday evening things could still be fluid. Even without the Triple-A […]

Wednesday at Goodyear Ballpark the Reds’ bullpen coughed up a late lead — sound familiar? — and the team dropped its second game in a row. Final R H E  Kansas City Royals (8-1) 5 10 0  Cincinnati Reds (4-5-1) 2 8 1 W: Y. Pino (1-0) L: S. LeCure (0-1) | Box Score | MLB.com Recap | AP Recap | Pitching: Paul Maholm started and […]

A cold front has swept through the heart of Redleg Nation—not only that of subzero wind chills turning Cincinnati and the surrounding landscape into the background scenery of Doctor Zhivago, but also the chilling effect the Marlon Byrd acquisition has had on the Reds’ fan base. Let’s bring up a topic that taps into the […]

I’m going to take a look at the Reds top level minor league depth at seasons end.  This week I’ll cover the starting pitchers.  I’ll move on to the relievers and then position players in subsequent weeks.  This will be more of a who is closest to helping in the majors type of ranking rather […]

The Reds were shutout for the 17th time in 2014 on Wednesday night.  Daniel Corinco got off to a strong start for the Reds, but was unable to get out of the 5th inning. Kyle Lohse dominated the Reds offense, pitching a complete game shutout in his final start of 2014. Final R H E […]

On June 28th, the Brewers were 51-32, and had the best record in the National League. The Brewers were four games better than anyone else in the NL (Giants were next at 47-35), and only 0.5 behind the Oakland A’s (strangely enough) for the best record in all of baseball. Since then, the Brewers are […]

The Cincinnati Reds (71-79) will travel to Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs (65-84) for the final time in 2014. The Cubs have already been officially been eliminated from the postseason, while the Reds elimination numbers are 1 in the NL Central, and 5 in the wild-card. The Cubs have certainly had a worse […]

Daniel Corcino filled in brilliantly in his first career MLB start, after Reds scheduled starter Mat Latos was scratched because of a bone bruise. Corcino allowed just two hits in six innings, but it wasn’t enough. The Brewers got a walk-off win off Jumbo Diaz, a big win for a struggling team still fighting for a playoff […]

Alfredo Simon gave up six earned runs, and lasted just four innings. The Reds bullpen allowed eight runs of their own, and the Reds had one of their most embarrassing losses in recent memory, 14-5 to the Mets. Tonight tied a season high in runs allowed (Reds lost 14-9 to Toronto on June 20th), and […]
