If you rebuild it, he will come

Photo by Michael Reaves/ It’s time for the Field of Dreams Game. It’s also time for the Reds to be something, anything. You’ve seen the movie. You know the line. If you build it, he will come. As the Cincinnati Reds descend upon the cornfields of Iowa for tonight’s Field of Dreams Game, they do so while stuck in the cellar of the National League Central yet again, fresh off a sweep at the hands of the New York Mets. They do so while Luis Castillo makes the New York Yankees look silly for the Seattle Mariners once a week, while Top 100 prospect lists become...

Farmers Only - Noelvi Marte homers twice in Cincinnati Reds farm debut

Farmers Only - Noelvi Marte homers twice in Cincinnati Reds farm debut

Photo by Sam Wasson/ Huzzah! It’s become pertinent that you familiarize yourself with the entirety of the Seattle Mariners organizational history over the last half-decade, seeing as the Cincinnati Reds have poached half their former farm while trading them big-league talent all year. The most recent example, of course, was the deal that sent ace Luis Castillo to Seattle just before the August 2nd deadline, something that already paid off well for the Mariners as Luis posted 6.2 rock-solid innings for them yesterday in their win over the New York Yankees in Yankee...

The way Luis Castillo dominates may look mighty familiar to Mariners fans

The way Luis Castillo dominates may look mighty familiar to Mariners fans

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The longtime Reds ace is obviously great, but the way he’s thrived this year is uniquely in keeping with what Seattle prizes. This is one of the easiest articles I’ve ever set out to write. RHP Luis Castillo, who is a Seattle Mariners starting pitcher and will take on the New York Yankees today, is one of the best pitchers in all of MLB. You can measure that by any number of metrics, as a 2.86 ERA and a 3.20 FIP are shiny enough, but there’s more to fawn over. When your numbers are in line with those of Gerrit Cole, Justin Verlander, Yu...

Cincinnati Reds to trade Tyler Mahle to Minnesota Twins, per report

Cincinnati Reds to trade Tyler Mahle to Minnesota Twins, per report

Photo by Lauren Bacho/ Deadline day drama! The Minnesota Twins are clinging to a 1-game lead in the American League Central at the moment, and are doing so despite a pitching staff that has combined for the 6th lowest total fWAR in all of Major League Baseball so far this season. Despite the best efforts of former Cincinnati Red Sonny Gray, their rotation’s 4.19 ERA ranks near the bottom third in all of baseball, and is clearly an area where the Twins would like to improve. Enter the Cincinnati Reds, who despite having dealt Luis Castillo to the Seattle Mariners still...

Mahle has strong outing, Reds hit 3 bombs in win over Orioles

Mahle has strong outing, Reds hit 3 bombs in win over Orioles

Photo by Andy Lyons/ The Reds’ bats were on fire tonight to back another strong start by Tyler Mahle. If tonight was Tyler Mahle’s last outing as a Cincinnati Red, it’s hard to imagine much better of a performance. After allowing a couple runs on 5 hits in the first 2 innings, Mahle put the hammer down and didn’t allow a base runner the rest of the way. In all, he threw 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits with no walks and 7 strikeouts. That’s a hell of a way to go out if his future holds the same fate as Tyler Naquin and Luis Castillo. I’d be remiss if I...

Reds vs. Orioles, Game 2: Preview, Lineup, Pitching Match-up

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Tyler Mahle takes the hill in what is likely his final start as a Red. For the second day in a row, the Cincinnati Reds took a lead into the late innings of a game only to watch that lead dwindle away. That has been par for the course all season but righting that ship is not the focus of Reds’ fans today. For the second time in a week, we prepare to watch a starting pitcher who has been a reliable cog in the rotation and wonder if this is his last start in a Reds’ uniform. Last week, it was Luis Castillo and that question was answered...
