So how bad is it? It snowed on April 9. In the first week of the 2018 season, the Reds lost as many starting players (2) as they had wins. Manager Bryan Price was still making some head-scratching decisions. Some were saying the season is over after just 8 games. It hasn’t gotten better, as […]

Recently we discussed the many ways in which Joey Votto is in fact perfect. I adopted him when he was an anxious rookie, then he earned his way into my tee shirt drawer (so to speak) by being awesome. I am a girl who’s hard to get except when I’m flinging myself at people (fictional characters, […]

Actually, MLB, Joey Votto is an international treasure. If you missed it, here’s the latest episode of Votto’s antics: Said it before, will say it again: Joey Votto is a national treasure. 😂 — MLB (@MLB) April 10, 2018 The City of Philly vs. Joey Votto is an unstoppable force vs. an immovable object […]

The Short Version: There really is no short version. It was a 12-inning game and in all the confusion of extra innings and bunts and pinch-hitting pitchers, I originally forgot to write the short version. So here it is: Reds lose. Final — 12 innings R H E Cincinnati Reds (2-9) 3 11 1 Philadelphia […]

Yesterday, I planned to run a poll to gauge how ready the fan base was to stop waiting and have the Reds put their foot on the collective gas. Well, I ran that poll and posting it here is pointless. Essentially the fan base wants the 25 best players on the roster either NOW or […]

The Cincinnati Reds (2-7) are off to their worst nine game start to the season since 1995. The Reds will look to get back into the win column tonight at Citizens Bank Park against the Philadelphia Phillies (4-5) at 7:05 PM. The Reds lost a heart breaker 6-5 last night after battling back from 3-1 […]

I’d start looking for tickets. Or at least broadcast availability. Thursday the Reds open up a four-game home stand against the St. Louis Cardinals. But the night to circle on your calendar is 24 hours later, Friday, April 13. Game time is 6:40 p.m. The forecast is for a high of 77º a low of […]

After the Reds locked up Eugenio Suarez for a better part of the next decade (a deal I kinda-sorta predicted in the first installation of this series, btw), I thought it’d be a while before the Reds extended another player. Devin Mesoraco and Tucker Barnhart both got their extensions, Joey Votto is here for the […]

Opening weekend did not go very well for the Reds as they were swept by the Washington Nationals. The Reds faced a very tall task as the Nat’s top three starters (Scherzer, Strasburg, Gonzalez) all finished in the top six of National League Cy Young Voting in 2017. The Reds offense, as you might expect […]

After 4.0 innings of stellar relief work, Kevin Quackenbush put a fastball on a tee for Nick Williams to break the 5-5 deadlock. I truly cannot be that upset because Reds win this evening would’ve been stealing a victory from the jaws of defeat. No truly, the Reds did not deserve to win today. But […]

Just a reminder: You need to hear all 90 seconds of Joey Votto. To the very last drop.
