CINCINNATI (May 9, 2012) — The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum’s 2012 Big Red Machine bobblehead series, presented by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, continues in May with the release of the George Foster bobblehead, the second in the six bobblehead collection.
The George Foster bobbleheads are free with full-price paid admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in May while supplies last.
There is a strict limit of one bobblehead per ticket purchaser per day and the limited number of bobbleheads available for public distribution are expected to will go quickly.
George Foster was one of the most feared sluggers of his era, belting a club-record 52 home runs in his 1977 Most Valuable Player season and pacing the National League in RBI each season from 1976-1978. Inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2003, Foster ranks fifth on the franchise’s all-time home run list.
The best way to ensure a bobblehead is ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Billy Hamilton and Tony Cingrani of the Bakersfield Blaze were named the Reds Minor League Player and Pitcher of the month of April. Double-A starter J.C. Sulbaran was named the Southern League Pitcher of the week. His teammate, closer Donnie Joseph finally gave up a run, but his ERA still stands at a miniscule 0.56. To check last week's review, go here. Here's the rest...
Bailey just didn't bring his 'A' game this time around
You can't win 'em all, right? That's precisely what the Reds (15-14) must be thinking after falling to the Brewers (13-17), 8-3, on Tuesday. Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo (2-3) muffled the Cincinnati offense over his six, fine innings of work. Meanwhile, his counterpart Homer Bailey was less...
Johnny Cueto is among several
Cincy players who are heating up in May
The month of April can be deceiving in many ways as it relates to the performance of MLBers. Players can get off to hot starts only to fizzle out in the remaining five months of the season. Or on the other hand, a player may also labor through a rough April only to turn it on as the weather gets warmer...
Who needs an Ace? Not the Reds, they already have one.
Reds kept their series win streak alive in dramatic fashion, perhaps a bit too
dramatic, taking two of three in Milwaukee after a 2-1 victory over the Brewers
on Wednesday afternoon. It was more than just any victory, though, as this one
felt a little bit bigger. All the info after the break…

In a minor Cincinnati Reds historical item, The Hardball Times notes that it was 10,000 days ago today that Marge Schott became the majority owner of the Reds.
It was a tumultuous and, ultimately, mostly embarrassing time in the Reds’ history. Yes, they won the 1990 World Series, but that may have been despite Schott, given her reluctance to hire scouts and black … [visit site to read more]

The Reds welcome the Washington Nationals to town for a
three-game set at GABP. Cincinnati is looking for a bit of a revenge after
losing three out of four in the nation’s capital last month which came at a low
point of the early season, sending many fans running for the cliff. Since,
though, the Reds have won four out of five series, including four straight, not...
Every now and then I'll find myself perusing around YouTube for some good, Reds-related video I can post on the blog. And this is what I happened to find in my latest search.
Seen here is prime NL Rookie of the Year candidate Zack Cozart discussing his road to recovery from Tommy John surgery. This video clip was obviously produced and aired prior to the start...
[Cincinnati.com] [Redleg Nation] [Brewers Mission 162]
Things started going badly in this one–again because of Homer Bailey’s inconsistencies.
He came out with 96 MPH stuff, some of the best velocity I’ve seen him have a in a long time and after retiring what seemed like the first two hitters of the game with ease, he came unraveled a little bit. He loaded the...
With the off day and the Reds seemingly on a roll I thought I would take a post to look at how the Reds are faring so far this season.
First, the Reds have arguably the best pitcher in Baseball at the top of their rotation. With a 1.12 ERA, Cueto is the second best staring pitcher in baseball (based on ERA alone.) He has 4 wins compared to the 0 wins Dempster (1.02 ERA) has. Cueto...
