The 2012 season is nothing but a distant memory at this point as the frigid air of the offseason begins to take its grip on Reds country.

Frazier, Baker just miss honors

Todd Frazier, also known as The Toddfather, also known as The Guy Who Somehow Filled in for Votto for Two Months, was among the top 3 names in contention for the Rookie of the Year honors this year. And, in fact, that’s just where he ended up in the competition: third. The award ultimately went to Bryce Harper (112 pts), the 18 year old who garnered the Nationals so much attention...

Didi Gregorius homers as Javelinas and Desert Dogs play halfsies

It was a loss for Peoria on Monday afternoon as they were outscored 6-4 by Phoenix. Both teams committed an error, but the Javelinas were outhit 8-6 by the Desert Dogs in defeat. The Reds prospects played a substantial role in this one, but the results were not hugely positive. -CF Billy Hamilton was 1-4, with a run scored and a stolen base (10). He's hitting .273 on the season...

Video: Should Aroldis Chapman start or relieve?

Your browser does not support iframes.   The hottest topic up for debate this offseason is whether or not the Reds plan on using Aroldis Chapman as a starter or reliever in 2013. Of course, the team was facing the very same predicament last offseason as well. Injuries eventually forced Cincinnati's hand to stick Chapman in the bullpen for the 2012 campaign. Needless to...

Baker finishes second in National League Manager of the Year voting

On Tuesday, the Redlegs were once again snubbed of a major postseason award as Dusty Baker finished in second place for the National League Manager of the Year Award, which is voted upon by the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA). Washington Nationals skipper Davey Johnson took the prize after garnering 23 out of a possible 32 first-place votes and totaling 131 overall...

Thursday news and notes

The Arizona Fall League regular season comes to an end today. The Reds team, the Peoria Javelinas have a half game lead over Surprise. With a win they will play on Saturday afternoon on MLB Network for the championship. If they lose they will need Surprise to also lose. Really a slow news day, so let’s get some thought processes going here. Who is the one player you would target...

Recapping the season of Ryan Ludwick

Many weren't too thrilled when the Reds opted to fill their void in left field by signing Ryan Ludwick to a free agent deal last offseason. And it was difficult to blame them at the time. Ludwick was coming off back-to-back mediocre seasons and it appeared as though his skills were declining with his increase in age. The 2012 season proved to be a bounceback one for the Las...

Cueto 4th in Cy Young Voting

Johnny Cueto has established himself as one of the top pitchers in baseball and a couple of unearned runs in his regular season finale prevented him from becoming the first Red to win 20 games since 1988. His success was rewarded by writers with a top four finish in NL Cy Young voting. He maintains one of the best ERA's in the league despite pitching in Great American Ball Park.

Frazier Denied ROY

2012 was quite a roller coaster ride for Todd Frazier. He started off with a strong spring training that appeared to have earned a spot on the Reds opening day roster before a late change sent him back to Louisville for the start of the season. However, he soon got his chance and took advantage of opportunities created from injuries to finish third in the balloting for NL Rookie of the Year.

2012 Season in Review: Yorman Rodriguez

The 2012 season was an up and down season for Yorman Rodriguez as he split his time between Bakersfield and Dayton. After a solid season in Dayton during the 2011 season the Reds sent the 19-year-old Rodriguez to the California League to play with the Bakersfield Blaze. To say that April went poorly for the Venezuelan teenager would be an understatement. He hit .187/.205/.240 with...

Wednesday news and notes

Over at MiLB.com Tony Cingrani was a recent interviewee with Robert Emrich about his rise through the Reds system.  These two things jumped out to me from the interview the most: MiLB: Some scouts think you’ll wind up in the bullpen in the Majors because they consider you a two-pitch pitcher. What would you say to that? Cingrani: The numbers speak for themselves. Give me a chance...
