Happy 10th birthday, Red Reporter

Today's Red Reporter's 10th birthday. It's been a wild ride. We've talked to players, coaches, hall of famers. We've broke news, started feuds, and done our damnedest to make this place a place where Reds fans (and fans of other teams) can come to discuss anything and everything under the sun. The community here is what makes this place special, and I absolutely believe that to be the most crucial thing for us to keep intact going forward. We've had a great time this past week going over the best work and the people who made this place what it is, but when it comes down to it, the community...

RR Classic: Royal Meridian or the Evening Blueness in the Central - A 2013 Kansas City Royals Preview

Ed. Note: Far and away the best of the 2013 alter ego previews was Farney Fool's preview of the Kansas City Royals as Cormac McCarthy. This is seriously one of my favorite things I've ever read on this site. Bon appétit. Dear friends my name is Cormac. I am a writer and teller of truths. I once stated: There's no such thing as life without bloodshed. I think the notion that the species can be improved in some way, that everyone could live in harmony, is a really dangerous idea. Those who are afflicted with this notion are the first ones to give up their souls, their freedom. Your...

Musketeers Use Second Half Comeback to Top Blue Demons, 89-76

Musketeers Use Second Half Comeback to Top Blue Demons, 89-76

The Xavier men's basketball team used hot shooting in the second half to stay perfect at home, knocking off DePaul, 89-76, at Cintas Center on Saturday afternoon. Myles Davis and Trevon Bluiett each set a new career high to help Xavier (13-7; 4-4 BIG EAST) overcome a 10-point second half lead for the Blue Demons, the largest second-half deficit the Musketeers have overcome this season.

MERCURY MARTY RECAPS DAY TWO OF THE #REDSCARAVAN

“I love you guys!” That’s a salutation that echoes throughout every facility with which we grace our presence…without any exception. Knowing us as you do, we never tire of hearing it. We would be less than honest, however, to admit that we are shocked or surprised at having people tell us that. We are not […]

Red Reporter Belated Exit Interviews: JD Arney

To conclude this series, we go to the man who started it all. JD founded Red Reporter 10 years ago this weekend, and we're lucky enough to hear from the man himself about how things got off the ground here. Enjoy. Can you remind us again about how Red Reporter came about? First of all I'm fighting the urge to write 3500 words on the Australian Open and the Buckeyes national championship per Brendan's comment here: http://www.redreporter.com/2015/1/20/7863041/red-reporter-belated-exit-interviews-rijosabocaseywkrp#284744132 But I'll refrain. Somewhat boring origin story: I started a Reds...

Red Reporter Classic: It's Hotels and Whiskey and Sad-Luck Dames

In my opinion, one of the best-written pieces ever on the site was Cy Schourek's tribute to Ryan Freel. This was published shortly after his death in 2012, near the holidays, and is just a piece of damn beautiful writing. Enjoy. I'm obviously not more prepared or entitled to write a Ryan Freel tribute than any of you, and I hope you all choose to write/sing/draw/think your own. I didn't even think that I would be writing something like this, stuck as I was in the same state of "dang"itude as the rest of you. But last night I was stuck at a party full of septuagenarians telling jokes in a...

Milton Loo Has a Posse

A decade back on a top prospect Innocence is just a polite way to call someone stupid. And a lot of what a certain type of sportswriter mythologizes about the innocence of sport isn't about transporting one back to the time when they were a boy, but more about how that man on tv did a thing that make the writer clap and hoot like The Judge's Idiot. It'd be nice to call 2005's baseball (and 2005's Red Reporter) a more innocent time, but that would smell faintly ridiculous. The value of on-base percentage was hotly debated, and pitcher wins...not so much. Adam Dunn was a talisman but...
