Here we are on day four of our eight-part series, predicting the Reds season. Today, we will take a look at players who have a chance to show the greatest improvement from 2012. It was not an easy decision, but the votes came in from the Redlegs Review staff and a decision was made, sort of. It was a tie on this one.
The Most Improved Reds Players in 2013 will be...
@RedlegsWriter: To me, it's got to be Mesoraco. He had a very underwhelming year in 2012, playing in just 54 games while posting a .212 average to go with five home runs and 14 RBI. The hope was that Mesoraco would begin the transition to become the full time catcher, taking the reigns from Ryan Hanigan, but it was not meant to be. In fact, by the end of the season, he wasn't even playing for the Reds. He appeared in his last game for the big league club on September 10th and was left off the playoff roster in favor of the veteran Dioner Navarro. That must have been rather disapp...

The Reds enjoyed a rare off day on Thursday after crushing Team Canada by a tally of 12-2 Wednesday night. The win effectively snapped a seven-game losing skid for Dusty Baker's bunch.
Well, not really because the game doesn't officially count on their spring training record. However, do any of these games really matter at all? I'll answer that with another question...
One of the challenges when it comes to ranking players by position in fantasy baseball is trying to determine which player is going to have that breakout season and return a profit to your auction buy or draft pick. When reviewing the list of third basemen for the 2013 season, my pick to break out is Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds.
Frazier took over at third base for the Reds...
You know the usual suspects on the Reds: Votto, Chapman, Phillips, Latos, Bruce, Choo, and so on and so forth. None of them are really going to be an x-factor this year, because everyone is counting on them to be a huge part of the team. So when looking for someone a bit under the radar to make an impact on such a star-studded team, you've got to think about more than the usual...
The Reds haven't won a baseball game in a week, and two of their biggest stars (Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips) are currently on leave due to the World Baseball Classic, but have no fear, I have some great nuggets to share with you. Dive on in.
+ Danny Knobler of CBS Sports says the Reds are making two bold moves by sliding Aroldis Chapman into the bullpen and Shin-Soo...
Ryan Ludwick and Miguel Olivo hit three-run homers Wednesday night and the Cincinnati Reds piled up 18 hits for a 12-2 victory over Canada's team in the World Baseball Classic.
The Canadians managed only four hits in a tuneup for their opening WBC game on Saturday. Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who is on Canada's team, didn't play.
Mark Hardy, who pitched for Double...

The 2012 Reds rebounded back into a the second-best record in baseball and a post-season berth. Can they maintain that same level of success or are they poised for another big drop off?

We've reached the end of our NL Central preview week, and today, we'll be looking at the defending division champions: the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds had an awesome season in 2012 behind a rock solid starting rotation, a dominant bullpen, and one of the best all-around players in baseball in Joey Votto. This offseason, the Reds made some nice tweaks going forth, and will look...

Cincinnati’s has one of the easier opening day rosters to predict after returning most of their players from a 97-win season. Dusty Baker’s management style utilizes all 25 of the active roster spots and there still is some competition for utility infield and bullpen jobs as the season approaches.
