Are the Reds' Offseason Moves Enough?

Is the additon of Ryan Madson, among others, enough to dub the Reds' division favorites? Dan Syzmborski wrote a very intriguing column recently implying that the Reds still need to make another big offseason move to be considered the "true division favorites" (it's an ESPN Insider piece, so if you want to view it in its entirety you must subscribe). Nonetheless...

Athletics sign Jonny Gomes

The Oakland Athletics have signed Jonny Gomes to a one-year deal worth around $1.1mm, Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported the deal first). Gomes hit .209 last season with 14 home runs in 372 plate appearances for the Reds and Nationals. Gomes could be used as a platoon player as he has a career .311 avg against left handed pitchers...

Reds announce tryouts for the “John Morrell Reds Rally Pack”

I was going to post about the fact that the Reds avoided arbitration by coming to agreements with Homer Bailey, Bill Bray, and Paul Janish tonight. That is, I was until I went to Reds.com and came upon this press release calling for applications to be a Reds Rally Pack rallier. CINCINNATI (Jan. 17, 2012) – The John Morrell Reds Rally Pack entertainment squad is looking for a few...

Athletics, Jonny Gomes Nearing Deal

The A's are nearing a deal with free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. A deal with the ACES client could be completed by Monday. Conor Jackson and Johnny Damon were also considerations for the A's, who were looking for an outfielder capable of hitting left-handers, according to Slusser. GM Billy Beane has traded for...

Catching Up on MINOR Details: Dayton

If one were to pick which minor league team of the Reds had the best 2011, it would have to be the Single-A affiliate Dayton Dragons. Under manager Delino DeShields (and I love that he's their manager and I don't know why), they finished 83-57, good enough to finish first and win their third division title, and advanced to the quarterfinals of the playoffs. They could...

Catching up on MINOR Details: Billings

Last but not least (with apologies to the AZL Reds) we have the Rookie League Billings Mustangs. They finished 44-32 for the best record overall in the Pioneer League North, but missed out on the playoffs by just one game, because they did not have the best record in either half of the season. They did take it all the way to the last day though. The big news for Billings is that...

The Oakland A's Have Become A Disaster

The Oakland Athletics are currently in talks with free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes. If they sign Gomes, I think will have officially hopped off the Billy Beane bandwagon, because the team's offense right now is an absolute horror show. Assuming Gomes is in the fold, Beane has four outfielders to play the corners alongside Coco Crisp: Gomes, Collin Cowgill, Josh Reddick, and...

Ludwick ready to contribute for a contender

Outfielder Ryan Ludwick might have been born in Florida, attended high school and college in Las Vegas and resides in Texas, but he's got Cincinnati in his blood.

Closer Ryan Madson finalizes $8.5M, 1-year deal with Reds

CINCINNATI - Free-agent closer Ryan Madson and the Cincinnati Reds have finalized their $8.5 million, one-year...

ESPN Releases Sunday Night Baseball Schedule

Yesterday ESPN released their Sunday Night Baseball telecast schedule for the first half of the season. The Cincinnati Reds will host a mid-July contest at Great American Ballpark to give fans that rare Sunday game under the lights. It seems as a whole ESPN tried to buck the typical ways of throwing the Yankees, Red Sox, or Cubs on every Sunday Night. This schedule features good...

Madson's deal with Reds finalized

The Cincinnati Reds officially signed right- hander Ryan Madson to a one-year contract Friday with a mutual option for 2013.
