Sal Romano has the fastball velocity. He has a nice breaking ball to work with, as well. Neither of them are elite pitches, but they give the right-hander a solid foundation to work from. Two-pitch starting pitchers without dominant stuff are rare for a reason, however: it’s hard to keep hitters guessing when they have […]

The 2017 MLB post-season is upon us and, alas, our beloved Cincinnati Reds did not qualify for any hot playoff action this year. Yesterday, our staff here at Redleg Nation made our playoff predictions, and you all laughed at our sub-par prognostication ability. Now that the respective Division Series’ have begun, we can all settle […]

With the Reds looking up from the bottom of the NL Central standings, fans have spent much of the 2017 season speculating not about the postseason, but about which players would be dealt at the trade deadline. It seemed to be a foregone conclusion that the team would part ways with Zack Cozart, and pitchers […]

As the “dog days” of August arrive and find the cellar-dwelling Reds preparing for a three-game home series against the St. Louis Cardinals, it’s time for a bit of perspective on how the “rebuild” is going. Much like the Kansas City Royals a couple of years ago and the Cubs last year, the Houston Astros […]

Tonight the Reds (42-63) open a three game series in Pittsburgh versus the Pirates (51-54) who are the next team up the ladder from the Reds at the bottom of the NL Central standings.  The Reds are 1-6 on the current 10-game road trip following Sunday’s 6-4 win against the Marlins. The Pirates return home […]

Just as it began to appear that the trade deadline would pass without the Reds making a deal, we get the news that Tony Cingrani has been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers: Sources: The Reds have traded Tony Cingrani. Not sure to whom yet. — Zach Buchanan (@ZHBuchanan) July 31, 2017 Sources: Reds will […]

Here’s a little Friday grab bag for your reading pleasure. Not Gonna Happen With Monday’s July 31 trade deadline looming, circumstances are conspiring against Dick Williams and the Reds front office. It looks increasingly unlikely they’ll be able to make a trade of any importance to further the agenda of rebuilding a winning team. Scott […]

The Reds lost the opening game of their four-city road trip to first-place Cleveland. The loss means a split in the 4-game inter-Ohio series, leaving the Ohio Cup in northern Ohio. Although last year Cleveland swept the four games with the Reds, so there’s that. The Reds are now 5-10 in interleague games with series […]

I’ve been watching too much soccer lately, partly because the Reds are awful and partly because it’s a nice way to kill time, but mostly because the U.S. men’s team is one of the most unintentionally exciting teams to watch. To be clear, the men’s team isn’t good. They aren’t bad either, they’re just sloppy. […]

The Reds have been outscored 61-20 in the 7-game home stand. They’ve given up 19 home runs. Tomorrow, they welcome Mr. Giancarlo Stanton and the Miami Marlins to GABP for a 3-game series. Hiding women and children is nowhere near enough. Cincinnati Reds 2 • Arizona Diamondbacks 12 || Box || Play Log || Statcast Luis Castillo pitched well after his first 11 […]

Following an exciting 11 inning win last night, the Reds face the Diamondbacks in a matinee today with a chance to win the series. For those who dare to dream big, a win today and a sweep of the Miami Marlins over the weekend would net the Reds a .500 homestand. This would be quite […]

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 […]
