Ending a hiatus

After a brief hiatus from all things related to the Cincinnati Reds–and can you blame a guy after the brutal ending to 2012 and the wasted 2013–I delved back into Reds news this week. As is so often the case with the Reds under General Manager Walt Jocketty, nothing happens until it’s happened. No one saw the Mat Latos and Shin-S00 Choo trades coming. And just like both of...

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds have reinstated outfielder Ryan Ludwick from the 60-day disabled list before their game Monday against the Chicago Cubs. Ludwick has been out since opening day when he tore cartilage in his right shoulder during a head-first slide into third base against the Los Angeles Angels. Ludwick had shoulder surgery and couldn't swing for three months...

Making room for Ludwick and other DL guys

A few familiar names are back on the Reds’ active roster at last, putting pressure on some different people for a change. Ryan Hanigan came off the DL on Friday. He’d been out since July 11 with a left wrist sprain. To make room for Hanigan, they put Corky Miller on the DL with a “right quadriceps contusion” or, in other words, one of our heroes sustained a slight bruise...

The Reds will activate left fielder Ryan Ludwick from the disabled list on Monday in time for their game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. To make room for Ludwick on the 25-man roster, outfielder Derrick Robinson will be sent to Triple-A Louisville for the next couple of weeks.

Sweet grabs by Robinson & Heyward

There were two sweet defensive plays to end games on Monday night. The spectacular home run saving catch, followed by a quick juggling act, was made by Cincinnati's Derrick Robinson. The Reds center fielder pulled back Jeff Francoeur's drive for the final out to secure Bronson Arroyo's shutout in an 11-0 rout of the host San Francisco Giants. Your browser does not support...

Lincecum rocked in his first start since no-hitter, Giants fall to Reds in series opener

Tim Lincecum got shelled, Bronson Arroyo was brilliant, and the Reds scored in each of the first seven innings on their way to route the Giants 11-0 in the first game of the series. It didn’t take long for the Reds to end Lincecum’s bid for another no-hitter, as Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a double, and Derrick Robinson followed it up with a single. Lincecum struck out...

Reds 11, Giants 0

June Swoon? Giants struggles continue in July as they fall to the Reds

Mike Kickham was rocked early and often, and the San Francisco offense staggered yet again, as the Giants fell to the Reds 8-1 in a rain-shortened series opener. Kickham got off to a solid start, retiring the first three Reds in a row on two strikeouts and a fly out, but things quickly fell apart for the right-handed rookie. Brandon Phillips singled to lead off the bottom of the...

Cincinnati Reds: A family feud in left field

I hopped on a blog website a couple days ago, and one of the first posts I read was “Xavier Paul: Why is he still here?” Derrick Robinson might be one of the fastest guys on the Reds. His speed has helped turn many single hits, into doubles. Then, in the third game of the most recent series against the Cubs, he went 2-4 with a run, a double and  a homer that brought in three...

Reds shake things up for Game 2 vs St. Louis

CINCINNATI Shaking things up isnt something that comes easily to Dusty Baker. The Reds manager will stick to his guns and his guys. Its a trust thing, a belief that theyll work out any issues theyve got while playing through them. Even Baker has his limits, though. Following a pair of lopsided losses, one against Colorado and one against St. Louis on Friday night, and the teams...

Dugout Digest - tragedy mars triumph

Monday was supposed to be a day celebrating the achievements of one of baseball's most figures, Jackie Robinson. And when the Red Sox beat the Rays 3-2 on Patriots Day to kick off a day of baseball, it was expected that the rest of the day would follow suit. Then, the nightmarish bombing at the Boston Marathon happened, and everything took on a different meaning. Sports didn...

Should baseball retire Larry Doby's number?

Theyve retired the number 42 from baseball, and rightfully so because it was the number worn by Jackie Robinson, the first African American permitted to play major league baseball. So why havent they retired the number 14 worn by a famous baseball player who made his name in Ohio? And, no, it isnt Pete Rose. It was worn by Cleveland Indians outfielder Larry Doby, a man who had the...

Bud Selig reportedly working to increase amount of African-American players in MLB

The amount of African-American players on Major League Baseball opening day rosters this season was historically low. Only 7.7% of the players on all 30 MLB rosters are African-American, which is the lowest percentage since the Boston Red Sox became the final team to integrate their roster in 1959. Bud Selig is hoping to change that in the near future. According to USA Today Sports...
