Todd Frazier is one of the biggest sleepers of the 2013 Fantasy Baseball season. Playing in a lineup that features Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and now Shin-Soo Choo, Frazier will have plenty of RBI opportunities. Scott Rolen is no longer standing in the way of the 27 year old and the ABs will finally there for Frazier. His career numbers have shown us what he can do with a full season and 30 doubles, 6 triples, 25 home runs and 82 RBI from a guy being drafted between 175-200 overall is unbelievable. I would be very comfortable with Frazier as my starting 3B.Pedro Alvarez is no entering his 4th big league season. As the #2 overall pick, he has not impressed. Last year he did manage to hit 30 home runs but hit just .244 and struck out 180 times. He does hit in the middle of the lineup, but the Pirates struggle to score runs and there isn't much protection for Alvarez. I wouldn't mind having Alvarez as a backup player, but I am not sure I can live with him playing every...

The Cincinnati Reds cut 5 more players from their roster over the weekend, getting their total roster count down to 39.
Optioned to Triple-A Louisville were right-handed pitchers Pedro Villarreal and Curtis Partch, infielder Henry Rodriguez and first baseman Neftali Soto. Outfielder/first baseman Donald Lutz was optioned to Double-A Pensacola.
Lutz, Rodriguez, and Soto all impressed...
If it seems like you’ve read dozens of articles about Aroldis Chapman potentially being a starting pitcher over the years, it’s only because you’ve missed hundreds more. This is an old topic, as is usually the case with relievers who appear to have the potential for more. The Reds invested a lot in Chapman when they first signed him, and as of 2012 he’s mastered the bullpen...
After being eliminated by Puerto Rico on Friday, the Americans are now 0-for-3 in their bid to win the World Baseball Classic. In fact, the United States has failed to finish any better than fourth place in the tournament, which is a major disappointment to say the least.
Now, Reds skipper Dusty Baker wants to play a key role in changing that for a future Classic.
Great news, folks!

About a month and a half ago, I talked about the situation involving the Reds moving Aroldis Chapman to the Cincinnati rotation. I felt the flame-throwing left-hander should have stayed as the team’s closer, but it was obvious what the organization’s decision was last winter, as they re-signed Jonathan Broxton to a three-year/$21 million deal. However, as we’re just two short...
Full disclosure: I had this idea written out a week ago for 2013 bold predictions before Aroldis Chapman stated that he would prefer to be a closer.
Aroldis Chapman throws the baseball 100 mph. That’s what he does best. His fastball is utterly dominant. He could certainly be a great starter. The problem with Chapman is that his secondary pitches – the change up...
If you want me to be 100% honest, I thought it was the Reds year last year. I truly thought after they won the first two games of the NLDS in San Francisco that this team was headed to the World Series. The Reds were going to do one better than my prediction I made before the season of just reaching the NLCS; they were actually going to win the NL pennant and give themselves a shot...
Aroldis Chapman rebounded from a first-inning jam in his fourth appearance and second start of spring training, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 7-6 on Saturday in a split squad game for both clubs.
The Reds continue to consider whether to make the left-hander the team's fifth starter or keep him in the closer role. Chapman, who said after his outing...
