  1. Brandon Phillips is probably on the way out of Cincinnati

    The Cincinnati Enquirer‘s John Fay — a very professional beat reporter who doesn’t dabble in nonsense — reported last week that the Reds will likely shop second baseman Brandon Phillips this winter. Which makes sense in a lot of ways. Phillips is owed $50 million over the next four seasons and posted a weak .706…

  2. Koji Uehara is your ALCS MVP

    Oct 20, 2013, 12:28 AM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    Closer Koji Uehara has been Mr. Dependable for the Red Sox all year long and he’s finally been rewarded for it. Not only does he get to pitch in the World Series, he will go home tonight with some hardware, earning MVP of the ALCS for a sterling effort, notching three saves in as many…

  3. Heyman: The Astros could make a play for Shin-Soo Choo

    We’re not ready to fire up the hot stove quite yet, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman passes along this interesting nugget on a potential surprise suitor for impending free agent Shin-Soo Choo: The Houston Astros, whose lowest-in-baseball payroll of $25 million or thereabouts was a mere fraction of most teams, may consider making a run…

  4. The Braves would have interest in Brandon Phillips if the Reds take Dan Uggla back

    Oct 19, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Wild Card Game - Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    We heard yesterday that the Reds could look to trade second baseman Brandon Phillips this offseason. And it sounds like we can count the Braves among the teams who could be in the mix to acquire him, though there is a catch involved. Hearing #Braves would have interest in #Reds 2B Phillips if Cincy takes…

  5. Cardinals await conclusion of ALCS as World Series will be a rematch of 2004 or 2006

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    With a thorough 9-0 drubbing of the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS, the Cardinals clinched a World Series appearance for the first time since, uh, last week. At least it feels that way, anyway. They won the World Series in 2011 against the Texas Rangers in seven games. The Cardinals are anxiously waiting…

  6. The Uehara Phenomenon

    Oct 18, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    So, you probably know that this year Boston’s Koji Uehara proved to be harder to reach base against than any pitcher in the history of baseball. That’s a pretty good thing. Here’s the list of the Top 10 WHIPs in baseball history, pitching at least 50 innings: 1. Koji Uehara, 2013, 0.565 2. Dennis Eckersley,…

  7. The Reds could trade Brandon Phillips this winter

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    John Fay — who doesn’t engage in wild speculation — reports that the Reds could shop second baseman Brandon Phillips this winter. He cites the Reds’ interest in Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero as one suggestion that they’re willing to move past Phillips. The second reason is more personal: Phillips ticked off a lot of people in…

  8. Mat Latos had surgery to remove bone chips from elbow

    Oct 16, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Reds right-hander Mat Latos, who was passed over for the Wild Card game start in part because he was dealing with bone chips in his elbow, had surgery last week to remove them. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that he’s expected to be fully recovered before spring training and generally speaking removing bone chips (and/or…

  9. Four years later, 2009 free-agent pair comes up big in LCSs

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:58 AM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Three

    Headlined by three players, the post-2009 season MLB free agent class was undoubtedly the weakest seen in at least a decade. The prizes: Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday (acquired from the A’s earlier that summer), Red Sox outfielder Jason Bay and Angels right-hander John Lackey. The field was so bad that the fourth biggest contract went…

  10. Steve Bartman achieved infamy ten years ago today

    Bartman.standard[1]

    I didn’t know the date off the top of my head, but I bet a bunch of Cubs fans did. October 14, 2003 — ten years ago today — was Steve Bartman day. In case you’re six years-old or generally oblivious, the Bartman game became known as such when Mr. Bartman reached for a foul ball…

  11. Shane Victorino ties post-season record with ninth HBP

    Oct 13, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino moved into a tie with Alex Rodriguez for the most post-season HBP’s in the bottom of the first inning of NLCS Game 2. Tigers starter Max Scherzer drilled Victorino in the left shoulder with a 91 MPH fastball, his ninth career in the post-season. The errant pitch put a runner…

  12. Bronson Arroyo hasn’t heard from Reds, doesn’t expect qualifying offer

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    Bronson Arroyo

    Bronson Arroyo will be a free agent after spending the past eight seasons in Cincinnati and the 36-year-old right-hander told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that he hasn’t had any extension talks with the Reds: I’ve heard not a word. The sense I have, I don’t think they’ll make me a [qualifying] offer. They would have…

  13. La Russa is not a Reds managerial candidate. Jim Riggleman is for some reason.

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    As soon as the news hit that Dusty Baker was out as Reds manager people started talking about Tony La Russa. In addition to being a surefire Hall of Fame manager, he is close with Reds GM Walt Jocketty and worked with him for years in St. Louis. Seems that’s just wishcasting: Tony LaRussa has…

  14. Four points of award voting

    Oct 2, 2013, 10:04 AM EDT

    When I was a kid, I loved the annual awards column that would run in the local newspaper. It does not really matter WHICH local paper I’m talking about now because some version of that column ran in every newspaper in the United States. The columns always picked the writers’ baseball award winners and, along…

  15. Brandon Phillips: “we choked”

    Oct 2, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Wild Card Game - Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The guy tells it like it is. Sometimes when he shouldn’t. But you can pretty much expect him to go beyond the cliches before most guys do, and he did so last night after the Reds’ loss to the Pirates: “We choked. I don’t care how my teammates feel about what I am saying now,…

    Dallas Latos — the wife of Reds pitcher Mat Latos — claims to have had an ugly incident during Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park, a 6-2 victory for host Pittsburgh. We’ll let her do the explaining: Got punched in the head at least 3 times by a pirates fan so this…

  17. Listless Reds have no answer for Francisco Liriano

    Oct 1, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    Swept by the Pirates over the weekend, the Reds went down without a fight. The hope that they could simply flip the switch — and maybe find their swag — Tuesday died a quick death in front of a raucous PNC Park crowd. The incredible thing is that the Reds had actually beaten Francisco Liriano…

  18. Pirates roll to 6-2 defeat of Reds in NL Wild Card Game

    The Pirates are heading to their first-ever NLDS. Francisco Liriano allowed just one run on four hits in seven innings and Russell Martin homered twice as the Bucs cruised to a 6-2 victory over the visiting Reds in the National League Wild Card Game on Tuesday night at a sold-out and rowdy PNC Park. Liriano…

    Everything continues to go right for the host Bucs.

    marlon byrd getty

    Pirates starter Francisco Liriano struck out Reds leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo on four pitches to open the game and then induced groundouts from Ryan Ludwick and Joey Votto for a quick, nine-pitch first inning. That set the early tone in this NL Wild Card Game at a fired-up and blacked-out PNC Park. Liriano was even…

    brandon phillips

    Brandon Phillips took a foul ball off his leg Saturday and then sat out Sunday’s game with what Mark Sheldon of MLB.com describes as “some nasty swelling above his left shin.” However, the Reds second baseman felt much better Monday and is expected to be in the lineup for tonight’s Wild Card playoff game against…
