On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to visit Greeneville, TN, the home of Cincinnati’s newest minor league franchise, the Greeneville Reds. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. Greeneville plays on the campus of Tusculum University, a scenic locale just over an hour away from Knoxville, TN. The stadium is called Pioneer Park, […]

The Cincinnati Reds (41-60) have been in a tailspin since the all-star break, dropping 11 of 13 games and three straight. For a second consecutive weekend, they’ll take on the Miami Marlins (46-53), this time on the road. The Fish stayed hot after taking two of three in Great American Ball Park, again winning two […]

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 […]

It’s a busy week for the Reds down on the farm. There are lots of player promotions to cover. Let’s start with the players recently promoted from the farm up to the Reds. OF Jesse Winker, .317/.399/.411/.810 at AAA, got the call up to the Reds to provide an extra bat for the bench and […]

The Reds appear to be shuttling pitchers between Cincinnati and Louisville at a higher frequency than they make calls to bullpen.  It seems that this constant shuffling of arms has become necessary to keep fresh arms on hand since they decided to stash a 3rd string catcher on the roster and go with a 12 […]

Man, this off-season seems longer than most. There’s nothing going on…and that’s probably the best thing for this organization, or so I’m trying to believe. Either way, it’s unfortunate for a group of devoted writers who like to publish words about the Cincinnati Reds (I’m talking about Redleg Nation here). The club isn’t giving us much to […]

We’ve got about 4 weeks left in the Minor League season and 3 weeks until the Major League rosters can expand for September call ups.  Hopefully service time issues won’t affect who we’ll get to see called up.  Getting to see some of these prospects we’ve been hearing and reading about is about all we […]

The trade deadline has come and gone.  The Reds dealt Jay Bruce to the New York Mets for 2B Dilson Herrera and LH SP Max Wotell.  Jay Bruce will be sorely missed in the Red’s lineup.  The Reds recalled  OF Scott Schebler (.311/.370/.564/.934 at AAA), who was just named the International League Player of the […]

Yesterday the Cincinnati Reds traded Jay Bruce to the Mets. I’m sure that if you are reading this article that you are already knew that. The organization landed infielder Dilson Herrera and left handed pitcher Max Wotell in return for Bruce. Nick Kirby wrote some about that yesterday here at Redleg Nation. I wrote about […]
