There was once a time in the Cincinnati Reds organization when quality arms were few and far between. That time was pretty recent actually, and there wasn't much in the proverbial cupboard by way of pitching. Fortunately, that's all changed now thanks to great drafts, great signings and outstanding scouting. The Reds have stock-piled talented pitchers from top-to-bottom...

The Reds (42-34) entered Friday's tilt against the Giants (44-34) at AT&T Park badly in need of a win. The club was coming of a stretch of seven losses in 10 games which included being shutout with only one hit on Thursday. And is if their recent run of futility wasn't reason enough to panic, their division lead over the upstart Pirates had dwindled to one. Luckily...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Reds manager Dusty Baker has made sure that closer Aroldis Chapman won't be doing any more somersaults after finishing a game.
Chapman did a pair of forward rolls after striking out Martin Maldonado to complete a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. Chapman has been struggling lately, and celebrated his ninth save with somersaults toward home...
Hanigan recorded the Reds' only hit off Bumgarner.
The West Coast never seems to be nice when the Redlegs visit, and Thursday evening turned into a very unfriendly welcome. The Reds (41-34) and Giants (44-33) met up as Cincinnati began an 11-game road trip on the left coast. San Francisco won 5-0. Johnny Cueto (L 9-4, 2.26) struggled with command a bit, but still ended...

Jay Bruce clobbered his 17th home run of the season off Marco Estrada, who had lights out (12 K’s) stuff. This was culminated by Bronson Arroyo throwing 7-innings of no-hit ball. I started to think about the last time the Reds threw a no-hitter. I started getting into every pitch. Then Arroyo walked a guy. Then a double took away the no-hitter after...
Rube Waddell is the greatest pitcher in baseball history.
Not necessarily in terms of statistics, though he is a Hall of Famer and still holds the AL record for most single-season strikeouts by a lefty (349) that he set in 1904. No, Rube is the official patron saint of Rumors and Rants because of his unusual personality, which included chasing after fire engines on foot, losing...
After two games in the series between the division leading Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants, the Reds have been outscored 6-5. But thanks to not scoring at all during the first game and saving those runs for the second, the series is tied and the Reds have a chance at the series win today.
From looking at the pitching match-up beforehand, it wasn’t the outcome I expected...
Brandon Phillips was originally in the lineup Thursday night for the Cincinnati Reds' 5-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants, but he scratched after fielding pregame grounders and taking a round of batting practice. Phillips was kneed in the head Wednesday by Aramis Ramirez in the third inning of the Reds' 8-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on a caught-stealing play. He stayed...
Randy had a chance to take in a Blue Wahoos game in Chattanooga earlier this week. He sent along a some videos and pictures, but I will share those over the weekend as I simply didn’t have time to edit any of them yet for the website. Here is a write up that he had for the game he was able to take in:

It was a most disappointing loss for the Reds yesterday afternoon at the hands of the Brewers. Homer Bailey didn’t exactly get shelled, but he wasn’t excellent either and he didn’t stick around very long. Zack Greinke for the Brewers was much better, and it showed in the final score of 8-4.
The dreaded west coast trip begins. Without so much as a day off...
