Putting the pressure on Ludwick

The Reds were pretty smart about whom they sent out to Reds Day at King’s Island. The attendees, like Cingrani here, were the ones who performed the best most recently and therefore least likely to draw scorn.Yesterday was Reds day at King’s Island. It seems like every year that they have this event it coincides with the team foundering. To Reds’ fans’ credit, I only saw...

Ludwick no stranger to backing up power

GOODYEAR, Ariz. If Ryan Ludwick ends up batting clean-up in the 2012 Cincinnati Reds lineup he won't be a Stranger in Paradise.
