    This is not a BSOHL post. This is a mere update to an injured player post. The player: Reds ace Johnny Cueto, who last we saw, was leaving the playoffs thanks to a bum oblique muscle. His general manager says he’s doing much better now, however: “Cueto’s in great shape,” Walt Jocketty said. “We just…

  2. Johnny Cueto cleared to begin throwing

    The last time we saw Johnny Cueto in action, he was walking off the mound in the first inning of Game 1 of the NLDS against the Giants due to an oblique injury. It’s fair to wonder how the postseason would have played out had he been healthy, but the good news for Reds fans…

  3. The Reds are interested in doing long term deals for Homer Bailey and Mat Latos

    Dec 5, 2012, 9:10 AM EST

    Mat Latos

    Last season the Reds did long term deals for Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. Now they’re thinking about locking up some pitching: they want to do long-term deals for Homer Bailey and Mat Latos, reports John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Bailey and Latos look to be long-term parts of the Reds rotation, with each…

  4. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EST

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  5. The Reds re-sign Jonathan Broxton to a three-year, $21 million deal

    Nov 28, 2012, 8:39 AM EST

    Jonathan Broxton

    UPDATE: Yes, it was close to Brandon League‘s deal. Ken Rosenthal reports that Broxton is getting three years and $21 million guaranteed. The salaries climb, paying him $4 million in 2013, $7 million in 2014, $9 million in 2015 and either a $1 million buyout or a $9 million option for 2016. That may seem crazy…

  6. R.A. Dickey wins Cy Young Award in the National League

    “There are people in and around the baseball world who give the knuckleball a bit of a knock,” MLB network analyst Dan Plesac said at the start of Wednesday night’s Cy Young Awards Show. Apparently those people are not well represented in the Baseball Writers Association of America. Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey was named the…

  7. Reds still hold the advantage in winner-take-all Game 5

    Oct 10, 2012, 8:15 PM EST

    Mat Latos

    Momentum, if such a thing exists in baseball, favors the Giants. Thursday’s matchup, Matt Cain vs. Mat Latos, would likewise seem to favor the Giants. And yet the Reds are still the better bet to win Thursday’s series-ending Game 5. – The Reds have home-field advantage. It didn’t count for much the last two days,…

  9. Reds remove injured Johnny Cueto from roster, activate Mike Leake for Game 4 start

    Oct 10, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Division Series - Cincinnati Reds v San Francisco Giants - Game One

    Johnny Cueto has been removed from the Reds’ playoff roster due to his strained oblique, which means he will not start Game 4 of the NLDS tonight and will not be eligible to pitch in the NLCS if Cincinnati advances past San Francisco. Cueto exited his Game 1 start after just eight pitches and given…

  11. Johnny Cueto ruled out for Game 4, but replacement is TBA

    Oct 10, 2012, 10:15 AM EST

    cueto getty

    Yesterday when the Reds announced that Johnny Cueto has been diagnosed with a strained right oblique muscle they initially left open the possibility that he could start today’s Game 4 against the Giants. That always seemed incredibly unlikely and sure enough just hours later manager Dusty Baker officially ruled out Cueto for the start. However,…

  12. Giants break through in 10th inning of NLDS Game 3 against Reds to avoid elimination

    Oct 9, 2012, 9:32 PM EST

    Scott Rolen ranks among the best defensive third basemen in major league history and catcher Ryan Hanigan had a fantastic season behind the plate. But baseball can be an incredibly cruel sport. Hanigan let a Jonathan Broxton pitch get to the backstop with two outs in the top of the 10th inning, allowing Buster Posey…

  13. Johnny Cueto diagnosed with mild oblique strain, remains on Reds’ roster for now

    cueto getty

    Johnny Cueto left his Game 1 start in the first inning with what was initially said to be back spasms, but the Reds have diagnosed him with a mild right oblique strain. Not only do they remain undecided about removing Cueto from the playoff roster–which would make him ineligible to return before the World Series–the…

  15. For the Reds it’ll be Homer Bailey in Game 3

    Oct 8, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    Homer Bailey AP

    Johnny Cueto only threw eight pitches in Game 1 of the NLDS on Saturday because of back spasms. Because of the nearly non-outing, there was hope that he could come back to pitch Game 3.  That’s not happening, though: last night Dusty Baker announced that it would be Homer Bailey. The Reds are being cautious with…

    I know a lot of you are at-work-only readers and actually try to have lives and/or watch football on the weekend. Whatever, I can’t stop you from doing silly things. If you are one of those people with bad priorities, however, we would like you to know that there was all kinds of fun playoff…

  17. Offense’s disappearing act leaves Giants on cusp of elimination

    Oct 8, 2012, 1:16 AM EST

    Buster Posey

    The stunning thing about the Giants’ success this year was the way the offense fueled the team in the second half, even with All-Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera gone due to suspension. The Giants ranked third in the NL with 380 runs scored in the second half. Only the Brewers (392) and Nationals (383) were…

  18. Bronson Arroyo baffles Giants as Reds cruise to 2-0 series lead

    Oct 8, 2012, 12:57 AM EST

    Bronson Arroyo

    After 13 years in the bigs, Bronson Arroyo finally has a postseason victory to his credit. He was nearly perfect for seven innings Sunday in combining with two relievers on a two-hit shutout as the Reds topped the Giants 9-0. The Reds will take a 2-0 series lead with them as they go home for…

    Reds ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from Saturday night’s NLDS Game 1 victory over the Giants after just eight pitches because of back spasms. He appeared to be experiencing a considerable amount of discomfort while he sauntered from the mound to the visitors dugout, but some positive early signs have given hope to the Cincinnati…

  20. Brandon Phillips’ star turn guides Reds to Game 1 win

    Oct 7, 2012, 1:05 AM EST

    Brandon Phillips, Marco Scutaro

    Sure he’s a two-time All-Star, but maybe Brandon Phillips is feeling a little anonymous in Cincinnati. He certainly increased his profile Saturday as the Reds beat the Giants 5-2 in Game 1 of the NLDS. Let’s run through the highlights: – Phillips opened the scoring in the third with a two-run homer off Matt Cain.…

  21. Buster Posey gets Giants on the board with solo shot

    The Giants’ offense was dormant through the first five innings of this NLDS Game 1 despite the early exit of one Johnny Cueto. But it woke up in the sixth. MVP candidate Buster Posey hit a leadoff homer over the left field wall, then Hunter Pence smoked a Mat Latos pitch that was caught by…

    The Reds lost their ace in the bottom of the first inning to a back injury, but they have an early lead in this NLDS Game 1 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Drew Stubbs hit a leadoff single in the top of the third inning, then Brandon Phillips waited on a hanging curveball from Giants…

    Brutal development for the Reds out in San Fran. Staff ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from Saturday night’s NLDS Game 1 against the Giants just eight pitches in after appearing to tweak his side or back on a delivery to No. 2 hitter Marco Scutaro. Cueto immediately hunched over after the toss and walked off…
