Tonight the Reds will be looking to make it two in a row over the Pirates in the middle game of their current series at GABP. A Reds win tonight would secure a winning series for the Reds and set the stage for them to go for the sweep and a winning homestand on Thursday […]

So, last night on Twitter, I made the egregious suggestion that Scooter Gennett was likely not a player to count on over the long term. Correspondingly, my mentions caught fire like dry brush at a fireworks show. Today, we’re gonna do something. We’re gonna look at every player currently playing a prominent role on the […]

This week’s respondents are Steve Mancuso, Jackson Thurnquist, and yours truly. Our Weekly Reds Obsession: If Anthony DeSclafani can actually return to the Reds in late May, whose spot in the current rotation — presuming all are healthy — will Disco take?

Doug Gray joined me for an optimistic and ebullient episode of Redleg Nation Radio, as we reflected on the fact that the Reds actually won 7 out of 9 games, including a beautiful West Coast road trip. Seriously, this is a thing that actually happened. We also discussed what the Reds should do with Homer […]

The Cincinnati Reds (15-29) will look to continue their 2018 dominance of the Chicago Cubs (22-18) this weekend in Great American Ball Park.

The two teams will meet for four games in three days, […]

I’ll begin with a confession: Twice in the past 27 years, I actually considered becoming a Dodgers fan. The first time was as a 13-year-old in November of 1991, when Eric Davis was traded. As I touched on this in my introductory Redleg Nation column last year, I’ll let cut and paste do their jobs: […]

The Cincinnati Reds have now won five consecutive games. The Reds fell behind early tonight, but Scott Schebler delivered a huge three run home run against his former team to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 lead. Every Reds starting position player collected a hit tonight. Homer Bailey wasn’t great, but he battled through […]

So, it’s been a rough year. Nothing like the year I thought we’d see. At least, not so far. Though, fortunately, the Reds finally have an actual winning streak going right now. But the issues present with this team are being made painfully clear. Finnegan has been sent down to make room for Matt Harvey […]
