2017 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Jesse Winker is #2!

2017 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Jesse Winker is #2!

4 straight years in the top 5 for Uncle Jesse Two rankings down, two position prospects in the top two. Uncle Jesse Winker makes his last appearance (probably, hopefully) in the RR CPR, and after spending two seasons at number 1, he drops down to number 2 in our prospect rankings. It was a close race between Winker, Cody Reed, and Amir Garrett, but the outfielder pulled away at the end of the day. Tyler Stephenson joins the list today as we decide on the 3rd best prospect in the system. Amir Garrett, SP, 24 Highest 2016 Level: AAA (Louisville) Eye-Poppingest Fact: 144 innings pitched,...

Reds sign RH reliever Louis Coleman to minor league deal

Reds sign reliever Louis Coleman to minor league deal

Reds sign reliever Louis Coleman to minor league deal

More bullpen depth, more bargain hunting. Searching the bargain bin for veteran arms to bolster the pitching staff has been a hallmark of Cincinnati Reds offseasons during the team’s rebuild. It’s how they landed Blake Wood, Alfredo Simon, Dan Straily, and Ross Ohlendorf last year, and both Kevin Gregg and Jason Marquis joined the Reds in similar fashion in 2015. (Good lord, 2015 was awful. I digress.) Cincinnati continued with that pattern on Tuesday, signing former Los Angeles Dodgers and Kansas City Royals reliever Louis Coleman to a minor league deal, as the team announced on...

Joey Votto’s favorite pitchers

Joey Votto’s favorite pitchers

Who has served him the finest meatballs? It’s impossible to lay claim to a career batting line of .313/.425/.536 in over 5400 career plate appearances without having completely owned a lot of pitchers in that time. Yes, Joey Votto has punished many a pitcher in his day, his career 157 OPS+ a pretty solid indicator of what happens when a mistake pitch crosses some part of his plate. For Red Reporter’s We Love Joey Votto Week, I thought I’d dive into Votto’s history against every pitcher he’s ever faced to find out which particular hurlers have felt his wrath in the greatest...

2017 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Nick Senzel Is Your #1 Prospect!

Are you really surprised? The people have spoken.  The people have spoken.  By a resounding margin, the great people of Red Reporter have selected Nick Senzel as their #1 prospect.  You guys made it look like an easy decision, which I guess when you'e voting for a 2nd overall pick it kind of is.  I thought about just giving you the same players to pick from as you decided our #2 prospect, but we'll throw another new blood prospect into the list. Amir Garrett, SP, 24 Highest 2015 Level: AAA (Louisville) Eye-Poppingest Fact: 144 innings pitched, 2.55 ERA, 3.7 BB/9 Most Worrisome Fact:...

22 reasons why Reds fans should love Joey Votto

22 reasons why Reds fans should love Joey Votto

Don’t listen to the radio, listen to your heart Joey Votto is the target of some wrong-headed abuse. Here, we are going to take the time to set it right. Here are 22 reasons, one for every million dollars Marty thinks he doesn’t deserve. These reasons are why you, a Reds fan, should love having Joey Votto play for your favorite team. 1: We’re glad we don’t have to do 37 reasons Joey Votto is underpaid. If you assume about $5 million per win above replacement (WAR) on the open market (in 2015, teams averaged $5.3M per win), Joey has to play at a little more than 4 WAR to be worth the...

Welcome to we love Joey Votto week!

Welcome to we love Joey Votto week!

Join us for a celebration of one of the best players in the game. Red Reporter readers, The last few seasons haven’t been the best for Reds fans. Since 2014, Cincinnati has lost a combined 278 games...and that is a lot of losing. We’ve watched fan favorites get traded, and opposing teams hit home runs at record rates. It’s possible you’ve asked yourself at least once over the past few years, “Why am I doing this to myself?” Yes, there have been plenty of reasons to be disappointed lately. Yet we shouldn’t allow that to blind us to the good things we do have. People can be so...

JPEG of the Year Tournament: match 3

JPEG of the Year Tournament: match 3

Murder Death Angels vs Schebler's Walk Off Rollin' along, folks. Here we have Murder Death Angels vs Schebler's Walk Off. I kinda dig the symmetry here, as one has to be considered a real low point of the season and the other one of the few high points. In one, the Angels' rotation chopped up the Reds' lineup into tiny little itty bitty pieces, even though they were one of the suckiest bunches out there. Conversely, the other celebrates Scott Schebler's inauguration after the Jay Bruce trade, a game against the Cardinals in which he blasted a three-run walk-off home run. Or maybe y'all can...

Dear BP: It’s Not You; It’s Us

Dear @DatDudeBP, Thank you for eleven great years of baseball. You’ve been a joy to watch. You made highlight reel plays like this: And this.. And this.. Not only were you awesome to watch on the field, but you’ve been great for the Cincinnati community too. Remember that time you went to some random dude’s little league game? How about the time you donated $32,500 to rebuild the Clark Montessori baseball field into Brandon Phillips Field? Awesome. The Cincinnati community-at-large loves you, the Reds fan base loves you, and the Cincinnati Reds franchise loves you...
