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. Here’s what Ryan Ludwick had to say after the game: “Coming over here, I heard about how big a baseball...

Video: Ryan Ludwick calls out Reds fans for lack of intensity

The mood around the Reds clubhouse was not good following Cincinnati's 1-0 defeat to the New York Mets on Wednesday. And rightfully so.

The game featured the coming out party, if you will, for Billy Hamilton who stole four bases in his first MLB start. Despite those four stolen bases and the fact that he was on base five times in the game, he scored only twice. That...
