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 […]

Self explanatory. Game One is tomorrow night. Who wins the series, how many games? Short paragraph explaining prediction. Tie-breaker is number of strikeouts for former Reds pitchers (don’t forget Ryan Madson). Steve MancusoSteve grew up in Cincinnati as a die-hard fan of Sparky’s Big Red Machine. After 25 years living outside of Ohio, mostly in […]

What if I told you, back in 2010, that Edison Volquez would be starting the first game of an LCS five years later? And that he would go 6.0 shutout innings, striking out four but, true to form, walking four as well? Would you believe me? I wouldn’t have believed me, but there he was […]

After facing the World Series champion over the weekend, the Cincinnati Reds (18-20) travel to Kansas City to face the 2014 AL Champion Royals (24-14) for a brief two game visit. The Royals made the playoffs last season as one of the two wild card teams and swept all three rounds of the American League […]

After a 5-5 road trip, the Cincinnati Reds (15-16) return home to host the Atlanta Braves (14-17) for a Monday night game on ESPN. The Braves come to town in the middle of a nine game road trip, which started off poorly as they were swept by the Washington Nationals over the weekend. Game 1 […]

Manager Mike Scoscia, the longest tenured manager in baseball, leads the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim into Great American Ball Park for a […]

Welcome to the end of this series. I hope everyone has enjoyed it. I’ve certainly enjoyed reading your comments and I’ve really appreciated all the feedback from you. Last year, when I made this update, a lot had changed. Ryan Madson was hurt. Todd Frazier was sent down. This time, well, not much has changed. […]

Baseball’s winter meetings have come to an end and the Reds didn’t accomplish a single thing. John Fay asked Walt Jocketty for a word or two and this is part of what the Reds’s GM said: “You come in with great anticipation and optimism on certain things,” Jocketty said. “Then they don’t work out. It’s […]

I refuse to get my hopes up about anything relating to the Reds, but I’d certainly be pleased if the Reds gave Aroldis Chapman a serious look as a starting pitcher. Jon Heyman (take this for what it’s worth) says the Reds are looking to do just that. Go read the piece; evidently, the Reds […]

Now that the decision on player options is complete (with Ryan Madson and Ryan Ludwick both declining their mutual options), the next order of business is whether to offer arbitration to eligible players currently under team control or non-tender for the 2013 season. Tim Dierkes of MLBtraderumors summarized the Reds arbitration eligible players in a […]
