The Reds benched all their regulars the day after nearly getting no-hit

The Reds nearly got no-hit by Jake Arrieta last night. They ended up “only” getting one-hit. So how did Reds manager Bryan Price respond? HE BENCHED EVERYONE: #Reds lineup: Negron 6 Santiago 5 Rodriguez 8 Ludwick 7 Lutz 9 Hannahan 3 Elmore 4 Barnhart 2 Corcino 1 — John Fay (@johnfayman) September 17, 2014 Well, pretty close to it, anyway.

Johnny Cueto, Good Pitcher Made To Look Even Better

In some ways, this Reds season has turned out exactly like we expected. Way back in February, I worried that Cincinnati wouldn’t have enough offense to compete in 2014, and that the season would be a disappointment. It wasn’t hard to see why, really. Take a team that was 15th in wRC+ in 2013, replace […]

Billy Hamilton set to run away with National League Rookie of the Year Award

Nobody is going to outrun Billy Hamilton on the basepaths. And it would seem as though nobody is going to catch him in the National League Rookie of the Year race either.Entering Monday, the switch-hitting outfielder sat in the proverbial driver's seat to become the first Cincinnati Reds player to win the honor since Scott Williamson accomplished the feat in 1999.Although he...

Reds Injury Update: Dylan Axelrod may be done for season

After missing Saturday night's start, Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Dylan Axelrod's strained oblique looks to be serious enough to cause him to miss the rest of the season.  He exited his previous start after recording just one out before injury.  Rookie David Holmberg started in his place and looks to remain in his spot in the rotation until season's end. Axelrod...

Cincinnati Reds Minor League All-Star Team

This is not the Cincinnati Reds official All-Star Team or Awards that are handed out at Redsfest each year. This is my own opinion on the best guy at each position for the 2014 season. This is not a prospect list and prospects don’t get any extra nod over a player who may not be as highly ranked. Levels played at, defense and even park factors are applied in my weighing of the...

Cincinnati Reds David Holmberg continues his turn around

After a very rough start to the 2014 season at the big league level where his ERA was 18.56 in the first two starts David Holmberg has put together three straight good appearances. The first was as a reliever where he tossed a shutout inning of work. It was a good sign as he had never had an appearance, over three previous starts in his career, where he hadn’t given up at least...

Midwest foes aplenty for Reds in recently unveiled 2015 schedule

The 2015 regular season schedule was unveiled for the Reds today, and aside from Cincinnati hosting the All-Star Game, the slate doesn't exactly boast the same Interleague buzz as it has in the past.Next year, Bryan Price's club will get the opportunity to stay a little closer to home (as far as Interleague play goes) with trips to Kansas City, Chicago and Detroit instead...

What Will Reds Walt do?

Joey Votto Reds – Photo Credit – Keith Allison The Cincinnati Reds are about to approach the most crucial offseason since Walt Jocketty took the helm as the general manager in 2008. The big question that Cincinnati fans are asking, what will Walt do? Currently the Reds have four starting pitchers who are only under control through the end of the 2015 season. Staff ace Johnny...

Anybody Want Dat Dude?

The Cincinnati Reds should absolutely trade Brandon Phillips this winter—if they can. Their pitching staff is barreling toward financial derailment and Phillips is set to earn nearly $40 million over the next three seasons. He'll be 36 when his current deal is up. He can still play a pretty gnarly second base, and his salar​y—although it will clearly hurt the Reds—might...

CINCINNATI — Retiring Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig knew it was coming, just as any hitter facing the Cincinnati Reds knows a fastball is coming from Aroldis Chapman. Selig was in Great American Ball Park Friday night and held a media conference to field questions. As he stood at the podium, he smiled and looked out toward the nearly filled room and said, “I can probably guess...
