BEST OF MAXIM
Shin-Soo Choo of the Reds will probably never hear the end of this one, especially from his teammates. Friday night when his Reds took on the Dodgers, Choo took off from first on a hit and run and paid a little too much attention to Hanley Ramirez of the Dodgers who pretended he had grabbed the ball as it flew by him and into center field. Skip Schumacher also played an integral...
Shin-Soo Choo is a career .289 hitter and bats leadoff for a playoff contender. But on Thursday night, he fell victim to two of the oldest tricks in the book, making the Reds-Dodgers game look like something out of "The Bad News Bears."
The trouble for the Cinicannati center fielder started in the fourth inning, as he fell victim to a baserunning ploy by Los Angeles rookie...
Mesoraco following a game-tying home run in May.Everybody’s writing about the recent success that Cincinnati Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco has been having this month.
First, Red Reporter talks about how Mesoraco, kind of forgotten, may well become the right-handed impact bat the Reds have sorely needed.
[T]he 2013 Reds lack an offensive player who is outperforming expectations. They’re...
This week we will take a look at third baseman Tanner Rahier and relief pitcher Abel De Los Santos.
Manny Parra was not always my favorite player. Some of you might remember when I said the Reds should give out booze, like they do with 11 strikeout pizza, when Parra and Alfredo Simon pitched in the same game. Parra has been pretty great lately, something I attributed to his Boston Rob like facial hair. After he got out of a late inning jam in the Reds win last night, I made more...
Ryan Ludwick was sent out on rehab assignment with the class A Dayton Dragons yesterday while they played the Lansing Lugnuts. Ludwick was the DH and had three plate appearances. He popped out, walked, and singled. Nice that he’s trying out all the possibilities. Perhaps tonight he could try out that home run muscle.
Ludwick has been out of the major league line-up...
HOW VERY CLEVER
courtesy of www.thenewstribune.com With all the talk of rookie sensation Yasiel Puig this season the real catalyst for the Dodger success is LA shortstop Hanley Ramirez. He is the unsung hero for the National League West division leaders. Dodgers are 17 and 5 in their last 22 ballgames and leading the division by a half game. It all starts with the team’s best player, Hanley...

Seeing Reds Don’t look now, but the National League Central Division is turning into a three-team powerhouse. St. Louis has been good for what seems like forever; the Pirates have sailed through the first half in recent years, only to walk the plank in the second half with lackluster pitching; and the Cincinnati Reds have [...]
NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta Braves right-hander Humberto Carpio and Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yoel Noel have each been suspended 50 games for violations of baseball's minor league drug program.
Carpio and Noel were each penalized Friday after testing positive for anabolic steroids. Carpio tested metabolites of Stanozolol and Noel for metabolites of Nandrolone.
Both players were...
Bronsoning. Sticking your finger in your friends drink and then yelling out "Bronsoned" to pay homage to Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo!
