In fact, of the 30 teams in the league, all but a handful of them remain within striking distance of a playoff spot. Of course, this is largely thanks to the newly added second Wild Card spot.With that being said, there is still a lot of baseball left to be...

First-year manager Price piloting Reds through adversity with masterful moves

CINCINNATI -- That the Cincinnati Reds are hovering near the top of the National League Central standings at the All-Star break is of seismic proportions. Or, in the vernacular, "Who'da thunk it?"

Reds ready to face injury challenges head-on

CINCINNATI -- There is no "pity party" going on in the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse, not in the manager's office, not in the clubhouse proper, not in the training room, not in the dugout and not on the field.
