This week, the Cincinnati Reds will embark on its annual caravan across four states of “Reds country.” As players, coaches, executives and fans gear up for the last large event before baseball begins a new season, let’s go back to the last event of the offseason and relive some of the moments I witnessed at […]

This week’s respondents are Chad Dotson, Matt Habel, Steve Mancuso, Clay Marshall and Tom Mitsoff. Our Daily Reds Obsession: Which of the Reds broadcasters do you like the most?  Chad: Marty Brennaman. Now that Vin Scully is retired, there isn’t a radio play-by-play broadcaster in all of baseball — and I’ve heard them all — who […]

For the second week in a row, your regularly scheduled evergreen-style Baseball is Life has been bumped by breaking news. Last week was The Game That Would Not End. This week:  Rally Bird. The Reds were minding their usual business on Sunday afternoon, losing steadily to the Rockies, when a mourning dove arrived in the […]

Every spring, even the most cynical fans allow for fleeting moments of optimism. After all, projections are based on past performance, and there’s always the possibility of multiple players having breakout seasons and carrying their teams to unexpected postseason glory. It happens nearly every year – prior to last season, for example, Baseball Prospectus guesstimated […]

I’m leaving today for Goodyear, flying from Cincinnati to Phoenix via Minneapolis. It’ll be my first time back in Arizona for spring training since 2010, the Reds maiden year in the Cactus League. 2010 turned out to be a pretty good season for the Reds. That January, the club had signed a lanky Cuban pitcher who […]

[This report was submitted by loyal Nation member and super Reds fan John Rohrig, who attends caravan events every year. Lots of great information. Thanks, John!] The 2017 edition of the Cincinnati Reds Caravan (East Tour) came to town Friday evening. On this year’s circuit was Reds broadcaster Jim Kelch — who emceed the event […]

It’s that time of year, Reds fans: The Reds announced Tuesday that their 2017 Caravan will be on the road Jan. 26-29 with stops in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia and Tennessee. Fans will have an opportunity to see and interact with current and former players, Minor League prospects, front office staff and broadcasters. Each […]

Good news, everybody! The pitching staff is fixed, and  so is the fact we never score any runs! In the tradition of yesterday’s great triumph of human athleticism, let’s celebrate by being even further in last place (30-53) and re-playing the NL Central leaders (52-29.) Two of three. THE MAN WITH THE SEVEN-DIP ICE CREAM CONE […]

The Reds entered play on Friday having allowed 37 runs over the last four games (9.3 runs per game). They got much better pitching tonight, but it wouldn’t be enough. Ben Revere hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 14th inning to secure the win for the Nationals. The Reds have now lost 13 […]

No late-inning dramatics. Led by a 3-run homer off the almost-traded Jay Bruce and a grand slam by Eugenio Suarez the Reds put the hapless Philadelphia Phillies out of their misery in the fourth inning. That means a series sweep. And that means the picture from when a fan shoved a broom in the hand of the […]

[This report was submitted by Jeff Lamb, from Gallatin TN. He comments as jeffintn on Redleg Nation. He and his son attended the Reds Caravan event at Cool Springs in Brentwood last night and filed this report. Thanks Jeff!] It was our first Reds Caravan so we didn’t know exactly what to expect. We weren’t […]
