The Kansas City Royals present a dystopic Ghost of Baseball Future for the Reds. Arguably, the Reds new front office used the 2014-2015 Royals as a template for the early phase of the team’s rebuild, assembling a roster around speed and contact hitting. With tonight’s win, the Reds staved off being tied with the Royals […]

The Cincinnati Reds (23-43) will play a quick two game series tonight at 8:15 PM on the road against one of the only two teams in the MLB with a worse record. The Kansas City Royals (22-44) are far removed from the team that won the World Series just three seasons ago. They have lost […]

The Short Version: A huge day by Billy Hamilton and solid work by the Reds pitching staff leads the Reds to their first victory over the Cardinals in ten games this season. Final R H E St. Louis Cardinals (35-28) 3 11 0 Cincinnati Reds (23-43) 6 5 1 W: DeSclafani (1-1) L: Martinez (3-3) […]

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 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 Reds meet the Rockies tonight in game 2 of the current 3 game series at GABP. If the Reds harbor hopes of recording a series win, they must win this one to keep those hopes alive after they wasted a decent return effort by Anthony DeSclafani and 17 hits by their offense in Tuesday’s […]

Late last season, the Reds starting pitching situation looked promising. They had an abundance of young, talented pitchers ready to resuscitate a rotation that was on life support from a couple years of either pitchers past their prime (Bronson Arroyo) or castoffs from other organizations (Asher Wojciechowski, Lisalverto Bonilla, Tim Adleman, etc.). The new-found health […]

Losing isn’t the problem. Losing is the by-product of what happens on the field. It’s what happens when Sal Romano gives up 5 runs in 6 innings. Losing it what happens when Scooter Gennett makes a throwing error or when Jose Peraza fails to get on base. Most of us expected the Reds to lose […]

Things in RedsLand have been so crazy lately that it’s hard to formulate a poll. For instance, I put up a poll asking about the rotation and a few hours later, Homer was headed to the bullpen (the poll results strongly support this move). Anthony DeSclafani just made what will probably be his final rehab […]

The Cincinnati Reds (19-37) will try to avoid being swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks (28-26) today at 3:40 PM. The Diamondbacks had come into this series 2-15 in their last 17 games. Starting Pitchers Sal Romano could be pitching to keep his spot in the rotation. Romano has a 13.28 ERA over his last three starts, […]

The Short Version: The Reds led 4-1 after three innings — thanks largely to good ol’ Eugenio Suarez — but Sal Romano can’t hang on. Reds lose. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (18-34) 4 8 0 Colorado Rockies (27-24) 5 8 0 W: Gray (5-6) L: Romano (2-6) S: Davis (18) FanGraphs Win Probability […]

After a rare successful visit to the West Coast earlier in the month, the Reds (18-33) are heading back for a six-game road trip starting this weekend. The first stop is Denver, where they’ll take on the Rockies (26-24), the leaders in the NL West, tonight at 8:40 p.m. ET. Starting Pitchers Name IP ERA […]
