Three runs at least would have been enough offense to get them a win as they lost for the ninth time in 10 games, 2-1 in 15 innings to Arizona. It...

Rank Relief: The pinnacle may have been reached

We may have witnessed the worst relief performance possible.  Forget Aroldis Chapman, the Reds just need Jonathan Broxton back.  JJ Hoover has been good as a reliable bullpen arm an has worked out of plenty of jams.  Tonight he put himself in one and then decidedly did not work himself out of.  He came in to close with a one run lead after Brandon Phillips helped the Reds get...

Closer Report

It was all fine and dandy and then Roldy Chapman had to go and jump in front of a speeding bullet.  It caused the first waiver wire riot of the year.  Trick is, who to add?  Everybody jumped on the J.J. Hoover train and I don't blame them.  He seems like the only real healthy choice, but have you seen him in ST? He looks god awful, like he is throwing with the losing end...
