Ranking the 2014 year-end roster: Part one

The 2014 season may have ended with some disappointment with Cleveland missing the playoffs, but finishing with an 85-77 record and being in contention until the last weekend of the season is not all that bad. Before looking forward to 2015, first IBI is going to look back on 2014. Personally, that starts for me with these roster rankings before transitioning to the IBI Awards next...

Reds can't stay with the status quo anymore

CINCINNATI (AP) After their offense went flat in the closing weeks of the 2013 season that ended with a wild card loss in Pittsburgh, the Reds decided they had to change. No, not the players. The batting coach. And the manager. They fired Dusty Baker after a third playoff appearance in four seasons - their best stretch of success since the days of the Big Red Machine - and figured...

Game 162: Reds 4 Pirates 1

To put it bluntly, this game was every stupid thing that I was afraid it was going to be. Gerrit Cole was phenomenal for the Pirates; he got into a little trouble in the first inning in part due to a Brandon Phillips bloop single, escaped the jam with only one run allowed, and then cruised through the next six innings without breaking a sweat. He was painting with 98 mph fastballs...

CINCINNATI -- It was the last day of school and with the way the season went the Cincinnati Reds were like most kids -- glad the school year is over. Before Sunday's final game against the Pittsburgh Pirates most of the Reds were tossing items into large cardboard boxes in front of their lockers, mail and equipment and trinkets that they had gathered over the course of the embarrassing...

Votto takes fourth batting pratice, but return uncertain

Joey Votto has taken batting practice four straight days without any problem. That does not mean he will be activated. "I don't have any idea," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He's doing all the work. He ran the bases (Friday) and hit. But I'm not any closer to answering that question. I'm just going to leave it at that. Anything else would be speculative...

Todd Frazier having career year on basepath

Todd Frazier's season is Exhibit A in Reds manager Bryan Price's increased emphasis on the running game. Frazier stole his 20th base Friday night. The last two years he stole a total of nine -- three in 2012 and six last year. Frazier sets goals for himself each year. Stealing 20 was not among them -- his top total as a professional was 17 in 2011 at Triple-A Louisville...

Reds take 2-1 lead in four-game series vs. Cardinals

If there was any doubt that Bryan Price was confident in September call-up Ryan Dennick, it was erased Wednesday. Price called in the 27-year-old left-hander with two on and two outs in a two-run game to face a hitter more than capable of tying the game with a single swing in first baseman Matt Adams. Dennick got Adams to fly out to left, ending the inning and getting the ball...

CINCINNATI -- When fans talk about Billy Hamilton, the conversation almost always is about his flashing feet on the basepaths -- his stolen bases and his warp speed as he races from first to home in world class time.
