The season is now over. It was not great. It was really, really not great. Mostly because of pitching. I wrote about that here. But there is one aspect of the team fans should feel good about. Because of injuries and slumps, it wasn’t so apparent at the end of the season, but the offense […]

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 […]

As the Cincinnati Reds mercifully open their season-ending three-game series against the Pirates tonight at 6:40 Eastern time at Great American Ball Park, pretty much everyone is glad that this forgettable season is coming to an end. It’s the fourth straight season with 90-plus losses, a team record. There are some positive signs buried in […]

I grow weary of people struggling to find a bright spot in the 2018 Reds. You have it. You have it. You’ve had it all along, and you’ve had it every year this team has been in existence: They are one of the few threads that bind us, as a city, together. For those of […]

A year ago, I wrote about the Reds offseason trade chips because Dick Williams said the front office might pursue pitching help for 2018. As we now know, the Reds didn’t add any starters in the offseason, hoping instead for a return to health and form for Anthony Desclafani, Homer Bailey, and Brandon Finnegan. That […]

The Reds are now 63-77 under Jim Riggleman, 23-39 since the All-Star break. Cincinnati Reds 3 (66-92) • Kansas City Royals 4 (55-102) Box […]

The Reds (66-89) try to revive the offense against the Marlins (60-93) in game three of this series at Marlins Park tonight. First pitch will be at 7:10 ET. Against his former team, Anthony DeSclafani looks to continue what Luis Castillo did in his brilliant 8.1 inning pitching performance yesterday. Starting Pitchers Pitcher IP ERA […]

Marlins caveat applies to be sure, but Cody Reed followed up his five shutout innings against the Cubs with six more against Miami. Reed is making a strong case for inclusion in the 2019 Reds starting rotation. Luis Castillo, who used to be in the Marlins system, pitches for the Reds tomorrow night. Cincinnati Reds […]

After a 2-4 start to the last road trip of the season, the Reds (65-88) look to finish strong in Miami. First pitch is at 7:10 ET. The Marlins (59-92) currently sit in last place in the NL East, traded all of the star players, and are struggling to average 10,000 fans a game–their average […]
