St. Louis Sports 360:
(Something about trade deadline, next week being a big determiner) Reds: Votto who? Joey Votto’s knee injury was supposed to be a perfect opportunity for the Reds main competitors for the National League Central crown — St. Louis and Pittsburgh — to gain ground and pass the Reds before the All-Star first baseman returned in [...]

Rafael Furcal won the game against the Dodgers yesterday with a walk-off hit against Jamey Wright, and in the celebration, Kyle Lohse decided it would be a swell time to turn Skip Schumaker‘s privates into his personal bowling ball
Homer Bailey put in another excellent performance, but was denied his fifth win of the season by a blown save at the hands of Logan Ondrusek. Despite some questionable defense (the Reds had 4 errors in this game), they did come back to win the game and sweep the series at the last possible moment. Final score: 5-3.
The Reds have an off-day today. They’re currently...

CHICAGO -- The Oakland Athletics felt enough of Brian Fuentes that they decided they'd rather pay him the remaining portion of his 5 million salary to pitch for someone else.
And the Cardinals hope to take full advantage of it.
Looking to repair a struggling bullpen, the Cardinals took a chance on the veteran left-hander and added him to the big league roster on Wednesday following...

With 100 games in the books of the 2012 season, the Cincinnati Reds are 60-40. That’s tied for the best record in all of Major League Baseball along with the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals.

This is not a list of which prospects are the best but a list of the value that other teams have for them. So keep that in mind before you start complaining that player A is much...
Anyone who has spent time following the Reds since 2010 knows the immense frustration and hopelessness that Drew Stubbs has provided us with. The roller coaster ride really settled this year and the thought was no longer about Stubbs not reaching the supposed superstardom some scouts saw possible when he was drafted in the 1st round out of Texas.
Reds fans simply wondered if this...
Hot News for 3B David Freese
Earlier this month the Reds position in first place was threatened when slugger Joey Votto went on the DL for knee surgery. Last night's win at Colorado extended a winning streak to nine games before they go for a third consecutive series sweep Sunday. Over that time their runs/game have increased 25% as multiple players in the lineup have stepped up to pick up the slack from his absence.
DENVER (AP) -- Coors Field has given Bronson Arroyo fits in his career, but the right-hander finally got the better of the place for one night.
Arroyo pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Ryan Ludwick scored twice and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Colorado Rockies 3-0 Friday night for their eighth straight victory.
Ludwick, Scott Rolen and Ryan Hanigan had two hits apiece...
Reds fans in Columbus and Lima will need to get a little creative to see Saturday’s game on t.v. this week. Again, the Reds game conflicts with the Columbus Crew soccer game (not to be confused with The Cutting Crew, which was over in 1993), and the soccer will get the primary FOX Sports Ohio coverage.
If this is you, you can check out the specifics of which game is covered where...
