  2. Ranking the bullpens: 2014 edition

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens. To come up with the following bullpen ERAs, I simply combined each team’s seven highest-IP relievers, according to my projections. AL Royals – 2.93 Red Sox – 3.14 Athletics – 3.16 Rangers…

  3. Reds VP Bob Miller on the arbitration process: “It works poorly”

    Mike Leake

    The Reds avoided arbitration with starter Mike Leake and relievers Sam LeCure and Alfredo Simon earlier today, but were not able to do so with starter Homer Bailey and flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman. As a guest on The C Dot Show earlier, Reds vice president Bob Miller (who handles the arbitration cases for the club)…

    There’s a bullpen game underway in Cincinnati. Giants starter Barry Zito lasted just 2 2/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks. Reds starter Mike Leake was lifted in the fifth after yielding three earned runs on six hits and two walks. Tim Lincecum is in — and on a sort…

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

    Oct 7, 2012, 1:05 AM EDT

    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.…

    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…

  7. Johnny Cueto departs Game 1 of NLDS due to back spasms

    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…

  8. The Giants are not pleased at the Reds for throwing at Buster Posey

    Buster Posey, Tim Flannery

    Last night Joey Votto was plunked by Dan Otero in the seventh inning of the Giants-Reds game. If Otero was actually trying to hit Votto it was pretty remarkable, because that would have been the only spot he hit in what was an otherwise hellish night for the Giants’ reliever. ¬†Way more likely: ball actually…

  9. Reds “hold little hope of re-signing” closer Francisco Cordero

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    At one point this offseason the Reds were said to be interested in bringing back Francisco Cordero, but now John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that they “hold little hope of re-signing” the 36-year-old closer. Fay speculates that Cordero might even be willing to re-sign on a one-year deal because the closer market is…
