An Odd Statistic Uniting the Reds & Giants; or, Who's Luck Will Run Out First?

There's a strange, made up statistic uniting our Cincinnati Reds and those San Francisco Giants. It's more than likely meaningless, but these are the playoffs, where everything is exponentially...

Seems low risk and, if he can turn the clock back five years, high reward.

Volquez to Start Game 1; Real Fans to Witness Bronson

3

Dusty pulled the trigger early in naming Volquez the opening day starter, calling Bronson his #2 and Cueto #3. To me, this simply makes sense. In the long run, it probably doesn't matter, but it's February and this is baseball "news."

Jayson Stark's NL Central Off Season Grades

8

ESPN's Jayson Stark gives off-season grades to the NL Central clubs. Reds get a C because they didn't do much (except set themselves up for long term solvency and competitiveness). Others get higher marks for gutting their farms to win in '11. What say you? Were the Reds average this winter?

Open Letter to the Red Reporter Death Match (fantasy baseball)

This is a letter of explanation to those involved in the Red Reporter Death Match as to why I've not been able to do anything for the last several weeks.  The gist: CBSSports.com sucks.  Full...

Wojy Compares Rose, McGwire, Sort Of

1

ESPN's Wojy kind of discusses MLB's embrace of McGwire while continuing to shun Rose. Nothing particularly new here. I think we'll continue to see a trend among sports writers pleading for Rose's reinstatement, especially those who were kids learning to love the game when Pete was in his prime.

Non-Stat Geek Fantasy Baseball

OK, so I did it.  I created a fantasy league at yahoo! along the same lines as last year's non-beer league/non-stat geek Red Reporter league.  It's pretty normal 5x5 roto, NL only.  The league is...

That's It! We're Done!

Evidently, we've maxed out our budget.  I just now saw it on MLBTR, who took it from CTrent.  According to the Fay, it's about the same last year's $74MM, maybe a touch higher.  So we can more or...

The Latest from the Fay

Fay posted a fairly quick report on Jocketty's action at the GM meetings.  There's a condensed (barely) version on MLBTR.  The good news is, Khalil Greene rumors are a lie.  It's nice to see...

Is any amount too much for Maddux?

Here's the report from the Padre's website for yesterday's game against the Angels: Greg Maddux certainly looked in midseason form Friday, as he needed just 24 pitches -- including 19 strikes...
