The sweep of the Giants last weekend seems like a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The Reds’ (56-74) trip to Chicago has gone about as well as you’d expect for a last-place team playing a first-place club. In every sense of the word, the Cubs (75-53) have dominated this series, […]

In the days leading up to Opening Day, we’ll be previewing The State Of The Reds at every single position on the field. Check out the previous installments of our Redleg Nation 2018 Season Preview series: —Shortstop —Second Base With the responsibility of managing an entire pitching staff, framing pitches, and throwing out runners while maintaining productivity […]

The 2017 MLB post-season is upon us and, alas, our beloved Cincinnati Reds did not qualify for any hot playoff action this year. Yesterday, our staff here at Redleg Nation made our playoff predictions, and you all laughed at our sub-par prognostication ability. Now that the respective Division Series’ have begun, we can all settle […]

First, I must apologize. Last week, I had the flu and thus no Rain Delay was Regularly Scheduled. Your weekly intake of lame jokes and annoyingly specific pop culture references was stripped right from your hands, and let’s be honest, most of you were probably happy to see it go. But now it’s back! Quiet […]

The losing streak is over! With some heroics on the mound by Asher Wojciechowski and a furious comeback by the red-hot offense, the Reds (20-22) bested the Rockies (27-17) on Saturday to snap a seven-game losing streak. They’ll try to turn it into a winning streak today when they take on Colorado for the finale of […]

Editor’s Note: I hope you will join me in welcoming Ashley Davis to the Redleg Nation family. This is actually not Ashley’s first piece for RN; she wrote this piece six years ago (!) about Joey Votto and Yonder Alonso. I’m really excited that she’s joining us at RN for the 2017 season. Please make […]

Since it’s the off-season and we can’t spend every day writing about why Raisel Iglesias needs to be a starter next season, I thought it would be an appropriate time to embark upon a project that I’ve been wanting to explore for years. That is, I thought it would be fun to look at the […]

So the Reds missed the postseason for the third straight year. That doesn’t mean baseball is over! The MLB Postseason features the best playoffs in professional sports. There are plenty of good story lines, and plenty of former Reds to root for. That is why without further ado, I’ll bring you my third consecutive MLB […]

With the 2015 season winding down, the Reds are destined for 90+ losses one year after dropping 86 games. For the second year in a row, the general feeling surrounding the club’s performance seems confined to a limited sorrow-filled breadth ranging between an upcoming trip to the dentist’s office and attending the wedding of a […]

The Cincinnati Reds (49-62) will try to avoid a series sweep against the San Diego Padres (54-60) today at 3:40 PM. The Reds got crushed last night 11-6, as stater Michael Lorenzen allowed seven earned runs in just an inning and a third. Starting Pitchers Today will feature the most exciting matchup of this three […]

A belated moment of appreciation for Mat Latos as he moves on to Miami. It’s been about a month and a half since the Reds traded the 6′ 6″ right-hander to Miami. There’s been plenty of discussion about the trade itself: salary had to be cut, the Reds weren’t going to re-sign him, etc. We’ll […]

Take a deep breath and relax Reds fans, the Latos trade wasn’t as bad as it may seem. As everyone knows by now, the Reds traded Mat Latos to the Miami Marlins for pitcher Anthony DeSclafani and catcher Chad Wallach. The early impression for most Reds fans is a feeling of slight disappointment. Many people […]
