Last week wasn’t your best example of Reds baseball, losers of 2 out of 3 vs the Cardinals, losers of 3 out of 4 against the Nationals. At 4-6, this couldn’t possibly have been the start Bob Castellini and Walt Jocketty were expecting. The Reds offense is in shambles, but hey at least they’re pitching!

Scott Rolen healthy, but off to a slow start

Scott Rolen is healthy. "Unbelievably, yes," he said. "I am." Rolen, who is coming off his fourth surgery on his left shoulder, went 1-for-4 Tuesday night in the Reds' 2-1 loss in 10 innings to the St. Louis Cardinals. The hit raised his average to .135. The shoulder isn't the issue. "He looks healthy," Baker said. "He was healthy when...

Was Sunday a slump buster?

I heard an interview with Joey Votto over the weekend and he talked a little bit about the Reds bats. He mentioned how they were in a slump and all it takes is one hit to end a slump. Maybe the Reds got those hits on Sunday. In narrowly avoiding a sweep by the Nationals, some of the biggest slumpers currently for the Reds came up big. Scott Rolen was on base when Ludwick smacked...

When the boys were talking about the Cincinnati Reds, Berthiaume dropped an interesting tidbit on Joey Votto’s recently signed 10 year 225 million dollar deal: “I think, think...
