Imagine a tall ladder. It’s full of people trying to get to the top.  There’s a guy toward the middle, but he’s slipping down, rung by rung. This struggling guy, let’s call him Louis.

Michael Lorenzen is one of the most likable Reds, having delivered one of the few endearing moments of the rebuild, donating significant time to charity, and having a good amount of success on the field. That field success has come in several different forms. He has shown promise as both a hitter and a pitcher, […]

Methodical. That’s how I’d describe the Reds win over the Chicago Cubs, even though the score was close. The Reds are now 7-3 against the Cubs this year, winners of the last five match ups. The blustery Wrigley Field wind blowing back toward home plate created a favorable context for the pitchers. Scooter Gennett and […]

Brewers 6, Reds 1 Box Score | Win Probability Good Things: –Michael Lorenzen. My goodness. Turn him into Otani. I’m only half kidding. Lorenzen pitched three innings, allowing only one run and hit a home run of his own. Not. Bad. At all. The @Reds’ pitchers can swing the bat. #PitchersWhoRake — MLB (@MLB) […]
