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, […]

With another 90-loss season in the history books and no discernible improvement from the Reds’ pitching staff, the conversation surrounding the Reds for the next five months will center around trade rumors and free agent signings. But before those talks begin, it’s time to put a bow on the 2018 campaign and what we learned […]

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 […]

Way back at the beginning of this fateful season, when some of us were convinced the Reds could sneak into the playoffs, I decided to make some predictions. My crystal ball was full of optimism, hopeful that young players could step forward and that the front office would do something, anything that made sense. I […]

The Reds and Brewers conclude their 2018 season series tonight with game 3 of the current set at Miller Park. With a win, the Reds can record a series victory over the Brewers and pull to an even 3-3 on their current road trip  before moving on to Miami for 4 games to conclude the […]

Sure, it was just one game. Four innings. But Michael Lorenzen’s performance tonight was a much-needed dose of “maybe next year can be better” for Reds fans. He looked as overpowering and dominant as any Reds starter this year. Lorenzen had Brewers hitters off balance and retired the last seven batters he faced. He commands […]
