Last week, I had an opportunity to visit New York City again and it was a blast. (It always is.) Saw a couple of Broadway musicals, a couple of concerts, a Tottenham Hotspur soccer game…and the Reds happened to be in town, as well. I wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to check out the […]

The Reds turned their first triple play in over 21 years, but the Reds fell 4-2 in Yankee Stadium. The Reds offense was dominated by Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery, and didn’t get a hit until the 6th inning. The Reds made a run late. Billy Hamilton hit an RBI-double in the top of the 8th […]

The Cincinnati Reds (41-58) will make stop number two on their four-city road trip tonight at 7:05 against the New York Yankees (51-46). The Reds are just 2-9 to start the second half of the season, after falling 6-2 last night in Cleveland. The Reds had to settle for a split in their four games […]

Tonight the Reds continue to pursue an elusive first win following the All Star break in game 2 of the current series versus the DBacks at GABP.  In the five games played after the break, the Reds have allowed 46 runs while scoring 14. While neither of those numbers are good, the 46 runs allowed […]

In recent years (with the exception of 2015, of course), the Cincinnati Reds representatives haven’t had success in All-Star games. On Tuesday, Zack Cozart broke an 0-for-25 streak with a single to left field. It was the first hit by a Cincinnati Red in an All-Star game since Scott Rolen singled in Anaheim in 2010. But in the long, storied […]

It is Monday of All Star week which means it is Home Run Derby Day. In commemoration of the day, Redleg Nation decided to stage its own mythical Reds All Time Home Run Derby. Welcome to Crosley Riverfront Ball Park. The action is about to begin. First, a few words about our rules. Home Runs […]

When the rumor broke Thursday that the Washington Nationals had expressed to the Reds interest in Raisel Iglesias, I had a foot out the door about to leave town for 48 hours. I wrote a short news post and offered a couple sentences about a potential deal. Let me elaborate as we wait for another […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Matt Habel. If you remember, Matt wrote that checked in on the bullpen revolution recently. Thanks, again Matt.] Close your eyes. Clear your head. Forget about the last two-plus weeks of baseball. Take a journey back to the days of a declining playoff team, clinging to the shell […]

I love the MLB Draft, which is a weird sentence to write because the MLB Draft is universally regarded as the most anti-climactic of all the professional sports drafts. It’s just reading names that will likely never amount to much of anything and putting them in the clutches of organization they will probably never play […]

One-third of the 2017 baseball season is in the record books. To the surprise and delight of many, the Cincinnati Reds are 25-30 and within 4 games of first place in the NL Central division. Because this has taken place alongside the glorious struggles by the Cubs, Cardinals and Pirates, the Reds’ near-.500 start has […]

After waving silent bats for 8 innings, the Reds struck for two runs in the bottom of the 9th to tie the game. Then Devin Mesoraco, batting for the first time tonight, blasted a 99-mph fastball to left center for a walk-off homer. In play run(s). ‘Twas an exciting start for the home stand. Before […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Matt Habel. If you remember, Matt wrote about Rebuilding While Rebooting a couple of weeks ago. Thanks, again Matt.] 2017 was not penciled in to be a great year for the Reds, and despite some early signs of potential .500 baseball, things will more than likely regress […]
