Everyone wants Corky Miller’s autograph.Ryan Hanigan is suffering from a sore left wrist that was so bad the other day that he couldn’t close his hand. It’s a little hard to catch a pitch without that particular skill. Meanwhile, Devin Mesoraco is suffering from back spasms that are bad enough that he’s obviously cringing on the field. He wasn’t exactly great at throwing runners out anyway; try stopping the running game with your back locking up. Ironically, the team that never used to think twice about wasting a roster spot on a third catcher, even when the first two were in fine shape, is reluctant to bring in a third catcher now, when one is clearly needed. I don’t even know who the emergency catcher is, and that emergency seems like a real possibility about now. I hope it’s Joey Votto, because I think that would be amazing to see. Votto was a catcher earlier in his career, so he probably still has the skills in there somewhere. That would be a pretty damn expensive backstop, th...

Analysis suggests Homer Bailey has fifth-best 'stuff' in league

Homer Bailey has long been a household name for Reds fans everywhere since the organization drafted him seventh overall in the 2004 Amateur Draft. And one of the things scouts, coaches, and fellow players have always raved about the Texan is his "stuff." This is partly why he was considered one of the game's top pitching prospects before breaking into the big leagues...

Reds place Hanigan on DL

Reds' Ryan Hanigan heads to the DL with wrist injury

John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer had the news yesterday afternoon.  The Reds were forced to play another...

Video: Derrick Robinson mistakenly called out trying for inside-the-park home run

Your browser does not support iframes. The Reds were shutout by Wily Peralta and the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday night.

Reds Place Catcher Ryan Hanigan On Disabled List

The Cincinnati Reds have lost catcher Ryan Hanigan as they had to place him on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist sprain. Suffered over a week ago, he had tried playing through the injury to no avail. With the injury worsening and the All-Star break here, the time to get him some rest was now. In a corresponding move the Reds recalled catcher Corky Miller from Triple-A Louisville...

McNeal: Struggling Reds limp to the All-Star break

ST. LOUIS -- That three-team race in the N.L. Central could be down a team by the end of the month. The Reds could be down to the wild-card race by then. A 6-2 victory over St. Dominic grad Johnny Hellweg and the Brewers Wednesday afternoon isn't likely to end Cincinnati's struggles, either. The Reds still have lost 12 of their past 20 games and fallen 4.5 games behind...

3 reasons it feels like the Reds suck

He was safe, actually. I would have made “bad umpiring” into reason number 4, but that’s an epidemic that affects all the teams. (AP Photo/Morry Gash)Two outs in the top of the sixth inning, Reds down 0-2 to the Brewers: Joey Votto takes the first pitch for a ball and sends the second pitch into center field where it is caught by Carlos Gomez. “I guess the Reds are losing...

The Joey Votto Live Game day Journals (7-10-13) Catch Brian Kenny's Attention/Approval

The journals were on twitter, already, but these are higher-quality versions. It also indicates that I can read Joey Votto's thoughts, or it should. But, probably not, now that I think about it. Also, to refresh the memory of those viewing the journals, it's good to see a representation of Votto other than this   ------------------------------ July 10th, 2013...
