The pine

Much attention has been put on the Reds’ situation out there in left field this offseason, leading to the trade for Marlon Byrd. Some think Byrd isn’t a large enough improvement to make a difference in the 2015 Reds. Even if that ends up being the case there still remains another way to drastically improve …

Red Reposter - Don't Be the Phillies Edition

Hump Day, baseball links style. Grant Brisbee is a funny frickin' ha-ha who makes the funny frickin' ha-ha corner of the interwebs the single best part of the interwebs.  Being the technical wonk that he is, he took to graphically indicating the current plights and paths of each of MLB's 30 franchises, and according to him, there ain't a team in baseball more like the woeful Philadelphia Phillies than your very own Cincinnati Reds.  Frankly, I wonder how much closer they'd have been prior to Ruben Amaro's lassoing of Walt Jocketty in the Marlon Byrd trade.  Sigh.  The caveat for the...

Red Reposter - Byrd, Bullpen, & Bounce-backs

Some Sunday links while you're either watching the Bengals or talking about how dumb football is. The Enquirer's John Fay cranked out a bit on new Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd yesterday, and he highlighted a commonly quoted phrase we've become oh-so-familiar with every offseason since the emergence of the current team's core:  the way he plays the game. The preponderance of Walt Jocketty and the front office bringing in aging veterans rounding out their final contracts has become something of a meme here at Red Reporter, and him saying "We take a lot of stock in guys like that" may...

Marlon Byrd, gravity and low bars

Marlon Byrd was a cheap acquisition. With the Phillies kicking in $4 million for 2015, Byrd’s cost to the Reds is just a cool $4 million. Heck, the team is spending more than that to pay a 36-year-old outfielder not to play for them. Byrd’s vesting option for 2016 is unlikely to be triggered. If …

Oh, Ben Lively, We Hardly Knew Ye

For a while you were the Byrd with the word. Yesterday, Charlie Scrabbles wrote a wonderful article about the abysmal situation the Reds had in left field and if Marlon Byrd could or could not solve that problem.  Walt Jocketty was prompt with his trolling of Red Reporter when he traded for Marlon Byrd literally like an hour later.  If I was Charwry Scrabs I'd be sending shitty emails to the Jockster.  I might even piss in his yard, but I'm not the man to gauge Senor Scrabbles actions. What we do know is the Reds traded Ben Lively for Marlon Byrd and 4 billion million dollhairs.  I'll...
