Reds at Cubs, Game 2: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs 4:05 PM ET Jackson Stephens vs. Jon Lester Jackson Stephens is the latest Red to get the opportunity to make his case for 2018. It’s his 4th start of the year, his last one being a quality one against Boston. He actually faced the Cubs in a spot start in his big league debut in July, earning his first win. Go Reds!

Joey Votto reaches 100 RBI on the season, comment sections begin to implode

Joey Votto reaches 100 RBI on the season, comment sections begin to implode

[insert The Marcels ‘Blue Moon’ lyrics] Clocks stopped, computers froze, and smartphones everywhere automatically downloaded the entire U2 catalog today as the internet comment section world reacted to Joey Votto knocking in his 100th run of the 2017 season. Denizens of the nether-regions of Cincinnati Reds webholes reacted with a mix of shock, flatulence, and yawny qualifying statements at the once mythical happening, with one near-sighted fellow remarking "Well, actually it’s more like 94 arby-eyes if you account for the launch-angle revolution and the current run environment. In...

Reds at Cubs, Game 1: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs 2:20 PM ET Robert Stephenson vs. Jose Quintana Nothing at stake in this series, so it should be an opportunity for a few Reds to get a run-out to end the season. The Cubs have already clinched the NL Central, the Reds are already out of playoff contention. The Reds will give a final start of the season to Robert Stephenson, a player who after a rocky start to the season, has come on to make himself a serious contender for a rotation spot in 2018. He’s been a lot more comfortable over the past few months, and just goes to show how important “rebuilding”...

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Reds lose one run game, 4-3

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Reds lose one run game, 4-3

Seems to have been the theme over the last week of the season. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game What the hell, I’m going with Patrick Kivlehan. Despite making the final out in this one, Kivlehan put in a good showing, hitting his ninth home run of the year and reaching base another time on a single. He was responsible for two of the Reds three total runs today. Patrick’s line for 2017 isn’t what you would consider “good” in objective baseball terms. But, I’m sure it’s not the easiest thing to sit on the end of the bench throughout the entire summer while only...

Reds at Brewers, Game 3: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds at Milwaukee Brewers 2:10 PM ET Sal Romano vs. Brent Suter The Reds finally won a game, and the Brewers are officially out of the postseason. This makes today’s game an especially sweet getaway day, and will mark Sal Romano’s last start of the season. Romano would love to end the season on a good note. He struggled in his last home start, but had his best start of the season before that. Let’s hope today’s game is a bit more of the former. Go Reds!

You really ought to listen to Great American Dream

You really ought to listen to Great American Dream

If you have not already If you are the kind of person who would read something at this here bloghole, then you are probably the kind of person who still enjoys watching this Reds team at this point in yet another losing season. And if those two things are true, then I’d wager you’d like listening to C. Trent Rosecrans’ podcast series, Great American Dream. My guess is that some of you have listened to it already, but if you haven’t, you need to put it on your to-do list. The final episode of the series dropped this week. The podcast is remarkable in a number of ways. Trent follows...

Homer Bailey dominates as Reds defeat Brewers, 6-0

Homer Bailey dominates as Reds defeat Brewers, 6-0

The win ends the Reds 7-game losing streak. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Homer Bailey came into tonight’s game prepared to make his 18th, and final, start of the season. Although the season, from a results standpoint, may not have been what Bailey had in mind, the fact that he was able to get through 18 starts with no setbacks after missing basically 2 full seasons with injuries should be looked at as a positive for 2017. While he showed some flashes of his pre-injury self as the season went on, he saved his best performance for last. Against a Milwaukee team...

Reds at Brewers, Game 2: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds at Milwaukee Brewers 8:10 PM ET Homer Bailey vs. Brandon Woodruff Homer’s last start of the season, thankfully. He has been, without mincing words, not good since his return from injury. Hopefully he can bounce back after an offseason of rest where he isn’t recovering from an injury, but the pressure is going to be on him for next year. There’s very likely to be 5 healthy starters who will be better than him to start the year. Where does that leave him? Go Reds!

I don’t know about Adam Duvall

I don’t know about Adam Duvall

I just don’t know I’ve become pretty fond of Adam Duvall. He seems like a decent fella, you know? He grew up in Louisville and went to U of L. Midwestern folks always have a soft spot for local kids, especially in Cincinnati. Scooter Gennett gives y’all high fives, by the way. I think what I like best about him is how unique a type of ballplayer he is. He is a two-tool guy, but with the unlikely combination of defense and power. Off the top of my head, I can’t really think of anyone else in the league that fits that profile as dramatically as he does. But I’ve also only taken...

The Reds get Decked early, can’t rally late, lose by one run again 7-6

The Reds get Decked early, can’t rally late, lose by one run again 7-6

Deck McGuire puns! The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The Reds did a lot of good things tonight. Joey Votto hit once, had an RBI, and walked twice because he basically lives on base. Scott Schebler hit twice, including a dinger. Zack Cozart dingered and walked. Billy Hamilton hit a freakin’ triple. The scuffling Adam Duvall hit twice, even. Luke Ferrell dealt out of the bullpen again, as did Michael Lorenzen, and, God love him, Ariel Hernandez didn’t allow a run despite himself. None of it was good enough to win and it got me thinking... there are a lot of you out there...

Reds at Brewers, Game 1: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds at Milwaukee Brewers 7:40 PM ET Deck McGuire vs. Zach Davies The Reds embark on their last road trip of the season, beginning with a 3-game set in Milwaukee. Leading off on the mound will be Deck McGuire, the 28-year-old rookie who’s looked good since being called up. He’s pitched 5+ innings out of the bullpen at the big league level, and after being drafted by the Blue Jays in the first round in 2011, has endured a long road to the big leagues. Hope he enjoys himself. Go Reds!
