Reds hoping to continue recent Wrigley dominance

Wrigley Field hasn't provided much of a home-field advantage the last two seasons for the Chicago Cubs against the Cincinnati Reds.

MLB Week 3 – What, Me Worry?

by: Dan HowardStaff WriterWhen I was a kid, I hated it when the Reds had an off day, now that I’m an old geezer, I think I enjoy a day off as much as the players. The first eleven games of the 2014 season, Cincinnati scored a mere 28 runs. Since Sunday, the Reds have scored 30 runs. No need to worry, I think the offense has figured it out.The late Joe Nuxhall frequently spoke of...

Dugout Digest – an uninspiring day

This was the first day of the 2014 season that really ended up being, for lack of a better word, crappy. Of the nine games on the schedule, two were rainouts and three were decided by five or more runs. So, we had four close-ish games, and two of those only became close because of ninth inning rallies. Well, every day can’t be a winner. Here’s to a full slate of games today....

While none of those players are stars, they should remain contributors for years to come. The Reds have a solid farm system, but only one prospect (Stephenson) has the potential to be...
