Found June 26, 2012 on Red Hot Mama:
Last Game It was the Mat Latos show in the Reds’ 1-3 win over the Brewers last night. Not only did he go complete game and eliminate the opportunity for anyone to blow his save, the .130 hitter also went 2-for-3 at the plate, posting 2 of the team’s 7 hits. Next Game Bronson Arroyo (3-5, 4.19 ERA) takes his turn on the mound against the Brewers’ Marco Estrada (0-3, 4.50 ERA). It will be Estrada’s first start since May thanks to a stint on the DL.

Votto triples 2nd place in All Star Voting

Joey Votto is clearly running away with the NL’s first base All Star position. So much so, that I think it’s easy to lose perspective. Here’s a couple facts to help increase the resolution on this number: Since last week’s tally, Votto has received over 1.3 million votes. The second-place vote getter has only 1.5 million votes for the entirety of the voting. Votto has about...

Love or hate him, Stubbs delivers for Reds

CINCINNATI If one Cincinnati Reds fan wants to start an argument with another Cincinnati Reds fan, all one need do is say two words: "Drew Stubbs." And the other fan will say, "Them's fightin' words." Drew Stubbs is a buzzword in Reds Country and there is little middle ground one is either for him or against him. Yay or nay. Thumbs up or thumbs down...

Is karma to blame for Aroldis Chapman's recent woes?

The going has been tough lately for no. 54 "What goes around comes around." "You reap what you sew." "You get what you deserve."

Given the adversity that Aroldis Chapman...

Chapman celebrates with somersaults; Reds don’t approve

Aroldis Chapman’s ninth save of the season might have been the most controversial – because of something he did after it was over. Once the Cincinnati Reds closer struck out Martin Maldonado to clinch a 4-3 victory over Milwaukee Tuesday night, Chapman took two somersaults toward catcher Ryan Hanigan in an apparent celebration. The Reds reacted with concern – that Chapman might...

Reds 3B Frazier honored by Dr. Heimlich

Dr. Henry Heimlich presented Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier with a life-saving award on Tuesday before a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Baker to Chapman: No more somersaults

As entertaining as it may have been to fans, Reds head coach Dusty Baker was less than pleased with pitcher Aroldis Chapman’s somersaults to celebrate a save after striking out the Brewers’ Martin Maldonado to secure a 4-3 win. Baker said he knew Chapman was excited to get the save after blowing his last attempt by giving up a game-winning home run, but asked the pitcher to express...

Wednesday Morning Cram Session, 6/27

Here is a post that shows Aroldis Chapman doing two celebratory somersaults toward home plate after recording the final out of the game. Predictably, Dusty Baker gave a "we don't play that way" quote, and speculation abounds: will Joey Votto get a pitch in his ribs in retaliation? Will the Reds fine Chapman?
