Kivel throw fastball, not articulate well

Seems that the Reds have secured their 10th rounder, Jeremy Kivel. He tops out at 94-95 and is recently recovered from an ACL injury. He signed for 500k, 3 times what his estimated price would have been. Let's all hope to see him earn that price and find a home in our bullpen soon!

Her name is Dallas

And she's finally opening up to Reds fans and embracing our city. Let's welcome her with some replies about how nice the kitchen looks or maybe thank her for getting those Clif bars you like so much at the grocery last night.

Adrian Cardenas just got DFA'd.

He came off the A's 40-man roster to make room for Jonny Gomes, no less. Someone tell me why this guy isn't as good as Wilson Valdez? And that really is him playing piano.

The Reds have slightly less money to spend!

Looks like the Reds will have to pay rent for GABP due to the insufficient return on the stadium tax. This will total 2.2 Million dollars over the course of the next 5 years. May I be the first to say, "THE RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH!"

The Reds signed outfielder David Cook, according to Eddy (on Twitter). The 29-year-old has a .258/.369/.468 line in eight minor league seasons.

"From the Reds: RHP Micah Owings, who on 8/16 was designated for assignment when the Reds signed No. 1 draft pick C Yasmani Grandal, cleared waivers and has accepted an outright assignment to Class AAA Louisville…Owings began the season with the Reds and went 3-2, 5.40 in 22 relief apps before he was optioned to Louisville on 7/21." -teh Fay

"The Reds have agreed to terms with Dominican shortstop Olivel Florentino for $250,000, pending the approval of Major League Baseball. Florentino was not among the 40 Dominican players who had to register with MLB prior to July 2, so his contract will not become official until MLB completes its investigation into his age and identity. Florentino, who at 16 is 6-foot-1, 155 pounds, is an offensive-oriented righthanded hitter." -Ben Badler, Baseball America

CINCINNATI Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips spent Thursday morning in Family Court battling one of his baby mamas, a local woman with whom he has a 4-year-old daughter. He has another child with a woman in Buffalo. Phillips, who was selected as a reserve in tomorrow's MLB All-Star Game, and Danielle Daluisio had a casual relationship in 2006 that resulted in a daughter, Micole Malia Phillips. Phillips has seen the child a total of five days in four years according to Daluisio's lawyer, Lynne Gold-Bikin, chairwoman of Weber Gallagher's family-law division. Thursday's hearing set dates in August for a child-support hearing and November for a custody hearing. Daluisio, who receives $5,000 per month from Phillips for the child, is seeking a significant increase in child support from the baller, who signed a 4-year, $27 million contract with the Reds in 2008. Daluisio, 27, who works in school administration and has an internship with the NCAA, has primary custody of the child and seeks to establish more strict visitation conditions for Phillips, 29, such as preventing him from exposing the child to other women, according to Gold-Bikin. An attorney for Phillips declined to comment on the situation, and a Reds spokesman did not get back to us.

-Seth Blair on playing with Mike Leake at ASU - "It's given me all the confidence in the world," Blair said. "It really has. To see Mike go out and do what he's done, it's just been amazing. I've been really close to him. I've stayed in touch with him throughout the season so far. And to see what he's done, it hasn't surprised me because he's definitely a great player. He knows how to pitch, and he's taught me a lot of different things that have helped me succeed this year as a pitcher for Arizona state, and hopefully he's going to teach me a little more this offseason."

PEJ/PES game goes 24-15

Alonso got his 8th ejection after losing any BA he might have earned this month, whilst securing Votto at first-base. Boxenburger is looking more and more likely to be the 1/10 that doesn't make it into MLB after the Future Stars game.

Did anyone else notice that we drafted a Matt Valaika this year? I don't know if he got signed, but It's not just the name that interests me. He grew up and when to college at the same place Chris did. Bret and Aaron, I know. You guys probably knew this already.
