Reds prospect Billy Hamilton has been absolutely scorching minor league basepaths for two seasons now, and he says the secret to his speed comes from his favorite in-game elixir.
Free Todd Frazier!
As the Reds
closed out the mythical first half of the season with a win in San Diego on
Sunday to head into the All-Star Break, fans were left with the
all-too-familiar frustration of seeing Todd Frazier ride the bench while Scott
Rolen flailed away in the lineup.
Dusty Baker was short with reporters when asked about his...
Lotzkar pitching for Pensacola
There's a really good Canadian-born player on the Cincinnati Reds roster in Joey Votto, but the organization also boasts a pretty good Canadian-born prospect in the minor league ranks as well. His name is Kyle Lotzkar and he was recently mentioned in Jim Bowden's piece that featured a list of Futures Game players who could be used as...
The folks at BaseballAmerica.com released their Midseason Top 50 Prospects list late last week and one Reds farmhand made the cut. As you may imagine, that one prospect is none other than speedy shortstop, Billy Hamilton, of the Single-A Bakersfield Blaze. The switch-hitting Hamilton ranked as the 27th overall prospect on BA's list.Hamilton currently sports a slash line of...

Can this guy flat-out fly or what? Billy Hamilton has speed to burn, folks. His wheels were on full display on Sunday as the Reds prospect legged out a triple in the MLB Futures Game in Kansas City.
And no, this isn’t a post about Cincinnati Reds flamethrower Aroldis Chapman.
Randall Munroe, the guy behind the web comic XKCD, has launched a new weekly feature where he will answer science questions submitted by readers. Today’s–the first one–just so happens to focus on baseball.

Over the past few days I sat down and watched some games on Milb.tv when Bakersfield was in San Jose. It was a three game series and Billy Hamilton made the most of it. He went 6 for 13 with 4 walks and 1 strikeout in the series.
Hamilton was incredibly patient at the plate in this series. He looked at plenty of strikes, but he swung at maybe 3 pitches outside of the...
The Reds escaped San Diego with a win in their final game of the series, of the west coast road trip, of the first half. They roll into the All Star Break with a 47-38 record and in second place in the NLC behind the Pirates.
Johnny Cueto started out strong in last night’s game but didn’t end up lasting very long, pitching just 5.2 innings. He still got the win, though...
The Reds (46-38) wrapped up the first half of the season by getting their third win in a four game series against the San Diego Padres (34-52). The Reds finish up going 6-5 on their West Coast Trip. And every Redlegs fan knows that the West Coast is usually a gauntlet for the Reds, and things usually end pretty badly. But the Reds kept it above .500 on the back of back-to-back...
The National League trounced the American League in last night’s All Star Game: final score NL 8, AL 0. Joey Votto continued his 0-for-ASG streak, though the NL has won all of the ASGs he’s been in. Jay Bruce also didn’t get any hits, but caught the last out of the game. Aroldis Chapman only put in 0.1 innings, but he was pitching for Tony LaRussa after all.
All-Star Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick hit consecutive home runs, leading Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds past the San Diego Padres 4-2 Sunday.
The win put the Reds one game behind Pittsburgh for the NL Central lead at the All-Star break.
Bruce and Ludwick connected two pitches apart in the fourth inning to give Cincinnati a 3-0 lead.
The Reds hit seven home runs in winning...
The Cincinnati Reds were pleased overall with their first half. They dropped out of first place in the National League Central last week, but at 47-38, they are within a game of the Pittsburgh Pirates and are in position to claim a wild-card playoff berth. "You always want more," manager Dusty Baker said. "We hoped our young guys would mature and improve, and they...

Todd Frazier continues to produce
Saturday's have been real kind to the Cincinnati Reds lately. The Reds entered last night's tilt against the Padres as winners of six of their last seven games played on Saturday, and made it seven out of eight by night's end. The Reds (46-38) edged out the host Padres (34-52), 6-5, due in part to receiving yet another quality start...
After a successful road trip and a big win on Thursday, the Padres dropped the next three games to Cincinnati to lose the final series before the All-Star break. The losses also snapped the Padres season high six-game winning streak. The Padres won’t play again until Friday, giving their battered rotation time to rest up before the start of the second half of a challenging season...
