ESPN just finished running a series this week called the "Hall of 100" in which they attempted to accurately rank the top 100 players to ever play the game of baseball. The list was compiled without regard to scandals, conventional wisdom, or bias. The only thing they considered was the actual performance on the field. Refreshing, eh?
Here are the former Reds players...

One day, Todd Frazier will look back at 2012 and remember it as one of the most memorable years of his life.
In '12, the 26-year old busted onto the Major League scene out of virtually nowhere to finish third in National League Rookie of the Year voting. Along the way he managed to save a man from choking to death, belted a home run without using his...

Before giving my thoughts on everything the Reds have done in the last couple days, it was important for me to really think what the telos of the organization was.
I could come up with just one answer.
Every step they took was not to cut cost (as a lot of teams do), it was not to fill holes in the lineup with toothpaste (though I heard...

Scott Rolen seemed to have one foot out the door by the end of the 2012 season. Injuries had limited him to the point of considering retirement. Despite the potential that Rolen my retire, the Cincinnati Reds kept an open line of communication. That may have paid off as Rolen is considering a return for the 2013 season. According to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, Rolen may want to...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds and free-agent infielder Jack Hannahan have finalized a two-year contract, giving the team added depth at third base.
The 32-year old, reunited with former Cleveland teammate Shin-Soo Choo, hit .244 for the Indians last season with 16 doubles, four homers and 29 RBIs in 105 games. His playing time was limited by a minor back injury.
In six big...
Since we're currently nestled in between that terrible period between last season and next, and since there isn't much else to write about that is Reds-related, I've decided to put together a list of the best Reds players from the 1990's. I have compiled a full, 25-man roster in which I feel to be the best collection of Cincinnati players to wear the red and white...
The father of a Cincinnati Reds draft pick was killed in a one-vehicle accident Saturday morning in Texas and 18-year-old prospect Mason Felt was seriously injured. Felt, who was selected in June in the fifth round in the amateur baseball draft as the 172nd overall pick, was driving on Interstate 10 west of Ozona, Texas, when his 2004 Ford F-150 truck veered off the road and across...

Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce, Mat Latos and others send their best holiday wishes to Reds Nation in this video clip. The guys certainly delivered a memorable season in 2012. Let's hope for more of the same and better in 2013!
The Reds and GM Walt Jocketty have been very active this offseason capped off by the deal to bring in leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo from the Indians. One day later it was announced that another Indian, free agent infielder Jack Hannahan, will join the Reds for 2013. Cincinnati had a need to add infield depth after the completion of the contracts with veterans Cario, Valdez, and Rolen.
When the year started the Reds didn’t have Jesse Winker in the system. He was still in high school and had yet to be drafted. The Reds drafted him in June as a supplemental first round pick and sent the 18-year-old to the Pioneer League to play with the Billings Mustangs despite the league being a more advanced, mostly college filled league.
The season began in the middle of June...

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim inked their rival's, the Texas Rangers, outfielder Josh Hamilton to a five year, $125 million contract.
Yes, that is $25 million a year.
Hamilton was traded by the Reds...
