The title of this post is deliberately misleading. You’re all thinking of the cartoon and expecting a post about how oblivious the Reds are being. (Some clueless editor even added it as the featured image on the home page. Good work, Chad.) Nope. Not today. There’s a lot of hand-wringing around the internets, which is […]

This week’s respondents are Matt Habel, Steve Mancuso, Jim Walker, Tom Mitsoff, and Chad Dotson. Our Daily Reds Obsession: Who is the best defensive player you’ve ever seen in a Reds uniform? Matt: Billy Hamilton is definitely an easy answer because I have never seen anyone consistently make the plays that he does, let alone […]

Everyone knows it. Me, Chad, The Nation, everybody. The Reds need to obtain a veteran starting pitcher who can reliably show up on the mound every fifth day, give them (dare I say?) 180 innings of work and anchor the pitching staff. Given that the Reds are a small market team, getting one through free […]

Yesterday, we took a look at the 2017 Reds and where they stood among others at their position around the major league. What we discovered was that the Reds really need major upgrades to the pitching staff if they expect to compete in 2017. As I was putting together that piece, I thought it might […]

We asked Ron to elaborate on a comment he made a couple days ago that we considered very thought-provoking. And he did!

A collection of miscellanea, both Reds-related and otherwise… Over at Cincinnati Magazine, you can find the first installment of my Cincinnati Reds Player Power Rankings. It’s just like the traditional MLB team power rankings that you see everywhere, except that I’m ranking every Red player, from 32 all the way to number one. You’ll be […]

Like baseball itself, Spring Training has changed and evolved over the years. Logistically, it sure has for Cincinnati. The Reds left Florida for Arizona in 2010, a move that probably still irks some in the Nation. Apparently, it came down to Sarasota and Goodyear and Reds Owner Bob Castellini didn’t want to pull the trigger. […]

This is the third installment in the enormously popular Top Ten series, wherein we name the top ten players at each position in Reds franchise history. Previous: Redleg Top Ten: The Best Catchers in Reds History Redleg Top Ten: The Best First Basemen in Reds History Today, we take a look at the all-time best […]

You know, the kids these days love the youtubes. It’s not bad for the old guys, either, largely because there’s a treasure trove of old baseball games. Not just the classic games (like Game 4 of the 1976 World Series), but also some gems like the one below. It’s an early June NBC Game of […]

He was the pitching coach for the Nasty Boys. For Mario Soto and Jose Rijo. For Tom Browning and Danny Jackson. And he even coached The All-American Boy. Stan Williams has fond memories of Cincinnati as both a player and a coach for several major league teams. His major league career spanned14 seasons with six […]

The high-scoring Cincinnati Reds (52-71) are looking to win back-to-back games after posting their first win in over a week last night. Tonight, it is the NL West’s first place Los Angeles Dodgers (67-56) in town for a three game series. These two teams just hooked up ten days ago with the Dodgers taking three […]

Which four players have had the biggest impact on your franchise’s history? That’s the question MLB is asking fans to answer. Each team has a ballot that has been narrowed by a panel in conjunction with the thirty franchises down to eight players, with a slot for write-in choices. Fans can place their votes between […]
