Red Hot Mama:
Joey Votto is clearly running away with the NL’s first base All Star position. So much so, that I think it’s easy to lose perspective. Here’s a couple facts to help increase the resolution on this number:
Since last week’s tally, Votto has received over 1.3 million votes. The second-place vote getter has only 1.5 million votes for the entirety of the voting.
Votto has about 3 times as many votes as the second-lace finisher, but he also has more votes … [visit site to read more]
BEST OF MAXIM
CINCINNATI If one Cincinnati Reds fan wants to start an argument with another Cincinnati Reds fan, all one need do is say two words: "Drew Stubbs."
And the other fan will say, "Them's fightin' words."
Drew Stubbs is a buzzword in Reds Country and there is little middle ground one is either for him or against him. Yay or nay. Thumbs up or thumbs down...
The going has been tough lately for no. 54
"What goes around comes around." "You reap what you sew." "You get what you deserve."
These are all ways to express a belief held by many that karma really does exist. Good deeds and actions breed future good, while bad ones breed, well you know the rest.
Given the adversity that Aroldis Chapman...
Aroldis Chapman’s ninth save of the season might have been the most controversial – because of something he did after it was over.
Once the Cincinnati Reds closer struck out Martin Maldonado to clinch a 4-3 victory over Milwaukee Tuesday night, Chapman took two somersaults toward catcher Ryan Hanigan in an apparent celebration.
The Reds reacted with concern – that Chapman might...
Aroldis Chapman has struggled a bit lately, blowing two saves while giving up two runs and a home run in each of his last two appearances. He was obviously pretty happy to finally nail down a save again on Tuesday night. So he celebrated the way many of us probably wish we could: by doing a couple of somersaults on the field. His manager, Dusty Baker, later disapproved of his pitcher...
Kyle Lotzkar Curveball
While I have done these kinds of articles in the past, from here on out I plan to have one every Monday for a different player. Today I will be looking at Kyle Lotzkar. He has split his time between Bakersfield and Pensacola this year with these stats:
Dr. Henry Heimlich presented Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier with a life-saving award on Tuesday before a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Frazier used the Heimlich maneuver on a choking restaurant customer during a series in Pittsburgh in late May. Heimlich, who moved to Cincinnati in the 1960s, went on the field and gave Frazier a certificate and a plaque for saving...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds activated center fielder Drew Stubbs from the disabled list before the opening game of a series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, restoring their everyday lineup to full strength. Stubbs went on the DL June 15 after pulling muscles in his left side during a swing. He played a three-game rehab stint at Class-A Dayton over the weekend without problem...

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Reds manager Dusty Baker has made sure that closer Aroldis Chapman won't be doing any more somersaults after finishing a game.
Chapman did a pair of forward rolls after striking out Martin Maldonado to complete a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. Chapman has been struggling lately, and celebrated his ninth save with somersaults toward home...
Ryan Ludwick was one of the lone bright spots Wednesday.
The Reds went for the brooms to sweep away the Milwaukee
Brewers in a matinee at GABP Wednesday afternoon, but fell behind early and
could never mount a rally and will be forced to settle for two out of three. Cincinnati
remains eight games over .500 at 41-33. To the details….
As entertaining as it may have been to fans, Reds head coach Dusty Baker was less than pleased with pitcher Aroldis Chapman’s somersaults to celebrate a save after striking out the Brewers’ Martin Maldonado to secure a 4-3 win.
Baker said he knew Chapman was excited to get the save after blowing his last attempt by giving up a game-winning home run, but asked the pitcher to express...
Bronson Arroyo took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on
Tuesday night before giving up a three-run lead, but Drew Stubbs
led off the bottom half with a homer, sending the Cincinnati Reds
to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Here is a post that shows Aroldis Chapman doing two celebratory somersaults toward home plate after recording the final out of the game. Predictably, Dusty Baker gave a "we don't play that way" quote, and speculation abounds: will Joey Votto get a pitch in his ribs in retaliation? Will the Reds fine Chapman? How many absurd columnists will write screeds about how Chapman...
