The rebuild is a lie

Don't let the Reds sell you on needing to suck. The Cincinnati Reds will not be competitive in 2016. I think we're all on the same page about that. Even if all those starters pan out, even if Winker pushes for LF by June, even if Eugenio Suarez becomes basically Hanley Ramirez...there's still a huge gap between these dudes here and those dudes in St. Louis, Chicago, and decreasingly so Pittsburgh. It's still baseball, and there's still Joey Votto, so it will still be fun. But the Reds will not be competitive in 2016. What to do about this? The Reds' new GM will probably shuttle off some...

Cincinnati Reds Links 11/21/2015

A roundup of links for your Saturday enjoyment According to Jon Morosi, the Reds and the Baltimore Orioles have discussed a possible Jay Bruce trade, but as of last night, there's no "momentum" toward an imminent deal.  As MLB Trade Rumors points out, it's difficult to know exactly what Bruce is worth at this point in his career.  Is the Jay Bruce of the last two years what we can expect from him going forward?  Or is he primed for a Votto-like bounce back season where he returns to pre-2014 form?  Either way, here's hoping the Reds remember what happened that other time they traded an...

MLB and Fox agree on in-market game streaming #jam

But what do Millennials think? Buried under the "Joey Votto snubbed for MVP" news from yesterday was this tasty little nugget from Maury Brown. Baseball and the loose coalition of FOX Sports regional networks that carry baseball games have come to a three-year agreement to allow live-streaming of games for in-network fans. Half of MLB teams have agreements with these FOX RSNs to carry their games, including your Reds, so a good majority of baseball fans will finally get to watch their favorite teams on the internet. This is huge, by the way. MLB.tv is really the primary way for fans to...

Bryce Harper wins MVP, Carpenter, Heyward, Rosenthal pick up votes

Bryce Harper won National MVP unanimously, but Matt Carpenter, Jason Heyward, and Trevor Rosenthal picked up down-ballot votes. Bryce Harper had an incredible season in 2015, hitting 42 home runs to go along with a .330/.460/.649 hitting line. This historic offensive output was rewarded tonight as Harper was awarded the National League MVP in a unanimous vote. Paul Goldschmidt received more than half of the second-place votes to finish in second, followed by Joey Votto, Anthony Rizzo, and Andrew McCutchen. Perhaps a testament to the total team effort put forth by the Cardinals as well as a...

SB Nation MLB Awards 2015: Pitcher of the Year Voting

Day 2 of the SBN Awards, and Joey Votto got the majority of your vote for Hitter of the Year. That makes sense, he's the best. Pitching is the focus today, and we've got nominees from both leagues. Clayton Kershaw 2015 Stats: 16-7, 2.13 ERA, 301 K, 42 BB, 175 ERA+, 7.5 bWAR Kershaw put in another solid showing, and could very well be on his way to his 3rd Cy Young aware this year. His 301 strikeouts were tops in baseball. Are his gaudy strikeout numbers enough to win him this award, or will a more surprising performance prevail? Jake Arrieta 2015 Stats: 22-6, 1.77 ERA, 236 K, 48 BB, 222...
