  1. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

  3. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: NL MVP

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Now it’s time for the NL midseason MVP, and this year’s picture to date is just as confusing as last year’s was, in my opinion. Of course, the BBWAA decided on Buster Posey pretty handily last year(27 of 32 first-place votes), but I ultimately picked Yadier Molina from a close group of five players. Here…

  4. Hating on Homer: the Cincinnati media is less-than-impressed

    Jul 3, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    homer bailey no-no getty

    Not all the Cincinnati media. My primary follows for Reds news are John Fay, Mark Sheldon and C. Trent Rosecrans and those guys are more or less straight shooters. Some others, however, not so much. To wit: Paul Daugherty of the Cincy Enquirer and the crowd at WLW, where Marty Brennaman calls home. Their underwhelemed…

  5. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 3, 2013, 7:16 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds

    Reds 3, Giants 0: Homer Bailey does it again. You can read about all of the important details of his no-hitter here and here. Less mentioned in the aftermath? (a) Homer dropped an F-bomb in a postgame interview when talking about the walk he gave up to blow the perfect game; and (b) the Giants loss…

  6. Homer Bailey becomes the 28th pitcher in major league history to throw multiple no-hitters

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    homer bailey no-no getty

    The two most recent no-hit performances in Major League Baseball belong to Cincy’s Homer Bailey. Bailey’s first, last September 28 at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park, required 115 pitches and played out in front of a small opposing crowd of yellow and black. The scene on Tuesday night was a little more special. Bailey needed only 109…

  7. Homer Bailey throws a no-hitter against the Giants

    Jul 2, 2013, 9:57 PM EDT

    homer bailey getty

    TOP OF THE NINTH: Bailey made a nice play on a high-bouncing comebacker from the Giants’ No. 8 hitter, Brandon Crawford, to get the first out in the ninth and struck out pinch-hitter Tony Abreu with a 97 mph fastball for the second out. Gregor Blanco, who drew the walk in the seventh inning to break…

  8. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: AL & NL Cy Young

    Matt Harvey

    Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

  10. Johnny Cueto returns to disabled list after aggravating lat injury

    Jun 29, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Johnny Cueto, Dusty Baker, Devin Mesoraco, Scott Barry

    UPDATE: Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that Cueto has been placed on the disabled list. He was set to be examined today, but there’s no word yet on the results. The Reds have recalled Logan Ondrusek from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding roster move while Cingrani will replace Cueto in the starting rotation. 11:20 AM:…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 24, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

  13. Heath Bell allows homer in fifth consecutive appearance

    Jun 22, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    Heath Bell

    Diamondbacks closer Heath Bell surrendered a two-run home run to Jay Bruce in the top of the ninth inning that turned a 2-1 lead into a 3-2 deficit. It marked the fifth consecutive game in which Bell has allowed a homerun: June 10 @ Dodgers: Juan Uribe walk-off solo home run June 12 @ Dodgers:…

  14. Marty Brennaman slags Saberists, Joey Votto’s lack of RBI

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    “Saber people get all worked up over BB’s, Joey Votto is paid to drive in runs, and he’s on pace for 80 RBI.”-Marty B, 700 WLW #Reds — Lance McAlister (@LanceMcAlister) June 22, 2013 It’s not just the walks that make Saberists praise Joey Votto, though. Entering tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks, Votto was hitting…

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

    Jun 21, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

  16. Jason Grilli blows his first save of the year

    Jun 20, 2013, 8:50 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Cincinnati Reds

    All good things must come to an end. Jason Grilli has been a good thing for the Pirates so far this year, but he was pretty unlikely to be perfect in save situations all year. And last night he blew his first save of the year. Granted, it wasn’t an easy save. The Pirates led…

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

    Jun 18, 2013, 6:59 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 2, Mets 1: A three-hour and fifty-two minute rain delay? Really? Despite that, Dillon Gee shut the Braves out through eight and a third and drove in the Mets’ only run. And despite that he gave up a walkoff two-run homer to Freddie Freeman just before 1:30 AM. Now they play a day-night doubleheader. Expect many…

  18. Video: Starling Marte robs Brandon Phillips with diving catch

    Jun 17, 2013, 8:48 PM EDT

    Starling Marte

    Starling Marte has been a major part of the Pirates’ impressive first half, batting .287/.355/.422 with 19 extra-base hits (six home runs), 19 RBI, and 20 stolen bases in 64 games coming into play tonight. But as this nifty diving catch in the third inning of tonight’s Pirates-Reds game demonstrates, he’s not too bad with…

  19. Two words for you: mini bar

    Mini Bar

    USA Today talked with Bronson Arroyo, David Freese, C.J. Wilson and David Wright about their travel preferences. Here’s the short version: The longer version: food is important. First thing they check when they check in to a hotel? Room service hours and if breakfast is still being served. And they all like that minibar: Arroyo, Freese and Wright unite over…

  20. Tony Cingrani stays with Reds, shifts to bullpen

    Jun 17, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Tony Cingrani Getty

    Last time Johnny Cueto returned from the disabled list the Reds sent his rotation fill-in, Tony Cingrani, back to Triple-A, but this time around they’ve decided to keep the rookie left-hander around as a reliever. “He fills what we need,” manager Dusty Baker told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. “We need a power arm in the…

    Yadier Molina and Buster Posey are neck-and-neck tatto. David Wright is getting help from the cougars! Did Domonoic Brown do something awful to the pets of every All-Star voter? Confused? You won’t be, after this week’s episode of … “SOAP!” Er, sorry. After this week’s NL All-Star voting update: FIRST BASE Joey Votto, Reds 2,047,945…

    Anna Scorecard

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…

  23. Johnny Cueto activated from disabled list for Sunday start

    Jun 16, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    johnny cueto getty

    As first reported by beat writer John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds have activated right-hander Johnny Cueto from the 15-day disabled list. Pedro Villarreal was sent to Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move to clear a 25-man roster spot. Cueto will return to the Cincy starting rotation on Sunday afternoon for the Reds’…

  24. Johnny Cueto to return from disabled list Sunday, Tony Cingrani could stay in bullpen

    Johnny Cueto Getty

    The Reds will activate right-hander Johnny Cueto from the disabled list to start tomorrow against the Brewers, reports Trent C. Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Cueto was placed on the disabled list on June 1 with a lat strain, so he’ll only miss the minimum 15 days. While he didn’t make a minor league rehab…

  25. Jonathan Broxton placed on disabled list with right elbow strain

    Jun 15, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Jonathan Broxton Getty

    The Reds are already without left-hander Sean Marshall due to a shoulder sprain, but their bullpen was handed another blow today, as Jonathan Broxton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. Broxton allowed the winning run in Thursday’s 14-inning loss to the Cubs, after which he…
