The Short Version: Cincinnati scores seven runs in the seventh inning, turning a 6-1 deficit into the club’s seventh consecutive win. Oh yeah, and they also swept the stupid Cubs. Let’s just enjoy that for a moment, shall we? Final R H E Chicago Cubs (42-33) 6 10 0 Cincinnati Reds (32-45) 8 11 1 […]

The Short Version: The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Cubs thanks to the big bat of Eugenio Suarez. The good guys have now won five in a row, and eight of their last ten. Are you not entertained? Final R H E Chicago Cubs (42-31) 3 4 1 Cincinnati Reds (30-45) 6 12 1 W: Castillo […]

With six wins in their last eight games and a 21-21 record over the past 42, the Reds are playing the kind of baseball that fans with an optimistic outlook hoped for this year. The 7-24 start to the season can be attributed to the typical long injury list to start the season, particularly to […]

The Reds bullpen has been good recently. In fact, it’s been very good. After struggling in April through the mercifully short lived Gallardo/Quackenbush Era, and a return to health for Michael Lorenzen and David Hernandez, the Reds relief corp has quickly become one of the best in the game. In the month of May, the […]

My fajitas took a bit longer to prepare than expected. By the time I had finished my lunch and settled in for the Reds game exactly eight minutes after it had started, Tyler Mahle had thrown 15 pitches. One had left the yard. 1-0 Tigers. Welcome to Reds baseball, where it feels like the hope […]

The Short Version: Billy Hamilton had another of his Billy Days, Eugenio Suarez homers again, Joey Votto drives in two runs, and the Reds salvage a game of the series in Pittsburgh. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (26-45) 8 13 0 Pittsburgh Pirates (35-36) 6 11 0 W: DeSclafani (2-1) L: Musgrove (2-2) S: […]

As much as I want to write more about the Reds rebuild, or how the team will be good with one or two more prospects, or how maybe we just need (another) management change, I really don’t want to write about that. I can’t take it right now. Writing about the Reds at this point […]

How’s this for an opener: The Reds’ starting rotation is worse than the University of Florida’s, the Reds’ bullpen is better than the one currently at the top of the AL Central standings, and Thom Brennaman is a schoolyard bully. Looks like a three-pitch strikeout of a sentence to me, so let’s break this down […]

The Short Version: The Reds clawed back from a 5-2 deficit to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth, and Jesse Winker walked it off in the bottom of the 13th. Reds win! Final — 13 innings R H E Colorado Rockies (32-30) 5 13 0 Cincinnati Reds (22-41) 7 10 1 W: […]

The Short Version: The Cincinnati Reds have lost four in a row, and seven of their last nine. Including tonight’s contest against the Colorado Rockies. This is a dumpster fire. Final R H E Colorado Rockies (32-29) 6 8 1 Cincinnati Reds (21-41) 3 11 1 W: Gray (6-6) L: Romano (3-7) S: Davis (20) FanGraphs […]

The Arizona Diamondbacks sluggish offense, last in many hitting categories, was no match for the Reds poor pitching and awful defense.
