    The plot thickens in the weird Aroldis Chapman hotel robbery case. The woman who was found tied up in his room was questioned by police yesterday. And then she was released to her husband. Which is all well and good except: Mr. Chapman, a 24-year-old left-handed pitcher, told police that he and Ms. Manrique recently started…

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Mariners 21, Rangers 8: Look, we can point to Justin Smoak driving in a half dozen runs, Jesus Montero nearly hitting for the cycle or any number of other things as being the cause of this bloodbath. But the fact is, Derek Holland shaved his mustache the other day, and there is likely a causal…

  3. Jon Jay experiencing ongoing discomfort in right shoulder

    The Cardinals have been battered by injuries. And the troublesome news continues to flow. According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, center fielder Jon Jay is still feeling discomfort in his right shoulder and will pay a visit to a doctor Thursday in Florida in a search for answers. Jay has been on…

  4. Aroldis Chapman’s hotel room robbed; woman found there bound at the wrists

    This is … messed up. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Aroldis Chapman‘s hotel room in Pittsburgh was robbed while he was away, presumably at the ballpark or out after the game.  Which, OK, that’s unusual and strange. But what officers found at the scene of the crime is stranger: Officers who were dispatched to the…

  5. The Reds Todd Frazier saves a mans life with the Heimlich Maneuver

    todd-frazier-reds

    The headline says it all, but here’s Frazier talking about what went down in a Pittsburgh restaurant the other night: “We’re just eating there, talking,” Frazier said. “I looked in the corner of my eye. I said, ‘Ludwick, I think that guy’s choking.’ Next thing I know there’s two ladies one on each side, trying…

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Twins 3, Athletics 2: Holy ninth inning rally, Batman! Josh Willingham hits a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth off Brian Fuentes after the Twins were shutout for six innings by Jarrod Parker and two by Jerry Blevins and Grant Balfour. Angels 5, Yankees 1: The Angels win again and are now…

  7. Mat Latos gives up five runs, never works from stretch

    May 27, 2012, 4:02 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Reds right-hander Mat Latos had an odd outing Sunday: he allowed five homers but no other hits or walks in 7 1/3 innings in defeating the Rockies. Carlos Gonzalez hit two of the five homers off Latos, with Troy Tulowitzki, Michael Cuddyer and Dexter Fowler also taking him deep. Fowler’s homer in the eighth knocked…

    Angel Pagan

    Giants 14, Marlins 7: There have been times over the past couple of years when the Giants wouldn’t score 14 in a week. And when he played in New York and Atlanta, there were weeks when Melky Cabrera wouldn’t drive in four, but here we are. Angel Pagan did the same. The Marlins bullpen gave…

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Yankees 8, Royals 3: Alex Rodriguez would like the New York sporting press to write more career obituaries for him. It seems to suit him nicely (2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI). Reds 2, Braves 1: Todd Frazier hit a walkoff homer. It came off  Cristhian Martinez because, as everyone knows, Fredi Gonzalez would be drummed…

  10. Reds fan who caught two homers was honorary captain last night

    May 23, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Caleb Lloyd

    This is fun: Caleb Lloyd, the guy who caught the home run balls hit on consecutive plays on Monday, was the Reds honorary game captain last night. I’m guessing he also got the chance to meet Mike Leake and Zack Cozart, so there were all kinds of fringe benefits.  No word on whether, had the Reds…

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  12. Reds fan catches back-to-back homers

    Reds logo small

    Why, this is improbable. Reds fan Caleb Lloyd caught two home run balls last night. On back-to-back homers: The 20-year-old junior from Thomas More College was in left field when Reds pitcher Mike Leake hit his first career homer in the fourth inning. The ball went directly to Lloyd, who had never caught a ball at a…

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

    May 22, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Marlins 7, Rockies 4: Jamie Moyer pitched in his 50th different major league park. But he may have given up his longest most hellacious homer ever. Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam that went 438 feet in basically a straight line and broke the friggin’ scoreboard. Roy Hobbs stuff, there. Gave the Marlins the lead and,…

