The minor league regular seasons are all wrapped up except for Billings who plays their regular season finale today. The Reds have three farm teams competing in post season competition. The AA Pensacola team qualified for the playoffs by clinching a 2nd half wild card spot. Last night they dropped the first game of a […]

For years, I’ve followed both Jonah Keri’s and Fangraphs’ versions of establishing top-50 MLB Trade Value lists. Both annual rankings seek to provide an idea of how the baseball industry values its players, creating a sort of “absolute value” for what players could fetch on the open market. It’s a delicate balance of friendly contracts, […]

The Reds appear to be nearing a pivotal point in the rebuild process. It’s time to strap in and see how they will assemble the final pieces of the this complicated puzzle we call the Reds next winning baseball team. Let’s hope they knock it out of the park. Now let’s see what is going […]

After a slow start that lingered through the month of May, the 2018 Reds offense has shifted into high gear. It has produced the third most runs in the National League. In June and July, our Reds have outscored the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Brewers, even Cleveland. In fact, they’ve put more runs on […]

In Little League, no one wanted to play second base. Second sackers were too small to play first, too weak to make the throw from second or third, and too slow to cover the outfield. Playing second base was insulting. It was the coach calling you a runt and good-for-nothing small person in front of […]

This week’s respondents are Chris Garber, Jason Linden, Jackson Thurnquist, Jordan Barhorst, and Bill Lack. Our Weekly Reds Obsession: How would you resolve the Nick Senzel question (and, relatedly, the Scooter Gennett question)? By the way, I sent this question out to our writers on Friday. You know what was announced on Saturday. Chris Garber: […]

Pop quiz, hotshot. Who beat out George Foster for a roster spot on the Big Red Machine in 1973? Who won consecutive batting titles while in the Reds minor league system for Three Rivers (Class AA) and Indianapolis (Class AAA) in 1971 and 1972? (Imagine the hype if this had been done by Nick Senzel, […]

The Reds have signed 21 of the 41 players that they selected in the draft. These players will mostly stock the three Reds Rookie level teams in the US which begin play over the next week. The Billings Mustangs will kick off Rookie level play for the Reds tomorrow. The Rookie Billings Mustangs begin play […]

The 2018 MLB Draft is completed and the following are the Reds picks in the first 10 rounds. 2018 Reds Draft Picks Rounds 1-10 1 (5) Jonathan India, 3B, Florida 2 (47) Lyon Richardson, RHP, Jensen Beach (Fla.)

I can only hope that Reds have removed Jesse Winker from the outfield rotation in an attempt to showcase the other three OFs for some trade deadline moves. I would hope they would send him down to Louisville to continue to get playing time while they are doing so. It’s imperative that the Reds make […]

The Reds recalled IF/OF Brandon Dixon who was hitting .326/.371/.527/.899 at AAA Louisville. The 26 year old utility man lead the Bats with 12 2B, 14 RBI, 8 SB, and 38 SO. Dixon is very versatile as he can play 1B/2B/3B/LF/RF and provides good RH power from the bench. The Reds have also recalled RH […]

So, last night on Twitter, I made the egregious suggestion that Scooter Gennett was likely not a player to count on over the long term. Correspondingly, my mentions caught fire like dry brush at a fireworks show. Today, we’re gonna do something. We’re gonna look at every player currently playing a prominent role on the […]
