The winter 2015 three team trade of fan favorite and Home Run Derby star Todd Frazier to the Chicago White Sox brought back right fielder Scott Schebler, infielder Brandon Dixon, and the current Reds second baseman, Jose Peraza. After slow starts the past two seasons, Schebler’s power (he currently leads the team in home runs) […]

I have a post up today for Cincinnati Magazine that takes a fun stroll down the recent history of Reds late bloomers. You might find it interesting. My Adam Duvall skepticism is certainly eroding, I’ll say that. Check it out. Jason LindenJason has been a fan of the Reds since he was born. He really […]

There exists a malady known as “refeeding syndrome,” in which a starving person experiences further physical distress after suddenly receiving nutrients. In other words, you can die from eating too much after eating too little. Watching a person in a Darth Vader costume trail through the festival ramps of Great American Ball Park this weekend […]

[This post was submitted by loyal Nation member Matt Habel. Thanks, Matt!] This post came about from a commenter who posed the question, “Does the Reds winning coincide with Billy getting on base?” It is certainly an intriguing question which anecdotally would seem to have a very obvious answer and has even been brought up […]

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 […]

Three undeniable truths that I never thought I would have the fortune — much less ability — to utter: The 2017 Reds are atop the National League Central and more than one game has been played. Two young Argentinian boys just played FIFA in my living room, choosing to pit Lionel Messi against Lionel Messi, […]

The Reds B-team made the trip this afternoon to Camelback Ranch to play the Chicago White Sox. The Camelback Ranch facility is gorgeous and shared by the White Sox and Dodgers and about 20 minutes north of Goodyear Ballpark. In a welcome development, last night’s storm that shortened the game with the Cubs brought much […]

I’m sorry, you don’t trade Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier, Aroldis Chapman and Brandon Phillips and then give us Scott Feldman. But that’s what happened Monday when Bryan Price announced Feldman would take the mound for the Reds on Opening Day. Major league baseball teams choose Opening Day starters in advance for […]

Editor’s Note: I hope you will join me in welcoming Clay Marshall to the Redleg Nation family. Clay is an exceptionally talented writer, and I’m really excited that he’ll be giving us his thoughts from the west coast this season. Please make Clay feel welcome! — Chad Dotson “You say yes, I say no You […]

We watch baseball because it’s fun. The strategy on and off the field invigorates us. Not only is the game fun, but we connect to family and friends through baseball and its tradition. As the World Series winds up every year, I always find myself fearing the long, cold, baseball-less winter that emerges. In the […]

The Reds pitchers and catchers report to Goodyear, AZ for spring training on Valentine’s Day this year, and for once, there’s a fair amount of overlap between the questions long-term couples face every year around this time and the questions the Reds hope to have answered by the time the season starts. Pop a bottle, […]

The lull in Reds news will soon end. Pitchers and catchers report in less than a month. With the young team and sorting season we Reds fans expect, spring training will be loaded with important developments. Jason Linden’s thought-provoking column this morning (All of a Sudden, I Trust the Front Office) concerns a vital topic […]
