Well, now that Bryan Price is gone, the Reds are sure to make the postseason! Right? They only have to win…wait, 3-15?!? This man managed the team to 3-15?! Is it even possible to make the playoffs at this point? So the short answer is: Yes and no. Before diving into the various semantics of […]

There’s an episode of Cheers where Norm has an interview for his dream job as a beer sampler at a local brewery. At the bar before the interview, Rebecca Howe tells Norm a story of her blowing an interview so badly she ended up singing knick-knack-paddy-whack-give-a-dog-a-bone. Rebecca’s story gets stuck in Norm’s head. When Norm […]

The Reds and Brewers meet today in a 1:40pm matinee at Miller Park to conclude the current 3 game series in Milwaukee.  17 games into the season, the Reds have yet to record consecutive victories; and, on the heels of Tuesday’s loss cannot do so today. However with a win today the Reds could secure […]

The rain came down in buckets as we made the drive to Cincinnati on Sunday morning, but I still held out hope that we’d be able to see the Reds play one final time before we flew home. After witnessing Thursday’s slaughter and Friday’s anemic offensive showing (we took a side trip on Saturday), I […]

The nightmare continues for the Reds. The Cincinnati baseball team is now 2-11, continuing their worst start since 1955. Tyler Mahle started strong for the Reds, but got beat around in the 6th inning and they were quickly down 5-0. The Reds battled back and cut it to 5-3. They got the tying run to […]

Most of the civilized world knows today as Friday the 13th. Here in Redleg Nation, though, it may become known as Nick Senzel Day. As our Steve Mancuso reported in a post that was lauded by members of the Cincinnati media for its clarity, today is the date minor league players can be promoted in […]

Yesterday, I planned to run a poll to gauge how ready the fan base was to stop waiting and have the Reds put their foot on the collective gas. Well, I ran that poll and posting it here is pointless. Essentially the fan base wants the 25 best players on the roster either NOW or […]

After the Reds locked up Eugenio Suarez for a better part of the next decade (a deal I kinda-sorta predicted in the first installation of this series, btw), I thought it’d be a while before the Reds extended another player. Devin Mesoraco and Tucker Barnhart both got their extensions, Joey Votto is here for the […]

Four pitchers and an outfielder walk into a bar. The outfielder orders drinks for all of them, setting the table so to speak. The first pitcher knocks his drink over while the second spills his all over his front. The third, seeing his friends’ mishaps, takes his nice and slow, making sure to hit his […]

The Short Version: The Reds are shut out on one hit by Pirates starter Jameson Taillon, and Eugenio Suarez breaks his thumb. Can things get any worse? Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (2-6) 0 1 0 Pittsburgh Pirates (7-2) 5 11 0 W: Taillon (2-0) L: Mahle (1-1) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score […]

Winning is fun. The Reds (2-5) should try that more often, huh? After a rough first week of the season, the club finally broke through against the Pirates (6-2) last night to erase the taste of a particularly ugly loss on Friday. They’ll try to turn it into a winning streak today as they wrap […]
