The Reds have played 59 consecutive and 105 total games with a rookie starting pitcher this season. Here’s the complete roll call: Anthony DeSclafani (30), Michael Lorenzen (21), Raisel Iglesias (16), Keyvius Sampson (11), John Lamb (9), David Holmberg (6), Josh Smith (6), Brandon Finnegan (3) and Jon Moscot (3). While an organizational transition to […]

We know Brandon Finnegan wants to be a starter. We know the Reds harbor the same feelings. But can prudence and patience prevail over rushed, unsound logic in the Reds’ latest reliever-to-starter experiment? To Bryan Price’s credit, everything we’ve heard points to him pining for Aroldis Chapman to start during his days as Dusty Baker’s […]

The minor league season is quickly drawing to a close.  This week we’ll take a look at how each team is faring in their division races and how some of the players are doing for each of the teams this season. AAA Louisville Bats The Bats currently stand at 63-75 on the season and in […]

The Cincinnati Reds (53-76) finish their six game road trip in Chicago with a three game series against the 74-55 Cubs. The Cubs boast the third best record in the National League and the 4th best record in all the majors but are still just 3rd in the NL Central division. They are sitting 9.5 […]

The Cincinnati Reds (52-72) find themselves back at 20 games under .500 after the series opening loss to the Dodgers (68-56) last night.

Another day, another loss for the Cincinnati Reds. You can mark that down as seven straight losses. Even the cool “Los Rojos” jerseys for Tony Perez weekend couldn’t bring the Reds any good luck. David Holmberg pitched poorly again for the Reds. He gave up a home run to the second batter of the game, A.J. Pollack, […]

During the Reds (51-68) six game losing streak, they have lost three games by one run, two by two runs, and one was a five run blow out. That is to say, this current stretch of futility hasn’t been brought about by atrocious play, rather small miscues that build into mounting losses. That being said, […]

Reds’ starter David Holmberg simply didn’t have it on Saturday night. The 24 year old lefty was pasted for seven earned runs in two-plus innings pitched. He walked four batters without any strikeouts at all. But it was the three home runs he allowed that guaranteed a short night for him and a long night […]

The Cincinnati Reds (51-63) will look to rebound from a 5-3 loss last night, as the Reds once again face the Los Angels Dodgers (65-51) tonight at 9:10 PM. John Lamb showed promise in his MLB debut last night, as he struck out seven batters in six innings. However, one mistake to Adrian Gonzalez was […]

The Reds’ 2015 campaign can be broken down into four separate segments: Segment 1: The 4-0 start — remember Todd Frazier’s Opening Day thunderbolt? — and Bryan Price’s blow-up. Segment 2: Season-ending injuries to Devin Mesoraco and Homer Bailey as well as a nine-game losing streak in May curtailed any chance the Reds possessed at playoff contention. Segment […]
