[In the days leading up to Opening Day, we’ll be previewing The State Of The Reds at every single position on the field. Today, we begin with a look at perhaps the most important defensive position: shortstop] Coming out of the 2017 season, and throughout most of this past offseason, the Shortstop position was seen […]

1. Zack Cozart is, in fact, still a Red. 2.  If you try to entertain the 13-year-old by grabbing a playground ball from the display box and bouncing it off his head, it won’t work. 3. Launching a conversation about how Cincinnatians add an apostrophe s, as in “Kroger’s”, after all major establishments and Catholic parishes […]

Tonight’s game has a bit more intrigue than might normally be expected for loyal fans of a last-place team which has lost 11 of its last 12 games. After weeks of watching a seemingly endless parade of starting pitchers who have little business on this or any major league team, a wave of change hopefully […]

Tonight is game 2 of the Reds 3 game series with the Brewers in Milwaukee. The Reds need to clear their heads, take a deep breath and get back  in the saddle after last night’s 11-7 stomping administered by the Brewers.  The Brewers have scored 35 run against the Reds in 5 games. It would […]

With the Pirates swept right out of town, your National League Central–no, your National League–no, your MAJOR LEAGUE LEADING Cincinnati Reds take on the St. Louis Cardinals (small sample sizes are fun, no?). Tonight’s game should be the first game of the season that isn’t delayed so that can be taken as a good omen […]

The Reds are rumored to be pursuing some hitters this off season and said to have interest in a LF for the middle of the order and possibly a SS with a better bat. Some of the recent discussions here have had several references to where a player fits best in the batting order or […]

Just another game, right? It appears as if Dusty has finally constructed a lineup we can at least live with for this important series.  Cozart batting 8th, Mesoraco starting at catcher, A-team guys in there.  Now the question is can they hit enough to score runs and can Mike Leake do a better job against […]

Who is this guy managing the Reds? Check out today’s lineup: 1. Heisey LF 2. Choo CF 3. Votto 1B 4. Phillips 2B 5. Bruce RF 6. Frazier 3B 7. Cozart SS 8. Miller C 9. Bailey P A win today by the Reds would ensure at least a split in this series which I […]

BOMBS AWAY!!!! The Reds hit some absolute bombs last night, especially those off the bat of Cozart, Frazier, and Bruce.  It was nice to see some big blasts and some outstanding pitching turned in last night by Leake, LeCure, Cingrani, and Chapman.  I think the Reds are setting up for a big series here with […]

The Reds will enter tonight’s regularly scheduled contest with either a 2-game winning streak to keep intact or a 1-game losing streak to try and snap.  The Reds and Phillies will resume last night’s scoreless affair at 5:30 with Zach Cozart at the plate and Joey Votto waiting in the on-deck circle.  After Votto hits […]
