Cool commercial, and I’m hoping for a decent game out of 2ksports. I can’t stop playing NBA 2k12. I just unlocked the Larry Bird ’84 Celts the other night and I am running the point with Larry Legend. If they got anywhere close to their basketball rendition with the baseball game, then we’re onto something.
This is coming from a guy who understands all about ‘finger mechanics’.
Is it baseball season yet?

Could "Mez" become the first ROY the Reds have had since '99?
Keith Law of ESPN Insider recently published a list of the "Top 20 impact prospects for 2012" (click here to read the piece in its entirety). To no surprise catcher Devin Mesoraco, who's rated by many as the top prospect in the Reds organization, made the cut coming in at no. 2. Here'...
With spring training getting underway this Saturday for our Reds (well, the pitchers and catchers at least. Position players show up next Thursday) , I thought I would take a look at the prospects/minor leaguers who are heading to spring training and talk about their chances to break camp with the big league team. There are 21 players who still have prospect eligibility. Yesterday...
Everybody is talking about who is going to play left field for the Reds Chris Heisey or Ryan Ludwick. I don’t see why we can’t have both of them in the lineup most of the time. It seems Drew Stubbs has been anointed our center fielder no matter what and I don’t understand why. I understand his speed is nice to have in the lineup, but when you can’t get on base consistently...
The ESPN Insider crew consisting of Keith Law, Buster Olney and Jim Bowden have put together a rather interesting series of posts projecting the pecking order of all 30 MLB franchises come 2017. After burning through 30-21 on Tuesday, they took a stab at 20-11 on Wednesday. Cincinnati came nestled in the middle-of-the-pack at no. 16.
Here's the excerpt on what they had...
What are you expecting from Scott Rolen in 2012?
Back in 2009 when the Reds traded for Scott Rolen late in the summer just prior to MLB’s non-waiver trade deadline it left me scratching my head, why did they make this move? In fact, I wasn’t the only one thinking that, many of the so called “experts” were wondering the same thing. The Reds weren’t in contention, neither...
Mat Latos is making the unenviable switch from ultimate pitcher's park to ultimate hitter's park. Will his No. 1 status survive?Click the title to read more.Read more great baseball stuff at The Hardball Times.
Since it’s Valentines Day and everyone is feeling the “love” I thought I’d ask Reds fans out there what do you “love” most about our team?
The thing that I love most about the Reds is listening to them on the radio. I grew up listening to Marty and Joe calling games each night. When I was little we had this old handheld radio that I’d hide under my pillow at night so...
Today marks the 26th birthday for SP Johnny Ortiz Cueto. And while I'm sure he'll receive plenty of birthday wishes from Reds country, I wouldn't expect the folks in St. Louis to be so thoughtful.
After missing nearly a month to begin the 2011 season, the Dominican native turned in a fine effort over the remainder of the year. He stifled opposing hitters with a league...

It was revealed Monday that Kate Upton is the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl, now at newsstands everywhere. Also released yesterday was a 2K Sports online commercial for the upcoming Major League Baseball 2K12 video game, featuring Upton giving "hands on" tips on proper finger mechanics to major league pitchers.
