Found July 13, 2013 on Redlegs Review:
It had been two weeks since Aroldis Chapman entered a game with a save opportunity. But the Cuban fireballer made the most of his chance Friday by slamming the door on the Braves and nailing down a, 4-2, Reds victory at Turner Field. Chapman's arm looked especially electric in his outing as 19 out of the 23 pitches he threw lit up the radar gun at triple digit readings. In fact, one of his fastballs even registered at 104 MPH. This is according to the velocity chart found on BrooksBaseball.net, which uses information from the Pitch F/X system in each stadium, not the in-stadium radar gun, which is often considered slightly inaccurate. From C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer: Chapman threw 19 fastballs and averaged 102.13 mph on Friday, with his max speed at 104.81 mph. He’d hit 106.01 on Sept. 24, 2010, in San Diego according to the same website, 105.1 according to others. FanGraphs.com had his top end at 104.1 mph last night and MLB.com’s At-Bat app called his...

Bailey looking to bounce back against depleted Braves

It would be hard to come up with two more disparate starts than Homer Bailey's last two. The right-hander will look to bounce back and lead the Cincinnati Reds to a second straight victory over a depleted Atlanta Braves squad on Saturday. Bailey (5-7, 3.70 ERA) followed his no-hitter against San Francisco on July 2 by giving up a season-high 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings in Milwaukee...

A disturbing trend

When I was doing what passes for research around here for a post a couple days ago, I noted that the Reds’ winning percentage has been getting worse, but that it was still better than the winning percentage of the first place teams of two of the divisions. Factoids like that make it kind of hard to keep perspective, so I got curious to see how the progression of the Reds’ record...
