A green Reds' hat? That ain't right.
It's just spring training but it's always nice to beat those rivals from the north and that's just what the Reds (7-9-1) did in convincing fashion on Saturday, beating the Indians (4-9) by a score of 9-2. Bronson Arroyo had his best outing of the spring, while Zack Cozart led the way offensively.
Now let's take...
What a difference a year makes for Paul Janish -- and not in a good way.
Janish was the starting shortstop last spring. Edgar Renteria was brought in to back him up but the job was Janish's.
Janish did lose the job. He was hitting .227 without a home run on July 7 when the Reds optioned him to Class AAA Louisville and brought up Zack Cozart. Cozart was deemed the shortstop...
I am a really big fan of the Cincinnati Reds. Not a real fan, just someone that thinks they’re going to be good. They have a young squad full of bombers and speed. They have some talented young pitching and they have a manager that likes to destroy young arms.
What’s not to like? Like Tony LaRussa, Dusty Baker, wins just about everywhere he goes, in spite of himself. He practically...
The Reds (8-10-1) and the Chicago White Sox (5-11) faced off Monday in what turned out to be primarily a pitchers duel with little offense. The Reds got the best of the Sox and scored the only run of the game winning 1-0. Homer Bailey started for the Reds opposite of LHP Chris Sale. Let’s take a look at the good, the bad, and the notables from today’s game against Chicago:...
It’s been a month since Spring Training started, and the Cincinnati Reds finally got around to making their first round of cuts. In all, 16 players had to pack their bags and leave big league camp. None of the decisions were surprising.
IF Kristopher Negron, IF Neftali Soto, RHP Josh Judy; IF Didi Gregorius, IF Henry Rodriguez, RHP Pedro Villarreal; IF/OF Donald Lutz and RHP Kyle...
I want to start out by saying I love Brandon Phillips, who doesn’t, but the Reds will not sign BP to a long term deal for the money Brandon wants, and this is one of the rare cases that both sides are right. Brandon is looking to get around 15 million a year and I say to a team with a higher payroll he would be a great addition to their club. The Reds just can’t commit that...
The Cuban Missile has enjoyed a nice spring thus far
The Spring Training schedule is now a little over halfway complete and Opening Day is a mere two and a half weeks away. Here's a look at who's been having success this preseason, as well as some players that haven't:
- Scott Rolen: The 36-year old is batting .444 (8-18) with a .524 OBP. He...
The Cincinnati Reds (7-10) snapped a modest 2 game winning streak as a 9th inning rally against the Arizona Diamondbacks (7-9) fell just short. The Reds took an early lead before blowing up in the 7th. A single lost in the wind, and a key error lead to 7 runs in the inning for the D-Backs. Trailing 8-5 going into the final frame the Reds were able to score 2 runs to make...
Did the Reds give up too much in acquiring young hurler Mat Latos? Drawing simply from the results of the latest poll conducted by MLBtraderumors.com, the answer is yes.
Here's the question posed by the site to its readers:
Just as a refresher, the following is a recap of the package each team received for their young arm:
-Athletics trade Trevor Cahill (and Craig...
Today is the eighth and final day of the series featuring our season predicitons. We hope you've enjoyed reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them. In this post we examine some of the team's potential All-Stars. Here's who we dubbed as the most likely hopefuls:
@RedlegsWriter's picks: Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce, Scott Rolen, Johnny Cueto,...
The Cincinnati Reds gave little help to Indians pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez who has been continuously looking to find his from since coming over to the American League last season. The Reds started the game off with a lead off home run from Brandon Phillips. Zack Cozart was little help to Jimenez who is looking for some confidence either, Cozart had a huge day at the plate. The reds...
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Tomko family owns a legacy in Cleveland that has nothing to do with Cincinnati Reds pitcher Brett Tomko, nor does it have anything to do with baseball.
It is all about basketball -- the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
When Tomko's father, Jerry, was 29 he entered a contest to provide a nickname for the new NBA franchise in Cleveland.
"He not only...
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chris Sale pitched two-hit ball over six innings and struck out six Monday as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Cincinnati Reds 1-0.
Sale allowed a one-out double to Zack Cozart in the first inning and a single to Cozart leading off the fourth. Sale, who had allowed eight runs in 7 1-3 innings in his previous two starts, is moving to the rotation following...

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs in less than four innings, including a long leadoff homer by Brandon Phillips, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Cleveland Indians 9-2 Saturday.
Phillips drove the fifth pitch of the game out of the ballpark and into the Arizona desert. The shot far beyond the left-field fence was tracked down by a youngster in a stretch of sand near a roadway.
