The trade deadline is always an exciting time for baseball fans, as contending teams look to add the final pieces for a pennant push and non-contending clubs attempt to shape their rosters for the future. For the better part of the last decade and a half, the Reds have fallen into the latter category, and […]

Lots of interesting decisions are going to be made today with respect to the composition of Cincinnati’s 40-man roster: The deadline to protect players on the 40-man roster is Friday. Those eligible for the Rule 5 Draft include anyone not on the 40-man roster who was signed as an 18-year-old in 2012, or at 19 […]

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 […]

So long, John Lamb. We barely knew you. I confirmed reports that #reds traded LHP John Lamb to Rays for cash considerations. @JonHeyman reported 1st. — Mark Sheldon (@m_sheldon) November 2, 2016 The Cincinnati Reds have traded Lamb to the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for a player named Cash Considerations. I can’t find any […]

The Cincinnati Reds made some roster moves today: #Reds transactions for Thursday. 40-man roster is now full, plus Alfredo Simon on the 60-day DL. — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) October 27, 2016 So John Lamb has been designated for assignment. Lamb is out of options, but with the lefty having undergone recent back surgery, I […]

One of the most important decisions facing the Cincinnati Reds front office is whether to use Michael Lorenzen in the starting rotation or assign him to the bullpen. Issue: Lorenzen pitched for the Reds as a starter in 2015 and as a reliever in 2016. It is beyond debate Lorenzen was more effective in 2016. Behold […]

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 […]

The Reds pitching staff has had a tough time this season. They currently sport the fourth worst ERA (4.89) and are dead last in both xFIP (4.79) and pitcher WAR (-0.9). They also just set a Major League record for home runs allowed and we have twelve games left (raise the banner!). We’ve seen some improvement […]

How about a quick snapshot of what the Reds have been doing since the All-Star break, while we’re waiting for an update on Homer Bailey’s arm? The Reds have played 40 games in the second half of the season, which represents about 1/4 of the full year. Their record in those games: 23-17. Over the […]

On Sunday July 10, Miami reliever Dustin McGowan retired Ramon Cabrera on a routine groundout, closing out a ho-hum 7-3 win and a series sweep for the Marlins. The Reds record stood at 32-57, a dismal 25 games below .500. The All-Star break provided a merciful interruption to their dreary slide into baseball’s cellar. Joey […]

We all know the Reds have big decisions to make regarding their 2017 rotation and beyond. With a plethora of talented, young, potential starting pitchers in the system, they certainly have options. Going into next season, we expect Homer Bailey and Anthony DeSclafani to start and if Raisel Iglesias can shoulder (haha) a starting pitching […]
