A happy 27th birthday goes to RHP Logan Ondrusek today. And what better way to celebrate than by counting down the last few days before reporting to Spring Training?
The tall right-hander out of Shiner, Texas is coming off a fine individual season in 2011. In 66 appearances he posted a 5-5 record, 3.23 ERA, and a 1.353 WHIP.
Dusty Baker will undoubtedly look toward Ondrusek to help in the middle innings of games once again in 2012.

Ryan Ludwick was traded from the Cardinals to the Padres in 2010 and spent two miserable half seasons in San Diego. In 160 games with the Pads, he hit .228 with a .659 OPS. Compare that to the 37 home runs he hit for St. Louis in 2008, and his .290 lifetime average at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Ludwick signed with the Reds as a free agent and says playing in the spacious Petco Park...
Votto headlines one of the best infield groups in the league
Today we take our best shot at breaking down the Cincinnati infield entering the 2012 season.
by: AJ Jaggers
The Reds defense on the infield grass is stellar. There are few teams that can boast the kind of hardware that this team can, with 12 Gold Gloves between the projected starters (even with...
With spring training getting underway this Saturday for our Reds (well, the pitchers and catchers at least. Position players show up next Thursday) , I thought I would take a look at the prospects/minor leaguers who are heading to spring training and talk about their chances to break camp with the big league team. There are 21 players who still have prospect eligibility. Yesterday...
Everybody is talking about who is going to play left field for the Reds Chris Heisey or Ryan Ludwick. I don’t see why we can’t have both of them in the lineup most of the time. It seems Drew Stubbs has been anointed our center fielder no matter what and I don’t understand why. I understand his speed is nice to have in the lineup, but when you can’t get on base consistently...
Today begins a 5-day series of posts breaking down the 2012 version of the Reds position-by-position. Similar to last year's preseason preview, we'll do our best in breaking down each player at that position while providing an overall group grade and analysis at the end.
Here is a preliminary schedule of what days each position will be featured/published:

2012 Fantasy Baseball NL ONLY 1B First Basemen Rankings
Joey Votto - CIN - There is only one sure-fire elite 1B in the NL and his name is Joey Votto. How good is Joey Votto? Votto last season was a bit off but still put up numbers of 29HR, 103RBI, 101R, 9SB, .309 AVG, .416 OBP. That's how good Votto is to be a bit off and put up those kind of numbers. Votto was...
Cool commercial, and I’m hoping for a decent game out of 2ksports. I can’t stop playing NBA 2k12. I just unlocked the Larry Bird ’84 Celts the other night and I am running the point with Larry Legend. If they got anywhere close to their basketball rendition with the baseball game, then we’re onto something.
This is coming from a guy who understands all about ‘finger mechanics’...
