He also was part of a double play with the right fielder. ----- On Tuesday, the Javelinas ran their winning streak to four and their record to a league-best 15-9 by defeating the Phoenix Desert Dogs by a score of 13-6.

Jay Bruce wins Silver Slugger

Jay Bruce prepares to swing and hit a home run to tie the game.Tonight, Reds’ right fielder Jay Bruce was one of three NL outfielders awarded the 2012 Silver Slugger award. Though Bruce can go through some frustratingly long stretches where it seems like he can’t do anything but strike out (he had 155 Ks this year), those are more than overbalanced by the earth-rending tears...

Keith Law ranks Reds free agents

There isn't a lot of star power available in the free agent market this time around, but there are plenty of quality role players. Keith Law of ESPN.com recently noted this while compiling his list of the Top 50 Free Agents in the 2012-13 class. Three players who were members of last year's Reds squad landed in the rankings and here is a look at what Law had to say about...

2012 Season in Review: Tony Cingrani

Tony Cingrani came into the 2012 season as a much talked about and divisive in both fan and scouting circles.  He had come off one of the most impressive statistical debuts that the Pioneer League has seen in the last 25 years. The Reds took the domination of the Pioneer League as a sign that Cingrani was ready to head directly to High-A ball and the California League. In his first...

State of the Farm – Third Base

Third base is a position that the Reds are seemingly undecided on moving forward. With Scott Rolen now likely out of the picture, the spot is open at the Major League level. Todd Frazier has a chance to fill the position, but he can also play left field where the Reds have an opening as well. The Reds have plenty of depth at the third base position. Henry Rodriguez is the closest...

Thursday news and notes

The news from yesterday was that the Reds hope to acquire a closer so they can move Chapman to the rotation. I have never understood the idea that you need someone to come in to close before making Chapman a starter. Having a quality starter is a lot more valuable than having an elite closer. It is a lot easier to find a decent closer than it is to find even an average starter, much...

On this date in Reds history: Cincinnati voters shoot down plans to build new stadium

November 7th, 1939 - Fresh off winning their first National League pennant in 20 years, a vote on a $6 million bond to help fund a new 60,000-seat stadium is executed. The results? 81,941 Cincinnatians against and 46,955 Cincinnatians in favor. The plan was led by the Build Greater Cincinnati Committee with architect Charles Koch at the helm. In addition to the construction of...

Jay Bruce wins first career Silver Slugger

Major League Baseball handed out some hardware on Thursday night and one Red was among the ones who received a share. Jay Bruce earned his first career Silver Slugger Award after claiming the title as the National League's top offensive right fielder. The 25-year old produced a slash line of .252/.327/.514 with 34 HR and 99 RBI in a team-leading 155 games this season. He...

Aroldis Chapman and whether the value of a closer is equivilent to that of a starting pitcher

Reports are that the Cincinnati Reds have not decided whether they plan to use closer Aroldis Chapman in the same role or use him as a starter in 2013. Chapman thrived in that role in 2012, leading the Reds to a NL Central division title with 38 saves, a 1.51 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP while striking out 122 batters in 71 2/3 IP. Though he certainly has proven to have the makeup of being...

The Value of Elite Speed, Measured in Wins

Jocketty: Reds could trade shortstop this winter

Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has been popular among his peers at this week’s GM meetings in Indian Wells, Calif. He has what many of them need: shortstops. The Reds have two talented shortstops on their 40-man roster: Zack Cozart, 27, and Didi Gregorius, 22. Both are far away from free agency, meaning one could be dealt to fill a more immediate need. In fact, Jocketty...
