Shin-Soo Choo of the Reds will probably never hear the end of this one, especially from his teammates. Friday night when his Reds took on the Dodgers, Choo took off from first on a hit and run and paid a little too much attention to Hanley Ramirez of the Dodgers who pretended he had grabbed the ball as it flew by him and into center field. Skip Schumacher also played an integral role in confusing Choo as well. Just enjoy the madness.

Shin-Soo Choo is a career .289 hitter and bats leadoff for a playoff contender. But on Thursday night, he fell victim to two of the oldest tricks in the book, making the Reds-Dodgers game look like something out of "The Bad News Bears."
The trouble for the Cinicannati center fielder started in the fourth inning, as he fell victim to a baserunning ploy by Los Angeles rookie...

With their first pick in the 2013 Amateur Draft, the Reds opted to select Samford University outfielder Phillip Ervin, who has drawn comparisons from some scouts to Pirates five-tool center fielder Andrew McCutchen. Through 32 games in rookie ball, Ervin is certainly living up to the billing.
Ervin, 21, signed with Cincinnati quickly after being drafted and was subsequently...

HOW VERY CLEVER
courtesy of www.thenewstribune.com With all the talk of rookie sensation Yasiel Puig this season the real catalyst for the Dodger success is LA shortstop Hanley Ramirez. He is the unsung hero for the National League West division leaders. Dodgers are 17 and 5 in their last 22 ballgames and leading the division by a half game. It all starts with the team’s best player, Hanley...
Manny Parra was not always my favorite player. Some of you might remember when I said the Reds should give out booze, like they do with 11 strikeout pizza, when Parra and Alfredo Simon pitched in the same game. Parra has been pretty great lately, something I attributed to his Boston Rob like facial hair. After he got out of a late inning jam in the Reds win last night, I made more...
Friday marked Ryan Ludwicks third rehab appearance as he works to get back into the Reds lineup after suffering a separated shoulder on opening day. Big expectations were expected of the lineup with the addition of Shin-Soo Choo atop of it and Brandon Phillips hitting behind him.

Seeing Reds Don’t look now, but the National League Central Division is turning into a three-team powerhouse. St. Louis has been good for what seems like forever; the Pirates have sailed through the first half in recent years, only to walk the plank in the second half with lackluster pitching; and the Cincinnati Reds have [...]
