Found March 29, 2013 on
Slowly but surely, day-by-day, the ESPN Baseball Tonight crew has been unveiling its rankings for the top 500 players in Major League Baseball for 2013. The series began on March 20 and concluded on Friday, with the unveiling of the top 10 players.
As you might imagine, several Reds made the cut. After all, there are only so many active MLB players they can choose from. And why not cherry pick guys from a team whose expected to defend its division title?
Without further ado, here is the list of Reds players who made the grade, accompanied by their 2013 ranking (their 2012 ranking is in parenthesis)...
499 - J.J. Hoover (NR)
408 - Mike Leake (286)
334 - Zack Cozart (444)
320 - Bronson Arroyo (391)
293 - Ryan Hanigan (415)
284 - Ryan Ludwick (437)
250 - Jonathan Broxton (281)
248 - Todd Frazier (NR)

73 - Mat Latos (76)
55 - Jay Bruce (68)
46 - Aroldis Chapman (...

You may have heard that former MLB slugger Manny Ramirez recently signed a deal to play professionally in Taiwan. Well, if not, just know that he did. Here is the story if you don't believe me.
On Wednesday, Ramirez made his much-anticipated Taiwan Chinese Professional Baseball League debut with his new team, the EDA Rhinos. He went 2-for-6 at the dish, with two...

This place will soon come alive with the sounds of summer.
After months of kicking around aimlessly through the cold months of winter, baseball fans can finally rejoice - the season is here! With that, our esteemed group of Redlegs Review writers convene for a joyous edition of the RR Roundtable. This week, Scott Eddy (@scotte97) returns as moderator and is joined by Jimmi...
Manny Ramirez is officially back on the diamond, folks.
Unable to land a job (or even a spring training invite) with a major league club, Ramirez has landed in Taiwan, inking a deal with the EDA Rhinos. However, the local fans may apparently want to acclimate themselves with their new star.
According to Busted Coverage, Ramirez’s Wednesday debut was nothing short of a circus, as...

The Reds were winners again yesterday, taking down the Padres 3-7. Mike Leake did the starting for the team and had a good outing: 1 run on 5 hits in 6.0 innings.
Ryan Ludwick came through big time with a 3-run homer in the seventh inning to break the 1-1 tie and give the Reds a lead they wouldn’t lose. Joey Votto also his a home...
There's nothing quite like Opening Day in Cincinnati. The pageantry, the tradition, the promise that only a new season can bring; it all adds up to one of the most anticipated days of the year for the Queen City. The city has been lucky enough to celebrate many of them since the team was established in 1869. And in honor of yet another one in 2013, I thought it'd be neat...

Former MLB superstar Manny Ramirez made his home debut with the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Baseball League Wednesday night. He is by far the biggest name to ever play in the league. Fans throughout the stadium made signs supporting Manny, but one has stuck out from the rest.

The Cincinnati Reds remind me of the 2007-2008 Philadelphia Phillies. A team that has been ready to win for a couple years; the only difference: they won a division title in 2010 in addition to their NL Central crown last season. Attention has shifted to teams such as Washington and Los Angeles, as well as the World Series Champion Giants and the Cardinals, who were in the NLCS for...
The Cincinnati Reds won a whopping 97 games last year and expectations are even higher entering the 2013 season.
While I have no doubt the Reds are a better team, I don’t think they’ll reach their win total of last season. A lot went right for them during the 2012 regular season when they didn’t have a starting pitcher miss a start and their run-differential of plus...

We continue our MLB previews today by moving into the Central divisions, beginning with the NL. Full disclosure: I am a diehard Cardinals fan, and therefore also a Cubs hater, but I’m going to do my best to stay as objective as possible here.
