This has been the year of the rookie. Superstar youngsters like Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, and Manny Machado have all stepped into prominent roles for their respective teams. Trout is even in the MVP discussion this year, leading the AL in batting average, and pushing the Angels towards the playoffs.
All the successes of these players, among others, are prompting everyone else to...
Cincinnati (69-46) rebounded from a series opening loss to the Cubs on Thursday to take the next three games over the weekend. For their efforts, they increased their division lead to 4.5 games over the Pirates and 7.0 games over the Cardinals. All is well that ends well, right?
Here's some notable quotes from the weekend series:
Friday (W, 10-8)

Here we are on an off-day for the Reds in the middle of August. The team sits comfortably atop the National League Central standings with a record of 69-46 -- the second-best record in all of Major League Baseball. They hold a 4.5 game lead over the second-place Pirates and a 7.0 game advantage over the defending World Series champion Cardinals. And for the last month, manager...
Don't deny it. Each day of the week feels different in their very own way. For example, Mondays generally pack a light sense of dread, Fridays ignite a rush of excitement and anticipation, and Sundays present us with a valuable day of rest and relaxation.
And unlike the NFL where they only play on certain days of the week, the Reds have the pleasure of playing on...

CHICAGO (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched three-hit ball for eight innings, Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick homered and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 3-0 Sunday.
Cueto (15-6) moved into a tie with New York's R.A. Dickey for the NL lead in victories. He retired the Cubs in order in four of the first five innings.

Johnny Cueto's pitching talent has been evident since his electrifying major league debut on April 3, 2008, when he became the first pitcher since at least 1900 to log at least 10 strikeouts without walking a batter. He emerged with a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Since then, the Cincinnati Reds right-hander has worked to transform himself from a pudgy prodigy into...

Zack Cozart celebrates his 27th birthday today in Chicago as the Reds take on the Cubs for the last of a four game series. Although this weekend hasn’t exactly been huge for Cozart, he did manage to steal three bases yesterday in the Reds’ win and hit a homerun on Thursday.

Mr. Red is the answer to the age-old question,“What would it look like if Mr. Met became a deranged sailor with a handlebar mustache?”
Seeking the consistency that has eluded them for the entire second half, the Mets begin a six-game road trip that will pit them against two top-tier teams in Cincinnati tonight against the NL Central leading Reds. First pitch is scheduled for...
Cincinnati has risen from low expectations to the team of destiny in a single summer. How?
On July 13th, in a moment of accidental prophecy, I wrote the following paragraph: If the Reds have hopes of chasing 1990 and reviving the ghosts of championships past, this season can’t rest solely on the shoulders of Joey Votto. That’s the beauty of baseball; you can’t do this thing...
Mat Latos and Chris Young were once teammates who were considered promising starters for the San Diego Padres.
Latos seems to be fulfilling his potential with the Cincinnati Reds while the same can't be said for how Young is faring with the New York Mets.
These right-handers will match up for the first time Tuesday night when the NL Central-leading Reds open a three-game set...
