2013 Reds’ Record Prediction, Roster, Lineup, Etc.

  The Cincinnati Reds won a whopping 97 games last year and expectations are even higher entering the 2013 season. While I have no doubt the Reds are a better team, I don’t think they’ll reach their win total of last season. A lot went right for them during the 2012 regular season when they […]

Reaction To Chapman Decision

  Aroldis Chapman turned in one of the best seasons by a closer in MLB history last season when he saved 38 games (in 43 opportunities) struck out an amazing 122 batters in 71.2 innings, had an ERA of just 1.51 and a WHIP of merely 0.81. Interestingly, the only season by a closer since […]

Top-20 Reds Prospects

With the 2013 Major League Baseball season nearly upon us, let's take a look at one man's opinion on who the top-20 prospects in the Cincinnati Reds organization are and why. Note: prospect means they're still considered a rookie by MLB standards or are still in the minors. Top 20 Reds Prospects 1.      Billy Hamilton […]

Choo Deal Official

According to multiple media outlets, the deal sending Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald to the Cincinnati Reds for Didi Gregorius and Drew Stubbs is now official. We won’t know for sure for a long time, but this appears to be a coup for Reds general manager Walt Jocketty, who has been very active early this […]

Reds On Verge Of Landing Choo

The Reds are on the verge of a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians that would bring outfielder Shin-soo Choo and utility infielder Jason Donald to Cincinnati in exchange for CF Drew Stubbs and shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius. Choo will be a free agent after the 2013 season and will make roughly $7.5 million via […]

Putting A Wrap On Reds’ Season; Look Ahead

If you’re a Reds fan, that burn is going to stay with you for quite a while – perhaps until Opening Day. The Reds not only had the Giants on the brink of elimination in the NLDS, Cincinnati was legitimately a good team this year that had a chance to win the World Series. This […]

Reds To Face Giants In First Round Of Playoffs

The Cincinnati Reds will play the San Francisco Giants in the 2012 National League Divisional Series. Since nothing comes easy in the playoffs, I don’t mind the matchup for the Reds. The Giants are a good team, but they have some things working against them — such as the shocking decline of pitcher Tim Lincecum […]

Bailey Throws 15th No-No In Reds History

Boy was I wrong about Homer Bailey. I didn’t think he was horrible, but I never thought he’d put it together. I thought he was hard-headed and immature. And maybe he was at one point. But he’s turned himself into a mature, humble young man. And more-importantly for the Cincinnati Reds, he’s developed into one […]

Reds Take Central Crown

With their 6-0 blanking of the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers in front of a sold-out Great American BallPark crowd on Saturday, the Cincinnati Reds clinched the 2012 NL Central Division championship. It marked the second time in three years that the five-time world champs have accomplished the feat, but this year’s team is so much […]

Reds First 2012 Team To Clinch Playoff Bid

The Cincinnati Reds became the first team in Major League Baseball this season to clinch a spot in the playoffs on Thursday. There are 12 games remaining in the season, but the Reds, at 91-59, have at least a wildcard birth wrapped up. And they can capture the NL Central Division championship for the second […]

Hamilton Sets Steals Record

Billy Hamilton of the Cincinnati Reds’ Double-A affiliate has racked up 147 stolen bases on the season, eclipsing Vince Coleman’s professional record of 145. Coleman was also a minor-leaguer at the time and set his mark in 1983. Hamilton accomplished the feat on Tuesday when he swiped four bags for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Hamilton, […]

Reds Trade For Broxton; Surge To 23 Over .500

The Cincinnati Reds did make a relatively big move hours before the trade deadline on Tuesday – it just wasn’t the kind of move anyone predicted. Rather than improving their situation in centerfield and at the leadoff spot in the batting order by trading for a player like Shane Victorino or Denard Span, the Reds […]

Reds Rockin’ 60-40 Mark After 100 Games

With 100 games in the books of the 2012 season, the Cincinnati Reds are 60-40. That’s tied for the best record in all of Major League Baseball along with the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals. Just like you anticipated, right? Hey, most Reds fans had high expectations entering this season, but no one could […]

Trade Upcoming For Reds?

As the Cincinnati Reds approach the All-Star break, they find themselves embedded in a three-team race for the National League Central championship. One game past the midpoint of the season, the surprising Pittsburgh Pirates are in first place at 46-37, the Reds are second at 45-38 (one game back) and the defending World Series champions, […]

Reds Draft Prep Pitcher Travieso In First Round

The Cincinnati Reds took high school pitcher Nick Travieso with their first-round selection (No. 14 overall) in the 2012 MLB draft. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Travieso is a right-hander whose fastball has been clocked as high as 99 MPH, and regularly sits in the 92-95 range. “I’ve hit it (99) a few times, not just once,” […]
