The time between now and the July 31 trade deadline may prove as consequential as any two weeks of the Reds multi-year rebuilding process. The team is close to being a contender. That seemed unimaginable in April. But we Reds fans now sense in our bones the wait is months, not years, for a team in […]

Well how about that. After two tough losses, the Reds fought back to win the final two games of the series, splitting the four games against the Brewers.
