Walks haunting Reds

CINCINNATI -- A walk proved decisive in the Reds' loss at Pittsburgh on Thursday. Nine walks were too many for even an 8-run lead on Friday. The Reds blew an 8-0 lead Friday to Toronto, losing 14-9. The Blue Jays led all of baseball in runs scored in May and, while their production has been down this month, they still own a lineup that shouldn't be given any extra help getting on...

Manny Parra: Brewers Bust Becomes Reliable Reds Reliever

Manny Parra was a phenom-turned-bust with the Brewers. The top-rated pitching prospect in the Milwaukee system in 2008, he battled injuries and inconsistency while logging a 5.12 ERA over five tumultuous seasons. Then he signed with Cincinnati. Parra has been a reliable reliever since joining the Reds 15 months ago. The 31-year-old southpaw appeared in […]

Pirates 6, Reds 5

The Pirates came darn close to blowing yet another lead and losing in heartbreaking fashion. I don’t know if I could have taken another one of those, but thankfully, we didn’t have to. Ike Davis got it started with a grand slam for his first Bucco blast — a BROKEN BAT blast: But Francisco Liriano ran out of gas in the eighth, and Clint Hurdle (working with a short bullpen...

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 of a...
