Looking at the first two starts of Tony Cingrani for the Reds

Tony Cingrani now has two starts under his belt in the Major Leagues and the results have been quite strong: 12 innings, 2.25 ERA, 10 hits, 3 walks and 17 strikeouts. That is flat out getting things done. The two starts have both been good, but they have been quite different from each other. In his first start he lasted just 5 innings as he struggled with his control at times, while...

On a strikeout tear, Cincinnati Reds pitchers have cost pizza chain $100,000

Taking a big bite out of its profit margin but making a big splash for its brand awareness, Cincinnati’s local restaurant chain LaRosa’s Pizzeria reportedly has had to fork over approximately $100,000 in free pizzas in conjunction with its promotion where it gives out tasty pies whenever Reds pitchers record 11 strikeouts in a game. The deal is this: Any fan bearing a ticket...

Cincinnati pizzeria, LaRosa’s, has given $100K in free pizza for Reds promotion

via reds.com Through Tuesday, the Cincinnati Reds’ pitching staff had struck out 182 opposing batters in 189 innings pitched.  They top the National League and rank second in the Majors in total K’s for a staff.  And while this is terrible news for National League hitters, it’s outstanding news for Reds fans in the Cincinnati area, especially the fat ones. You see, a Cincinnati...

Injuries, the Reds, and the unluckiest team in the NL Central

Ryan Ludwick attempting to drive in a run in his healthier days.With the minor injuries to Zack Cozart and Jonathan Broxton recently, I started thinking about how injury prone the Cincinnati Reds have seemed so far during the 2013 season. So I loaded up a list of all the injured players across Major League Baseball to compare the Reds to their National League Central opponents. The...

Latos, Frazier deliver 1-0 win to take series

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Mat Latos retired the first 10 batters and 15 of the first 16 he faced and Todd Frazier hit a long home run to help the Reds complete a wacky, impressive, 10-game homestand with 1-0 win over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. With one out in the sixth inning of a scoreless tie, Frazier blasted a 2-1 pitch 480 feet to straightaway center field to increase his team-leading...

Bad-rroyo debuts in Reds 8-1 loss against the Nationals

Bronson Arroyo waits for a new ball after Bryce Harper lost one in the seats.It took until the fifth start of the 2013 season, but Bronson Arroyo’s evil, incompetent twin Badrroyo finally made his first appearance. Arroyo pitched six innings, allowing nine hits, six runs–five earned, while striking out two. It was a bad performance that the Reds’ offense had no hope of overcoming...

Game 22: Cubs 0, Reds 1

The Reds took the game and the series from the Cubs yesterday, but just barely. Mat Latos was great and finally got a win for his efforts. He put in 7.0+ innings and allowed 0 runs on 4 hits and a walk. One of those hits and the walk were to the first two guys he faced in the eighth, though, so it was a good time to bring in Jonathan Broxton for three quick outs. Aroldis Chapman...

Get yer Red-hot pizza, while you can

The Cincinnati Reds have been striking out batters at a breakneck pace, and all those Ks are costing one local restaurant chain, which has handed out more than $100K in free pizza this month as a result of the team's penchant for punchouts. LaRosa's Pizzeria has been a Queen City staple for more than 50 years, with 65 stores in and around Cincinnati, and for the second consecutive...

Chicago ended its four-game losing streak after blowing a late lead for the second straight day. The Cubs let a two-run lead get away in the 13th inning of a 5-4 loss Monday...

The Bryce Harper Monster Bomb off Bunny Arroyo that wrecked by gambling account

May 7th, 2009: I tried to be sneaky tonight by taking a prop bet that Bryce Harper would NOT homer off Bronson Arroyo. You figure that Arroyo is a veteran pitcher who should know better than to pitch to the one hitter in the Nationals cold lineup who can hurt you. What resulted was one of the longest home runs that Bryce Harper has ever hit. After the ball landed on the centerfield...
