Hoping a day off fixes what ails the Reds

Yesterday, the Cincinnati Reds didn’t play baseball. At least, I assume they didn’t. With them being on their first west coast trip of the season, the games start so late that I could easily miss them. The Reds have been struggling lately, which is never how you want to see them when they’re heading out west. My, there’ve been some seasons lost out west. That won’t happen...

Reds continue to waste Aroldis Chapman

In 1960, the incredible baseball writer Jerome Holtzman...

Bob Melvin’s squad went 2-5 on a seven-game jaunt through Texas and Seattle, losing the final two games to the Mariners in particularly frustrating fashion. For whatever reason, Seattle seems to have Oakland’s number this season...

Reds Avoid Sweep

Mat Latos has been a huge presence in the Cincinnati rotation since they shipped a healthy prospect package to San Diego to get him before last season.
