Ben and Sam preview the Reds` season with Jay Jaffe and Geoff Young, and Pete talks to Cincinnati CBS affiliate sports anchor/reporter Zach Wells (at 18:35).

Checking in with Shin-Soo Choo

The Spring Training season has started, and Shin-Soo Choo is gaining confidence playing center field for the Cincinnati Reds. “But everyday I feel better with practice,” he said. “There’s still work to do. But I feel more confident.” Granted, the former right fielder has only played a little bit, and exhibition baseball is nothing like when the games count, but it’s good...

Votto hits first home run since June 24

It’s only Spring Training, but yesterday Joey Votto hit his first home run in a baseball game since June 24. That was two knee surgeries and one disappointing playoff appearance ago, in case you were counting. The Cincinnati Enquirer’s video of the shot from the press box is below. This is just great to see, and it has nothing to do with the Reds winning their first game of...

Reds place nine players in USA Today top 200 player rankings

Good news, fantasy baseball lovers. The folks at USA TODAY Sports now have a special issue on sale to help you navigate successfully through your league fantasy draft. They have gone through the trouble of ranking the top 200 players in the game so you don't have to. Apparently, USA TODAY Sports really likes the outlook for the Reds. Cincinnati placed NINE players in the top...

Spring training game 3: Reds 0, Indians 3

The Reds wrapped up their first spring training series yesterday when they lost to the Indians. In fact, it’s been three losses in a row to the Indians to start off this training season, but yesterday’s was special in that the other two were slugfests in which the Reds just happened to be behind when the innings ran out. Still, with 20 runs scored in the first 3 games, the Reds...

Cozart happy to be batting 7th for Cincinnati

GOODYEAR, Ariz. Zack Cozart knew he wasnt a leadoff hitter. Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker knew Zack Cozart wasnt a leadoff hitter. Heck, even Gapper, the team mascot, knew Zack Cozart wasnt a leadoff hitter. It isnt a job a most major league rookies can do, especially one without the true tools a leadoff hitter needs. As Plato wrote, Necessity, the mother of invention. ...

A preseason preview of the Reds infield

By: Jon Davis Staff Writer Today we breakdown the Cincinnati Reds infield group as we enter the 2013 season. Going into the 2013 season, the Reds infield is quite possibly the strongest group. Normally, when you lose a guy like Scott Rolen there are questions about who fills the void, but with the emergence of Todd Frazier there are no longer any questions...

Tuesday news and notes

The Reds are back on the winning side of things as they picked up their first win of the spring. Derrick Robinson was the only minor leaguer to rack up a hit as he went 1-2 in the game. On the mound Ismael Guillon threw a hitless inning with 2 walks and a strikeout. Curtis Partch allowed 2 unearned runs in 2 innings with a walk and 3 strikeouts. Mark Serrano struck out 2 in a scoreless...

Reds early season schedule ranked eighth by Buster Olney

So much about the success or failure of a team often has to do with scheduling -- playing the right teams, at the right time, at the right location. ESPN baseball guru Buster Olney knows this and that is why he recently broke down the early season schedules of each team in the National League. In case you are wondering, and I know that you are, the Reds landed in the middle-of...

Reds reading material for the early week

The Reds essentially got swept by the Indians this weekend after dropping all three games to their in-state rivals at Goodyear Ballpark. This has caused some fans to hit the panic button, while the more realistic fans take the losses for what they really are: meaningless. We will get a better idea of how this team really looks once late-March and early-April rolls around. But for...

Hamilton Makes the Switch

The all-time single-season minor league stolen base leader Billy Hamilton is taking a more deliberate approach to his first big league camp with Cincinnati, as he converts from a shortstop to a center fielder.

Brewers pitchers can't stop Reds' Votto

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Joey Votto relished his long-awaited chance to circle the bases. Votto hit a two-run homer, an encouraging sign that he's progressing in his recovery from knee surgery that robbed him of his power last season, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the split-squad Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Monday. Votto didn't homer after June 24 last season because of the injury...

It was a test drive for a joint project between the two sites to bring Redleg Nation Radio to a new format on BlogTalkRadio. The show, we hope, will be a once a week venture. I plan to co-host most of the shows and will be joined by a variety of the writers at Redleg Nation. We are pretty...
