Found July 17, 2012 on Red Hot Mama:
The Reds dropped the series opener to the Arizona Diamondbacks last night, 5-3. Bronson Arroyo was Badroyo last night. He pitched only 3.0 innings, but allowed all 5 of the Diamondbacks’ runs in that amount of time, all earned, on 8 hits and a walk. It was a sad trombone kind of night for the Reds’ righty. The bullpen was good, though. Alfredo Simon put in as much time as … [visit site to read more]

Reds' Votto out 3-4 weeks

Reds first baseman and MVP frontrunner Joey Votto will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a torn meniscus in his left knee. 

Reds can overcome temporary loss of Votto

CINCINNATI There are no placards hanging in the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse that say, "Keep a stiff upper lip," but there are, indeed, more stiff upper lips these days than on the Queen's Guard at Buckingham Palace. It is all due to the loss of All-Star first baseman Joey Votto for three weeks after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday. The team, of course...

Reds lose Votto, then lose to the Diamondbacks

Arroyo had a rough go of it tonight. Joey Votto is having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss three to four weeks. Oh yeah, and the Reds (50-39) also played and subsequently lost 5-3 to the Diamondbacks (43-46) tonight.  Bronson Arroyo (L 4-6, 4.03) reverted back to his 2011 ways for the night and was the losing pitcher, giving up five earned...

After All-Star nod, Baker to give Votto day off

CINCINNATI It was something Dusty Baker suspected, something he sensed, about his players who participate in the All-Star game. And it's one reason why All-Star first baseman Joey Votto won't be in the Cincinnati Reds lineup Monday night when the team opens a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Baker's theory is that players who participate in the All...

Reds get 1st W without Votto against D-backs

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto felt the blister and the heat. Neither one was all that much of a problem. Cueto showed no significant issues from his finger blister during six innings Tuesday night, and Ryan Ludwick hit a three-run homer that sent the Cincinnati Reds to their first victory without Joey Votto, 4-0 over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Votto had surgery earlier in the...

Reds' Votto to undergo minor knee surgery

The Cincinnati Reds got their first piece of really bad injury news Monday. Joey Votto will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday to repair torn meniscus in his left knee.

Tater Trot Tracker: Billy Hamilton Breaks the Tracker by Larry Granillo

If you've been paying attention to the minor leagues at all this summer, you probably know the name Billy Hamilton. A 21-year-old shortstop in the Reds system recently promoted from Bakersfield to Pensacola, Hamilton is known for one thing: speed. And I don't mean that in the way that, say, Tom Cruise is known for being crazy or Nigel Tufnel is known for going to eleven....

Reds closer's Ohio traffic case resolved with fine

Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis (Ah-RAHL'-dus) Chapman has been fined $150 plus court costs for an Ohio speeding ticket. A Grove City court clerk says a second charge of driving under suspension was dismissed. Chapman's license had been reinstated sometime after his May 21 arrest. Police in the Columbus suburb had reported clocking Chapman at 93 mph on Interstate 71. They...

Hamilton vs. Campana

So reader Virginia Phil had the idea to try and time the inside-the-park home run of speed phenom Billy Hamilton with that of Crazy Legs Campana from last year. By his not-quite scientific standards, Hamilton just edged out Campana by a tenth of a second. Reader Black Earthling took it  a step farther and synced the two videos for the definitive video proof. I don't think...

D-backs rookie's wildness hurts him again

Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Trevor Bauer blew opponents away with superior stuff in his half-season in the minor leagues this year despite walking a batter every other inning. Bauer has not been able to get away with less than top command in his four starts in the major leagues, a point Cincinnati drove home behind right-hander Johnny Cueto in a 4-0 victory over the D-backs...
