With a painfully slow and dull free agency, much of the offseason focus in baseball has centered around the Hall of Fame and which players are worthy of election. While candidates like Chipper Jones, Jim Thome, and Vladimir Guerrero are locks to achieve baseball immortality, there are a number of intriguing players who don’t stand […]

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 […]

The Reds Hall of Fame announced today the “Modern Player Ballot” for induction into the Reds Hall of Fame Class of 2018. The six former Reds players on the ballot are: —Reggie Sanders —Adam Dunn —John Franco —Danny Graves —Scott Rolen —Aaron Boone You need to vote for Reggie Sanders at least once a day, […]

During the early part of this season, the Reds have reminded me of another Reds team from not long ago: the 2009 team. Why 2009? The Reds finished 78-84, 4th in the NL Central that season, but it was the year before the magical 2010 division championship. The Reds had a number of prospects who […]

When I played high school ball (a phrase that seems to engender me with some degree of credibility as a baseball writer but really means absolutely nothing), the whole team would be sent to the batting cages during a rain delay, presumably to make ourselves better or something equally ridiculous. Instead, we would all congregate in […]

In case you missed it, former Red Edwin Encarnacion hit a walk-off home run in the American League wild card game on Tuesday night: Tip for Texas… don't throw Edwin Encarnacion home run derby pitches in extra innings. @Encadwin @BlueJays #ALWildCard #OurMoment pic.twitter.com/x9VtZbRGKX — Tim Viper (@TimViper) October 5, 2016 Over the last few years, […]

Before the 1961 season started, Reds General Manager Bill DeWitt made a trade and acquired a third baseman by the name of Gene Freese. He acquired Freese from the Chicago White Sox for Cal McLish and Juan Pizzaro. This one was a steal. DeWitt’s trade was a big part in the Reds success that year. […]

• Mr. Intangible Reports coming out of Cleveland indicate that Marlon Byrd has tested positive for PED. If they prove accurate, it will be Byrd’s second violation. He was suspended for 50 games in 2012. Byrd is hitting .270/.326/.452 for Cleveland. He played in three of the four games against the Reds, going 5-14, scoring 4 runs […]

The arrival of the 2010 season generated plenty of excitement for fans of the local ball club. All-Star talent was deployed across the field, from youngsters Joey Votto and Jay Bruce to veterans Scott Rolen and Brandon Phillips. Four-fifths of Dusty Baker’s rotation had been settled. Aaron Harang, Johnny Cueto, Bronson Arroyo and Homer Bailey would […]

Everyone knows That Guy. He’s the one who eats pizza with soy sauce and calls its a superfood. He’s the one who does the robot transitioning into the worm whenever he’s forced to dance. The one who played four sports in high school and still talks about it. That Guy is always the subject of water […]

So long, Todd Frazier. You’re sensational, but you’re gone. If you’ve been even barely conscious over the last couple of weeks, you’ve noticed that the Reds are working the phones, day by day, trying to trade pretty much every asset they have. We can discuss ad infinitum — and I’m sure we will — the […]

With the 2015 season winding down, the Reds are destined for 90+ losses one year after dropping 86 games. For the second year in a row, the general feeling surrounding the club’s performance seems confined to a limited sorrow-filled breadth ranging between an upcoming trip to the dentist’s office and attending the wedding of a […]
