Highs and lows: 'Big O' Ondrusek experiences life of a reliever

When Bryan Price first saw Logan Ondrusek, the epitome of "The Long, Tall Texan," he said to Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty, "I'll bet you at some point in time this kid is going to close games for us. Yeah, I did." There is only one 'Big O' in Cincinnati sports lore, and that's former University of Cincinnati and NBA superstar Oscar...

Thursday's mixed bag of Reds news and notes

Well, Cincinnati's road trip to St. Louis didn't go so well. After taking game one of the series by scoring nine runs in the final inning, the Reds proceeded to get outscored, 15-1, over the next two games of the series. I don't know what it is, but Busch Stadium has been a Bermuda Triangle of sorts for the Reds in the past decade. This last series did nothing to help...

On Wednesday, the Reds placed Marshall on the 15-day disabled list due to shoulder tendinitis. The move was announced just prior to Cincinnati's series finale against the Cardinals. Logan Ondrusek will take Marshall's spot on the roster after...

It’s Opening Day for the Major Leagues!

Ok, so I am actually typing this as I watch the Rangers at Astros on Sunday Night Baseball, so technically, Sunday is “Opening Day”, but today is Opening Day here in Cincinnati. It will be strange waiting for a 4pm first pitch, but I guess we don’t have much of a choice. I will be watching the game from the comfort of my home, eating snacks and hopefully watching win #1 of...

Reds win 4-error game

Last Game Homer Bailey put in another excellent performance, but was denied his fifth win of the season by a blown save at the hands of Logan Ondrusek.

Next Game The Reds have an off-day today. They’re currently...

Happy birthday to Logan Ondrusek

A happy 27th birthday goes to RHP Logan Ondrusek today. And what better way to celebrate than by counting down the last few days before reporting to Spring Training?

Dusty Baker will undoubtedly look toward Ondrusek...
