Tonight the Reds continue to pursue an elusive first win following the All Star break in game 2 of the current series versus the DBacks at GABP.  In the five games played after the break, the Reds have allowed 46 runs while scoring 14. While neither of those numbers are good, the 46 runs allowed […]

During a two-week stretch last April the Reds and Cubs played seven times. If you bracket off a 13-5 Cincinnati win, the Cubs slaughtered the Reds 55-7. Not a typo. Not the Ohio State-Rutgers football score. The Reds began those two weeks 5-1 and finished 9-10. We know the misery that followed. The Cubs went […]

There are only two things guaranteed to make me cry: 1) Listening to the Hamilton soundtrack all the way through; and 2) watching clips of servicemen and women surprising their loved ones for the holidays. I don’t know what that list says about me or my emotions but I also don’t care because yesterday both of […]

Dick Williams–the Reds general manager or the guy in charge of the rebuild or the guy who took over for Walt Jocketty or the guy who literally pilots the Reds off-the-field decisions and thus holds a fair amount of importance in this baseball world we choose to inhabit–mentioned the other day that the Reds will be […]

The drip-drip-drip of transactional news continued today. Immediately after the end of the World Series — the Series finished earlier this morning; did you watch it? — teams can begin announcing transactions and eligible players declare for free agency. The Cincinnati Reds had two such players, pitchers Alfredo Simon and Ross Ohlendorf. As expected: Ross […]

As is now customary, the Reds (the ones under contract at least) hosted their third consecutive Halloween party Sunday night while Game 5 of the World Series played in the background. The tradition was a favorite of Reds from years past, with each iteration from 1996 to 2009 gradually getting wilder and wilder. Austin Kearns […]

Yes, we have known for a long time that Cincinnati’s pitching has been brutal this year. Yes, this staff broke the record for most home runs allowed in a single season. Yes, they’ve been almost impossible to watch at times. But do we really need to keep being reminded? Last week, FiveThirtyEight declared that the […]

This piece was submitted by Chris Esberger, known in our comments as Chuck Schick, and we’re happy to run it here at Redleg Nation. As we enter the dog days of the Reds 15th losing campaign over the past 20 seasons, I thought I would offer my special mix of random, mostly worthless facts and […]

May 18, 2016: Raisel Iglesias, Anthony DeSclafani, and Homer Bailey are all on the disabled list; Jumbo Diaz and Keyvius Sampson are recalled to the big league club; J.J. Hoover is in Louisville; Steve Delabar had walked four straight batters with two outs and the bases loaded the night before; and Fox Sports’ Dieter Kurtenbach calls the Reds […]

The second half of the 2016 season began yesterday, and it couldn’t have gotten here quickly enough, right? I’m sure you’re all excited to see how the last 73 games of the season play out for the ol’ Redlegs. The reason I say that the second half couldn’t get here quickly enough is that it […]
