BEST OF MAXIM
Reds’ pitcher and stuck-in-the-90s poster child Bronson Arroyo played the Fan Cave recently. I thought there was no way the Fan Cave could top the Brandon Phillips eating weird gourmet foods … [visit site to read more]
The Reds (38-27) met the Mets (35-32) in their last game of a three game series this Father's Day afternoon. Johnny Cueto not only had a great outing on the mound (7.0 IP, 6 H, 1 ER 1 BB, 8 SO) but also got the first multiple base hit of his career on a stand up double in the 3rd inning. Cueto continues to prove he's one of the best pitchers in the National League. Great...
Last night’s game for me was like Las Vegas: exhaustingly active but ultimately disappointing. The Reds dropped the first of the series with the Indians 9-10.
Mat Latos took the mound and was just terrible. In 4.0 innings pitched he allowed 7 runs (earned) on 8 hits, including 3 home runs. Before the game Chris Welsh and George Grande were talking about how Latos could eventually...
It’s All-Star vote status report day: my favorite days in June!
Joey Votto increased his lead over the second-place vote getter in the first base field. The person he’s beating has changed, though. Freddie Freeman of the Braves has overtaken Lance Berkman of the Cardinals for second place. But whereas Votto had 2.47 times as many votes as Berkman last Tuesday, he has 2.64 times...

-Sean Gallagher (W 5-4, 5.04) pitched five innings of two-run baseball for the win. Bill Bray struck out one in 1.1 innings of scoreless ball. Nick Christiani threw 1.2 scoreless innings, and Jordan Smith added...
Joey Votto continues to pace all National League first basemen in fan voting for the 83rd Annual MLB All-Star Game. The league released an updated leaderboard on Monday in which revealed Votto holding a monumental lead at 1B over the next top vote-getter.
Votto currently leads the majors in average, doubles, on-base percentage, walks, WAR, and OPS.
Here's the most...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Scott Rolen has been activated from the disabled list, and the third baseman is in the Cincinnati Reds' lineup for the opener of a series against the Cleveland Indians.
Infielder-outfielder Kristoper Negron was optioned to Triple-A Louisville to make room for Rolen, who had been out since May 12 because of a sore right shoulder. Rolen is batting seventh in the...
Pitchers Mat Latos and Derek Lowe opposed each other for the second time in a week, and much like their last game, a controversy ensued.
The Indians beat the Reds 10-9 on Monday in the first of a three-game series in Cleveland, and Latos thinks some funny business was going on.
The Reds starter got hammered for seven runs including three home runs over four innings, and he implied...
+ “I mean, you’re throwing a projectile 90-plus miles an hour. Evidently they were trying to throw him inside after he hit that ball to left center field, a pitch low and away. No, we didn’t think there was any intent. Every time somebody gets hit now, people think there’s intent. In the umpire’s opinion, if there had been, then he would have issued a warning...
CLEVELAND (AP) - No matter how well the Cincinnati Reds have played, they continue to struggle in Cleveland.
The Reds look to avoid a sixth consecutive road loss to the Indians when the interleague rivals continue their series Tuesday night.
Cincinnati (38-28) outscored Cleveland 24-9 while sweeping the Indians at home last week and had little trouble scoring runs Monday, but its...
NEW YORK -- Jay Bruce hit another big home run to get the Cincinnati Reds on the board and Homer Bailey shut down the Mets as Cincinnati beat New York, 4-1, for the second straight night. The Reds won their fifth game in a row as Bailey (5-4) pitched eight innings of one-run ball. Aroldis Chapman earned his eighth save of the season with a scoreless ninth. Bruce -- who hit the...
NEW YORK -- Before the game, Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker shook his head. A life-long student of the game as a player and manager, he was as stumped as an average fan on some questions. He pointed to how the New York Mets had scored 29 runs against an impressive Tampa Bay Rays pitching staff in a three-game sweep entering the weekend, then struggled against the Reds in the...
