The Reds traded RHP Ariel Hernandez to Los Angeles Dodgers for RHP Zach Neal and 1B Ibandel Isabel. Hernadez had been DFA to make 40 man roster space to enable the Reds to promote Dylan Floro to the big league bullpen. Hernandez has great stuff but has long battled command issues as shown by his […]

The rain came down in buckets as we made the drive to Cincinnati on Sunday morning, but I still held out hope that we’d be able to see the Reds play one final time before we flew home. After witnessing Thursday’s slaughter and Friday’s anemic offensive showing (we took a side trip on Saturday), I […]

Perhaps not a big deal in the grand scheme of things (okay, it’s definitely not a big deal), but I kinda thought Steve Selsky might be a decent bench bat for the Reds in 2017 and beyond: The Red Sox added depth at two spots on Wednesday, claiming outfielder/first baseman Steve Selsky off waivers from […]

The Reds aren’t going to make any big splashes in free agency during the offseason, but it sounds like we shouldn’t expect them to be as quiet as they were last winter, either. After taking the reigns from Walt Jocketty after the 2016 regular season concluded, general manager Dick Williams has been candid about the […]

The Reds minor league teams wrap up regular season play this week.  Two of the teams, Pensacola and Billings will then be competing in their league playoffs.  The AZL Reds were eliminated from the Arizona League playoffs as they lost 8-1 to the AZL Mariners last week in the single first round playoff game. The […]

Today, Major League Baseball celebrates Roberto Clemente Day. The career-long Pirate was a 15-time all-star before his life was tragically cut short on December 31, 1972 while delivering supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. On Dec. 23, 1972, Nicaragua suffered a devastating natural disaster-an earthquake. It left incredible damage throughout the capital of Managua. In […]

This is going to be another Adam Duvall post mostly. Please actually read it before you yell at me in the comments. So, the dust having cleared after the trade deadline, the Reds are stacked with middle infield prospects, but not so much in the outfield. In the immediate future, they have what seem to […]

With All-Star Game coming up next week, the trading deadline is right around the corner.  It will be interesting to see if the Reds are able to make any moves and what the return from them will be.  Hopefully they will bring some more good young talent our way to stock the farm.  With that, […]

The Reds are on a bit of a roll and have Anthony DeSclafani back in the rotation now.  The bullpen is about to get a boost as Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias are due to return from their rehab assignments next week.  We also just had Jose Peraza called up to replace an injured Jordan […]
