Todd Frazier mired in an 0-for-31 skid got a little advice from some who knows a bit about hitting.
"I call it a funk -- I talked to Pete Rose the other day he said never call it a 'slump'" Frazier said. "So I'm sure going to listen to him. It's just one of those things."
Frazier went 2-for-4 and scored three runs in the Reds' 7-2 victory over the San Diego Padres before a crowd of 30288 at Great American Ball Park. The win was the third straight for the Reds and their fifth in seven games.
Rose initiated the talk.
"He came in he wanted to talk to me" Frazier said. "That's the first time I've talked to him so it was an eye-opener for me. I'm glad he did because he opened my eyes up a little bit. Enough was enough basically. I'm just happy to produce and help the team out."
Frazier was still smiling about the meeting with Rose.
"It's pretty cool" he said. "It's the best hitter in...

If the season ended today, the Reds would have a spot in the one game playoff for the post season. Any playoff baseball is good, but the Reds want to also make some noise by taking their division.

CINCINNATI It is the time of year when scoreboard-watching is about as prevalent as an ornithologist watching birds.And, of course, there is a similarity with Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker because he is bird-watching ever day, watching the progress or lack of progress of the St. Louis Cardinals.But the Cardinals arent the only team Baker follows because, Its no different...

The Cincinnati Reds made the World Series in 1961, where they lost to the New York Yankees. It was the first time they made it to the show since winning the World Series in 1940. This was before the development of the Big Red Machine teams of the late 1960s and 1970s. Former NL and AL MVP Frank Robinson was the best offensive player on that team, but one of the better players on...

A sweep of a first-place team gave the Cincinnati Reds a much-needed boost, as might a better performance from Bronson Arroyo on Friday night.
Arroyo looks to bounce back from a miserable outing by taking advantage of a matchup with a San Diego Padres lineup which is struggling and short-handed.
Cincinnati (63-51) had dropped seven of nine before sweeping two games from AL West-leading...

Two off-days in one week seems like a second All -Star break. This will really help the Reds pitching staff.
A recent retiree told me that retirement is like having six Saturdayâ€™s and one Sunday each week.
