We’re at the half-way point of our fundraising week. Nothing like asking people for hard-earned money so they can read even more about their team’s historically awful start to the season. But that’s where we are! A word on the Jim Riggleman Era. When the Reds interim manager was interviewed before his first game leading […]

I get that teams are pitching around Joey Votto. The guys batting behind him haven’t been much of a threat. But if you’re wondering why the Reds offense has been so bad, start with Votto’s lack of power. Out of 186 qualified batters in the major leagues, Votto’s isolated power (ISO) is .014, which is […]

Well, Bryan Price or not, the Reds (3-16) are still who we thought they were. Believe it or not, Jim Riggleman couldn’t fix everything in one game. Brandon Finnegan was erratic and the offense continued to look hapless in a 4-2 defeat against the Cardinals (11-8) on Friday night. The Reds have now scored two […]

The post-Price era begins today. What should’ve been a routine off-day in the middle of April turned into quite the eventful ordeal yesterday, as the Reds (3-15) fired manager Bryan Price and pitching coach Mack Jenkins after an abysmal start to the season. Today will mark the first game with former bench coach Jim Riggleman […]

The official Reds Twitter account @Reds has followed on the announcement of Bryan Price’s replacement as Reds manager with a series of Tweets featuring quotes from GM Dick Williams and interim manager Jim Riggleman. The theme of the day is that this is a time for urgency; and, the team should must not be comfortable […]

In a move that was becoming more inevitable with every loss that piled up — and currently there are 15 of those losses in Cincinnati’s first 18 games, and ten of the last eleven — the Reds announced today that manager Bryan Price has been fired, as well as pitching coach Mack Jenkins: The Reds […]

This week’s respondents are Jason Linden, Bill Lack, Chris Garber, Steve Mancuso, and me (I’m Chad Dotson). Our Weekly Reds Obsession: How hot is Bryan Price’s seat? Jason: I have no idea how hot his seat is. I really don’t think he’ll be managing the Reds next year, but if he isn’t let go in […]

Quantifying how hot any particular manager’s or front office executive’s or face of the franchise’s seat is at any given time is a foolhardy endeavor with no good answers. Unless you are the owner of the franchise. Then it’s not so much a hot seat as much as how you’re going to do payroll for […]

You are really going to want to read this outstanding piece by Zach Buchanan in the Enquirer. It’s about the off-season training work that Reds legend Barry Larkin does, in Orlando, with players around baseball, including Cincinnati prospects Shed Long and Jesse Winker. We’ve heard about the training sessions — dubbed B-Lark University by Mariners […]

[This post was written by Warren Leeman, who comments under the name Shchi Cossack. Thanks, Warren!] In his recent piece, Matt Habel made the Old Cossack take a more obtuse look at Zack Cozart’s performance from 2017 and the Editors provided some thought-provoking questions regarding what the off season should entail for the Reds. We […]

Welcome to Three Reds Questions (3RQ), a new feature at Redleg Nation. Each week, a group of our writers – and maybe an occasional special guest or select commenter – will answer three important questions concerning our Redlegs. This week, our panel of Reds obsessives includes Nick Carrington, Ashley Davis, Chad Dotson, Nick Kirby, Steve […]
