Reds Minor Leagues:
I will update this post in the afternoon to talk more about the Pioneer League Top 20 Prospects list from Baseball America which is supposed to come out today. My guess is that these Billings Mustangs make the list: Robert Stephenson, Jesse Winker and Ismael Guillon. I am also interested to see if anything is said about some other guys in the chat (Seth Mejias-Brean, Carlos Sanchez, Dan Langfield and Drew Cisco). I imagine the order would be as I listed for where the Reds guys will fall on the list, with Stephenson and Winker likely finding themselves inside the Top 10.
John Sickels took a look at Daniel Corcino over at MinorLeagueBall.com. The site is also featuring a brand new look as SBNation went from their old format to the new SB United format. There is quite a bit to the article, and I am in agreement with John on a lot of it, so go give it a read. Here is a quick scouting report from the article:
The scouting reports reflect what the numbers show. Corcino has a live arm wit...
BEST OF MAXIM
Bruuuuuce appears to be levitating.
With the only thing left to achieve in the regular season being the #1 seed, the Reds (94-62) looked to claim a series victory over the Brewers (80-76) in an afternoon affair, which also happened to be the last regular season home game of 2012. Don't worry though. There will be playoff baseball in the Queen City.
CINCINNATI The Johnny Cueto Angst is over or at least it should be.
For a period of time when Cueto was in the throes of a three-game losing streak, bogged down on 17 victories, the concern of Cincinnati Reds fans was palpable.
He's fatigued. He's pitching too many innings. He needs to trim his dreadlocks. He should abandon that Luis Tiant back-to-the-hitter twist in...
It is easy to forget that Mat Latos is still just 24-years-old. It is also easy, apparently, to overlook how impressive he has been since the second half of June.Latos started off his tenure in Cincinnati pretty miserably, with a 5.20 ERA in 14 starts. He was getting hit rather hard, and his home run rate escalated. He allowed 16 homers in less than a half season’s worth of starts...
Dioner Navarro drives in the Reds’ first two runs of the night.The Cincinnati Reds won the opener of their final home series of the 2012 season, defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2.
Johnny Cueto started and pitched better than he has in a while. Cueto lasted 7 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits and no walks while striking out 5. He weathered some concern over a potential leg issue...
Manager Dusty Baker was back to work Wednesday, but he did not manage in the Cincinnati Reds' 8-1 loss to the Brewers. Baker spent Wednesday afternoon in his office at Great American Ball Park. He is scheduled to join the team Monday in St. Louis for the final three games of the season and resume managing. "That's the plan," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty...
The Cincinnati Reds appear to have the right pitcher in the right ballpark as they start their final road trip of the year.
Homer Bailey has never lost at PNC Park, where Pittsburgh Pirates 16-game winner A.J. Burnett has dropped his last three outings heading into Friday night's opener of a three-game set.
The NL Central champion Reds (94-62) remain in a tight race with Washington...
The Reds have already clinched and may be better off with the #2 seed than with the #1 seed. Meanwhile, the Brewers have to have a really spectacular showing the rest of the season to have a chance to sniff the second wildcard bid to the post season.
And it showed last night.
Bronson Arroyo had his worst outing in a long, long time. He worked 6.0 innings and allowed 4 runs (earned...
Last week we heard Dusty Baker was transported to a Chicago area hospital after experiencing a couple medical issues. Initially, reports were that the 63 year old manager for the Cincinnati Reds was suffering from pneumonia. That was incorrect. Subsequent reports said he was just having issues with an irregular heartbeat. That was true. What wasn’t [...]
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Slumping Todd Frazier tied the game with a two-out homer in the ninth inning, and Dioner Navarro followed with an RBI triple that sent the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory Thursday and dealt a major setback to the Milwaukee Brewers' playoff chances.
The Brewers slipped four games behind idle St. Louis for the final NL wild card with six games left.
Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker suffered a “mini-stroke”
on Friday as he was being discharged from a Chicago hospital, reports Mark Sheldon of MLB.com:
Reds manager Dusty Baker

With two outs in the ninth inning the Reds had yet to cross the plate in their regular season home finale Thursday. Three batters later they came away with a 2-1 victory over the Brewers for their 51st win this season at Great American Ball Park. Todd Frazier got the scoring started with his 19th HR. Dioner Navarro ended the contest with a walk-off triple.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL's top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they'll be without their manager for the rest of the week.
The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started...
The Pirates open a three-game series with Cincinnati on Friday night at PNC Park. Right-hander A.J. Burnett will be on the hill for the Bucs. The Reds will toss righty Homer Bailey.
