More than meets the eye with latest Aroldis Chapman story

Something very strange, dark and mysterious is going on surrounding Aroldis Chapman. It was just over a week ago that I declared him the lynchpin to the Cincinnati Reds 2012 uprising.

Rapid Fire: Reds 3.5 Games Up; Chapman Still On Fire; Billy Hamilton Is Really Fast

With their 12-9 field-goal-fest of a win at Houston on Saturday (whoops, wrong sport), the Cincinnati Reds moved to 30-22 on the season and increased their lead in the NL Central to 3.5 games over the second-place St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds jumped out to an 8-2 lead over the Astros on Saturday, but Mat Latos continued his shaky pitching and quickly gave up the lead. Houston actually...

On the Beat: Fireballer in the Hole by John Perrotto

When Sparky Lyle strode from the bullpen the mound at Yankee Stadium during his days as a premier relief pitches in the mid- to late 1970s, organist Eddie Layton would play "Pomp and Circumstance." That probably wouldn't work as a ballpark song these days, but to hear Dusty Baker tell it, perhaps the traditional graduation accompaniment should be played on the sound...

Reds Players of the Month for May

The month of May treated the Redlegs very kindly. It was a month that saw them not only get over the .500 mark, but it saw them catapult past the Cardinals for first place in the division as well.
