Cincinnati Reds

  1. Reds make it three out of four, defeat Cardinals 6-2

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:30 PM EST

    Todd Frazier

    If they hadn’t gotten so bunt happy on Wednesday, the Reds might have made it a clean sweep. As is, they should be pretty pleased to have taken three out of four from the visiting Cardinals with their 6-2 win on Thursday. Todd Frazier hit two of the Reds’ four homers in support of Tony…

  2. The Reds got bunt-happy last night and it cost them dearly

    Sep 5, 2013, 9:45 AM EST

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    If the Reds fall a game short of the Cardinals and/or Pirates — or, heaven forbid, the Diamondbacks or Nationals — they might want to look at last night’s game against the Cardinals as the reason why. It was a night the Red squandered multiple opportunities thanks to ill-advised bunts. The first weird attempt did…

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

    Sep 4, 2013, 7:13 AM EST

    Jon Lester

    It’s cool and crisp here in America’s Heartland and there were some games last night that felt like the playoffs. Can we please just skip September and move straight on into October? Would anyone object to this? Red Sox 2, Tigers 1: An ALCS preview? Jon Lester outduels Max Scherzer in a tight game with…

  4. Johnny Cueto throws 35-pitch bullpen session

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:39 PM EST

    From C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto threw 35 pitches off a mound Tuesday at Great American Ball Park and looked “impressive.” Cueto has been on the shelf since departing his June 28 start against the Rangers with a severely-strained right lat muscle. He is aiming to…

  5. Video: Billy Hamilton picks up first career stolen base

    Sep 3, 2013, 9:48 PM EST

    billy hamilton getty

    Reds speedster Billy Hamilton made his major league debut as a pinch-runner on Tuesday night after a Ryan Ludwick single to center field and stole second base off Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina. Molina probably would have had him if the throw was on line, but knowledge of Hamilton’s base-stealing prowess likely caused the five-time Gold…

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

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:25 AM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Houston Astros

    Twins 10, Astros 6: Rookie and independent league veteran Chris Colabello homered twice including a grand slam to break a 6-6 tie in the ninth. Entering Sunday he was on an 0 for 23 skid and now here he is having the best day of his life. Probably the best day he’ll ever have at a ballpark.…

  7. The Cardinals had a nightmare Labor Day

    Sep 2, 2013, 4:12 PM EST

    Screen Shot 2013-09-02 at 4.12.45 PM

    I bet St. Louis fans are glad that’s over. In addition to losing Yadier Molina mid-game due to a sore left wrist, the Cardinals were walloped by the Reds today, 7-2. Ace Adam Wainwright was shelled for six earned runs in six innings. That’s the second straight awful start for Wainwright since he tossed 128 pitches…

  8. Todd Helton doubles in the seventh for 2,500th career hit

    Sep 1, 2013, 7:05 PM EST

    Todd Helton

    Long time Rockies first baseman Todd Helton sliced a double down the left field line against Reds reliever Curtis Partch in the bottom of the seventh for his 2,500th career hit. Helton narrowly beat left fielder Chris Heisey‘s throw to second base for the double. There was a brief pause in the game as Helton…

  9. Joey Votto wants to lead the league in OPS and WAR

    Aug 30, 2013, 7:45 PM EST

    Joey Votto Getty

    At FanGraphs, David Laurila polled a handful (12, to be specific) of Major Leaguers about with which offensive statistic they would like to lead the league. It’s quite fascinating, particularly that the most popular answer was not batting average, runs, or RBI, but OPS. Had you randomly polled 12 players five years ago, I would…

  10. The Reds will call up Billy Hamilton on Monday

    Aug 30, 2013, 7:05 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds Photo Day

    John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that the Reds will be promoting outfield prospect Billy Hamilton from Triple-A Louisville on Monday after rosters have expanded. Hamilton was rated the #20 overall prospect by Baseball America going into the season. In 356 trips to the plate, he has hit just .256 with a .308…

  11. Quote of the Day: Ron Darling on Brandon Phillips

    Aug 29, 2013, 2:14 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds Photo Day

    Brandon Phillips lashing out at a reporter yesterday has led to a lot of interesting discussions about the player/reporter relationship. My favorite is by Will Leitch of Sports On Earth, who wrote an interesting article about the power struggle that players always dominate. While announcing this afternoon’s Mets game Ron Darling also had a good…

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

    Aug 29, 2013, 7:05 AM EST

    Brandon Moss

    Athletics 14, Tigers 4: We had this game on for a bit, got bored and decided to watch some random stuff we had recorded. When the show ended we went back to the game to see the A’s up 14-1. Allison let’s out a big “oh for f***’s sake!” and quickly turns on the “Awesom-O”…

