A green Reds' hat? That ain't right.
It's just spring training but it's always nice to beat those rivals from the north and that's just what the Reds (7-9-1) did in convincing fashion on Saturday, beating the Indians (4-9) by a score of 9-2. Bronson Arroyo had his best outing of the spring, while Zack Cozart led the way offensively.
Now let's take a look at the good, the bad, and the notables from today's St. Patrick's Day bout:
-Brandon Phillips got things off to a good start with a leadoff homerun.
-As mentioned Zack Cozart had a huge day, going 2-3, both triples, with three RBIs, and a run scored.
-Chris Valaika had a nice day, subbing in for Phillips, with two hits and two RBIs in three at-bats.
-Looking to get on track this spring, Chris Heisey had a strong 2-2 day, including two runs scored and two stolen bases.
-Bronson Arroyo had a great start, throwing four innings of one run ball, allowing four hits, while striking ...
BEST OF MAXIM
What a difference a year makes for Paul Janish -- and not in a good way.
Janish was the starting shortstop last spring. Edgar Renteria was brought in to back him up but the job was Janish's.
Janish did lose the job. He was hitting .227 without a home run on July 7 when the Reds optioned him to Class AAA Louisville and brought up Zack Cozart. Cozart was deemed the shortstop...
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Unless something dastardly happens to catchers Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan, fans aren't likely to see much of catcher Corky Miller this year.
That doesn't minimize his importance or his contributions to the Cincinnati Reds pitching staff during spring training and over the course of the long, long season.
Miller, 36, is one of the most beloved players...
I want to start out by saying I love Brandon Phillips, who doesn’t, but the Reds will not sign BP to a long term deal for the money Brandon wants, and this is one of the rare cases that both sides are right. Brandon is looking to get around 15 million a year and I say to a team with a higher payroll he would be a great addition to their club. The Reds just can’t commit that...
It’s been a month since Spring Training started, and the Cincinnati Reds finally got around to making their first round of cuts. In all, 16 players had to pack their bags and leave big league camp. None of the decisions were surprising.
IF Kristopher Negron, IF Neftali Soto, RHP Josh Judy; IF Didi Gregorius, IF Henry Rodriguez, RHP Pedro Villarreal; IF/OF Donald Lutz and RHP Kyle...
Many consider March Madness to be the best time of the year. In fact, the wild upsets, crazy buzzer beaters, busted brackets, and large office pools practically make this weekend an unofficial national holiday.
Of the many things running through my mind today there were two in particular that aided in the creation of this post. The first involved Reds baseball and the second...

Did the Reds give up too much in acquiring young hurler Mat Latos? Drawing simply from the results of the latest poll conducted by MLBtraderumors.com, the answer is yes.
Here's the question posed by the site to its readers:
Just as a refresher, the following is a recap of the package each team received for their young arm:
-Athletics trade Trevor Cahill (and Craig...
Matt Latos threw four scoreless innings and Drew Stubbs hit his first home run of the spring to help the Cincinnati Reds beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Friday night.
Latos allowed two singles and struck out three.
Stubbs hit a three-run homer off Alex White in the Reds' four-run second. Stubbs hit 22 home runs in 2010, but had only 15 last season and set a team record with...
Author: Andrew SwansonThe 2010 season was full of numerous surprises, one of which was the breakout season of the Cincinnati Reds. As a team comprised of budding stars and a young pitching staff, few writers and media pendants believed the team had enough pitching to beat the Cardinals for the NL Central crown.Prior to last season’s playoff push, the Reds were thought of as a...
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Tomko family owns a legacy in Cleveland that has nothing to do with Cincinnati Reds pitcher Brett Tomko, nor does it have anything to do with baseball.
It is all about basketball -- the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
When Tomko's father, Jerry, was 29 he entered a contest to provide a nickname for the new NBA franchise in Cleveland.
"He not only...

The Reds (6-9-1) faced off in a late eastern time zone start against the Rockies (7-7) on Friday night. Mat Latos took the ball matched up against Colorado's Alex White. Cincy got back to their winning ways by knocking off the Rockies by a tally of 4-3. Let’s take a look at the good, the bad, and the notables from tonight's game:
Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs in less than four innings, including a long leadoff homer by Brandon Phillips, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Cleveland Indians 9-2 Saturday.
Phillips drove the fifth pitch of the game out of the ballpark and into the Arizona desert. The shot far beyond the left-field fence was tracked down by a youngster in a stretch of sand near a roadway.
