  1. Barry Zito is a reborn Christian, “really excited” about owning and shooting guns

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Barry Zito

    Barry Zito got tagged with some sort of hippie/playboy/zen master stereotype when he came up with the A’s. Since then most of that has been obscured by talk of his contract, his pitching struggles and then his nice little comeback the past season or so. But his interview in the May “GQ” reveals a much different Barry…

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

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  3. Ryan Hanigan placed on disabled list with oblique strain

    From MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon comes word that the Reds have placed catcher Ryan Hanigan on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle. Hanigan has also been dealing with a sore right thumb and seems likely to miss about three weeks. Corky Miller was called up from Triple-A Louisville to provide depth at…

  4. Zack Cozart hit on finger during bunt attempt

    Apr 20, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Zack Cozart

    After Shin-Soo Choo doubled to lead off the bottom of the 13th in this afternoon’s game against the Miami Marlins, Reds shortstop Zack Cozart attempted to sacrifice bunt to move the runner over to third with one out. Steve Cishek‘s sinker, which runs in on right-handed hitters, nailed Cozart on his finger. The 27-year-old was…

  5. Joey Votto is not struggling

    Apr 19, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    The good news: most people don’t think Joey Votto — who leads baseball by a wide margin with 24 walks and a .526 on-base percentage — is really struggling. The bad news: Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman, who has a large audience and is very persuasive, thinks Votto is struggling, according to Reds blog Red Reporter.…

  6. Reds batboy asked Todd Frazier to hit a home run. Frazier did.

    Apr 19, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Todd Frazier

    Fun story from C. Trent Rosecrans at the Cincinnati Enquirer about Reds batboy Ted Kremer. Kremer asked Todd Frazier to hit a homer. Frazier obliged. He also roots really hard for the Reds to strike out 11 hitters so he can get free pizza from La Rosa’s. Which, why anyone wants La Rosa’s pizza is…

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

    Apr 19, 2013, 6:48 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 10, Rays 6: Time to re-bookmark Matt Wieters Facts. The Chosen One’s grand slam in the 10th gives the O’s their 17th straight extra innings win. Diamondbacks 6, Yankees 2: Frankie Cervelli hit a homer to tie it in the ninth. He also had two — not one, but two — catcher’s interference calls.…

  8. No timetable for Johnny Cueto to resume throwing

    Apr 18, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    After Johnny Cueto was placed on the disabled list earlier this week with a lat strain, Reds manager Dusty Baker estimated that the right-hander would only have to miss around 3-4 starts. That could be overly optimistic. Reds head athletic trainer Paul Lessard told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer today that there is not…

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

    Apr 18, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

  10. Reds quickly finish off suspended game, winning 1-0 in ninth

    Apr 17, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    After trying and failing to wait out the rains Tuesday night, the scoreless Phillies-Reds game was suspended after 8 1/2 innings. When play resumed Wednesday, the Reds sent four men to the plate and all four reached, ending the game in less than 10 minutes. Zack Cozart singled, Joey Votto walked, Brandon Phillips reached on…

  11. Reds calling up top prospect Tony Cingrani

    Apr 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cincinnati announced that stud pitching prospect Tony Cingrani will be called up from Triple-A to replace the injured Johnny Cueto in the rotation beginning Thursday against the Marlins. Cingrani made his MLB debut with three relief appearances last September and the 23-year-old left-hander ranked among the top 100 prospects by both Baseball America and MLB.com…

  12. Scoreless in ninth, Phillies-Reds game gets suspended until Wednesday

    Apr 17, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Cincinnati Reds

    The Phillies and Reds combined on 17 scoreless half-innings Tuesday before rain delayed the game heading into the bottom of the ninth. With no end to the showers in sign, the game was suspended and will be picked up prior to Wednesday’s scheduled series finale. Kyle Kendrick and Homer Bailey battled in the pitcher’s duel…

  13. Video: Ben Revere’s incredible diving catch

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

    Ben Revere catch

    And that’s no hyperbole. In the second inning tonight at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Phillies center fielder Ben Revere went in full Superman-mode to rob Reds’ third baseman Todd Frazier of extra bases. Just the icing on the cake, he quickly got back on his feet and made a throw to double off…

