Red Hot Mama:
Swept. Two series ago, the Reds swept the Indians while playing in Cincinnati. Yesterday, they gave up the trifecta to the Indians in Cleveland, and didn’t even look good doing it.
The final score was 1-8, and the only solace the Reds can take is that they would have lost only 1-5 if not for the most blatant missed call of the decade in the 7th inning. Frankly, that’s not very good solace.
I’m disgusted and already tired of talking about it. Moving … [visit site to read more]

There appears to be no hard feelings between the Reds and Indians after each club swept the other in their home parks over the last week. This is partly true because the two sides agreed to an alleged trade on Thursday, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer.Cincinnati is rumored to have received minor league first basemen Beau Mills in exchange for cash considerations, tweets...
Before Cleveland, the Reds were on a 6-game winning streak. After Cleveland, they own a 3-game losing streak. The latest in the string of putrescence was last night’s 1-8 loss.
Bronson Arroyo started for the Reds and managed to get himself out of trouble every inning until the 4th, when his start ended. In 4.0 innings, Arroyo allowed 5 runs (earned) on 8 hits and 2 walks.
What a tough break for the Reds. They held their own in a pitcher’s duel all the way into extras, only to have their once-ace give it away in the 10th.
Mike Leake started for the Reds and gave ‘em all he could. He went beyond his normal pitch count through the 7th, hoping his offense would break the 1-1 tie. In his 7.0 innings pitched, he allowed 1 run (earned) on 6 hits and...
INSIDE PITCHLeft-hander Aroldis Chapman is fine physically although Reds manager Dusty Baker mentioned earlier this week that Chapman had some lower back pain."I don't see it as an issue," pitching coach Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer before Wednesday's 8-1 loss to Cleveland. "He's gone in there and gotten treatment for his lower back, but he...

For the past few years the Reds have been a hitting club, looking to win with offense rather than defense. Coming into this season it was supposed to be the same old thing, the bats carried the team while the pitching staff did just enough to get by.
Apparently no one gave the pitchers the memo.
Johnny Cueto in particular has been outstanding up to this point, leading the starters...
Chapman is now 0-3 with two blown saves in
his previous seven outings
Tuesday's edition of the Battle of Ohio at Progressive Field unfolded much differently than Monday's 19-run, 27-hit slugfest. Instead of offense, stingy pitching was on full display by the Redlegs and Indians. However, the end result on Tuesday was just the same for the Reds (38-29) as they fell...
The Major League Baseball Futures Game rosters have been released. The Reds have two representatives, one on each side.
Billy Hamilton – SS – United States
Hamilton is recognized as the fastest player in the game, and he probably is (though I think it is a whole lot closer than 99% of people out there think it is between him and the rest of the Top 10 fastest guys in baseball...
Left-hander Aroldis Chapman has gone from unhittable to questionable. Chapman took the loss Tuesday, giving up a two-run walk-off home run to Asdrubal Cabrera in a 3-2, 10-inning loss to the Cleveland Indians. The Reds had taken a 2-1 lead in the top of the 10th when Chris Heisey scored on a wild pitch. "The game goes from jubilation to a down in one swing," Reds manager...

Since the injury to Scott Rolen rookie Todd Frazier has been a solid contributor to the Reds run which has left them atop the NL Central. Now that Rolen has returned it might be time for a decision reminescent of one made nearly a quarter century ago.
