  1. Johnny Cueto may have pitched himself into Wild Card playoff game start

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    When Johnny Cueto was on the disabled list there was some talk of the Reds possibly bringing him back as a reliever, but he returned as a starter and now he might be end up being their No. 1 starter in the playoffs. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer asked manager Dusty Baker about that…

  2. Does pride keep sluggers from bunting against the shift?

    david ortiz bunt

    So, yeah, I don’t like the sacrifice bunt. I don’t like the way it’s scored. I don’t like the way managers use it. I don’t like percentages. I don’t like people’s hyper-eagerness to just give away an out, like it’s nothing, like it is actually worth just one base. I suspect I’ll be talking about…

  3. Mat Latos has been pitching hurt since June

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Reds right-hander Mat Latos revealed that he’s been pitching through an abdominal injury since late June, telling Shannon Russell of the Cincinnati Enquirer: No fan knows that I’ve been dealing with an injury since the Texas Rangers game [on June 30]. And I’ve been pitching with it. So I’ve been pitching the way I’ve been…

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

    Sep 24, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 2, Cubs 1: And with that the Pirates are going to the playoffs. It’s so strange, though, how even though it’s the franchise that has lost for the past 20 years — even though it’s just the laundry which has been shut out so long — that we sort of passively put all that…

  5. Billy Hamilton had the Mets totally psyched out

    Sep 23, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

    Billy Hamilton

    Reds manager Dusty Baker declined to start Billy Hamilton again Monday after his three-hit day Sunday, instead reserving him for pinch-running duties. When he did go to him in the eighth, it produced a memorable sequence. Hamilton pinch-ran for Ryan Hanigan with two outs and none on in a tie game in the bottom of…

  6. Quote of the Day: Brandon Phillips on Wild Card celebrations

    Sep 23, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    brandon phillips

    I totally agree with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips on this topic: Phillips on #Reds would celebrate clinching a wild card: Hell no! You celebrate clinching a one-game playoff and then lose, you look stupid. — John Fay (@johnfayman) September 23, 2013 Of course, we’ll see if the rest of the Reds feel the same…

  7. When it Raines, Part I

    Tim Raines

    A fantastic point here made by Tom Tango, and I have to admit that it has made me (for the nine millionth time) rethink the Baseball Hall of Fame. As you might have heard, Fangraphs asked a bunch of writers to name the three best eligible players not in the Hall of Fame. They asked the writers…

  8. Reds trounce Pirates to bring NL Wild Card back into a deadlock

    Sep 22, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Reds brought the lumber today against Pirates starter Jeff Locke. Locke, an All-Star, entered today’s start with a 5.43 ERA since the break. It didn’t improve. The Reds tagged Locke for five runs in the top of the first. After the Reds loaded the bases with one out, Jay Bruce laced a bases-clearing double…

  9. Stephen Strasburg is the third-fastest to reach 500 career strikeouts

    Sep 22, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    With a fifth-inning strikeout of Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich, Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg became the third-fastest — in terms of innings pitched — to reach 500 career strikeouts, tweets James Wagner of the Washington Post. The two to do it faster: former Cubs teammates Kerry Wood and Mark Prior. Strasburg entered tonight’s start with a…

  10. Shin-Soo Choo aiming to play Monday night

    Sep 22, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    shin-soo choo getty

    Shin-Soo Choo was held out of the Reds’ lineup on Saturday and is not playing Sunday due to a jammed left thumb that he suffered Friday night in Pittsburgh when he tried to beat out an infield single by diving into first base. But the situation is rapidly improving. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer…

  11. A.J. Burnett pitches Pirates past Reds to take lead in NL Wild Card

    Sep 21, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates starter A.J. Burnett, who earlier today told the media he is still considering retiring after the 2013 season, turned in a gem against the division and Wild Card rival Reds. The Reds went ahead early on a Ryan Ludwick RBI single in the first inning and a Zack Cozart solo home run in the…

  12. Tony Cingrani making slow progress from back spasms

    Sep 21, 2013, 10:39 AM EDT

    Tony Cingrani Getty

    Tony Cingrani hasn’t pitched since September 10 due to back spasms and it’s possible the Reds will have to get by without him for the rest of the regular season. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that progress for Cingrani has been slow and that attempts for him to throw have not gone well. The Reds…

  13. Reds come back in ninth, beat Pirates in 10

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Jordy Mercer

    A Jordy Mercer error on a routine grounder to shortstop opened the door for the Reds to score three runs in the ninth, and Joey Votto hit a go-ahead homer in the 10th as Cincinnati won in Pittsburgh 6-5 on Friday. The result leaves the two teams with identical 88-66 records behind the soon-to-be 90-64…

  14. Do the Reds have enough money to re-sign Shin-Soo Choo?

    Sep 20, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    billy hamilton shin-soo choo getty

    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,…

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

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    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…

  16. HBT Daily: Hamilton’s speed is a game-changer

    Today Kay and I talk about Billy Hamilton and a couple of important Atlanta Braves.

  17. Billy Hamilton had a whale of a game in his starting debut

    Sep 19, 2013, 8:21 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 19, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 5, Red Sox 3: Chris Davis with a two-run single in the 12th to win the game. Wei-Yin Chen gave up 11 hits but someone only three runs in five and two-thirds. Baltimore remains one back in the wild card. The Sox’ magic number for the division remains at three. Braves 5, Nationals 2: They’re…

  19. The fastest man in baseball is making his first start tonight

    Sep 18, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    billy hamilton shin-soo choo getty

    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. Hamilton is playing center field and batting ninth against the Astros, with the Reds’ season-long center field, Shin-Soo Choo, shifting to left field. Through his first two weeks…

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

    Sep 18, 2013, 6:18 AM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    Rangers 7, Rays 1: The Rangers finally snap the skid. Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus homered and drove in three runs each to pull Texas back into a tie with Tampa Bay at the top of the wild card standings. Indians 5, Royals 3: Kansas City took a 3-0 lead into the sixth with the Indians…

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

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EDT

    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…

  22. The Roberto Clemente Award Nominees have been announced

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” Clayton Kershaw won it last year.  The 2013 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. And now my annual complaint, albeit a minor one: Baseball has set…

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

    Sep 16, 2013, 5:00 AM EDT

    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…

  24. Play of the Day: Carlos Gomez robs Jay Bruce’s three-run home run

    Sep 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    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…

  25. Johnny Cueto will make first start since late June on Monday evening against the Astros

    Sep 15, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    johnny cueto getty

    The Reds have a nice cushion on the Nationals for the second NL Wild Card spot and are only 2 1/2 games back in the National League Central division. Now comes a potential boost for the rotation. According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, right-hander Johnny Cueto will start for the first time…
