Which Reds starters have the top groundball rates?

To win a baseball game a team needs to score more runs than the opposing team. Everyone knows that. The easiest way to score a run is by hitting a home run. It only requires one event, unlike every other way to score which requires at least two. Pitchers that tend to limit home runs also tend to be successful.

Who will the Cincinnati Reds call up in September?

September is approaching and one of the strange things about baseball is that when it rolls around the rosters expand. No other sport operates like that and it’s a rather confusing rule.

Who will get the call to start for the Reds on Thursday?

With the postponement of the Reds and Rockies game over the weekend, it set up a situation where the Reds are going to need another starting pitcher for the game on Thursday at home against the Braves.
