Last Game It was yet another loss for the Reds yesterday. They lost 2-4 while visiting the Rangers in Surprise, AZ. The game was televised on the MLB Network, so I got to watch a Reds lineup minus Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips while I put in my time on the treadmill. It was so meta. Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-3 with an RBI and Miguel Olivo went 1-for-1 with an RBI and a run scored. That’s about all that’s worth mentioning from the offensive side. From the defensive side, there’s more to say. Starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo took a line-drive to the pitching hand in the sixth inning. He left the game for x-rays, which were negative, and it sounds like today he’s already feeling fine. It must be the supplements. Next Game This afternoon the Reds host the Mariners at 4:05 p.m. Homer Bailey will be starting for the Reds. Mark Berry congratulates Scott Rolen after a game-tying home run.Get Well Soon, Berry The Reds’ long-time third base coach, Mark Berry, has been diagnosed with cancer i...

Joey Votto says winning World Series is 'most important thing in my career'

Could this be the year the stars align just right for the Reds? Could this be the year Cincinnati celebrates its first World Series title since 1990? The Reds have been stockpiling talent for a decade now in preparation to contend for a championship. Their ability to scout, draft, and develop players has led to the franchise's recent success, which includes a division crown...

In brief: Isn’t it about time to start winning?

Last game Ugly, ugly score yesterday. The Reds lost to the Mariners 16-0. Homer Bailey took the brunt of it, allowing 9 runs (8 earned) on 9 hits and 2 walks through 3.1 innings. Wilkin De La Rosa gave up the next 6 (5 earned) on 5 hits and 3 walks through 1.1 innings. Compared to those two, the run apiece given up by Manny Parra and Kevin Whelan hardly seem worth mentioning. Justin...

Member of Reds coaching staff informs team he has cancer

On Sunday, Reds third base coach Mark Berry delivered some tough news to the clubhouse. The 50-year-old told the team that he has been diagnosed with cancer. “I have cancer,” Berry told reporters after the team meeting. “I know it sounds bad, the word cancer, but there are plenty of people in this clubhouse that have had it and I know people around the game who have beaten...

Ten thoughts on the current state of the Reds entering the regular season

One week from today, the Reds will be playing host to the loaded Los Angeles Angels at Great American Ball Park for their season opener. It's going to be a festive occasion full of pageantry, tradition, and dreams of what the new season may hold. Until then, the Reds still have several exhibition games left in Arizona to endure. Being that we are so close to commencement of...

Reds put Chapman back in Pen’

After a lot of drama about whether Reds flame-throwing left hander Aroldis Chapman should start or stay as the closer, the Reds finally came to a decsion to leave him in the closer role.  Leaving the fifth spot in the starting rotation open for Mike Leake. Chapman came out earlier this week and made it clear that he would prefer to be the closer rather than be in the starting rotation...

Reds to roll out even more food options at Great American Ball Park in 2013

Food offerings at stadium venues have come along way in recent years. It used to be rare to find anything besides traditional items such as hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, and coke. Now, concession menus across the country have expanded to accodomate even the most fickle of eaters. The Reds have certainly done their part to stay up with the trend by offering its fans a nice blend of...

Reaction To Chapman Decision

  Aroldis Chapman turned in one of the best seasons by a closer in MLB history last season when he saved 38 games (in 43 opportunities) struck out an amazing 122 batters in 71.2 innings, had an ERA of just 1.51 and a WHIP of merely 0.81. Interestingly, the only season by a closer since 2004 that was on par or better than what Chapman accomplished last season … happened...

A trade, mock drafts and a podcast

The weekend was full of plenty of news. First and foremost was the Aroldis Chapman will close decision. While that isn’t minor league related, it does lead to minor league decisions. That may push a “loogy” out of their role that was present with Chapman as a starter, opening a spot for JJ Hoover. Of course, there are still plenty of reasons to believe that JJ Hoover winds...

Frazier Readies for Opening Day Start

When Cincinnati broke from spring training one year ago it appeared that Todd Frazier had landed a spot on the opening day active roster until a disappointing move sent him to Louisville right before opening day. That didn’t stop him from becoming one of top run producers for the Reds last year. Now he’s ready for regular duty at third base as the Reds vie for another trip to the postseason.

Q&A: Bronson Arroyo, Master Craftsman

Bronson Arroyo has won 115 games in the past nine seasons. He’s also come up big in the postseason. But none of his success has come thanks to overpowering stuff. The Cincinnati Reds’ right-hander is a craftsman. His fastball rarely reaches 90 mph, and his breaking pitches are more varied than they are exceptional. His strengths are deception and guile. Featuring a high leg kick...

Reds 11, Cubs 1

Johnny Cueto pitched six shutout innings in a smooth warmup for opening day and Todd Fraizer homered to send the Cincinnati Reds to an 11-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night. Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija also had a good night in his final outing before the season opener. He gave up one run and five hits in five innings, striking out five. Cueto had a hit in the third...

The Knee

Cincinnati entered this spring training without many questions but one of the big ones they had was the health of Joey Votto’s knee. Though comments from him indicate he’s needed a lot of extra work to prepare for their April 1 opener, the way he’s been hitting Cactus League pitching suggests he’s at least close to being back to 100%.
