White Sox watch former manager Guillen from afar

As Ozzie Guillen tried to explain his way out of another mess he created with his mouth, Chicago's new manager felt compassion for his predecessor.

Reds sign Brandon Phillips to six-year $72.5 million contract extension

Brandon Phillips will be a Cincinnati Red for life. No, Cincinnati’s ownership group has not lost their minds. They’re simply doing what championship caliber organizations do day in and day out. And we applaud them for taking one of the most important steps there is to keeping the band together for a good long while. I often sat back and thought about what I was going to write...

Homer lived up to his namesake

Well, that was not the way I wanted the series to start vs. the Cardinals. Homer Bailey had no trouble getting the first two outs in the first and then tossed some slow pitch softball to the next few batters to the tune of 3 home runs and 4 runs total. He did settle down after that but with only three hits in the game, the Reds were not going to come charging back. Bill Bray made...

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Joey Votto tied a career best with four hits and scored the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Chris Heisey's ninth-inning single, capping a comeback from a three-run deficit and leading the Cincinnati Reds over the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Wednesday.

Bailey, Reds Offense Struggle

The Cincinnati Reds (2-2) and the St. Louis Cardinals (4-1) have one of the best rivalries in all of baseball. The two teams met tonight for game one of a three game series here in early April. Homer Bailey took the ball for the Reds matched up against righty Jake Westbrook for the Cardinals. It was a game that saw the Cardinals defeat the Reds by a score of 7-1. Not...

Sale Shows The Goods As Starter

Chris Sale was among the elite relief pitchers last season with the White Sox, throwing 71 tremendous innings in just his second professional season. But the White Sox never saw Sale’s long-term future in the bullpen. The Sale-as-starter project got it’s first MLB regular season test Monday night against the Indians, and the 23-year-old lefty passed with flying colors. Sale breezed...

Ho hum - Aroldis Chapman

The game on Sunday between the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins was exciting. The seesaw game went back and forth as the lead changed hands a couple of times. Jay Bruce hit two homers including the game tying shot off of Heath Bell to tie the game in the ninth. The 37 year old Scott Rolen gave the Reds the victory with a well-placed smash down the third base line that Hanley Ramirez...

Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Petrino show us the coaches in charge aren’t the sharpest

Sometimes it’s great to live in a country where Presidents forget the definition of is, Jimmer becomes a popular baby name, and the closest our children come to learning mathematics begins and ends with Octomom. But, sometimes the best part about tithing (and then some) to Uncle Sam with the prospect of getting peanut shells in return is the ability to somehow link an Arkansas...

Indians' hitting woes continue against Chicago

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Chris Sale won his first career start, limiting Cleveland to one run in 6 2-3 innings and leading the Chicago White Sox to a 4-2 win over the Indians on Monday night. Sale pitched out of Chicago's bullpen the past two seasons but moved into the rotation after ace Mark Buehrle left as a free agent this winter. The left-hander, who had made 79 relief appearances...
