The Pirates are looking to trade their former MVP, so here's an idea of how he would look on the Reds The baseball winter meetings are set to start next week and it is always one of my favorite baseball events. There is always a blizzard of trade rumors, and though most don't actually happen, there are always a good few that do. It's almost as good as watching actual baseball. One big rumor kicking around right now is that the Pirates are looking to move Andrew McCutchen. He had a rough year last season and they have a hotshot prospect ready to take his place and nobody really wants it to...

To discuss the greatest winter weekend of baseball As you may or may not know, Redsfest is occurring this weekend in Cincinnati. Well, you know now. I just told you. There are many ways to approach Redsfest, but here’s me: it is a silly Comic Con for people who like the best sports team in the world. Yes, the Reds will make money off of you and so will Pete Rose if you let them. But if you want to have a fun time and point out Arismendy Alcantara to a five-year-old hopped up on cotton candy, well where else will you get that chance? If you’re in the greater Cincinnati area, go check out...

We have no idea what we're doing. As always, we at Red Reporter gave you guys a list of stats and asked everyone to predict how they thought the team would do in regards to those stats. It turns out that a rebuilding team with a lot of injuries to the rotation can be a difficult thing to predict. A few observations: First of all, we all overestimated the overall performance of the team this season. Only two of us thought that we'd actually finish last in the division, and only 3 predicted that we'd have fewer than 70 wins. We also underestimated how many runs the Reds would give up, as...

Last year Adam Duvall could have walked through RedsFest and gone unrecognized. This year is different.

It's December, so the only baseball to talk about is all labor relations. I hope you had a hearty breakfast this morning, because this is gonna burn some carbs. Baseball has been doing really well in recent years, so there was little doubt in my mind that capital and labor interests would reach an agreement before the December 1st deadline. Turns out, they did! This is some complicated nit and grit about how the business of baseball works, so I figured it'd be a good idea to run down all the significant changes and how they might affect the way the Reds do their business. So let's run 'em...

Scraping the would-be scrap heap in search of a gem. Super Two status and service time manipulation aside, most major league teams get three full years of cheap, league minimum work from their players before they finally begin to get a bit expensive. That's when they're eligible for arbitration, which is a convoluted way of saying "that's when they can finally start to get paid for how good they've been at their job to that point in their careers." Of course, players only really get to benefit from that arbitration process and the raise it entails if the team that controls their rights...

Tuesday links! Assuming the MLB Players Association and MLB owners can hash out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement by the December 1st deadline, there will be be no lockout to disrupt the usual happenings of the MLB offseason. That means that the Winter Meetings - currently scheduled for December 4th through 8th in Maryland - will go on without interruption, and that’s where a large portion of league-wide offseason moves either go down or get started. Back in 2014, the Cincinnati Reds did much of the initial heavy lifting of this current rebuild during the Winter Meetings, trading...

Yes. A one-word response to that question might not be enough to convince you, so let’s take a closer look at Nathan Eovaldi. Yesterday the New York Yankees announced that they had released the twenty-six year old starting pitcher. Eovaldi was entering his final season of arbitration eligibility, but with this move he’ll begin the free agent process a year early. Eovaldi has been something of a puzzle to baseball analysts throughout his young career. His velocity has always been tantalizing, but things just haven’t seemed to click for him through six major league seasons. So why...

A lumpy catcher and projectable OF The Reds announced, just in time for Redsfest, that 27-year-old catcher Juan Graterol and 22-year-old outfielder Gabriel Guerrero were added to the 40-man roster. They come from the Anaheim and Arizona organizations, respectively. Erstwhile reliever Keyvius Sampson and definitely a catcher Ramon Cabrera were DFA’d to make room. It is not worth getting upset about this move, but it’s hard to be too happy about it. Keyvius was one of the more fun live-armed relievers the Reds had, and it would be a shame to lose him. Ramon Cabrera was a...
