I might have missed this in the last Reporter, but worth a read. Basically a smarter version of "extend the Votto/Bruce/Phillips window!"

Madson: Honorable Mention, Best Changeup 2011

+

Over at Fangraphs, they're doing a neat recap of the best pitches of 2011. Madson makes the honorable mention cut for his changeup. Ryan Madson: I didn’t include a reliever on this list until now, but RHP Ryan Madson got some serious results with his changeup with a 55.8% whiff rate and 14.9 wCH, both leading all relief pitchers. It’s a changeup that dives down and runs at about 84 mph. As a mostly fastball/changeup combo reliever, he used his changeup as much as anybody in baseball (34.4%).

SIS: The 29 Trades of Joey Votto

So with all the early Votto trade talk focused on teams that actually match up well with the Reds for a trade, I got to thinking about how trades with the other teams might look. So here's your...

2011 Reds Quiz #3 -- Scrambled Edition

It's been awhile, so here's another quiz.  I don't know if this is hard or easy, to be honest, as I am terrible at word scrambles generally.  So here's 4 minutes to figure out ten scrambles, which...

2011 Reds Quiz #2 -- Slightly Harder Edition

EE Makes a "Top 5" list...of sorts

Fangraphs broke down the "errors" portion of UZR, listing some of the players who have cost their teams wins through errors. Our beloved EE makes the list.

Reds to sign Jeremy Hermida

37

From MLBTR: The Reds agreed to sign Jeremy Hermida to a minor league deal, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Hermida bats from the left side and has a career .267/.342/.432 line against righties.

Don't let it be said that Walt hasn't picked up a LF this off-season...

I saw this last night, and figured someone would post it, but it hasn't been added yet. The Reds signed Brian Barton, who mashed in the Atlantic League this year.

Lee might not have come to the NL Central, but another ace just (Greinke) did.

3

Realistically speaking, though, how many times can we expect to face him over the season? Obviously, more times that if he had stayed in the AL, but over the course of a 162-game season, how much does this change our record?

Harang Signs on with Padres

Our boy Aaron has landed with his hometown team. I say good for him. I can't help but cheer for someone who always seemed like a great guy and was there through the tough times.

I can appreciate their pain in Seattle.

Seattle's always been my favorite AL team, I guess, because of the Kid's time there. Here's hoping for a better 2011.

Harang Not a Fit for Rox's Playoff Push

MLBTraderumors mentions the Rockies's willingness to pick up starting pitching to make the final push to the playoffs. They don't think Harang fits--but just imagine if it happened.
