No, surely. I’ve been saying for the last few months that Jesse Winker needs to be leading off for the Reds, and he needs to get at least 550 at-bats in the 2018 season. Nothing I’ve seen from him either last year (.298/.375/.529) or this spring (.400/.450/.629, with a mammoth home run) has caused me […]

The Cincinnati Reds have signed a couple of veterans and invited them to spring training with the major league club. News broke tonight that outfielder Ben Revere had signed with the club. Sources: Ben revere agrees to reds deal — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 25, 2018 Revere is expected to earn 1M to 1.5M assuming […]

The Reds outfield finished 28th out of 30 MLB in teams in 2017 in wRC+ (86). That probably comes as a bit of surprise to some, as the Reds as a team were pretty good offensively (they ranked 15th in the MLB in wRC+ at 96). That was because the Reds employed quite possibly their […]

This week, I found myself contemplating the recent declaration that the Reds were finished adding to the roster. So I sat down and looked at the roster as it stands, trying to see what I thought about the decision to stand pat. Tucker Barnhart C Joey Votto 1B Nick Senzel 2B Eugenio Suarez 3B Jose […]

The title of this post is deliberately misleading. You’re all thinking of the cartoon and expecting a post about how oblivious the Reds are being. (Some clueless editor even added it as the featured image on the home page. Good work, Chad.) Nope. Not today. There’s a lot of hand-wringing around the internets, which is […]

This week’s respondents are Jason Linden, Wes Jenkins, Bill Lack, Grant Freking, and Chad Dotson. Our Daily Reds Obsession: Will Jesse Winker win the 2018 Rookie of the Year award? Jason: Nope. Because Nick Senzel will. Yes, I’m serious. What I think can be realistically expected from Winker: an OBP right around .400, enough homers […]

With two games left, the Reds (67-93) are certainly not ending the season on a high note. They lost another one-run game yesterday afternoon — dropping their record in such contests to 13-22 — and have now dropped nine of the last 10. They’ll look to turn their fortunes around against the Cubs (91-69) this […]

The Short Version: Leading 4-2 entering the bottom of the eighth inning, Michael Lorenzen and the Reds snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, as an Ian Happ home run gave Chicago a 5-2 win. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (67-93) 4 8 2 Chicago Cubs (91-69) 5 9 0 W: Duensing (1-1) L: […]

It seems like just yesterday that the excitement for Opening Day overtook the city of Cincinnati once again. But even in another losing season for the Reds (67-92), time seemed to whiz by. Now — all of a sudden — we’re in the final weekend of the season. Not much is on the line as the […]
