Let’s go back roughly fifteen years ago. The year was 2003. The Reds finished the season 69-93, fifth in the NL Central, and had guys like Jimmy Haynes, Jose Guillen, and Austin Kearns manning the leaky ship that was the 2003 Cincinnati Reds. That same year the Reds drafted a right handed pitcher by the […]

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 […]

When the rumor broke Thursday that the Washington Nationals had expressed to the Reds interest in Raisel Iglesias, I had a foot out the door about to leave town for 48 hours. I wrote a short news post and offered a couple sentences about a potential deal. Let me elaborate as we wait for another […]

I love the MLB Draft, which is a weird sentence to write because the MLB Draft is universally regarded as the most anti-climactic of all the professional sports drafts. It’s just reading names that will likely never amount to much of anything and putting them in the clutches of organization they will probably never play […]

The Cincinnati Reds (28-30) will go for their first four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals (26-31) since May 2003. The Reds haven’t won four straight games at any point against the Cardinals since 2012. The Reds had their 13th comeback win of the season yesterday. The Reds trailed the Cardinals 4-1 entering the 7th […]

I vividly remember the joy of watching the Reds pitching staff during the 2010-2013 run as youngsters blossomed, and Bronson Arroyo arroyoed the competition. One night, Johnny Cueto would embarrass hitters with his ridiculous changeup and quick pitches. He even added that silly, little wiggle to his windup at some point. That was awesome. The […]

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, […]

It only took two hours and seventeen minutes for the first place Cincinnati Reds to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals. Reds top prospect Amir Garrett went into Busch Stadium, and pitched six brilliant, shutout innings in his MLB debut. The Reds bullpen was outstanding again, and the Reds got just enough offense to complete a […]

The first place Cincinnati Reds (2-1) will hit the road for the first time in 2017. They begin a three game series tonight at the St. Louis Cardinals (1-2) at 8:15 PM. For a second consecutive day, the Reds starting pitcher will be making his MLB debut. The Cardinals lost two of three to the […]

I’m sorry, you don’t trade Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier, Aroldis Chapman and Brandon Phillips and then give us Scott Feldman. But that’s what happened Monday when Bryan Price announced Feldman would take the mound for the Reds on Opening Day. Major league baseball teams choose Opening Day starters in advance for […]

Editor’s Note: I hope you will join me in welcoming Clay Marshall to the Redleg Nation family. Clay is an exceptionally talented writer, and I’m really excited that he’ll be giving us his thoughts from the west coast this season. Please make Clay feel welcome! — Chad Dotson “You say yes, I say no You […]
