Red Hot Mama:
The Reds’ spring training record dropped to 2-10 yesterday with the 2-7 loss to the Diamondbacks. Johnny Cueto was solid in his start, but the offense is busy at the World Baseball Classic. 24 Reds took the field yesterday, and I could only match 9 of those names to faces.

One of the challenges when it comes to ranking players by position in fantasy baseball is trying to determine which player is going to have that breakout season and return a profit to your auction buy or draft pick. When reviewing the list of third basemen for the 2013 season, my pick to break out is Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds.
Frazier took over at third base for the Reds...
Stemming from a pregame argument over the use of the DH, Reds skipper Dusty Baker refused to shake D-Backs manager Kirk Gibson's hand after Monday's game.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Usually, hard feelings do not occur until a game begins. Not Monday. Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker would not shake D-backs manager Kirk Gibsons hand at the pregame lineup exchange because the D-backs opted against using a DH at Salt River Fields.
Newcomer Brandon McCarthy has not had an official at-bat since 2009, spending his entire career in the American League...
