Yesterday ESPN released their Sunday Night Baseball telecast schedule for the first half of the season. The Cincinnati Reds will host a mid-July contest at Great American Ballpark to give fans that rare Sunday game under the lights.
It seems as a whole ESPN tried to buck the typical ways of throwing the Yankees, Red Sox, or Cubs on every Sunday Night. This schedule features good variability between teams which is partly in response to the playoff field containing teams like the Rangers and Rays last season.
April 8 Chicago White Sox at Texas
April 15 L.A. Angels at N.Y. Yankees
April 22 Yankees at Boston
April 29 Tampa Bay at Texas
May 6 Philadelphia at Washington
May 13 Angels at Texas
May 20 St. Louis at L.A. Dodgers
May 27 Washington at Atlanta
June 3-July 1 TBD
July 8 Yankees at Boston
July 15 St. Louis at Cincinnati
July 22-Sept 23 TBD
I like what I’m seeing here. As usual we’ll be doing the Sunday Night Liveblogs here at Diamond Hoggers, so we do hope you’ll make a habit of jo...

Is the additon of Ryan Madson, among others,
enough to dub the Reds' division favorites?
Dan Syzmborski wrote a very intriguing column recently implying that the Reds still need to make another big offseason move to be considered the "true division favorites" (it's an ESPN Insider piece, so if you want to view it in its entirety you must subscribe). Nonetheless...
I was going to post about the fact that the Reds avoided arbitration by coming to agreements with Homer Bailey, Bill Bray, and Paul Janish tonight. That is, I was until I went to Reds.com and came upon this press release calling for applications to be a Reds Rally Pack rallier.

If one were to pick which minor league team of the Reds had the best 2011, it would have to be the Single-A affiliate Dayton Dragons. Under manager Delino DeShields (and I love that he's their manager and I don't know why), they finished 83-57, good enough to finish first and win their third division title, and advanced to the quarterfinals of the playoffs.
Many of the Reds minor league teams are welcoming new names to their organizations at the managerial level, as evidenced with David Bell and Jim Riggleman taking over in Louisville and Pensacola, respectively. However, the Bakersfield Blaze may have the most anticipated player joining their roster in 2012, as 2011 Reds Minor League Player of the Year and speedster, Billy...
Last but not least (with apologies to the AZL Reds) we have the Rookie League Billings Mustangs. They finished 44-32 for the best record overall in the Pioneer League North, but missed out on the playoffs by just one game, because they did not have the best record in either half of the season. They did take it all the way to the last day though. The big news for Billings is that...
Outfielder Ryan Ludwick might have been born in Florida, attended high school and college in Las Vegas and resides in Texas, but he's got Cincinnati in his blood.

The A's are nearing a deal with free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. A deal with the ACES client could be completed by Monday.
Conor Jackson and Johnny Damon were also considerations for the A's, who were looking for an outfielder capable of hitting left-handers, according to Slusser. GM Billy Beane has traded for...
CINCINNATI - Free-agent closer Ryan Madson and the Cincinnati Reds have finalized their $8.5 million, one-year...
The Cincinnati Reds officially signed right- hander Ryan Madson to a one-year contract Friday with a mutual option for 2013.
