    UPDATE:  Peace has apparently been achieved. 6:35 AM: From the Twitter feed of Brandon Phillips after last night’s marathon game against the Pirates: #RealTalk… Not really surprised by what I heard come outta another player’s mouth tonite but DAMN… Still PISSED bout that $h¡+!! #Racism — Brandon Phillips (@DatDudeBP) September 11, 2012 No names attached,…

  2. Catch the Reds-Cardinals series tonight on “Caught Looking” at 9PM on the NBC Sports Network

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    NBC Sports Network

    Tonight’s Caught Looking, airing at 9 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network, goes behind the scenes at last weekend’s Red-Cardinals series. Spoiler alert! The Cards took two of three. But that’s OK, because that’s not the point of the show.  Here’s a preview. Note: Brandon Phillips should probably be miked up in every game, always.

  3. Player Poll: A-Rod is the phoniest player in the game

    Aug 22, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Sports Illustrated continues to trickle out the results of player polling they did. We’ve had the most overrated, the most underrated, the meanest, the most eccentric and the most popular. Now, the phoniest: like you needed to tell me it was gonna be A-Rod? Rodriguez finished first with 26% of the vote, followed by Nick Swisher…

  4. Matt Harvey is dominant. Frank Francisco is drunk?

    Aug 16, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    The Mets are playing out the string at this point, but at least they’re keeping things interesting. Matt Harvey limited the Reds to one run in 7 2/3 innings and struck out eight in the Mets’ 8-4 win on Thursday. He also had a two-run double off Homer Bailey in the contest. Frank Francisco put…

  5. Alfonso Soriano says Starlin Castro needs to “concentrate more on the game”

    Starlin Castro AP

    Starlin Castro wasn’t the only member of the Cubs who made mistakes in yesterday’s loss to the Reds at Wrigley Field. In fact, the Cubs committed five errors for the first time since 2006. But the 22-year-old was the focus after the game. Castro, who has a history of mental lapses, committed a fielding error…

  6. Cubs hit new low, commit five errors in loss to Reds

    Aug 10, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Ryan Ludwick

    The Cubs snapped their eight-game losing streak by beating the Reds on Thursday, but they returned to typical form Friday, committing five errors in a 10-8 loss to Cincinnati. Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro, Josh Vitters, Brett Jackson and Welington Castillo all had miscues on a very windy day at Wrigley Field. The Cubs had five…

  7. Brandon Phillips still out of Reds’ lineup Sunday

    Aug 5, 2012, 1:10 PM EDT

    brandon phillips ap

    From Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette comes word that Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is out of the starting lineup again for Sunday’s series-finale against the Pirates. Wilson Valdez will get the nod in his place, batting seventh against Bucs right-hander A.J. Burnett. Phillips hasn’t started a game this month due to a left…

  8. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aug 5, 2012, 8:33 AM EDT

    reds win getty

    There’s apparently no stoppin’ the mighty Redlegs. Backed by Todd Frazier‘s timely hitting and another outstanding performance by the National League’s top bullpen, Cincinnati rolled to its fifth consecutive victory Saturday night at Great American Ball Park. Joey Votto has been sidelined since July 15 due to knee surgery and Brandon Phillips hasn’t started a…

  9. Brandon Phillips could return to action over the weekend

    Aug 1, 2012, 7:34 PM EDT

    brandon phillips getty

    Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips was removed from Tuesday’s game against the Padres because of a left calf strain and later told reporters that he was going to be out of commission “a while.” But there is suddenly reason for optimism. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday night that…

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

  11. Brandon Phillips could land on DL with calf strain

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:44 AM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    Brandon Phillips came back and played Monday after leaving Sunday’s game with a cramp in his left calf, but it appears he made the injury a whole lot worse tonight. MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon has the quotes from the Reds second baseman: The calf is no bueno right now. I tried to play [Monday] because the…

    Chicago White Sox v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 3, White Sox 1: All Cody Ross does is hit three-run homers. The walkoff one here was his third in two days. Mets 9, Nationals 5: David Wright his a two-run and a three-run homer. He’s like a poor-man’s Cody Ross! R.A. Dickey is the first player in the NL to notch 13…

