Todd Frazier's season is Exhibit A in Reds manager Bryan Price's increased emphasis on the running game. Frazier stole his 20th base Friday night. The last two years he stole a total of nine -- three in 2012 and six last year. Frazier sets goals for himself each year.

It’s time for the Cincinnati Reds to play their call ups

The Cincinnati Reds 2014 season is over. While they aren’t eliminated yet, they are eliminated. Last night they lost 14-5 to the New York Mets. The team is 11 games back of first place.

I thought Jay Bruce was a lock for 30/100 not dirty undies. Thirty-hundo not dirty-undies!

Mesoraco, who had a breakout season. And, here, Jay Bruce is less appetizing...

Frazier 'not worried' over home run shortage

CINCINNATI -- Todd Frazier hears the whisperings, the all-knowing opinions of why he has hit only one home run in the three weeks since the All-Star break. "He shouldn't have participated in the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game because it messes up a hitter's swing," they say. They say it because Frazier had 19 home runs at the All-Star break and now, three weeks...

Marlins Lose On Home-Plate Collision Review; MLB To Look Over Rule (Video)

Despite recent adversity, Frazier believes best is yet to come

CINCINNATI -- For most of this season, Todd Frazier's song when he walked toward the batter's box has been Frank Sinatra's 'Fly Me to the Moon.'
