What folks are saying about Phillips extension

"I don't think it's a terrible deal for the Reds. Phillips is a good player who's durable and a fan favorite with a big personality. It does create an impetus to win now, before the Votto and Phillips deals potentially become a financial albatross. Hey, if they win now or next year, they can worry about 2016 in 2016." -David Schoenfield of ESPN.com's...

Simon's walk-off wild pitch costs Reds the opener

Ludwick's two-RBI single tied it in the ninth. The offense once again stalled for the Cincinnati Reds (3-4), as they scored no runs until the ninth inning, though those runs did extend the game. Gio Gonzalez outpitched Mat Latos, limiting Cincinnati to just two hits while striking out seven Reds in seven innings. Latos made his second start for the Reds, but came up...

Game 7: Reds 2, Nationals 3

The Cincinnati Reds had their second afternoon game in a row today, and like yesterday, it was a one-run game. Unfortunately, this time it went against the Reds, who fell to 3-4. Mat Latos made his second start for Cincinnati and again had trouble in the 5th. This time, he made it through 5 innings and gave up only 2 runs. However, his pitch count was almost at 100, so he was done...

Waiver Wire: Zack Cozart, SS, Cincinnati Reds

It’s not a household name, you may have not even heard of him yet, but Reds’ shortstop Zack Cozart is, through five games, having a much better fantasy season than teammate Joey Votto. Obviously that will not hold up, but Cozart has been impressive so far in the 2012 season. He is hitting .471 and has only one homer and two runs batted in but also has two doubles and two triples...

Reds Rapid Fire: Phillips Cashes In Too

Here are some quick notes on the Cincinnati Reds, who are off to a 3-4 start to the season. * It was great to see the team sign Brandon Phillips to a 5-year, $60 million extension (6-years, $72.5 million counting the $12.5 million Phillips is making this year) right on the heels of the huge Joey Votto deal. I honestly thought the team would let Phillips walk after this season, but...

Guest Spot: MTD weighs in on the Phillips Extension

Walt Jocketty is 1/8 Mayan. Did you know that? I didn’t either until he started handing out massive contracts over the past week. With the end of the world looming later this year, the Reds general manager extended Joey Votto for 10 years and $225 million and came to a six-year agreement with Brandon Phillips on Tuesday. Six years and $72.5 million is an awful lot of time and...

The Reds Strike Again: The Phillips Extension

It has been a good week to be a second baseman. On the heels of Ian Kinsler‘s big extension with the Rangers, Brandon Phillips received a roughly similar six-year, $72.5 million deal from the Cincinnati Reds. Unlike Kinsler’s five-year contract, which begins after this season, Phillips’ new contract begins this year. Does this make sense for the team given the Reds current...

Votto's 4 hits help Reds rally past Cards

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Joey Votto tied a career best with four hits and scored the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Chris Heisey's ninth-inning single, capping a comeback from a three-run deficit and leading the Cincinnati Reds over the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Wednesday. Down 3-0 in the third against Jaime Garcia, the Reds tied the score in the fifth. Votto doubled off Marc Rzepczynski...

Reds avoid Cardinals sweep

[Box Score] [Cincinnati.com] I didn’t get to see the first business day special of the year, because I was doing business. The Reds avoided getting swept by their division rivals after getting in a 3-0 hole thanks to a Jon Jay home run off Johnny Cueto. Cueto didn’t have his best stuff it seemed, but he kept the Reds in the game over the course of five toughly contested innings...

Low-Level Highlights: Billy Hamilton

"Speed kills." Throughout the 1980's, that was the widespread belief amongst baseball teams, as the game's greatest leadoff hitter, Rickey Henderson, was piecing together his Hall of Fame Career by being the game's greatest threat on the basepaths. It wasn't so much that he was fast. It was that he was able to take walks and singles and turn them into...

Garcia, Cards fall to Reds in first loss of 2012

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Joey Votto tied a career best with four hits and scored the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Chris Heisey's ninth-inning single, capping a comeback from a three-run deficit and leading the Cincinnati Reds over the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Wednesday. Down 3-0 in the third against Jaime Garcia, the Reds tied the score in the fifth. Votto doubled off Marc Rzepczynski...

Reds fall to defending champs by two

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Carlos Beltran and David Freese homered again on Tuesday night, and Kyle Lohse provided another stingy performance, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The defending World Series champions are 5-1 for the first time since 2008. Beltran, counted on to help make up for the loss of Albert Pujols, hit his third homer off Mike...
