Here’s a game thread to discuss tonight’s MLB All-Star Game…or use it as an open thread to discuss whatever you want. As long as you mention Cincinnati’s 2018 All-Stars, Joey Votto, Scooter Gennett, and Eugenio Suarez. Welcome to DC!! #AllStarGame ⭐️⭐️ pic.twitter.com/AMJeQeKJ9c — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) July 16, 2018 What is love? pic.twitter.com/EZFoUFW6O7 — Chad […]

The 1982 baseball season was one of the worst ever for the Cincinnati Reds. They lost 102 games just six years after winning consecutive World Championships. And thanks to the incredible resurgence of the current Reds, a hundred losses isn’t gonna happen in 2018. Far from it. They’re going in the right direction. But you […]

After a slow start that lingered through the month of May, the 2018 Reds offense has shifted into high gear. It has produced the third most runs in the National League. In June and July, our Reds have outscored the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Brewers, even Cleveland. In fact, they’ve put more runs on […]

Here’s my latest column for Cincinnati Magazine: As I predicted a few weeks ago, three Cincinnati Reds have earned trips to this year’s All-Star Game. Joey Votto is going for the sixth time, while Scooter Gennett and Eugenio Suarez will make their first appearances on a National League roster at this year’s Midsummer Classic. Many […]

The Short Version: Jose Peraza breaks an all-time franchise record, but the Reds fall short in the final game of the first game. Despite the loss, the Reds will go into the All-Star break feeling pretty good about taking two of three in both St. Louis and Cleveland. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (43-53) […]

The Short Version: The Reds beat up on the St. Louis Cardinals, and that’s always a fun way to spend your Friday evening. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (42-52) 9 14 0 St. Louis Cardinals (47-45) 1 4 0 W: Harvey (5-5) L: Martinez (6-5) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score The Good –Another […]

The Reds (41-52) will try to turn around their fortunes this season against the St. Louis Cardinals (47-44) with a weekend series at Busch Stadium. First pitch for tonight’s game is 8:15 ET. The Reds last faced the Cardinals at GABP one month ago and snapped a 13-game losing streak to St. Louis dating back […]

In Little League, no one wanted to play second base. Second sackers were too small to play first, too weak to make the throw from second or third, and too slow to cover the outfield. Playing second base was insulting. It was the coach calling you a runt and good-for-nothing small person in front of […]

In today’s Contracts for the New Core post, we’re going to shake things up a bit by talking about a player not currently in the Red’s organization. After all, most teams who win the World Series do so after making some pretty big moves. While I don’t think it’d be impossible to build a championship […]

On the heels of their incredible ninth inning comeback last night, the Reds hope to get out the brooms tonight and sweep the Indians into Lake Erie in the series final. Same Bat Time; Same Bat Channel (7:10pm Eastern Fox Sports Ohio). Starting Pitchers Tonight will feature another battle of right handers, Tyler Mahle for the Reds […]

This column feels much more appropriate that it did at the end of April, something for which I could not be more grateful. The Reds, miraculously, look like a team that can compete. If not for the first month of the season, we would all be VERY excited right now. As it is, we’re all […]

The Short Version: Reds offense dominated by an All-Star pitcher for eight innings, but they scored seven runs in the top of the ninth — capped by a bases-clearing double from Joey Votto to grab the lead — and the Reds snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (41-51) […]
