Found November 06, 2012 on Red Hot Mama:
It sounds like something we’d host here at RHM, but actually, it’s the Louisville Slugger Museum who is putting together a class of 10 of the hottest baseball players throughout history. They’ve already selected 7 inductees, and 3 more positions will be filled based on fan votes. Guys already on the list include: Lou Gehrig Jim Palmer Ted Williams Red King Kelly Jackie Robinson Roberto Clemente Derek Jeter Reds or former Reds you can vote for to fill in the remaining 3 spots: Johnny Bench Ken Griffey, Jr. Barry Larkin Brandon Phillips Joey Votto There’s a lot of hot right there, and I don’t know hot pick just 3. Or I could write someone in. There’s no real point thought; there’s no way Jason Romano would win. Since you’re voting today anyway, why not put a plug in for your favorite Red? They don’t take your name, so even if you’re a dude, voting won’t reveal your man-crush. (Everyone knows already anyway.)

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...

ESPN's Schoenfield suggests a move to help the Reds win it all

Who is it? ESPN Sweetspot blogger David Schoenfield recently published an article titled Five crazy free-agent ideas in which he explores five scenarios with five different teams and a number of free agents that he thinks make complete sense. I clicked on it, not necessarily expecting to find the Reds on the list, but lo and behold there they were at no. 3 on his list. Cincinnati...

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...

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...

Monday news and notes

Usually Monday is for the Season in Review, but over the weekend my hard drive began to fail in my main computer. That leaves me stuck with an old laptop that doesn’t have access to any of my programs or data for the time being, so that is going to be pushed back a day until I get my old computer back up and running.

The Value of Elite Speed, Measured in Wins

Apropos largely of nothing — except his notable performance, I suppose, in this past Saturday’s Arizona Fall League Rising Stars Game — I’ve dedicated considerable attention to Reds (now) outfield prospect Billy Hamilton in these electronic pages over the last 48 hours. Hamilton, because he has a tool (in this case, speed) considered by many to be generational, has produced...
