Hannahan closing in on return to Reds

CINCINNATI -- Jack Hannahan watched what Ryan Ludwick went through last year and took note. Ludwick tore a labrum in his right shoulder on Opening Day and it took a diligent rehab process for him return to the Reds lineup in August.

Ludwick working to get back into form

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Ryan Ludwick is a man with a plan that has a ban: I won't slide head first into third base, or any base, any time soon." That's what he did on Opening Day last season and it wrecked his season and wrecked any offensive production for the team in left field. The head first slide obliterated his right shoulder. It required surgery and he didn't play...

Second Place Wins a Set of Steak Knives, and Third Place is ‘You’re Fired’

Another day, another lackluster performance in which the Reds came out flat against a team that had nothing left to play for, another Reds loss. And something I see here tonight, is that the Reds clean-up hitter with a hole in his bat has the audacity to call out the fan base.
