A Google image search for "Reds Chris Denorfia" turns up almost as little as a search for "Denorfia Reds jersey." This image via Crinkly Wrappers.The couple series the Reds have had against the Padres recently have had me thinking about Chris Denorfia. These days, Denorfia is a backup outfielder for the Padres, but he came up with the Reds, and I was always very fond of the guy. The Reds traded him to the A’s for 2 players to be named later in 2007. At that time he was in the middle of an injury that had him out for the year, making it a most stupid time to trade him, like selling Apple stock before Steve Jobs returned in 1996. Stupider, actually, because Denorfia was always expected to return; all the MBAs in the world wouldn’t have seen that Jobs thing coming at the time he left. I was pretty mad about the trade at the time, and people said I was overreacting, but time has proven me right. The two PTBNLs were Marcus McBeth and Ben Jukich. If you don’t know who ...

Report: Reds ink 20-year-old outfielder from Cuba

The move by the Reds to sign Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman in January 2010 has proved to be a good one. Now, it appears as though the Reds are dipping into Cuba for baseball talent once again. Baseball America reports that Cincinnati has inked 20-year-old outfielder Raydel Medina for $400,000. A source close to the deal says the signing is still awaiting approval from the...

Video: Watch Tony Cingrani mow down Brewers en route to sixth victory

Your browser does not support iframes. The Reds extended their winning streak to five Thursday with a 2-1 triumph over host Milwaukee at a big reason for that has to do with the stellar outing by rookie Tony Cingrani. The southpaw improved to 6-2 on the campaign by twirling 6.1 innings of 4-hit and 1-run baseball. His only mistake came on a second inning pitch to Khris Davis...

Analyzing the Quentin Addition, Part I: The Trade

It’s probably a bit early to objectively assess the performance of Friars GM Josh Byrnes to this point in his tenure. After all, he didn’t join the franchise until December of 2010 and wasn’t named the club’s GM until nearly a year afterwards. To be fair Byrnes probably deserves another year or two before he can be judged. That being said, it’s not too early to grade one...

Ryan Hanigan Takes A Foul Ball To The Cubes, Men Everywhere Cringe

If you ever questioned why baseball players wear cups, yesterday is a good indicator. LaTroy Hawkins wasn’t the first guy to take a foul ball right to the pocket rocket last night. Nope, that distinction belongs to Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan versus the Chicago Cubs. On a 2-1 pitch, Cubs catcher Wellington Castillo, with no regard for his position mate’s peas and carrot, achieved...

Searching for answers regarding future Reds pitching

by: Izsak Rapp Staff Writer What's going to happen if Bronson Arroyo leaves next season? The obvious answer is Tony Cingrani. The southpaw has been absolutely lights out. Not many teams can drop a still developing player onto their big league club in place of their ace and not miss a beat. I don't know any other minor leaguers who would post a sub-3 ERA with around...

Coping With Bad Baserunning

The Padres ended up losing to Colorado 4-2 yesterday.  They had baserunners, got some timely hits for once, but couldn’t break on top.  One particularly painful sequence occurred in the top of the sixth inning, when singles by Jedd Gyorko and Jesus Guzman placed runners on the corners and no one out.  Logan Forsythe strode to the plate. Logan reached for a outside 2-2 pitch...

“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” – Delving into fantasy baseball ‘disappointments’: Joey Votto

Over the next few days I’ll be taking a look at guys that are MLB superstars, franchise players and all-around studs. All 30 teams in the MLB would take these guys in a heartbeat, yet their owners in standard format fantasy leagues are likely left disappointed this season by what was once a no-doubt sure pick. We’ll leave out guys that have been riddled with injuries, and focus...

Reds top Cubs for sixth win in seven games

The Reds played long enough Tuesday night to allow the Chicago Cubs to self-destruct. A couple of walks a wild pitch and an error loaded the bases for Shin-Soo Choo in the top of the 11th inning. Choo delivered a two-run single to lift the Reds to a 6-4 11-inning win over the Cubs before a few stranglers from the crowd of 33286 at Wrigley Field. Choo was 0-for-4 on the night and...

Daily Friar 8.13.13

The Padres lost a laugher last night. The game quickly got out of hand as Edinson Volquez couldn’t pitch yet again in Coors Field. This will be good to know for the Rockies once Volquez becomes a free agent. He gave up five early runs and that was enough for the Rockies to win. He left the game in the fifth inning after allowing eight runs, all of them earned. ON SALE NOW! Things...