  13. Brandon Phillips goes off on Cincinnati Enquirer baseball writer C. Trent Rosecrans

    Aug 28, 2013, 8:31 PM EST

    brandon phillips

    Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips apparently took issue with something written recently by the stat-minded C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer and went off on Rosecrans in the visitor manager’s office Wednesday evening at Busch Stadium with manager Dusty Baker looking on. ESPN 101, a St. Louis-based radio station, just posted audio of the…

  14. The Long Sad History of Injured Pitchers

    Aug 28, 2013, 12:48 PM EST

    Matt Harvey

    There seems to be an impression out there that pitchers get hurt today more than they ever did before. It seems that every time a high profile pitcher gets hurt — the latest of these being Mets phenom Matt Harvey — that we get a rash of stories like this one from my friend Terry…

  15. Shin-Soo Choo joins the 100-100 club

    Aug 28, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    Miami Marlins v Cincinnati Reds

    It’s not a crazy-special club — we’re not talking Barry Bonds territory here — but round number-lovers among you will enjoy noting that last night Shin-Soo Choo joined the 100-100 club, hitting his 100th homer. He topped the century mark in stolen bases on Sunday when he snagged two, giving him 101 for his career.…

  16. Zack Greinke is hitting .340 (oh, and he also took a shutout into the ninth inning)

    Aug 27, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    Chicago Cubs v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Not only did Zack Greinke take a shutout into the ninth inning against the Cubs last night to improve to 13-3 with a 2.86 ERA, he also went 1-for-2 with an RBI single and a walk at the plate to continue a remarkable season offensively. Greinke is hitting .340 with a .426 on-base percentage in…

  17. Reds place Tony Cingrani on the disabled list

    Aug 25, 2013, 2:10 PM EST

    tony cingrani getty

    Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani made an early exit from his start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks with a lower back strain and hadn’t made enough progress by his next turn in the starting rotation so he has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. The disabling is retroactive to August 21, meaning Cingrani will be eligible…

  18. Ryan Ludwick hit his first home run of the year on Saturday night and “felt like Superman”

    Aug 25, 2013, 11:05 AM EST

    ludwick getty

    Reds left fielder Ryan Ludwick tore the labrum in his right shoulder on Opening Day and sat out the next four months, so you can understand why he was thrilled to contribute in a meaningful way in Saturday night’s 6-3 victory over the visiting Brewers. Playing in just his ninth game of the 2013 regular…

  19. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aug 25, 2013, 8:54 AM EST

    shelby miller getty

    It only seems right to use this space to update the situation in the National League Central — baseball’s tightest divisional race by far here in late 2013. Shelby Miller allowed just three hits and one earned run over seven innings and Carlos Beltran slugged his 23rd home run of the season Saturday as the…

  20. Jonathan Broxton out six months after elbow surgery

    Aug 23, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Three

    Yesterday when the Reds announced that Jonathan Broxton needed elbow surgery manager Dusty Baker said that an official return timetable wouldn’t be known until doctors “get in there and see what’s wrong.” Well, the doctors got in there today to repair a torn flexor mass and now the Reds say Broxton will be out for…

  21. Meanwhile, in Brandon Phillips vs. Joey Votto land …

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:34 PM EST

    joey votto getty

    From today’s Reds-Dbacks game, a sequence that will never get recounted by the folks like Paul Daugherty who like to say Joey Votto is a bum and Brandon Phillips is the team MVP. Third inning: Shin-Soo Choo leads off with a single. The second batter — today Todd Frazier — strikes out looking.  Choo reaches…

  22. Jonathan Broxton needs elbow surgery, out for the season

    Aug 22, 2013, 1:48 PM EST

    Jonathan Broxton

    Cincinnati signing Jonathan Broxton to a three-year, $21 million contract was criticized heavily this offseason and now it looks considerably worse, as the right-hander will miss the remainder of the season following elbow surgery. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com described the current details surrounding Broxton’s recovery timetable as “vague” and manager Dusty Baker indicated that doctors…

  23. Tony Cingrani exits start with lower back strain

    Aug 20, 2013, 8:41 PM EST

    cingrani getty

    Reds starter Tony Cingrani left Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks in the top of the fourth inning with what is being called a lower back strain. The 24-year-old left-hander allowed one run on two hits and a walk before being lifted with two outs in the fourth. Alfredo Simon entered in relief. A lower back…

  24. Joey Votto actually has to defend himself? This is where we are?

    Aug 20, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    joey votto ap

    Every time I think that the bulk of baseball fans and commentators has moved on from the dark ages of batting average and RBI meaning everything and into at least the Renaissance period that was the early-“Moneyball Days,” something odd happens to make me realize that, nope, not as many people have moved on as…

  25. Braun not likely to answer media questions in his “coming clean” session. It hardly matters.

    Aug 20, 2013, 8:51 AM EST

    ryan braun getty

    There was a report over the weekend that Ryan Bruan would soon be “coming clean” about his PED use, lies and all the rest. Tom Haudricourt reports, however, that he may not be answering any questions: Word has circulated that Braun was preparing to make a public apology and admission of guilt in using PEDs…
