This week's most buzzed about Reds storyline was easily the first start for Tony Cingrani.
Redlegs Review staffers reconvene this week for the RR Roundtable to discuss some of the hottest topics in the land of the Redlegs. It's been an eventful week, with the club snapping a five-game losing skid by responding with four straight wins, a continued nagging of the injury bug and the much anticipated debut of Tony Cingrani. This week we debate whether Cingrani has seen the last of minor league life, how worried we should or shouldn't be about Joey Votto and Jay Bruce's lack of early season power and we let our true feelings known about the WOO phenomenon at Great American Ballpark. Joining the roundtable this week is moderator Scott Eddy (@scotte97), Jimmi Adair (@Redlegs_Review), Sara Frey (@somegoodideas), Jon Davis (@I_Bleed_RedsRed) and Matt Bollmann. Let's get to it, shall we?

CINCINNATI So who needs Johnny Cueto? Not the Cincinnati Reds. Not at this moment, anyway. The starting pitching is above reproach, even with Cueto residing on the disabled list.What the starting staff of Bronson Arroyo, Mat Latos, Homer Bailey, Mike Leake and Tony Cingrani need is a little help from their friends carrying baseball bats to home plate.After Bronson Arroyo gave them...

As Jeff Sullivan just pointed out, Shin-Soo Choo leads the majors in on base percentage, thanks to his willingness to endure pain for his team’s gain. #2 in the majors in OBP is teammate Joey Votto, Cincinnati’s star first baseman. The Reds acquired Choo to boost the top of their batting order, and in the first three weeks of the season, he has teamed with Votto to create havoc...

The Reds and Marlins played a 13-inning contest yesterday with the Reds coming out the winning 3-2. Joey Votto plated both of their runs in regulation but the Marlins refused to let him deliver the game-winner and intentionally walked him before Shin-Sin Choo scored on Brandon Phillips’s sac fly. Zach Cozart entered the game with a hot bat but left with a hand injury after going 0-6.
Shortstop Zack Cozart was back in the Reds' starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, two days after he suffered a frightening finger injury while trying to bunt.
Cozart thought he'd broken his right index finger when it was hit by the pitch while he tried to bunt on Saturday. X-rays were negative and the finger made a quicker-than-expected recovery.
Brandon Phillips drove in the go-ahead run for the second straight day, Joey Votto homered and had three hits, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Miami Marlins 10-6 Sunday for their sixth win in seven games.
Todd Frazier hit a three-run double in an eight-run seventh inning for the Reds, who won three of four from the Marlins and improved to a major league-best 10-3 at home.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Brandon Phillips had a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 13th inning, giving the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday.

CINCINNATI Zack Cozart, tough guy? With his boyish good looks and easy-going demeanor Cozart isnt the kind of guy one would fear in a dark alley, or even on a well-lit sidewalk.But after missing one game, the second-year Cincinnati Reds shortstop was back in the lineup Monday night against the Chicago Cubs after having two fingers smashed against his bat when he tried to bunt.When...

Tony Cingrani mowing down Marlins batters.What a game that was yesterday! It’s amazing how a four-game winning streak makes you forget all about a five-game losing streak. It’s almost as if winning cures all.
Except for criticizing Joey Votto, but that’s lead to a fabulous new meme.
Yesterday had everything. Good pitching, good offense, and a feel-good story about a bat boy...
Now that Joey Votto is breaking out of his early power slump, the next priority for Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker is getting Jay Bruce to find his home run stroke.
Votto looks to build on a big weekend while Bruce tries to shake out of his funk for the surging Reds in Monday's opener against the slumping Chicago Cubs at Great American Ball Park.
After hitting one home...