  14. Johnny Cueto lands on disabled list

    Apr 14, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Johnny Cueto is going on the disabled list with a lat strain, tweets Ken Rosenthal. Cueto was removed after getting one out in the fifth inning of last night’s game with the Pirates with an apparent triceps injury. He was evaluated by team doctors today and the Reds have decided to play it safe with…

  15. Johnny Cueto leaves game with arm injury

    Apr 13, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    Johnny Cueto

    Bad news for the Reds: Johnny Cueto had to exit the game in the fifth inning with a right arm injury after getting one out in the fifth inning. He left after throwing a warm-up pitch. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer suggests it might be a triceps injury. The right-hander had held the Pirates to…

  16. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Apr 13, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

  17. Will Quentin get a greater suspension because Greinke was injured? Doubtful.

    Apr 12, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    carlos quentin getty

    After last night’s Dodgers-Padres brawl, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Carlos Quentin “shouldn’t play a game until Greinke can pitch.” It’s a totally understandable sentiment. Quentin’s idiocy has caused the Dodgers to lose a key cog in their rotation for a couple months in all likelihood, and it would hardly seem fair if Quentin…

  18. Carlos Quentin charges mound, Zack Greinke suffers broken collarbone

    Apr 12, 2013, 1:50 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke, Carlos Quentin

    Carlos Quentin charged the mound after being drilled by Zack Greinke, leading to a benches-clearing incident in the sixth inning of Thursday’s Dodgers-Padres game. Greinke, a right-hander, suffered a broken left collarbone in the fight that ensued and is likely DL bound. Don Mattingly, steamed after what turned out to be a 3-2 win, said…

  19. Yonder Alonso played second base last night

    Apr 11, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    yonder alonso second base

    Cincinnati traded Yonder Alonso in part because they had Joey Votto at first base and didn’t think he could hack it defensively at third base or left field. San Diego has been playing Alonso at first base, where he’s perfectly solid, but last night the Padres forced themselves into using him at third base ……

  20. Reds place Sean Marshall on DL, call up Logan Ondrusek

    Apr 10, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds Photo Day

    Sean Marshall was on the active roster but unavailable for the first week of the season due to shoulder fatigue, finally made his 2013 debut on Sunday, and is now headed to the disabled list with what’s being called tendinitis. Marshall threw a scoreless inning Sunday and an MRI exam revealed no structural damage, but…

  21. Today that annual diversity-in-baseball study comes out. Take it with a serious grain of salt.

    Apr 10, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Rico Carty

    Today is the day that the annual report from Richard Lapchick’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports at the University of Central Florida comes out.  He’s been doing this for years, and it always gets highlighted in the media, with headlines about how the number of U.S.-born black players in baseball is declining.  Which, yes, it…

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

    Apr 10, 2013, 6:53 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano, Yan Gomes

    Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

  23. Reds score nine times in ninth to embarrass Cardinals 13-4

    Apr 8, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    The joke was on Shin-Soo Choo for most of Monday’s Reds-Cardinals game, as the newly converted center fielder dropped a pair of Yadier Molina flyballs to give St. Louis three of its four runs. Then came the top of the ninth inning. With Cardinals closer Mitchell Boggs in a 4-4 game, the Reds exploded —…

  24. Adam LaRoche out Saturday with back stiffness

    Apr 6, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Adam LaRoche Getty

    According to Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com, Adam LaRoche is out of today’s lineup against the Reds due to a stiff back. He has been dealing with the issue over the past couple of days and made an early exit from last night’s 15-0 blowout loss after his condition worsened. It doesn’t sound like a major…

  25. Reds hit six homers, four off Dan Haren, in beating Nationals

    Apr 5, 2013, 10:21 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Cincinnati Reds

    Sweeping the Marlins wasn’t much of a tuneup for tonight; the Nationals gave up a whopping six homers Friday in a 15-0 loss to the Reds. Nationals pitchers had allowed just one run this season before Todd Frazier and Zack Cozart hit back-to-back jacks in the second inning tonight. Both would go deep again later…
