  1. Eric Hinske joins the Cubs’ coaching staff

    Dec 3, 2013, 3:45 PM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Atlanta Braves, Game 3

    Eric Hinske isn’t wasting any time going from playing to coaching, joining new Cubs manager Rick Renteria’s staff as first base coach. Hinske played for the Diamondbacks this year, hitting .173 in 52 games to finish up a 12-season career in which he won a Rookie of the Year award and then went on to…

  2. Shane Victorino ties post-season record with ninth HBP

    Oct 13, 2013, 8:37 PM EST

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino moved into a tie with Alex Rodriguez for the most post-season HBP’s in the bottom of the first inning of NLCS Game 2. Tigers starter Max Scherzer drilled Victorino in the left shoulder with a 91 MPH fastball, his ninth career in the post-season. The errant pitch put a runner…

  3. MLB making print, video tributes to Mariano Rivera

    Not many retiring ballplayers get special recognition by Major League Baseball. I didn’t see Carlos Lee and Scott Proctor getting this treatment. But Mariano Rivera is a special case. Here’s the ad which will run in Thursday’s USA Today, New York Daily News, New York Post andMetro NY: And here’s a video tribute produced by MLB Video. OK,…

  4. The Marlins sign Casey Kotchman

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:31 PM EST

    Casey Kotchman

    The Miami Marlins just announced that they signed Casey Kotchman.  Not gonna say Casey Kotchman doesn’t streak across my radar very often, but I had no idea that he wasn’t on a team. This time next year I imagine he’ll replace Miguel Cairo as that guy I am shocked to learn is still in baseball…

  5. Miguel Cairo retires, joins Reds front office

    Feb 14, 2013, 2:44 PM EST

    miguel-cairo-reds

    Miguel Cairo is retiring after a 17-year career, but he’s staying with the Reds and moving into the front office as a special assistant to general manager Walt Jocketty. That makes sense, because Cairo was seemingly beloved by every manager and general manager he ever played for, which is how you play 17 seasons in…

  6. Scott Rolen is still weighing a retirement decision

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:22 PM EST

    Scott Rolen

    ESPN’s Jayson Stark has the pre-turkey day scuttlebutt: On the one hand, Rolen had a pretty miserable NLDS against the Giants in October. On the other, he hit a pretty terrific .297/.376/.473 with five homers in 165 at-bats after the All-Star break. He’d seem to be quite an asset starting twice per week and teaching…

  7. Reds beat Cubs to become first team to clinch playoff berth

    Sep 20, 2012, 6:03 PM EST

    Johnny Cueto

    Trotting out a lineup that included just one regular, the Reds beat the Cubs 5-3 on Thursday to complete a three-game sweep at Wrigley Field and become the first team this year to clinch a playoff berth. The Reds got Johnny Cueto his 18th victory despite fielding a lineup that included Miguel Cairo at first…

  8. The Reds are just toying with the rest of the league

    Aug 29, 2012, 6:52 PM EST

    Miguel Cairo

    That’s my feeling anyway. Manager Dusty Baker went so far as to start Miguel Cairo at first base Wednesday, yet the Reds beat the Diamondbacks 6-2 to complete a three-game sweep in Arizona. Cairo, who entered the game with a .168/.198/.264 line in 125 at-bats this season, went 0-for-4. It should be noted that this…

  9. Johnny Cueto bests Cubs for NL-leading 16th win

    Aug 18, 2012, 4:54 PM EST

    Johnny Cueto continued to bolster his case for the National League Cy Young award this afternoon against the Cubs, giving up two runs over eight innings as part of a 5-3 victory in the first game of a doubleheader. Cueto is now the National League’s first 16-game winner. David Price of the Rays got there…

  10. Brandon Phillips could land on DL with calf strain

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:44 AM EST

    Brandon Phillips

    Brandon Phillips came back and played Monday after leaving Sunday’s game with a cramp in his left calf, but it appears he made the injury a whole lot worse tonight. MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon has the quotes from the Reds second baseman: The calf is no bueno right now. I tried to play [Monday] because the…

  11. Brandon Phillips gets hit in head, leaves game

    Jun 27, 2012, 2:42 PM EST

    Brandon Phillips

    Three innings after getting hit in the head during Aramis Ramirez‘s attempted steal of second base, Brandon Phillips left Thursday’s game against the Brewers. It was termed a precautionary move, suggesting that Phillips is expected to be fine. Miguel Cairo took over at second base for the Reds. Phillips had an RBI single the half-inning…

  12. Jamey Carroll’s hand is kinda gross, but he plays the game the right way

    Jun 8, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Cleveland Indians

    The biggest reason to click this link is to see a picture and video of Jamey Carroll‘s hand, which is totally gnarled, mangled and gross from a decade of playing the infield. The second biggest is to ask yourself why it is that no one ever writes stories like this about non-white, non-short, non-scrappy utility…

  13. Reds put Miguel Cairo on disabled list, call up Todd Frazier

    Apr 17, 2012, 1:50 PM EST

    todd-frazier-reds

    Cincinnati has placed veteran utility man Miguel Cairo on the disabled list with a hamstring injury suffered Saturday, calling up Todd Frazier from Triple-A to take his spot. Frazier was a 2007 first-round pick and was once considered a top prospect, but now he’s 26 years old and has hit just .261 with a .788…

  14. Brandon Phillips sits with sore hammy after landing big contract

    Apr 10, 2012, 6:14 PM EST

    Brandon Phillips

    It’ll be a few days before Brandon Phillips gets to start justifying the Reds’ $72.5 million commitment to him. Manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Phillips would miss three or four days because of a sore left hamstring, the Cincinnati Enquirer’s John Fay reports. Phillips, for his part, said he was ready to play. “His…

  15. Springtime Storylines: Have the Reds built themselves a World Series contender?

    Apr 2, 2012, 10:47 PM EST

    Dusty Baker, Scott Rolen

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: The Cincinnati Redlegs. The Big Question: Do the Reds have the pieces to compete for the 2012 World Series title?…

  16. Buster Posey catches two innings in first game since collision last May

    Mar 10, 2012, 10:02 AM EST

    Buster Posey, Rob Drake

    We’ve provided pretty consistent updates on Buster Posey since his season ended last May with a broken leg and torn ankle ligaments following a collision with Marlins’ outfielder Scott Cousins. But after months of talking about the latest step in his rehab process, we finally have some baseball results to pass along. Posey caught two…

  17. Reds re-sign utility man Miguel Cairo to two-year contract

    Dec 8, 2010, 4:49 PM EST

    miguel-cairo-reds

    I’m not sure why any team would feel the need to give a multi-year contract to a 36-year-old, career-long utility infielder with a lifetime OPS under .700, but the Reds did just that by inking Miguel Cairo to a two-year deal. In fairness Cairo is coming off one of the best seasons of his career,…
