We know you need answers about the upcoming Reds season, so our authors got together to offer a few. We also thought we’d change-up the standard package by asking a few unusual, but important, questions. We even ventured a couple semi-educated guesses about 2019. Thanks to the 17 writers who had the time to participate: […]

Can you smell it? Can you smell the fresh cut grass, the hot dogs sizzling on their grills, the dirt rubbing against the newly minted leather? Can you hear the mowers whirring, the organ starting up, the smack of the ball against the bullpen catcher’s mitt? Or can you just feel it in your core, […]
