    Nov 8, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Hunter Pence Reuters

    Pop quiz, hot shot! You traded for an outfielder in the middle of the year who often looked helpless at the plate. He was a nice guy and had character, though, serving as a great cheerleader. And hey, you won the friggin’ World Series, so it’s not like his presence in the lineup every day…

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

    Oct 17, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Ryan Ludwick

    Jon Heyman says that Ryan Ludwick will turn down his part of the $5 million mutual option he was with the Reds for 2013.  The Reds, however, will still try to keep him. A no-brainer for Ludwick, who put together a nice season — .275/.346/.531 with 26 home runs, 80 RBI — and is entering…

    Bottom of the sixth inning, the Reds coming back. A Ryan Ludwick homer brings them to within three runs.  Then, Jay Bruce walks, Scott Rolen singles, putting Bruce on second. Ryan Hanigan comes up to the plate — still no one out — and works the count full.  Matt Cain is on the ropes! Then…

    San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Three

    Dusty Baker is going with Scott Rolen in the decisive Game 5. Baker’s quote: “That’s what got us here.”  I agree. If Rolen had not been in the lineup for Game 3, there is every reason to think that the Reds would not be playing in a Game 5 … Here’s the Reds lineup for today’s game:…
