The Reds announced today that they have non-tendered three players: Ryan LaMarre (OF), Pedro Villarreal (SP/RP), and Ryan Mattheus (RP). This means that those players become free agents effective immediately. The deadline to non-tender players is tonight at 11:59 PM. Mark Sheldon reported that the Reds could chose to bring all three players back on minor […]

Major league teams had to finalize their 40-man rosters on Friday afternoon, which means they could start picking over unprotected players in other organizations. The Reds took quick advantage. As their first acquisition of the off-season, the club signed right-handed relief pitcher Blake Wood (30) to a major league contract yesterday. The terms of the […]

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 Cincinnati Reds (60-82) start their last multi-city road trip of the season with a three game series in San Francisco. The San Francisco Giants (75-68) are on the outside looking in at the 2015 playoff picture. With 19 games left in their schedule, the Giants find themselves sitting 7.5 games behind both the Dodgers […]

It’s not everyday that you see the first play of the day be a pickoff attempt. That is exactly what happened as the Reds and Cardinals resumed a suspended game from last night. J.J. Hoover, who threw five pitches last night and was on the mound when the game was suspended, stayed in the game […]

The rain came fast and furious in the 8th inning last night. The Reds and Cardinals were tied at two, so that means the game was suspended. The suspended game will be played at 12:30 PM, and the actual game that was supposed to be played at 1:10 will begin 40 minutes following the conclusion […]

Ryan Mattheus gave up a leadoff walk in the bottom of the tenth. A single, bunt, intentional walk and fly ball later, the Arizona Diamondbacks had won the game and the series. The good news is that Aroldis Chapman was warmed up and available to pitch the 11th inning if the Reds got the lead. […]

Ah, the summer of 1989 … Tim Burton’s Batman was released with Michael Keaton as superhero and Jack Nicholson as the Joker … Robin Williams starred in Dead Poets Society … An album by New Kids on the Block topped the charts … George Michael wrapped up his Faith tour … Dynasty, Moonlighting and Miami Vice finished their […]

For the first time since I don’t know when (2011), the Cincinnati Reds won the majority of a series of professional baseball games against the St. Louis Cardinals in front of The Best Fans in Baseball.™ They won back-to-back games in St. Louis for the first time in five years. That’s back-to-back shutouts, too, for […]

Let’s play two! The Cincinnati Reds (41-50) are hoping to bounce back from last night’s extra inning loss in the first game of a day-night doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs (50-42).

Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber hit two home runs for the Cubs, as they beat the Reds 5-4 in 13 innings on Tuesday evening. Schwarber grew up in Middletown, Ohio, and grew up rooting for the same Reds he beat up on tonight. The Reds got off to a quick start in the first inning. Brandon […]
