With another 90-loss season in the history books and no discernible improvement from the Reds’ pitching staff, the conversation surrounding the Reds for the next five months will center around trade rumors and free agent signings. But before those talks begin, it’s time to put a bow on the 2018 campaign and what we learned […]

Recently, I started re-reading The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. In some abstract way, the impetus behind that decision was that I wanted to start writing a baseball novel and how else to pump up your ambition than to read the best baseball novel of all time? (Yes, I will consider The Natural an acceptable answer as […]

Following yesterday’s strange news that Matt Harvey wouldn’t be traded, the even more concerning news that Bob Castellini had once again stuck his nose into baseball operations, and a crushing walk-off defeat to the Cubs (74-53), the Reds (56-73) could really use a win to lift the collective spirit of the fanbase again. Fortunately, the […]

When you’re in your early 20s and convinced that time goes fast and that you must live in the now or risk losing the future, you forget that a baseball season takes a lifetime. Or, to be less melodramatic, a gestation period at least. Since the Reds’ season began, I have started dating a girl, […]

Billy Hamilton had two hits in what could be his 659th and final game in a Cincinnati Reds uniform. Both Hamilton and Harvey were claimed on waivers, and the Reds have until tomorrow to make a trade to the mystery team or they will remain Reds through at least the end of the season. Anthony […]

Returning home proved to be just the ticket for the Reds (51-65) last night, as they pulled off an impressive shutout victory over the first-place Diamondbacks (64-53). It was a much-needed pitching performance after several duds during the nine-game road trip. Tonight, the club will try to keep building some momentum when it sends its […]

It is matinee time this afternoon as the Reds look to salvage a split in this 2 game series with the Tigers prior to moving on to DC where they will face the Nationals in a 4 game set. Today’s game time is 1:10pm Eastern. Recall that FoxSports Ohio has wall to wall Reds this […]

The Reds appear to be nearing a pivotal point in the rebuild process. It’s time to strap in and see how they will assemble the final pieces of the this complicated puzzle we call the Reds next winning baseball team. Let’s hope they knock it out of the park. Now let’s see what is going […]

With the trade deadline looming and the Reds being rumored to be in the mix for making some deals, I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to see them do. Not so much as to which players are dealt and which ones are coming back, but more so, what is the plan and intent behind […]

The Reds four full season minor league teams open play two weeks from now. The AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos, A+ Daytona Tortugas, and A Dayton Dragons all begin play on Thursday, April 5th. The AAA Louisville Bats start their season the following day on Friday, April 6th. I figured it would be best to not […]

Projections in baseball are a funny thing. For the most part, they’re a crapshoot. As hard as it is to hit a round ball with a round bat, it’s even harder for us to try to predict just how successful a given player will be at hitting a round ball with a round bat, not […]
