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

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:06 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Just gonna warn you: this was written as cold medicine was taking effect, with wine — ill advised, I know — and while listening to the new xx album. Lots of heavy stuff here, not best for reason or, for that matter, the reading of box scores.  But we’ll soldier through because this is the…

  2. Clint Hurdle is making Dusty Baker’s life easier

    Sep 11, 2012, 11:22 PM EST

    Pedro Alvarez

    The Pirates’ No. 4 hitter tonight, Garrett Jones, has hit .213/.254/.344 against lefties this season. The Pirates’ No. 5 hitter tonight, Pedro Alvarez, has hit .210/277/.387 against lefties this season. So, it was pretty much a no-brainer that Sean Marshall was coming in to face both with a man on first and one out and…

  3. Brandon Phillips, Jared Hughes made nice

    Sep 11, 2012, 4:11 PM EST

    Brandon Phillips

    In the wake of the Brandon Phillips-Jared Hughes dustup with alleged racial overtones last night, peace has apparently been achieved: Hughes, Phillips talked it out on phone. #pirates #reds Both sides put issue to rest. McCutchen was go between — Rob Biertempfel (@BiertempfelTrib) September 11, 2012   Thanks to Andrew McCutchen for playing the United…

  4. Reds worried about Aroldis Chapman’s diminished velocity, “fatigued” shoulder

    Sep 11, 2012, 10:15 AM EST

    Aroldis Chapman

    Aroldis Chapman was a mess last night, walking three of the five batters he faced after coming into a tie game in extra innings and being removed mid-inning for the first time all season. Within that ugly performance he threw 22 pitches and none of them topped 97 miles per hour while many of Chapman’s…

  5. Brandon Phillips accuses another player of racism

    UPDATE:  Peace has apparently been achieved. 6:35 AM: From the Twitter feed of Brandon Phillips after last night’s marathon game against the Pirates: #RealTalk… Not really surprised by what I heard come outta another player’s mouth tonite but DAMN… Still PISSED bout that $h¡+!! #Racism — Brandon Phillips (@DatDudeBP) September 11, 2012 No names attached,…

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

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EST

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  7. Reds reliever Nick Masset undergoes shoulder surgery

    Sep 10, 2012, 4:50 PM EST

    masset getty

    Nick Masset‘s season began with a spring training shoulder injury and has been filled with numerous setbacks since, and today the Reds announced that the reliever underwent surgery over the weekend. That means Masset will have gone from throwing 76, 77, and 70 innings (with a combined 3.15 ERA) out of the Reds’ bullpen during…

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

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:00 AM EST

    B.J. Upton

    Rays 6, Rangers 0: That, my friends, is B.J. Upton.  Three homers for big brother and a two-hit shutout for James Shields. This will make Rays fans feel really good until Texas bounces them easily in the division series again. Marlins 8, Nationals 0: The Nats have not won a game since they shut down Stephen…

  9. Johnny Cueto makes it just four innings against Astros

    Sep 9, 2012, 3:45 PM EST

    cueto getty

    R.A. Dickey is the NL’s new ERA leader. Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto, who had been wearing the crown, was hammered for four earned runs on nine hits Sunday afternoon against the Astros before exiting after just four frames. He struck out six and issued only one walk, but the typically light-hitting Houston lineup took advantage…

  10. Zack Cozart has a slightly strained oblique

    Sep 8, 2012, 7:03 PM EST

    zack cozart getty

    From Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds shortstop Zack Cozart was diagnosed on Saturday afternoon with a “slight oblique strain” and has already been ruled out of the team’s entire weekend series with the Astros. Cozart’s injury should be healed by early next week, but the Reds currently boast an 8 1/2-game…

  11. The Reds won’t be getting Bill Bray back this year

    Sep 7, 2012, 6:50 PM EST

    Bill Bray

    Bill Bray, Cincinnati’s talented but often injured left-handed reliever, is being shut down and sent home for the rest of the season. “He’s still on the DL,” pitching coach Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Fay. “He’s not going to be activated. He wasn’t going to pitch for us in September. He battled with…

  12. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EST

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  13. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 80-51

    Sep 6, 2012, 2:19 PM EST

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Here’s part two of the top 111 free agents list. Part one can be found here, and I’ll be posting the top 50 tomorrow. 80. Carlos Lee (1B Marlins – Age 36): Lee still hits a fair number of liners at age 36, but his home run total has dropped six straight seasons and he…

