The Reds have struggled to put together a solid bench the last few years. This year, they’ve given 602 plate appearances to the combination of Skip Schumaker, Brennan Boesch, Kris Negron, and Jason Bourgeois. Their collective efforts have produced -2.9 WAR. While we don’t expect bench players to put up extraordinary numbers, we hope they […]

The Cincinnati Reds (57-79) may not finish with a winning season, but after last night’s win over Pittsburgh (81-55), the Reds are guaranteed to have a winning 2015 head-to-head record against the Pirates. The Reds have won 10 of the 14 games between these two clubs with five more left to play this season. The […]

[Tom Diesman is out of town this week. We asked Warren Leeman (known here and the far eastern territory of Russia as Shchi Cossack) to pinch hit. Thanks, Warren!] With the Big Club’s season over from a competitive perspective and the minor league season winding down, a look back through the 2015 minor league season […]

The first half of tonight’s game felt like an extension of last night’s flop. Then the bats picked up and the pitching stiffened. Somehow, this absurd roster of players pulled it together to beat the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Better yet, with the victory tonight, the Reds have won 10 of their last 18 games. […]

A second inning of Burke Badenhop proved to be a bridge too far. With Aroldis Chapman resting peacefully in Savelandia, the Cubs got back-to-back hits in the bottom of the 11th inning to plate the winning run. Reds 1, Cubs 2 | FanGraphs Data | Mustaches Take Over City Anthony DeScalfani continued his strong first season in a […]

[Caveat: I only saw the last inning. I heard the post-rain delay part of the game on the radio. Jason Linden had covered the game until midnight, but like a huge portion of the crowd at the friendly confines, Jason was done in by the rain delay.] The Reds dropped the third game of the […]

The Cincinnati Reds (22-28) look to rebound after last night’s loss to the Philadelphia Phillies (20-33). However, they’ll have their work cut out for them as they face the Phillies ace, one of the best pitchers in baseball. MARLON BYRD INJURY Marlon Byrd fractured his right wrist last night when he was hit by a […]

His unique feat has been easy for Reds fans to overlook. We’ve obsessed over every swing by Jay Bruce and home run surrendered by Jason Marquis. We’ve dissected every bunt by Billy and bad hop for Badenhop. We’ve been thrilled by the shiny new toys of Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias. Been deflated by disheartening injuries […]

The Cincinnati Reds (16-17) are playing for a series victory and .500 record in the final game of this three game series against the Atlanta Braves (15-18).
