Reds Minor Leagues:
The Reds Organizational All Stars, as picked by Milb.com is now up. My biggest gripe would be with the omission of Denis Phipps from the list. Tough to leave out a guy who hit .346 between AA and AAA. Perhaps it was just an oversight, but its a pretty big one.

Yahoo just recently posted a story about the players with the five best batting averages in a single World Series. I can honestly say I didn't know this, but number one on the list was none other than current first base coach for the Reds, Billy Hatcher. I had heard he played exceptionally well in the 1990 World Series, when the Reds swept the A's (and on this same...
It is according to Forbes magazine. Short but interesting article that shows the dominance of the Cincinnati Reds in the early part of the ’70′s.
Both the ’73 and ’70 Reds make their list.
Our friends at Red Reporter have an interview up with Reds legend Johnny Bench. It’s worth a read.
