Reds Robert Stephenson improving his change up

While watching a start earlier this season on MiLB.tv, I had noticed that Robert Stephenson was throwing his change up a little more often than he had thrown last year. He seemed to have more confident in the pitch, throwing it in several different counts throughout the game. Kourage Kundahl spoke with the right hander a few days ago, looking to get some more information on the...

Dusty Baker Hoping to Return as MLB Manager

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, former manager Dusty Baker is looking to return to the Majors in that capacity. Though he has proven to be excellent in turnaround situations (in San Francisco, Chicago and Cincinnati), Baker has applied for three jobs since the Reds fired him: Seattle, Washington and Detroit — three decidedly non-rebuilding situations. In all three cases...

Two injuries have led to several roster moves on the farm. Another move was also made, but it wasn’t as injury related as the first two.

Reds Aristides Aquino hit by pitch, breaks wrist

I’ve been in touch with several sources and all have heard the same thing, but at this point I have been unable to get any official confirmation from anyone with the Cincinnati Reds or the Dayton Dragons. I do trust my sources that relayed the information to me though, so I’m going forward with publishing it. Last night in Dayton the Reds #12 prospect, Aristides Aquino, was...

Reds’ Billy Hamilton swipes 3 bases off Jon Lester

Jon Lester, the guy who is now looked at as the ace for the Chicago Cubs, the guy who was brought in and signed a $155 million contract, is still without his first win. Not only that, but he has also failed to perform at least a decent pick-off throw to first base. Earlier this […]

Through five innings he already has three stolen...

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (8-7) at Cincinnati Reds (8-8)

It’s been an eventful week in Cincinnati, which nearly reached Peak Reds before being eclipsed by whatever **** the Royals have been doing. Reds manager Bryan Price dropped a 77 f-bomb tirade at one of the Reds beat writers for actually reporting on the team instead of shilling/spreading false information for the team. I only regret that this wasn’t followed by Marty Brennaman...

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton Caught Stealing for First Time This Season

When the Reds called Billy Hamilton up from the minors they knew they were getting a guy that just needed to get on base to become  scoring threat.

Jason Marquis, Strikeout Artist

Guessing the starting pitcher with most strikeouts per nine innings early on in the season should not be too difficult.