  13. All-Star starter Dan Uggla now hitting seventh for Braves

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Dan Uggla

    There’s been a lot of hostility directed Tony La Russa’s way for all of the NL All-Star snubs this week. Really, though, it’s the fans as a whole that made things more difficult than they needed to be by voting Dan Uggla, Rafael Furcal and Pablo Sandoval into the starting lineup. The Braves tonight dropped…

  14. Reds feel they were intentionally snubbed by National League All-Star manager Tony La Russa

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    baker cueto getty

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…

  15. Brandon Phillips gets hit in head, leaves game

    Jun 27, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    Three innings after getting hit in the head during Aramis Ramirez‘s attempted steal of second base, Brandon Phillips left Thursday’s game against the Brewers. It was termed a precautionary move, suggesting that Phillips is expected to be fine. Miguel Cairo took over at second base for the Reds. Phillips had an RBI single the half-inning…

  16. The final NL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the NL All-Star team would look like so. Changes to possible starters: Ryan Braun pulled ahead of Melky Cabrera for the third outfield slot, reversing last week’s reversal. Otherwise, the same old same old, with the changes only affecting downballot stuff: CATCHER Buster Posey, Giants:…

  17. NL All-Star balloting update: Melky in, Braun out

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bochy's Angels?

    Just like in Monday’s AL balloting update, one spot in the National League projected All-Star lineup changed hands this week. Melky Cabrera moved ahead of Ryan Braun into third place in the outfield. Cabrera is deserving based on his performance this season, but one can’t help but notice that Giants fans have been awfully generous…

  18. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Dusty Baker, Brandon Phillips

    Reds 12, Indians 5: One in a bunch of lopsided Thursday games. Brandon Phillips simply abuses Indians pitching as a rule and he did so again yesterday, driving in four. And he likes it too. He said after the game: “Deep down, it feels good to beat up on the Tribe.” Michael Brantley extended his hitting…

  19. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 14, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Matt Cain, Buster Posey

    Giants 10, Astros 0: A simply unbelievable night for Matt Cain.  As we noted last night, this was among the best games ever pitched in the history of baseball. Perfection is one thing. Doing it while striking out 14 is dominant perfection.  And don’t try to diminish it by saying “hey, it was the Astros.”…

    Biggest move: at catcher, where Buster Posey has passed Yadier Molina.  The results: Catcher Buster Posey: 1,713,839 Yadier Molina: 1,576,199 First Base Joey Votto: 2,108,725 Lance Berkman:851,373 Second Base Dan Uggla: 1,341,088 Brandon Phillips:885,250 Third Base David Wright: 1,358,992 Pablo Sandoval:1,103,650 Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki:1,200,256 Rafael Furcal: 1,183,096 Outfield Matt Kemp: 2,589,464 Carlos Beltran: 1,782,831 Ryan…

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  22. Aroldis Chapman is gonna be a setup man forever, I guess

    May 17, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman Getty

    Danny Knobler has a column up today asking a question a lot of Reds fans have probably been asking themselves for some time: why in the heck is Aroldis Chapman still the Reds’ setup guy? He hasn’t allowed a run all year. He has retired 22 of his last 24 hitters. He has a K/BB ratio…

  23. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 15, 2012, 5:54 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper, Nick Hundley, Larry Vanover

    Nationals 8, Padres 5: Bryce Harper golfed one more than 400 feet to straightaway center for his first ever major league homer. He also struck out on four pitches to Joe Thatcher and launched a really loud f-bomb. I love him for both reasons, frankly. And I love how the back end of the Nats…

  24. Zack Greinke knocks the Reds down, but John Axford lets ‘em back up

    May 9, 2012, 5:50 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Milwaukee Brewers

    Zack Greinke pitched eight shutout innings against the Reds this afternoon. He allowed only two hits. He struck out 11.  That’ll get you a win most days.  But not today. That’s because Johnny Cueto pitched seven shutout innings himself and had better help from his bullpen and the Fates. The Reds beat the Brewers 2-1.…

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the New York Yankees in Arlington, Texas

    Rangers 2, Yankees 0: Yu Darvish finally arrives. Eight and a third innings, ten strikeouts and a big goose egg in the runs column against the best offense in baseball. Rays 5, Angels 0: David Price: five-hit shutout. Albert Pujols: 0 for 4. He has the lowest slugging percentage of anyone in last night’s Angels…
