Look around the landscape of Major League Baseball and you would be extremely hard pressed to find any starting pitcher more reliable and durable than Reds right-handed veteran Bronson Arroyo. The 36-year-old has been a model of consistency since joining the Reds prior to the 2006 season. In fact, no other National League pitcher has won more games or made more starts than Arroyo has since the beginning of the 2006 campaign. Part of the reason for Arroyo's success lies in his ability to stay healthy. In 14 big league seasons, Arroyo has never missed a start and has never spent any time on the disabled list, a modern marvel in today's day in age where pitchers land on the DL multiple times in their careers. Arroyo is on pace to start at least 32 games for the 10th consecutive season, reach 200 innings for the eighth time in nine years (he pitched 199 in 2011), and win 15 games for the fourth time in six years. "That's where most of my ego lies, to be hon...

Video: Brandon Phillips unleashes tirade toward beat writer

Emotions were running high in Cincinnati's clubhouse before Wednesday's series finale against the Cardinals, and understandably so. The Reds were in danger of getting swept in humiliating fashion to their division rivals, and more importantly, losing more ground in the pursuit of first place. So, after Tuesday's 6-1 defeat to the hands of the Cardinals, All-Star second...

Brandon Phillips cussed out reporter

Brandon Phillips cussed out a Cincinnati reporter who questioned his move in the team's lineup to the number two spot.

The whole Brandon Phillips thing

I didn’t hear about this until some 18 hours after it happened. When I did, I took a tour of the Reds blogs to see what reaction was. There was a whole lot of “everyone already knows about this” and “there’s nothing to say that hasn’t already been said.” I, as you may have noticed, have been busy with a life outside of baseball lately, though, and was actually looking...

Reds release postseason ticket information

There is a very good chance that the Reds could be playing in their third postseason in the last four years this fall.  They entered play Monday night with a comfortable 7.0 game lead for the last National League Wild Card spot and trailed the Pirates/Cardinals for first place by just 2.5 games. Furthermore, their odds of making the postseason sat at a promising 99.1 percent...

Reds' Phillips verbally blasts beat reporter in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS -- Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips verbally blasted a beat reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer before Wednesday night's game against the Cardinals. With media crowded in the visiting manager's office for Dusty Baker's pre-game presser, Phillips came to the door and unleashed a profanity-laced tirade. Baker was in the process of discussing a shakeup of...

National writer claims Brandon Phillips isn't only Reds player to rip reporter for criticism

Whether you like the man or not, what Brandon Phillips did before Wednesday's game against the Cardinals is really hard to defend. The Gold Glove second basemen disrupted an interview in the clubhouse and used an expletive-filled, verbal attack on Cincinnati Enquirer beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans after the latter sent out a pair of tweets about Phillips' on-base percentage...

Video: Chris Heisey sends home run to upper deck

Your browser does not support iframes. Chris Heisey put his power on full display Wednesday night by depositing a home run into the upper deck of Busch Stadium. Heisey's ninth home run of the season came in the top of the ninth inning off St. Louis Cardinals reliever Fernando Salas and effectively gave the Reds a 10-0 lead. It's not everyday you see a ball end...

Brandon Phillips’ Outburst Very Unnecessary, Especially Since Reporter Made Valid Argument

Come on, Brandon Phillips. You’re better than that. Phillips is in the midst of another productive season and the Reds still have an outside chance of winning the National League Central. At the very least, Cincinnati should be able to secure one of the NL’s two wild card spots. So can someone explain why Phillips is concerned about a sportswriter pointing out the three-time...

Eight Reds prospects selected to play in Arizona Fall League

The end of August also means the end of the season for most minor league teams across the country. Such is the case for several of Cincinnati's minor league affiliates, too. And while some prospects will pack up their bags and head home for awhile, others will take their talents to the Arizona Fall League to work on improving their game. Here are the Reds prospects who...

Johnny Cueto continues throwing program on road with the Reds

Johnny Cueto has been on the disabled list three times this season, but he hadn't traveled with the team to continue his rehab, until now. As reported by Mark Sheldon of MLB.com, the reason that Cueto has joined the team on the road is so he can work with pitching coaches Bryan Price and Mack Jenkins, head trainer Paul Lessard and strength coach Matt Krause.  "He...

Brandon Phillips insults reporter for pointing out his on-base percentage

Brandon Phillips is apparently quite sensitive about his on-base percentage and would prefer reporters don't tweet about it.  Before Wednesday's game versus the St. Louis Cardinals, the Cincinnati Reds second baseman barged into the media's interview with manager Dusty Baker to berate Cincinnati Enquirer beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans. Phillips didn't like that...

Reds' Sean Marshall steps up rehab and throwing

Reds reliever Sean Marshall is hoping to return this season as he recovers from a sprained left shoulder that has landed him on the disabled list most of the year. Marshall has stepped up his rehab and throwing according to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. "I'm pushing it and trying my best," left-hander Marshall said on Tuesday. "I want to help the team out, especially...

Brandon Phillips curses out reporter; Dusty Baker finds it amusing

The Cincinnati Reds are knee deep into a pennant race, trailing the division leader St. Louis Cardinals by 3.5 games as we approach September. Manager Dusty Baker decided to make a lineup change, and move Brandon Phillips to the two-hole, and it was met with some skepticism by Cincinnati Enquirer’s C. Trent Rosecans, criticizing Phillips’ OBP:   Reds go from a hitter with a...

Balentien hits 55th homer in Japan

Former major leaguer Wladimir Balentien hit his 55th home run on Wednesday, tying Japanese baseball's single-season record. Balentien matched the mark set by Sadaharu Oh in 1964 and equaled by ex-major leaguers Tuffy Rhodes in 2001 and Alex Cabrera in 2002. He has 21 regular-season games left to break the record. Balentien hit a solo homer in the sixth inning at Jingu Stadium...

Reds lose again to Cardinals, 6-1

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker is tired of losing to the St. Louis Cardinals.
