Reds baseball, and Opening Day more specifically, has been a central theme of my family ever since I can remember. It’s been woven into the fabric of my family’s life and has provided the back drop for some of my fondest memories and major life events. I can remember like yesterday my late mother forging […]

We’ve still not attained full Spring Training status, so this is usually rough times for People of Baseball. Well… not me. I roll around in all things Olympics, so this is my biannual party of staying awake 17 days straight. My favorite part is all the international harmony and sportsmanship. But if you don’t like […]

This report from the Reds Caravan was submitted by Joe Rettig, a long-time reader and supporter of Redleg Nation. Rettig has previously reported for us from Milwaukee, St. Louis, and Goodyear, Arizona. Thanks, Joe! This Saturday, I attended the last leg of the Reds Caravan Western Tour. This was a great way for Reds fans […]

When we were first married, in the middle of the night, Josh the Pilot and I had one of those intense, couple-y, scary, I-would-never-say-these-things-at-two-in-the-afternoon conversations. You know the kind I mean. We talked about careers, our relationship, what can be done about the current state of country music. I became upset at one point and […]

Join us in congratulating The Big Donkey @adamdunn_44 on being named the next inductee into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame! Dunn (2001-08) was the top vote-getter selected by fans, Reds alumni and select members of the media through the Modern Player Ballot. — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) November 29, 2017 Congratulations to Reds slugger […]

This week’s respondents are Chad Dotson, Matt Habel, Steve Mancuso, Clay Marshall and Tom Mitsoff. Our Daily Reds Obsession: Which of the Reds broadcasters do you like the most?  Chad: Marty Brennaman. Now that Vin Scully is retired, there isn’t a radio play-by-play broadcaster in all of baseball — and I’ve heard them all — who […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Matt Habel. If you remember, Matt wrote that Losing Isn’t Everything recently. Thanks, again Matt.] Earlier this year, there was a lot of discussion around Bryan Price’s bullpen management in terms of which players he used in the highest leverage situations. Given the monumental improvement of the relief […]

At what point the Reds-Giants seventeen-inning marathon did you realize that this was dumb and you hated yourself? Probably about the same time both teams made the same discovery: “Both these teams hate you,” someone confirmed on Twitter. As inning after inning wore on, Twitter became that one table at the bar everyone wanders up […]

Acquired at the trade deadline from the San Francisco Giants on July 31, 2015 (along with right-handed pitcher Keury Mella) in a trade for pitcher Mike Leake, Louisville native and former Louisville Cardinal Adam Duvall spent most all of 2016 entrenched as the Reds everyday left fielder and clean-up hitter.  Add to that an All Star selection, […]

Like baseball itself, Spring Training has changed and evolved over the years. Logistically, it sure has for Cincinnati. The Reds left Florida for Arizona in 2010, a move that probably still irks some in the Nation. Apparently, it came down to Sarasota and Goodyear and Reds Owner Bob Castellini didn’t want to pull the trigger. […]

To me, 2016 was a disastrous baseball season for the Cincinnati Reds. They finished in last place. They were no-hit. They blew leads. Their bullpen wasn’t just bad but historically bad. And while it’s true that no one expected anything from the Reds last year, it was still a painful thing to watch or listen […]

Daniel Matthews has contributed here at Redleg Nation a few times previously (here is his most recent contribution), and we’re always happy to have his perspective. Enjoy! No, it’s not our beloved Redlegs’ 2-1 defeat of the Oakland A’s in Game 4 of the 1990 World Series to complete the sweep. It’s the last two […]
