Reds, Mets considering trade of Jay Bruce for Zack Wheeler

Reds, Mets considering trade of Jay Bruce for Zack Wheeler

The Mets need offense. The Reds need everything. The July 31st non-waiver trade deadline is now less than 20 hours away (4 PM ET on Friday), and big name after big name has been on the move in one of the more active weeks in recent memory.  The Cincinnati Reds, though, have been rather quiet since trading free-agent-to-be Johnny Cueto to the Kansas City Royals earlier this week, and that's despite them possessing multiple attractive trade pieces. One such piece is RF Jay Bruce, and it appears that the offense-starved New York Mets have eyes on him after Wednesday's deal for Carlos Gomez...

Cincinnati Reds Links and Hidden Pop Music for 7/30/15

How many days are in July again? I know the trade deadline is the end of July, but I can never remember that rhyme that tells me how many days are in each month "remember, remember, the month with 29 days is September" ? Whatever. Anyway, the trade deadline is soon-ish, so a flurry of deals are coming through - former Red Mat Latos to the Dodgers, Brandon Moss to St. Louis, Cole Hamels to the Rangers. No activity for the Reds after the Cueto trade - the last information still putting the Diamondbacks and Reds in the "some kind of mouth-sounds were exchanged" category on Chapman. Some...

Farmers Only: In like a Lamb, out like a Lion

Props to our blog friend Unmitigated Audacity for the title. His check is in the mail. Louisville Bats 2, Charlotte Knights 6 The headliner here is newly minted Cincinnati Reds farmhand John Lamb, a once highly touted prospect in the Kansas City system and one part of the trade for Johnny Cueto. Lamb's night got off to a rough start; all 3 runs that he gave up came in the 1st inning along with 3 hits. Lamb settled down and finished his first Bat outing with 5 IP, 6 H, 3 BB, and 8 SO. Less of the start, more of the finish, kid. It didn't really matter, because the damage would prove to be...

Reds 1, Cardinals 0 - Anthony DeSclafani blanks St. Louis

A series victory in St. Louis! The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Anthony DeSclafani is no Johnny Cueto - at least not yet - but there's no denying that the Cincinnati Reds rookie pitched like his ace-y former teammate against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.  Disco allowed just 3 hits in his 7 IP, walked 3, struck out 3, and in the process dropped his season ERA to a very respectable 3.75 with his evening worth of work. DeSclafani went through a rough patch for a period of about 8-10 starts, but he seems to have righted the ship of late, and that bodes quite well for...

Reds at Cardinals, Game 3: Preview and Predictions Thread

Cincinnati Reds @ St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 29, 20158:15 PM EDTPooptown Anthony DeSclafani vs. John Lackey No trades today,  but that doesn't mean we can't have fun watching the Reds. Disco takes the ball tonight, in a taste of what we can expect from the future of the Reds' pitching staff. He was good in his last start in Colorado, only giving up 3 runs in 7 innings. He'll face John Lackey, who's on a spectacular run right now. He's got 8 quality starts in a row, and hasn't given up more than 2 runs in a start since June 8th. Good luck, Reds lineup. No #hugwatches today,...
