The Reds and Pirates meet this afternoon in a 12:35 matinee at GABP to close out the series and homestand for the Reds.  Last night was a tough 12 inning loss for the Reds. If you had to get to bed before the game ended you can check out the RLN recap here.  Despite the loss […]

Tonight the Reds will be looking to make it two in a row over the Pirates in the middle game of their current series at GABP. A Reds win tonight would secure a winning series for the Reds and set the stage for them to go for the sweep and a winning homestand on Thursday […]

So, last night on Twitter, I made the egregious suggestion that Scooter Gennett was likely not a player to count on over the long term. Correspondingly, my mentions caught fire like dry brush at a fireworks show. Today, we’re gonna do something. We’re gonna look at every player currently playing a prominent role on the […]

Last month I discussed what a starting pitching rotation needs to accomplish to successfully complete its role. The conclusion of the post was that the future of the Reds rotation was in the hands of their young arms. If you missed that post or want to refresh your memory, you can read it here. Today let’s take […]

Which one of these is not like the other? It’s a list of the current Reds bullpen pitchers sorted by the statistic of strikeout percentage minus walk percentage (K%-BB%) for the 2018 season. I included the major league average for relief pitchers to provide context. Why focus on strikeouts and walks? Here’s a succinct explanation offered […]

It now requires big, calculated expenditures of assets — money and players — on impact upgrades. The Brewers acquisition of Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain come to mind. […]
