Drafted by the Reds in the first round of the 2007 MLB draft, Devin Mesoraco was one of those homegrown players who everyone thought could be the next franchise catcher. And he was! Unfortunately, however, it was short-lived. Mesoraco made his MLB debut on September 3, 2011 at the age of 23 against the St. […]

The Cincinnati Reds have now won four consecutive baseball games. They have won back to back games in LA against the Dodgers for the first time since 2011. The Matt Harvey era is officially underway for the Reds, and it is off to a roaring start. Harvey pitched four shutout innings on a limited pitch […]

If you went to bed before the game last night ended (no shame if you did. I fell asleep too), the Reds won their third straight game. I believe that is called a winning streak. The Reds are 3-0 since trading for Matt Harvey, but the real question gets asked tonight: can the Reds win […]

The first inning hadn’t even come to a close, and it already felt like a lost cause. Tyler Mahle was getting squeezed. Joey Votto couldn’t field. The pitch count ticked toward 30. The Dodgers drew first blood. The game seemed over before the Reds had gotten three outs. If you think I’m being overdramatic, consider […]

Today is May Day; but, given the Reds most recent meltdown, no one would fault manager Jim Riggleman if he was heard screaming “mayday! mayday! mayday!” during the seventh inning last night. However tonight is a new night and game; and, the Reds will attempt to set the ship right against the Brewers in game […]
