Chapman shines as relief pitcher in Reds' win

CINCINNATI There are those in Cincinnati Reds country who howled, kicked and screamed when they heard that Aroldis Chapman was plopped into the bullpen for the start of the 2012 season. They argue that the team paid 30 milllion U.S. for the Cuban-born lefthander and 30 milllion U.S. should be the salary of a starter, not a bullpen guy who may or may not pitch on a given day or...

McCoy: Just call him Pal Joey

If you are a Cincinnati Reds fan, just call him Pal Joey, because Joey Votto is going to be your friendly first baseman for the next 12 years. His 10-year contract extension, tacked on to the two years for which he is already signed, puts him in a Reds uniform through 2023. That's a long, long time, even in dog years, and when the contract expires he will be 40 years old. ...

Marlins try for season's first win against Reds

Opening Day: Cincinnati's greatest holiday

by: Josh Bethel Staff Writer When people talk about baseball, they talk fondly about history. Hell, baseball is a game who's foundation relies on history more than any other sport. Football today barely resembles the same game it did even 60 years ago and people seem to forget that the three point line didn't exist until 1979. Meanwhile, baseball has hardly changed...

ESPN 'experts' predict 2012 season

By a show of hands, how many of you predicted the Cardinals' epic World Series run last season? Or that the Reds would follow a division title campaign with a losing record in the next?

On Paper, Upset Potential, Don’t Bother
