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...
Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker has responded to what Derek Lowe <a ... [visit site to read more]
Negotiations continue with several of the team's 42 draft picks including first rounder Nick Travieso (14th overall). With that said, there are many draftees who have already signed on the dotted line. Here is an up-to-date list of those players who the Reds have been able to ink to deals so far:
1s (49) Jesse Winker OF Olympia High School (FL)
2 (78) Tanner Rahier...
The Reds continued their winning ways against the Indians last night by winning 3-5. Mat Latos was filling in for a sick Mike Leake, and Latos turned in the kind of performance we’ve been expecting from him from the beginning. Maybe short rest doesn’t give him enough time to put too much pressure on himself.
The Reds go for the sweep of the three-game series...
CINCINNATI Bad and hot blood between Cleveland Indians pitcher Derek Lowe and Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker was spilled and running between clubhouses after Wednesday nights game and before Thursday afternoons game.When Lowe came to bat in the fifth inning Wednesday night, Reds pitcher Mat Latos threw a high-and-tight fastball toward Lowe.It didnt hit him, but it was close...
The clear-cut leader on the Cincinnati Reds is Joey Votto -- nobody with a sane head on their shoulders is going to argue otherwise. The Canadian crusher excels in almost every area both on the field and off. And as ESPN.com analyst Buster Olney points out in the above clip, his teammates look to him intently as a model in how to approach hitting.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto allowed only one runner to reach second base during his second complete game of the season, and Joey Votto hit a two-run homer on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians in the opener of their intrastate series.
Votto's shot in the seventh off left-hander Tony Sipp made it 57 straight games with at...
Brandon Phillips hit one of Cincinnati's three homers and drove in four more runs on Thursday afternoon, leading the ailing Reds to a 12-5 victory and their first three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians since 2008.
Joey Votto and Ryan Ludwick also homered for the Reds, who had a season-high 17 hits.
No surprise that Phillips played a starring role in the sweep. He went 8...
Brandon Phillips helped the Cincinnati Reds get through their illness with another strong game against his former team, hitting a two-run homer and driving in three runs in a 5-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.
Phillips' two-run shot in the seventh inning made it 58 straight games with at least one homer at Great American Ball Park since July 29, the longest...
If Dusty Baker and Derek Lowe didn’t hate each other prior to Wednesday, they do now. During the Indians 5-2 loss to the Reds, Lowe took exception to a Mat Latos fastball that was thrown close to him and he felt was intentional. He was right. Lowe ripped Baker on Wednesday night and Dusty was asked to respond to Lowe’s comments on Thursday morning. He fired back incredibly hard...
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...
I know slumps are a part of baseball, but how bad has it been lately?
It’s getting to the point where I have random buddies who know I’m a Jay Bruce fan that text me to make fun of the poor fella (and me). One friend was nice enough to nickname him Jay ’0-fuhr’. Fittingly, I suppose. Bruce was the only Reds player in the lineup to go 0 for the day in not only today’s game...
The Reds (and 21 other teams) had an off-day yesterday. For the Reds, it was their third day off in the last two weeks. It’s like watching baseball in France.
The Red Hot Family used the off-day to catch our local AAA team, the Indianapolis Indians (a Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate). The Indians utterly spanked the Rochester Red Wings (a Washington Nationals affiliate...
Neither the Cincinnati Reds nor New York Mets have a particularly potent offense, though each team's bats have seemed to come alive lately.
Both coming off sweeps that ended recent struggles, the Reds and Mets look to continue their hot hitting in the opener of a three-game set Friday night at Citi Field.
Cincinnati (35-27) sits atop the NL Central largely due to a 3.57 ERA...
With the draft over and it being nearly midseason, I thought it would be the perfect time to bring out an updated Top 10 Prospect list with the new draft picks added.
1. Daniel Corcino – RHP – AA Pensacola
Corcino was the highest rated prospect coming into the season who is still prospect eligible and he has not done anything to change that. He is a 21 year old in AA with a 3...
