Cincinnati signed outfielder Daryl Jones on Wednesday.
A former third-round selection by St. Louis in 2005, the 24-year old hit .260/.360/.400 with 7 homers, 35 RBI, and 12 doubles splitting time between Springfield (AA) and Memphis (AAA) last year.
The left-handed hitting and throwing Jones will be entering his seventh professional season in 2012, all of which coming in...
* Should the team attempt to trade superstar Joey Votto? David Schoenfield of ESPN.com thinks they should not. Writes Schoenfield: "the goal of every team is to acquire a superstar, not trade one away."
* MLB.com's Mark Sheldon recently penned a feature article on Drew Stubbs' 2011 season and beyond. You can read his piece here.
The Phoenix Desert Dogs lost again, dropping a close 3-2 game to the Scottsdale Scorpions.
-Brodie Greene was the only Reds prospect to play, going 0-2 with a walk, while playing 2b.
There are just five regular season games left in the AFL.
Those Cincinnati Reds fans who thought closer Francisco Cordero was the antichrist, well, if they watched the postseason they may have greatly altered their warped thinking.Nearly every team in the postseason struggled mightily to close games.Just ask the Texas Rangers, who twice in Game 6 were one strike away from the World Series trophy. They are still looking for that strike ...
The Reds have signed former Cardinals Top 5 prospect Daryl Jones. He isn’t quite the same prospect as he once was, as his speed isn’t thought to be enough to stay in center or have quite the bat for the corner. He seems a little like a Chris Dickerson type of prospect, with slightly less speed and a little less arm.
Usually a topic reserved for Wednesday gets pushed to Thursday...
Our buddy David Schoenfield over at the SweetSpot blog has this piece about why the Reds should hang on to Joey Votto. I agree with every single word. Especially these words:
Plus, there’s this scenario: If the goal is to trade Votto and hope you get lucky that one of the prospects develops into a star, wouldn’t the Reds just end up facing the same scenario? The odds that you...

Eliminate the Charlie Hustle aspect, and what's left? A whole bunch of hits, and a couple of all-time World Series victories. Let's not demean any of that. But I'm going with Frank Robinson as the greatest of all the Cincinnati Reds . Not Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan - or going way back, Edd Roush. Frank Robinson hasn't played with the Reds for 46 years, wasn...
Drew Stubbs' speed should have been the catalyst to drive the Cincinnati offense in 2011. He was the hardest player to induce a double play from and swiped 40 bags, but struck out a club-record 205 times.
While there’s still Chris Heisey’s Breakout Player of the Year award still to talk about, today, I’m looking outside the sphere of Reds-ness and checking out the happenings in the parallel universe of all the other teams.
I know it’s old news by now, but dammit, <a ... [visit site to read more]

Pete Rose may still be barred from the baseball Hall of Fame, but that hasn’t stopped Charlie Hustle from canoodling with potential Hall of Famers…Rose frequently texts with Reds stars Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and others seek his wisdom includng Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez..”When A-Rod texts me,” Rose told the paper, “it’s all about...
