Well well well, last week stunk for Reds fans. After winning 6 straight, the Reds followed that up by losing 5 of their next 6 games, both against teams with losing records. However it was great to see Mat Latos bounce back tonight against the Brew Crew.
In this week’s show:
Mat Latos strikes out a career high 13 against the Brewers
What’s wrong with Rolen, Ludwick, Chapman
We debated whether or not “The Mayor” Sean Casey deserved to be elected to the Reds HoF.
We look ahead to next week’s West Coast swing as the Reds get set for 11 games vs the Giants, Dodgers and Padres leading up to the All-Star break.

Joey Votto is clearly running away with the NL’s first base All Star position. So much so, that I think it’s easy to lose perspective. Here’s a couple facts to help increase the resolution on this number:
Since last week’s tally, Votto has received over 1.3 million votes. The second-place vote getter has only 1.5 million votes for the entirety of the voting.
Votto has about...
CINCINNATI If one Cincinnati Reds fan wants to start an argument with another Cincinnati Reds fan, all one need do is say two words: "Drew Stubbs."
And the other fan will say, "Them's fightin' words."
Drew Stubbs is a buzzword in Reds Country and there is little middle ground one is either for him or against him. Yay or nay. Thumbs up or thumbs down...
The going has been tough lately for no. 54
"What goes around comes around." "You reap what you sew." "You get what you deserve."
These are all ways to express a belief held by many that karma really does exist. Good deeds and actions breed future good, while bad ones breed, well you know the rest.
Given the adversity that Aroldis Chapman...

Kyle Lotzkar Curveball
While I have done these kinds of articles in the past, from here on out I plan to have one every Monday for a different player. Today I will be looking at Kyle Lotzkar. He has split his time between Bakersfield and Pensacola this year with these stats:
Aroldis Chapman’s ninth save of the season might have been the most controversial – because of something he did after it was over.
Once the Cincinnati Reds closer struck out Martin Maldonado to clinch a 4-3 victory over Milwaukee Tuesday night, Chapman took two somersaults toward catcher Ryan Hanigan in an apparent celebration.
The Reds reacted with concern – that Chapman might...
Dr. Henry Heimlich presented Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier with a life-saving award on Tuesday before a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Frazier used the Heimlich maneuver on a choking restaurant customer during a series in Pittsburgh in late May. Heimlich, who moved to Cincinnati in the 1960s, went on the field and gave Frazier a certificate and a plaque for saving...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds activated center fielder Drew Stubbs from the disabled list before the opening game of a series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, restoring their everyday lineup to full strength. Stubbs went on the DL June 15 after pulling muscles in his left side during a swing. He played a three-game rehab stint at Class-A Dayton over the weekend without problem...

The Reds lost today to the Minnesota Twins 4-3. The Reds just came off a three game sweep in Cleveland and now Reds fans are asking, “Could the Reds have been beaten by a worse team than the Twins”? Well, the answer to that question is yes, the Reds could have been beaten by the Cubs who have the worst record in the Major Leagues. The Reds were beat by a team that is bad, however...
Bronson Arroyo took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on
Tuesday night before giving up a three-run lead, but Drew Stubbs
led off the bottom half with a homer, sending the Cincinnati Reds
to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Here is a post that shows Aroldis Chapman doing two celebratory somersaults toward home plate after recording the final out of the game. Predictably, Dusty Baker gave a "we don't play that way" quote, and speculation abounds: will Joey Votto get a pitch in his ribs in retaliation? Will the Reds fine Chapman? How many absurd columnists will write screeds about how Chapman...
With the team's first two batters on at the start of Monday's opener with the NL Central-leading Cincinnati Reds, the Milwaukee Brewers' offense seemed to be on the brink of bouncing back from its recent drought.
But as the heart of the Brewers order continued to go down one by one at the hands of Reds' pitcher Mat Latos -- Ryan Braun by strikeout, Aramis Ramirez...
