Bray is headed toward the sidelines
Yet another Reds reliever has been bitten by the injury bug as the team placed LHP Bill Bray (groin) on the 15-day DL on Wednesday. He joins fellow relief pitchers Nick Masset (shoulder) and Ryan Madson (shoulder) on the list of ailing arms from the 'pen.
The 28-year old Bray has been clearly bothered by the condition all spring...
Hamilton has a lot about which to smile.
Billy Hamilton of the Bakersfield Blaze is still tearing up the hitter-friendly California League. In the last seven games, he's doubled the amount of runs he scored in the first 10. He is good. He is really good. His teammate, Tony Cingrani has been impressive in his own right on the mound, sporting a 0.53 ERA. Didi Gregorius is...
The Cincinnati Reds, one of the preseason favorites to win the NL Central, are 8-9, 2.5 games out of first place. On the surface, that looks fine. But dig a little deeper, and you realize that the team's offense has been awful. They're htiting just .229 with only 11 homers, and with the entire team struggling, it's hard to point the blame at one person. Well, I can think...
The Reds are a cool .500 right now. They just took the first two games of the series against the Giants and some outstanding pitchers. Latos’s incredible outing was followed by a solid outing (although a bunch of hits were given up) by the reliable Bronson Arroyo.
It seems like whenever we talk about someone on the podcast (Rolen, Latos, Hoover) good things happen so we hope to...

Three members of the Reds are doing their part in the worldwide initiative to "go green".
Here's the official press release regarding the event:
CINCINNATI (April 20, 2012) — PNC, the Cincinnati Reds and Players for the Planet are joining forces again with Global Environmental Services and many of Cincinnati’s leading corporations for the 3rd annual...
RHP J.J. Hoover was recalled when LHP Bill Bray was placed on the 15-day disabled
list Tuesday, retroactive to April 19, after tweaking the groin injury that set him back
in spring training. Bray aggravated the injury in his last appearance, on April 18 in St.
Louis. Bray had allowed five hits, including two home runs, and four runs with three walks
and three strikeouts in...
The march to .500 continues!

In 2011, Mat Latos emerged from April with an 0-4 record and an earned run average near five. Even though he’s wearing a different uniform, things must be feeling eerily familiar right now.
After three starts, Latos finds himself winless with his new team and currently possesses an unseemly 8.22 ERA and 1.89 WHIP. Yes, the ERA predictors suggest Latos hasn’t been quite this bad...
The Reds (8-9) and Giants (9-8) faced off in the first of a three game series, and first of a nine game home stand. And it was a great evening for the Redlegs.
Mat Latos pitched 7 innings of shut out baseball to lead the Reds to a 9-2 win over the Giants, and Latos' first win in a Reds uniform. The Reds lit up the scoreboard early, forcing Cain to throw 38 pitches and giving...
The Cincinnati Reds closed out the series against the San Francisco Giants this afternoon by failing to sweep the Giants to the tune of 6-5.

Scott Rolen's homer started a four-run rally in the seventh inning that swept the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory Wednesday night, extending the San Francisco Giants' misery at Great American Ball Park.
Rolen's first homer since July 6 ended Barry Zito's shutout and got into the Giants' bullpen, which let the game get away on a rain-slicked field.
