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?

Not much changed for the Reds over the off-season with the exception of Cincy trading for Shin-Soo Choo. He'll likely be a one-year rental, but Choo solves one of the Reds' biggest weaknesses which is having someone who is not an out machine in the leadoff spot. The Reds already had a ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
It's day six of our Reds predictions. Most players are going to give you what they're going to give you and you can expect it like clockwork. For example, Joey Votto is going to be Joey Votto. He's going to hit for average, get on base, and drive in runs because that's what Joey Votto's do. However, every manager hopes to hit the jackpot with one or two players...
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...
Not Ludwick hitting the 3-run bomb; just him batting sometime last September.Last Game
The Reds went to town on Team Canada last night, walloping them 2-12.
Mat Latos started for the Reds and gave Team Canada its two runs. After his 3 innings, though, the bullpen was in the groove. The Reds struck out 14.
Ryan Ludwick hit a 3-run home run in the second inning, and Miguel Olivo did...
Continuing from the Reds season preview earlier today...
Are the Reds making the right decision moving Aroldis Chapman to the rotation?
Two of the biggest factors that contributed to the Reds' 2012 success was that they had a solid, stable rotation and arguably the best bullpen in baseball. Considering that Cincinnati is returning almost the exact same pitching staff...
This week marks the third installment of the Redlegs Review round table. In this edition, RR staffers Jimmi Adair (@Redlegs_Review), Scott Eddy (@scotte97), Jesse Welte (@RedlegsWriter), Dan Howard (@DaHermit16), Jon Davis (@I_Bleed_RedsRed), and Matt Bollmann (@RedlegsMatt) discuss four recent topics up for debate.
These topics include the prospects of Todd Frazier playing...
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...
Happy weekend, folks. Here are some Reds news and notes for your weekend.
+ ESPN.com's Jim Bowden writes about possible turmoil brewing in Reds camp over how to effectively use Aroldis Chapman. According to Bowden, Dusty Baker and most of the players allegedly want Chapman to remain the closer. GM Walt Jocketty and pitching coach Bryan Price think Chapman is better served...
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...
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...
Cesar Izturis boosted his chance to win a utility job on the Cincinnati Reds, hitting a sixth inning home run off Travis Webb and an eighth-inning RBI single against Johnny Hellweg in the Cincinnati Reds' 6-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
Logan Schafer drove in two runs with a single and a double and Donnie Murphy hit three hits, including a double.
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.
