Ryan Ludwick could be the next Reds move

by: Parker Perry Staff Writer  After three innings of the baseball winter meetings, the Cincinnati Reds are still scoreless.  Though it appears at the start of day two of the three day winter meeting, the Reds will start with a man in scoring position.  It's looking more and more like Ryan Ludwick.  The Cincinnati Reds seem more interested in keeping the band...

One trade the Reds should consider to help solve woes at leadoff

The Cincinnati Reds really, really need to acquire a leadoff hitter this offseason. You don't believe me? Well, the numbers speak for themselves. Reds leadoff hitters finished dead last in the National League last year in average (.208), on-base percentage (.254), OPS (.581), hits (146), stolen bases (10), and walks (37). Yes, one would be absolutely correct in saying that the...

Reds named Organization of the Year

The Reds players pause for a moment around the cup during their division-clinching celebration.Well, I didn’t even know that Baseball American gave out an Organization of the Year Award. In fact, for a moment, I wondered if it was another first-time-ever-given awards, like that Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Award. But I looked it up, and it’s been given since 1982. It...

Baker: Reds want to find right time for Hamilton

The Cincinnati Reds need a leadoff man and record-breaking speedster Billy Hamilton could fill the spot. Even so, manager Dusty Baker is wary of promoting him too fast. The 22-year-old Hamilton stole 155 bases this season while splitting time between Double-A and Class-A. He hit .311 during his fourth pro season, then did well in the Arizona Fall League. Baker said Monday at the...

State of the Farm: Relievers

The Reds had arguably the best bullpen in all of baseball during the 2012 season. With it appearing that Aroldis Chapman will move into the rotation, it is likely to take a step backward but should still remain a strong point of the team. There isn’t really a for sure top relief prospect in the system, but there is a rather clear top group of prospects at the reliever position...

Reds named organization of the year

The Reds may not have advanced beyond the NLDS this year, but Baseball America dubbed them as the "2012 Organization of the Year" on Tuesday, nonetheless. J.J.

He also points out the club's...

Press Release: FOX Sports Ohio at Redsfest

Hard to believe that Redsfest is only 4 days away. Sometimes, time flies. On the other hand, I’ve already blocked out huge portions of the 2012 postseason, so maybe time doesn’t fly that fast after all. Here’s some information Redsfest that FS Ohio sent. They’re going to have the “FOX Sports Ohio Girls” in attendance. I bet they’ll be wearing something inappropriately...

What's on the Winter Meeting's agenda for the Reds?

Could Fowler-for-Bailey heat up at meetings?

In the vein of old-fashioned baseball trades … How about Dexter Fowler for Homer Bailey? We know this much, from major-league sources: The Colorado Rockies like Bailey, the right-hander who looked like a legitimate No. 2 starter for long stretches of this year. The Cincinnati Reds like Fowler, the antidote to their worst-in-the-majors .581 OPS from the leadoff spot. Now the question...
