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 […]

Lots of interesting decisions are going to be made today with respect to the composition of Cincinnati’s 40-man roster: The deadline to protect players on the 40-man roster is Friday. Those eligible for the Rule 5 Draft include anyone not on the 40-man roster who was signed as an 18-year-old in 2012, or at 19 […]

The Reds aren’t going to make any big splashes in free agency during the offseason, but it sounds like we shouldn’t expect them to be as quiet as they were last winter, either. After taking the reigns from Walt Jocketty after the 2016 regular season concluded, general manager Dick Williams has been candid about the […]

Doug Gray has all the details, but twenty Reds minor leaguers elected to file for minor league free agency today. Among them were a few guys who have gotten some time in the big leagues with the Reds, such as Kyle Waldrop and Donald Lutz. To be eligible for minor league free agency, a player […]

I told you yesterday, after a series of moves by the Cincinnati Reds, that there would be more to come. Today we learn the following: Reds outright to Louisville RHP Caleb Cotham, IF/OF Hernan Iribarren, OF Yorman Rodriguez. RHP Abel De Los Santos was claimed by Angels. — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) October 28, 2016 Nothing […]

The Reds offense was surprisingly good in the second half of 2016. The Reds as a team ranked 8th in the MLB in wRC+ (100), and were 9th in runs scored (340). The Reds will hope that will carry over in 2017. I thought that I would create a handy depth chart for the Reds […]

We’ve got about 4 weeks left in the Minor League season and 3 weeks until the Major League rosters can expand for September call ups.  Hopefully service time issues won’t affect who we’ll get to see called up.  Getting to see some of these prospects we’ve been hearing and reading about is about all we […]

The Reds come out of the All Star Break still mired in rebuild limbo on the offensive side of the board.  Hopefully they will be able to make some deals to move veteran players to open up spots for the likes of Jose Peraza, Scott Schebler, and Jesse Winker.  Let’s check in on the action […]

Adam Duvall has started in left field for the Reds in 17 of their 25 games. It’s safe to refer to him as their every day left fielder. To win that job, Duvall had to beat out Scott Schebler and maybe Yorman Rodriguez, Tyler Holt and Jake Cave. How should the Reds front office and Reds fans […]
