Major League Baseball has again released the current count of votes for the All-Star Game, and not a whole lot has changed since last week. Joey Votto is still running away with the start at first; in fact, he’s extended his lead. He’s now got 2.5 times as many votes and the second-place vote getter Lance Berkman of the Cardinals. Frankly, that kind of sucks. Joey Votto was the best National League first baseman before and couldn’t get voted in. Now suddenly there’s a vacuum of NL 1Bers and … [visit site to read more]

Game 60: Indians 1, Reds 7

Despite trailing early on, the Reds came back to win authoritatively last night. They beat the Indians in the first game of the series, 1-7. Johnny Cueto started and ended for the Reds. In 9.0 innings pitched he allowed 1 run on 6 hits and 0 walks. Damn. The bench all had the dreaded flu-like symptoms last night, so the line-up looked a little funny and not a single pinch-hitter...

Cueto Dominant in Reds Victory

The Reds and Indians faced off in the first game of a three game series in the battle of the Ohio Cup.

Sick Reds battling stomach virus

Some Reds players dipped into a pot of chicken soup in the dining area of the clubhouse and filled their bowls, trying to get some food gentle on the stomach. Others went into the trainer's room to get more intravenous fluids. Old remedies and new ones, too, were used for a team nearly flatted by a stomach virus. The worst seemed to be behind the Reds heading into their game...

They just couldn't share many high-fives and hugs because of a flu bug making its way around the clubhouse. And that's what made...

Who's hot and who's not in June

There appears to be no way to stop this guy from hitting. After experiencing a great month of May record-wise, the Redlegs (32-27) have fallen on tougher times in June. They've lost four out of six on their current homestand and have allowed the Pittsburgh Pirates to gain a share of the division lead. The blame for this recent downward spiral can be spread across the...

Derek Lowe has no love for Dusty Baker

Jordan Bastian has the story following the Indians’ loss in Cincinnati. Apparently Derek Lowe had some choice words about Reds manager Dusty Baker- “Dusty will deny it. It has everything to do with him. You can go ask him. He’ll deny it like he has no idea. They’ve been trying to do this [stuff] for years. I’d always come up with men on base. To say it didn’t come from...
