The Reds pitching staff has been largely terrible in 2016. A whopping 31 pitchers (and Tyler Holt) took the mound for the club, allowing an MLB record 251 home runs (as of Tuesday night) and posting a collective 0.0 fWAR as a group, the third-worst mark in baseball history. While the overall numbers make it look […]

Take solace that there’s a good chance none of the pitchers who appeared will make next year’s Opening Day roster. Let’s hope so. Also, lackluster would be an apt word to describe the Reds offensive performance tonight. The Reds had won five in a row. Can’t win ’em all. They’re 30-26 since the All Star break. Better […]

The Reds have used 30 pitchers this season, and that number could very well reach 32 once recent call-ups Abel De Los Santos and Matt Magill appear in a game. Most of those pitchers won’t be around next year. Some are already off the roster. Others are competing for a spot on next year’s club. Keyvius Sampson […]

After Thursday night’s win over the Reds, the Pirates record stood 69-69. If they had proceeded to sweep the Reds, they would have been just a couple games out of the second NL Wild Card slot. With their next 11 games against the Phillies, Brewers and Reds, the Pirates would have had a decent shot […]

The Reds lost their 82nd game on Thursday night, which officially means 2016 will be a losing season for the Reds. It will be the Reds third consecutive losing season. The Reds have now lost five straight games, and are 4-13 over their last 17 games. What was once looking like a promising finish to […]

The Reds minor league teams wrap up regular season play this week.  Two of the teams, Pensacola and Billings will then be competing in their league playoffs.  The AZL Reds were eliminated from the Arizona League playoffs as they lost 8-1 to the AZL Mariners last week in the single first round playoff game. The […]

In the bottom of the 3rd inning, Billy Hamilton checked his swing and grabbed his left rib cage. After a protracted discussion involving the Reds trainer, Bryan Price, Zack Cozart and Joey Votto, Hamilton left the game. Later it was announced the Reds centerfielder had suffered a strained left oblique muscle. Oblique injuries can linger. […]

#reds recall from Cody Reed, Keyvius Sampson, Robert Stephenson, select from Louisville contract of Wandy Peralta, designated Kyle Waldrop — John Fay (@johnfayman) September 2, 2016 With rosters expanding as of yesterday, it appears that the Reds have called up four pitchers to the big league club: RHP Robert Stephenson, LHP Cody Reed, RHP Wandy […]

Despite today’s drubbing, the Cincinnati Reds are 16-11 since the All-Star game during which time they have outscored their opponents 135-103. Perhaps it’s because the game wasn’t interesting. Perhaps it’s because I turned the volume off the broadcast to flee Thom Brennaman’s commentary and the room was quiet. For some reason I fell asleep on […]
