Choo's left-handed complements

Just as a reminder, Shin-soo Choo cannot hit left-handed pitching- which gives us an indication of just how talented a hitter he really is. I know that sounds illogical - and maybe it is - but Choo...

Appreciating third place

Perpetually five games back, perpetually very good.

Heisey + Frazier + Ludwick = Zero sum ball game?

Ryan Ludwick gets his rehab assignment underway this Wednesday in Dayton, which should be good news for a Reds team that's seen a few too many games on the order of Sunday's teeth-pulling against J...

Embracing novelty

While the NL has been enjoying its 3 game-win streak, the Reds' All Stars have been trying to stay out of the way. The hometown delegation is currently zero for its last 10, dating back to 2010....

When barely losing isn't enough

It's not what I was taught growing up playing Coddle Your Child League underhand coaches pitch softball, but losing sucks.

Time to make a move

The Reds are limping into All Star Break. And the plan seems to be to keep limping. Facing two hobbled catchers, Dusty Baker threw up his hands: "There's not a whole lot available," he said....

Game 87: Reds vs. Mariners (4:10 PM EDT)

It's a 4:10 Saturday start, but I'm happy to report that his game is not a Fox Blackout Night in America special. Despite winning 3 of their last four, the Reds are somehow a half game further...

A little help?... Hitters edition

Step one: admitting you need help.

About the Reds (not) beating good teams

Is this a real problem?

A little help?... Reliever edition

The Reds still have a really good record, even though they lost just last night. But this is increasingly cold comfort as the Pirates and Cardinals continue to cakewalk toward July. Maybe the help...

Saturday Evening (re)Post(er)

In this weekend edition, we discuss a draft signing, a marginalization and some underwhelming relief options.

How good is the Reds' offense, really?

Pretty good? Or really only kind of good?

Finding an edge. With a microscope.

it's the Mid Coast's best potential rivalry.

Reds sign Zack Duke, then try to fix bullpen

The Reds just signed Zach Duke - a lefty and former starter who turned reliever sometime in 2011 - to a minor league contract. Duke pitched 20 terrible innings for the Nationals this season, being...

Will Hanigan be the man again? (at the plate)

Ryan Hanigan's prowess behind the plate is pretty well-proven. He seems to coax better performances out of the Reds' staff, frames pitches effectively and generally makes crouching look easy. Not...

Depth perception: Do the Reds have enough back-up?

They should consider putting it in "the cloud."

Game 52: Reds vs. Indians (7:10 EDT).

Next Game Cleveland Indians @ Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT Great American Ball Park Zach McAllister vs Mat Latos Partly cloudy. Winds blowing...

Reds' recent revisionist trade history

Rating transactions the wrong way. Or: how the Baltimore Orioles won the Chase Weems trade.

Good relievers gone bad

We were treated to one of the best bullpens in franchise history last season. Possibly even the best. When Walt kept the band together, it was easy to assume we were in for another season of...

Game 30: Reds @ Cubs

Given the forecast, this may be a stop-n-start affair. BP is apparently taking a scheduled off-day. Instead of making any sort of tweak to the flailing offense - or rest for those who actually...

Looking for answers/excuses

It's May 2 and the team has a winning record.

What does Tony have left to prove?

Tony Cingrani has only been in professional baseball for a little over two years. And when you consider that he spent 2011 with the short-season Billings Mustangs, he's really only been around the...

A Friday List. Get to work.

Reds DL Cueto, call up Justin Freeman

What's looked more and more likely since Johnny Cueto started wincing after throwing a pitch Saturday night is now confirmed. The Reds will put Cueto on the DL. Per John Fay, they're calling it a s...