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

    Sep 6, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  15. R.A. Dickey defeats Cardinals, is first to 18 wins

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:42 PM EST

    R.A. Dickey

    If R.A. Dickey had fallen back a bit in the NL Cy Young race with his little rough patch after the All-Star break, he’s pretty clearly the favorite again now. Dickey allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings against the Cardinals on Wednesday to become the first major leaguer to reach 18 wins this season.…

  16. Joey Votto returns to Reds lineup for first time since July

    Sep 5, 2012, 12:16 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds v Houston Astros

    Joey Votto returned from the disabled list yesterday, but wasn’t in the Reds’ starting lineup and didn’t appear in the game off the bench. That all changes this afternoon, as Votto officially completes his comeback from knee surgery by being in the lineup for the first time since July 15. It’ll be interesting to see…

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

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:11 AM EST

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  18. Jay Bruce carries the Reds to latest victory

    Sep 4, 2012, 11:08 PM EST

    Jay Bruce

    Jay Bruce‘s burden is about to get lighter with Joey Votto expected to rejoin Cincinnati’s lineup Wednesday. Not that it’s bothered him so far. Bruce hit a two-run homer that gave the Reds’ their only runs Tuesday in a 2-1 win over the Phillies. It was Bruce’s third straight game with a homer. He’s hit…

  19. Joey Votto activated from DL, but not in Reds lineup tonight

    Sep 4, 2012, 3:15 PM EST

    Joey Votto Getty

    After having his return from knee surgery pushed back by one day Joey Votto has been activated from the disabled list, but he’s not in the Reds’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Phillies. Normally teams wouldn’t activate a player and then not play him because it would require sending someone else to the minors,…

  20. Royals prospect Wil Myers named Baseball America minor league player of the year

    Sep 4, 2012, 12:46 PM EST

    Wil Myers

    Baseball America announced its annual minor league player of the year today and the winner is Royals prospect Wil Myers, who hit .314 with 37 homers in 134 games between Double-A and Triple-A at age 21. J.J. Cooper’s lengthy article about Myers includes this interesting tidbit: He joins Paul Konerko, Troy Glaus, Jose Canseco, and…

  21. Reds decide to keep Joey Votto at Triple-A for one more day

    Sep 3, 2012, 11:17 AM EST

    joey votto getty

    Joey Votto was expected to come off the disabled list and rejoin the Reds’ lineup today, but his return from two knee surgeries has been delayed for at least one more day. Votto homered Saturday and then took Sunday off, but instead of playing against the Phillies this afternoon he’ll remain at Triple-A for Louisville’s…

  22. Joey Votto goes deep in fourth rehab game

    Sep 2, 2012, 11:38 AM EST

    joey votto getty

    Joey Votto is just about ready for active duty. The 28-year-old first baseman hit a solo home run Saturday in his rehab debut with Triple-A Louisville, finishing 1-for-3 with two strikeouts while feeling no lingering discomfort in his surgically-repaired knee. Votto went 1-for-5 with with an RBI and three walks in his first three rehab…

  23. R.A. Dickey tosses five-hit shutout vs. Marlins for 17th win

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:50 PM EST

    R.A. Dickey Getty

    UPDATE: Dickey and Cueto have some company. Gio Gonzalez just tossed a five-hit shutout of his own vs. the Cardinals for his 17th win. 9:50 PM: R.A. Dickey tossed a five-hit shutout tonight as part of a 3-0 victory over the Marlins, putting him into a tie with fellow National League Cy Young candidate Johnny…

  24. Joey Votto expected to come off the disabled list Monday

    Aug 31, 2012, 1:48 PM EST

    Joey Votto Getty

    There had been some speculation that Joey Votto would rejoin the Reds when rosters expand Saturday, but John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer now says he expects the former MVP to come off the disabled list Monday instead. That’s when the Reds return home to begin a three-game series against the Phillies and would give…

  25. Catch the Reds-Cardinals series tonight on “Caught Looking” at 9PM on the NBC Sports Network

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    NBC Sports Network

    Tonight’s Caught Looking, airing at 9 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network, goes behind the scenes at last weekend’s Red-Cardinals series. Spoiler alert! The Cards took two of three. But that’s OK, because that’s not the point of the show.  Here’s a preview. Note: Brandon Phillips should probably be miked up in every game, always.
