The Reds play the Chicago White Sox today at Goodyear Park. First pitch at 4:05 p.m. ET and broadcast by WSAI 1360 out of Cincinnati. Shin-Soo Choo continues to sit out after suffering back spasms on Friday. C. Trent Rosecrans has Choo saying: “There’s no reason to push it right now,” Choo said. “It’s spring training. […]

Michigan resident and Redleg Nation member, Tim Brandstetter drove to Lima yesterday for the Reds caravan event and filed this report:  My wife and I made the drive from that state up north, Detroit to be exact, to the caravan stop in Lima, Ohio. We got to the Lima Mall around 30 minutes before the […]

Here’s another report from Indianapolis, from Redleg Nation member Richard Baker. It’s been cold, grey, and snowy in Indianapolis–that doesn’t count as news. But the Reds Caravan is coming to Castleton Square Mall on Saturday morning–and that does, at least to me and 500 or so Reds fans in Indy. So early Saturday morning, I […]

Here is the report filed by Redleg Nation member John Rohrig from the Reds Southern Tour caravan stop in Charleston, WV. This evening the Reds Winter caravan rolled into Charleston, WV after a previous stop in Ashland, KY. Charleston, is fortunate in that it is the last stop of the day and, therefore, are few […]

Last night, the Reds Southern Tour caravan made its first public stop in Ashland, KY. Here is the report filed by Redleg Nation member Sarah Beckelheimer.  Cincinnati fans of every age filed into Fannin Automotives in Ashland Thursday to meet a few franchise favorites. Present at the event were 2012 Rookie of the Year nominee […]

We’re excited to announce a new project – The Nation Reports – where our commenters write original content for the site concerning the upcoming Reds caravan tours. The Reds have planned three routes with a total of 15 public stops over 2,800 miles, taking place Jan. 24-27. • The Northern Tour, with stops in Athens, Parkersburg, […]

Standard “day game after night game” lineup, plus Mike Leake pitching. Cueto was DL’d which makes him ineligible if the Reds make it to the NLCS although he would be eligible to pitch in the World Series if the Reds are part of that. Brisk weather today in the Queen City. Cooler than yesterday by […]

I remember when Super Todd Frazier played for the Reds. (Sigh.) I wish he were starting today at 3B. I also wish Homer Bailey was pitching instead of Bronson Arroyo. Nonetheless, go get ’em in Game Two! 1. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B 2. Zack Cozart (R) SS 3. Joey Votto (L) 1B 4. Ryan Ludwick (R) LF 5. Jay Bruce […]

They are 26 games above .500 for the first time this season. For a few hours, they’ll […]

Since all is well in Redsland these days, how about a little thought exercise about the future. JoeyMVP’s return to the lineup, say around September 1, will present Reds’ manager Dusty Baker with a difficult playing time dilemma. With Votto playing first base every day, two line-up spots (left field and third base) remain for three […]

John Fay reported a few minutes ago that the Reds are saying a trade isn’t imminent. “We’re not really close on anything,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. Jocketty said something similar on December 14, 2011: “But we’re still not close on anything. It’s very frustrating.” Then two days later, this happened. Within a week, so did this. […]

It seems like only yesterday when all we had to worry about was Todd Frazier’s playing time, a deluge of sacrifice bunts, Juan Pierre and the incredible disappearing Aroldis Chapman. Where did those far happier times go? Welcome Nation, to the new, grim reality of obsessing over Joey Votto’s left meniscus. Obligatory outrage section.The Reds […]
