    When the Reds acquired Shin-Soo Choo from the Indians this offseason they knew it might only be a one-year pickup with free agency right around the corner, but general manager Walt Jocketty told C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer that they’ll “do everything we can” to re-sign him. Choo has been fantastic this season,…

  2. Francisco Liriano lined up to start Wild Card playoff game for Pirates

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:30 AM EST

    Pittsburgh Pirates v New York Mets

    Here’s a sentence that would have sounded pretty crazy back in spring training: Francisco Liriano is lined up to start the Wild Card play-in game for the Pirates. Even crazier is that the Pirates may not need him to do that if they win the NL Central, but if Pittsburgh plays in the Wild Card…

    Sep 19, 2013, 8:21 AM EST

    Cincinnati Reds v Houston Astros

    So far Reds’ speedster Billy Hamilton has been deployed as a pinch runner/secret weapon. Last night he got a start, however, and boy what a start it was. Hamilton went 3 for 4 — his first three major league hits — with two walks and four stolen bases against the Astros. He is the first…

    Reds prospect Billy Hamilton–also known as the fastest man in baseball–is making his first career start tonight after spending the past two weeks coming off the bench.

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

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EST

    Texas Rangers v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 6, Rangers 2: A homer and three RBI for Wil Myers as the Rays send the Rangers spiraling ever further into despair. Because the Indians lost too the Rangers didn’t fall out of the wild card slot, but they did fall out of the top spot, meaning that they’re now closer to falling out…

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

    Sep 16, 2013, 5:00 AM EST

    Zero Effect

    Mets 1, Marlins 0: There were 12 pitchers in this game. Eleven of them didn’t allow any runs, including both starters, Dillon Gee and Tom Koehler. Travis d’Arnaud singled off Zach Phillips in the 12th for the game’s only run. All of those zeroes made me think of one of my favorite movies of all time. Quite…

    Sep 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EST

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez already has one of the three NL Gold Gloves for outfielders locked up, but he decided to pad his resume in case anyone was still on the fence about his defensive prowess. With two runners on base with two outs and the game tied 5-5 in the ninth inning, Jay…

  16. Teddy the Reds batboy has hit the big time

    Sep 13, 2013, 2:39 PM EST

    reds logo

    You may remember Teddy Kremer, the Reds bat boy who, back in April, told Todd Frazier to hit a home run. After which Todd Frazier hit a home run. After that Teddy got a lot of media exposure. Maybe because he’s better than Dusty Baker is at getting Todd Frazier to do things. I don’t…

    Sep 12, 2013, 7:12 AM EST

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  21. A lefty hit two homers off Clayton Kershaw

    Sep 9, 2013, 8:53 AM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Cincinnati Reds

    A lot of guys hit two homers in a game. Happens a couple of times a week, more or less. But Jay Bruce doing it last night was a bit more notable: his bombs were the first and second homers hit by a left-hander off Clayton Kershaw all season long. Kershaw may normally be murder…

    Sep 6, 2013, 2:49 PM EST

    Mark Trumbo

    Tweet about Brandon Phillips‘ low on-base percentage and he flips out and calls you names.  Talk to Mark Trumbo for a little while and he brings up his low OBP and says that it’s a weakness in his game he’s working to improve: “I understand it,” Trumbo said of getting a bad rap for his…
