    After thoroughly dominating major league hitters over the first two months of the season, Aroldis Chapman finally gave up his first earned run tonight against the Pirates. And it was courtesy of some unlikely contributors. Chapman entered the game with the score tied in the 10th inning. He quickly gave up a leadoff ground-rule double…

  2. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Jun 7, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    The Question

    We did the Twitter questions thing again last night. Let’s go: Q: How do the Braves end up as “your” team if you grew up in WV, TBS? Yep. That and an electric attraction to Andres Thomas. Q: Will Ryan Braun be elected to start the All-Star Game even with the PED cloud over his head? He’s…

    Zack Greinke

    Brewers 8, Cubs 0: Zack Greinke mowed ‘em down (7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 12K). That young man is gonna make a lot of money when he hits free agency this fall. Blue Jays 4, White Sox 0: Brandon Morrow tosses a two-hit shutout. Dude has really put it all together this year. Braves…

    The first vote-tallies have been released from the All-Star Game. Gentlemen, start your outrage! Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp are Major League Baseball’s top overall vote-getters in the first balloting figures for the 83rd All-Star Game … Hamilton, a four-time A.L. All-Star, has received 2,587,991 votes as he attempts to make his fifth consecutive…

  5. Joey Votto really likes Minute Maid Park

    Jun 3, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Houston Astros

    Joey Votto hits everywhere, but he really, really loves hitting in Minute Maid Park. For his career, he’s 55 for 129 with five homers, 19 doubles and 23 RBI in 32 games there, for a line of .426/.479/.736.  That’s by far his best numbers at any park where he’s had 50 plate appearances or more.…

  6. So, the Padres won the Mat Latos deal?

    Jun 2, 2012, 9:46 PM EDT

    Edinson Volquez

    The way it’s worked out, the Reds’ Mat Latos and the Padres’ Edinson Volquez have made their starts on the same day five straight times now, making it hard not to compare the two. It’s a comparison Volquez is winning hands down. Volquez limited the Diamondbacks to two runs and four hits in six innings…

  7. The woman tied up in Aroldis Chapman’s room can’t keep her story straight

    I think everyone called this one as soon as we heard it: the woman who was found tied up in Aroldis Chapman‘s hotel room is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg. The Pittsburgh Gazette has details from her police interrogation: Pittsburgh detectives questioned a woman for nearly 12 hours about a bizarre robbery in…

  8. Police question the woman found tied-up in Aroldis Chapman’s hotel room

    May 31, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    chapman getty

    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…

  10. 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…

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

    May 30, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman Getty

    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…

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

    May 30, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    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…

  14. 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…

  17. 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…

  19. Reds fan catches back-to-back homers

    May 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    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…

    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,…

    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…

  23. The Reds are making Aroldis Chapman their closer

    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…

    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…

    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…
