Another month of the season is in the books and with it comes the hope and promise of another. But before we look ahead to the sunny month of July, let's reflect upon the month of June by handing out the hardware for the Redlegs Review Players of the Month:
Hitter of the month
Joey Votto - Votto continues to be the front runner for NL MVP honors after...
Mike Leake was brilliant after a rough first inning.
Just a couple of days ago, Reds followers were joining in
with the rest of baseball in poking fun at the Dodgers’ inability to muster any
offense. The past two nights, however, the Reds did their best Dodger Blue
impersonation as the offense went missing in action. On Wednesday, the Fourth
of July ended up...
Johnny Cueto thought he had done enough this year to deserve an All-Star spot. The National League's manager, Tony LaRussa, thought otherwise, and the Reds are not happy about it. Cueto and Dusty Baker are both taking shot at LaRussa in the aftermath of Cueto's snub, point to a fight between the Reds and Cardinals last year, when LaRussa was still managing the Cards. "...
Dusty Baker and the Reds (44-35) used a late-inning surge to race past the host Dodgers (44-37), 8-2, Monday night at Dodger Stadium. Cincinnati scored all of their eight runs in the sixth inning or later including five of them in the last two frames alone. By doing so, they took full advantage of the absences of Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier from the Los Angeles lineup and managed...
10) Attacking LaRussa's integrity is fun for the whole family9) Standing up for his players costs nothing and is sure to inspire them for, well, minutes 8) LaRussa totally didn't spoon after their last encounter, and said he'd call, but totally never did7) Both men really wanted to give ESPN and Blogfrica a lay up during the July dead zone6) The Cardinals-Reds brawl...
Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing two games because of inflammation in his left knee. Votto went 2-for-4. But he ran noticeably slower. "It's not 100 percent," he said. "But I can play. It's good enough to go without causing anymore trouble." After 80 games, anyone who plays as much as Votto is...
As far as controversies go, this one is benign. The Reds think the Redbirds don't like them. National League legendary manager Dusty Baker thinks former National League legendary manager Tony La Russa has it out for his team. And everybody is super ticked that their guys -- their incredible guys -- didn't make the All-Star team. But really, what is the big deal? Baker and...
Tony La Russa and Reds manager Dusty Baker have been involved in a back and forth over La Russa leaving Johnny Cueto and Brandon Phillips off the NL All Star team. Baker contends that the snub of Cueto and Phillips stems from La Russa holding a grudge from a 2010 brawl that Cueto and Phillips were at the center of.
La Russa denies that he is holding a grudge and attempts to give...
An unexpected source of offense has the injury-riddled Los Angeles Dodgers gaining momentum.
Mike Leake is looking to put a stop to it and continue his own.
Luis Cruz will try to continue providing a spark for the Dodgers and help them win back-to-back games for the first time in almost a month Wednesday night against Leake and the Cincinnati Reds.
Los Angeles (45-37) has won two...
