After being eliminated by Puerto Rico on Friday, the Americans are now 0-for-3 in their bid to win the World Baseball Classic. In fact, the United States has failed to finish any better than fourth place in the tournament, which is a major disappointment to say the least.
Now, Reds skipper Dusty Baker wants to play a key role in changing that for a future Classic.

About a month and a half ago, I talked about the situation involving the Reds moving Aroldis Chapman to the Cincinnati rotation. I felt the flame-throwing left-hander should have stayed as the team’s closer, but it was obvious what the organization’s decision was last winter, as they re-signed Jonathan Broxton to a three-year/$21 million deal. However, as we’re just two short...

Now that the Cardinals have selected Francis 1 to be their leader, what are they going to do with Mike Matheny? (Insert rim shot here.) In honor of St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday, I thought I’d become Irish this week and provide a few cheesy Reds limericks. Thanks to Vivian Ooten, and Dr. Jack Ward for their input.
At first base is Joey...
Against the wishes of general manager Walt Jocketty and others within the Reds organization, Cincinnati flamethrower Aroldis Chapman said Saturday that he “would like to be a closer.” “Truthfully, I would like to be a closer, but that’s not in my hands,” said Chapman, 25, who has gone 11-8 with a 2.33 ERA while amassing 212 strikeouts in 135 frames since debuting as a professional...
Joey Votto was drafted out of Richview Collegiate Institute in Toronto by the Cincinnati Reds in the 2nd round, 44th overall, in the 2002 MLB Draft at age 18. While in high school, Votto had spent most of his time at third base, but also saw time his senior season as a catcher. When his name was called at the draft he was announced as a catcher. Scouting reports on Votto out of high...
Xavier Paul and Todd Frazier homered in Cincinnati's five-run first inning against Cleveland opening-day starter Justin Masterson before the Reds and Indians tied 7-7 in a game called after nine innings Sunday.
Paul connected after singles by Zack Cozart and Joey Votto. Frazier's shot followed a walk to Jay Bruce. It was the second home run of the spring for both players...
Aroldis Chapman rebounded from a first-inning jam in his fourth appearance and second start of spring training, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 7-6 on Saturday in a split squad game for both clubs.
The Reds continue to consider whether to make the left-hander the team's fifth starter or keep him in the closer role. Chapman, who said after his outing...