  14. Aroldis Chapman arrested in Ohio for driving 93 mph on suspended license

    Aroldis Chapman mugshot

    One day after officially being named the Reds’ closer, Aroldis Chapman is in some hot water. According to NBC affiliate WLTW, Chapman was arrested in Ohio early Monday morning after speeding while driving with a suspended license. Chapman was pulled over after being clocked at 93 mph in his 2010 Mercedes S63. That probably doesn’t…

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

  16. The Reds are making Aroldis Chapman their closer

    May 20, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    Sean Marshall has surrendered 22 hits and eight earned runs in 14 1/3 innings this year, struggling to solidify the Reds’ ninth-inning role. So changes are being considered at the end of the Cincinnati ‘pen. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds manager Dusty Baker spoke Saturday “about switching Aroldis Chapman into the…

  17. Scott Rolen might be done

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman provides the insight: There is no timetable for injured veteran third baseman Scott Rolen‘s return to the Reds, and there seems to be an uncertainty now whether he will be able to make it back at all. “I really don’t know” is how Reds manager Dusty Baker responded when asked Saturday about…

  18. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    A.J. Ellis AP

    A.J. Ellis continues to take advantage of his first chance at regular playing time in the big leagues. Ellis went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a walk-off walk in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals last night as the Dodgers improved to a major-league best 26-13 on the year. Of course, walks are nothing new…

  19. Andy Pettitte beats Reds with eight scoreless innings

    May 18, 2012, 9:55 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    It didn’t take Andy Pettitte long to find his mojo. He struck out nine in eight scoreless innings Friday as the Yankees beat the Reds 4-0 in the second start of his comeback. The Reds’ dysfunctional offense was no better tonight with designated hitter Ryan Ludwick batting in Bronson Arroyo‘s place. Manager Dusty Baker’s switch…

  20. Cubs drop Chris Volstad and his 7.46 ERA from the rotation

    May 18, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Chris Volstad

    Chris Volstad has been booted from the Cubs’ rotation and optioned to Triple-A after the 25-year-old right-hander went 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA in eight starts. Volstad’s secondary numbers aren’t nearly as bad as his hideous ERA and he was generally a decent back-of-the-rotation starter for the Marlins from 2008-2011, but it’s tough to stick…

  21. Dusty Baker has blown my friggin’ mind

    May 18, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Dusty Baker

    Dusty Baker is going to use Ryan Ludwick as his designated hitter against the Yankees this weekend.  This despite the fact that Ludwick is hitting terribly lately.  Why, Dusty?  Why are you using Ludwick? “I know everybody wants me to play the guy who’s hot, but what happens when the guy who’s hot gets cold…

  22. Aroldis Chapman is gonna be a setup man forever, I guess

    May 17, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman Getty

    Danny Knobler has a column up today asking a question a lot of Reds fans have probably been asking themselves for some time: why in the heck is Aroldis Chapman still the Reds’ setup guy? He hasn’t allowed a run all year. He has retired 22 of his last 24 hitters. He has a K/BB ratio…

  23. Mets designate reliever D.J. Carrasco for assignment

    May 17, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Carrasco_D.J.

    Within minutes of D.J. Carrasco serving up a homer to Todd Frazier last night the Mets announced that they’d designated the veteran reliever for assignment, removing him from the 40-man roster. When the Mets signed Carrasco to a two-year, $2.4 million deal last offseason it seemed like a solid pickup, as he’d posted a sub-4.00…

    Atlanta Braves v Colorado Rockies

    Rockies 6, Diamondbacks 1: I took my bike out for a spin for the first time in a while last evening. It was a nice ride on a nice night. At least apart from the crazy, over-the-handlebars wreck I got into at the corner of Alpath and Johnston Road. There were no apparent injuries at…

  25. Davey Johnson’s Daily “Henry Rodriguez is still our closer” update

    May 15, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Washington Nationals

    After Henry Rodriguez gave up that walkoff grand slam to Joey Votto on Sunday, Nationals manager Davey Johnson made it clear that Rodriguez is still the closer.  He had to do it again last night: “I still have utmost confidence in Henry,” Johnson said after the game. “That was his third day in a row going…
