Steelers, resurgent Bengals set to renew belligerent rivalry

PITTSBURGH (AP) The bad blood between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals is palpable, built on years of animosity and antagonism, hits that straddled the line between clean and dirty and others that leapfrogged across it all together.

Let’s figure out why Montana hates the Reds

Let’s figure out why Montana hates the Reds

Something is afoot in Big Sky country. There are two major tenets of Baseball Twitter. The first, of course, is to identify and celebrate each and every statistic of any ilk ends in ‘69,’ and if one doesn’t, create a new statistic that ultimately will. The second, though, is for all involved parties to retweet and discuss one topic and one topic only until every possible #taek has been divulged. Tenet two brings us here, now. Today’s overriding topic: the most hated MLB teams by each state, an exhaustive, parabolic study of fandom as dictated by state lines that I can only assume...

Cincinnati Reds links - Trading Billy Hamilton

Cincinnati Reds links - Trading Billy Hamilton

Monday links! There is hardly anything in common between how Billy Hamilton plays the game of baseball and how Jesse Winker does. Elite speed, elite defense, a throwing arm from the OF that’s gaining a reputation, and the occasional slap hit define how Billy’s carved out his career, while Winker burst into the Cincinnati Reds’ lineup with hitting, hitting, and pretty much just that - hitting. So, it admittedly sounds a bit weird to suggest that Winker’s emergence might have Hamilton’s playing days in Cincinnati numbered, since one is not the other’s direct replacement. However,...

Cincinnati Reds trade values, ranked

Which players in the system would bring the greatest return if moved? The Cincinnati Reds just wrapped their third consecutive 90+ loss season, one that once again did so while also falling in-line with expectations. No, the 2017 Reds weren’t really a disappointment in the standings, really, since by all accounts this Year 3 of The Rebuild was supposed to look rough around the edges, albeit with young, promising talent now doing the losing instead of aging veterans waiting to be traded. Fortunately, much of the latter half of that scenario played out true to form, with many young,...

Five Reds set for hefty raises through arbitration process

Five Reds set for hefty raises through arbitration process

At least five, that is. Scooter Gennett, Billy Hamilton, Anthony DeSclafani, Michael Lorenzen, and Eugenio Suarez combined to make roughly $6.875 million combined in salary during the 2017 season. Barring trades (and assuming DeSclafani is finally healthy), all five figure to play significant roles again for the Cincinnati Reds in 2018, too - though this time, they’ll cost the club quite a bit more. MLB Trade Rumors released their estimates for all arbitration eligible players yesterday, and their rather exacting model has those five combining to earn $18 million combined in 2018. Gennett...

On trusting Brandon Finnegan and Anthony DeSclafani

On trusting Brandon Finnegan and Anthony DeSclafani

Can the Reds do just that? Devin Mesoraco will make over $13 million bucks during the 2018 season while also likely sitting on the bench for the majority of games. Adam Duvall, Jesse Winker, and Scott Schebler are three human beings who play corner outfield positions, of which there are only two in everyday lineups. Zack Cozart had a monster 5 WAR season, but is going to cost a pretty penny to keep around thanks to free agency. Oh, and mashing superprospect Nick Senzel is on the cusp of the big leagues with 2017 breakout performers Eugenio Suarez and Scooter Gennett now blocking him at his...

Cincinnati Reds links - New minor league affiliate, roster moves, & Shohei Ohtani

Cincinnati Reds links - New minor league affiliate, roster moves, & Shohei Ohtani

Thursday links! The Cincinnati Reds had pretty comfortably settled on their MiLB franchises over the last few years. Since moving their AA affiliate to Pensacola from Carolina prior to the 2012 season, the lone shake-up came when the club left the crumbling facilities in Bakersfield to begin a new advanced A-ball partnership in the Florida State League with Daytona three seasons ago. That, though, appears to be changing. The Reds won’t be vacating any current affiliate, however; rather, they’ll be picking up an additional one, as it seems they’ll add a short season Appalachian League...

For whom to root

For whom to root

A Redsfan’s guide to the 2017 postseason You know that baseball is really really super cool. You wouldn’t be eyeballing this bloghole if you thought otherwise. But alas, your Cincinnati Reds are not participating in this year’s postseason. They decided to give some of the not-as-cool teams a chance to have some fun. They are really nice like that. So what is a Reds fan to do? I figured I could put together a guide for you so you can get as much fun as possible out of Redless baseball. There may not be any Reds, but it’ll still be pretty fun, I bet. If you listen to me. National...

About those Five Dumb Predictions for the 2017 Cincinnati Reds

About those Five Dumb Predictions for the 2017 Cincinnati Reds

They were predictions, all right. Dumb ones. The bylaws of the Red Reporter Rites of Spring dictate that at some point immediately prior to the start of a regular season there must be prognostication. Hair-brained prognostication. Prognostication of the dumbest possible variety such that no one anywhere may potentially attach any shred of accountability with this particular blog site web hole place. (At least, that’s what I think I remember them saying, though there’s not actually ever been a concrete copy of those published.) Anyway, the outset of the 2017 Cincinnati Reds campaign...

The 2017 Cincinnati Reds existed, hopefully as a building block for the future

The 2017 season is kaput. The Cincinnati Reds, though, have much more going for them. Without context, 68 wins is a lot of wins. A lot! Sixty-eight times you got to tune in to watch the Cincinnati Reds win games this year. At some three hours a pop, that was 204 hours of your summer spent cheersing beers and high-fiving, a full two plus months worth of mornings you could wake up knowing the team you follow wholeheartedly had thumped their opposition the night before. Context is often a kick to the beans, however. Such is the case for those 2017 Reds, whose season is now finished as the MLB...

The Red Reporter Crock-Pot League

The Red Reporter Crock-Pot League

We did something kinda weird, but it was fun Baseball’s regular season wrapped up yesterday, so your Cincinnati Reds now begin a long winter layoff. We here at Red Reporter will try to help you cope with it the best we can. Towards the end of spring training back in March, I had a weird idea for a fantasy baseball league. See, I really like playing fantasy baseball, but with a job, a wife, a kid, and a handful of addictions, I hardly have time to manage a team over the long season. So the idea was to run a fantasy draft just before the season began and then never touch it again the entire...
