Chad recently wrote an article talking about a lost generation of Reds fans. I am among the lowly who barely remember the Reds last playoff series victory in 1995. I watched that entire sweep, but those memories fade just a little every year. I grew up on stories of the Big Red Machine. My father, […]

The 66-94 Reds host the 81-78 Pirates in this season’s penultimate game at Great American Ball Park today at 4:10 Eastern time. In this series of season-ending game previews, we took a look at what we’ve learned this year about the position players on Friday. Tomorrow we’ll review what we’ve learned this year about the […]

The Reds flung a lot of mud at the wall in 2018. They smeared Homer Bailey hoping he’d stick around long enough to justify his long term contract. The Reds tossed a crumbled up, dried out heap of Brandon Finnegan wishing he’d come together and cling to the starting rotation. They rolled up and slung […]

It was only a short time before my wife and I realized that our oldest son didn’t like to share. It was innate within him to hoard his toys, snacks, and other trinkets that he had deemed his own. When his younger brother became old enough to run and play as well, this problem was […]

Good start to the brief 3-game home stand. The Brewers’ starting pitcher tonight didn’t make it through the 2nd inning. Maybe they should have offered a little more for Matt Harvey.

Over the past five seasons, no team in the National League has lost more games than the Cincinnati Reds. That fact bears repeating. As of the morning of August 24, since the beginning of the 2014 season, the Reds have won eight fewer games than the second-worst team in the league and 10 fewer games […]

Not a surprise the Reds offense would be held in check without Joey Votto, Eugenio Suarez, Scott Schebler, Jesse Winker and Nick Senzel out of the lineup. Votto and Suarez are in the top 12 in the NL in run production. The Reds head down to Chicago for a 4-game series against the Cubs. Cincinnati […]

The Cincinnati Reds (56-70) will play the rubber game of a three-game series at Miller Park today at 2:10 PM against the Milwaukee Brewers (70-58). The Reds won a wild game last night, 9-7, lead by a 9th inning home run by Scooter Gennett. Starting Pitchers Robert Stephenson is running out of chances with the Reds. […]

It’s easy to forget now, but at one point, Cody Reed was one of the most highly prized pitching prospects in the game. As recently as 2016, he was rated the Reds’ No. 2 prospect and was the 34th-ranked prospect in baseball, per Baseball America. There was legitimate hope that he’d become a top-of-the-rotation arm […]

New day, same old Robert Stephenson. Since being called up from Triple-A Louisville two weeks ago Robert Stephenson has pitched in two games for a total of 5 and 2/3 innings. In those games Stephenson has an ERA of 7.94 and a total of 9 walks. Yes, you read that correctly…9 walks. Stephenson has been […]

Jason Linden joined me again this week for a fun episode of Redleg Nation Radio. We began by discussing current news, answered a few Twitter questions, then asked whether ownership was meddling too much in baseball operations. Short answer: Yes. We were also joined this week by Jeff Fassero, the pitching coach for Cincinnati’s Triple-A […]
