Reds fall to Diamondbacks in 11, Finnegan Masterful

baseball happened The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Brandon Finnegan pitched incredibly well tonight, putting up a career-high TWELVE STRIKEOUTS while issuing only 2 walks. Yeah. He was good. There wasn’t really much else that happened in this game. Just kidding I typed this during the 7th inning and of course a lot more happened. You can read about it in Key plays, but Joey Votto got on base four more times tonight, so that deserves a mention. Key Plays Our boys got off to a good start, with Schebler driving in Duvall to give us an early 1-0 lead in the second. The...

#REDS MINOR LEAGUE SPOTLIGHT

Farmers Only: Stephenson bounces back

Louisville 9, Indianapolis 2 Robert Stephenson heard (even if he didn't like it) the criticisms laid down by his manager after his last start and responded with a much better start.  Stephenson pitched 6 innings and gave up 2 earned runs.  He allowed 5 hits, 3 walks, and struck out 7.  The walks are still higher than you'd like, but you gotta like the uptick in strikeouts.  A.J. "Hal" Morris (2 K's), Matt "Mr. Magoo" Magill, and Stephen "Big" Johnson (1 K) all pitched a scoreless inning.  Dilson Herrera was 2 for 5 with a solo dinger and 2 RBI.  Hernan "The Destroyer" Iribarren just...

Cincinnati Reds links - The team's next big acquisition

Thursday links! Over at FanGraphs, Craig Edwards looked at the 2016 relationship between team payroll and wins, and it's a pretty fascinating study.  It's one he's looked at in the past, too, and he also does good work by using an estimate for financial clout beyond just seasonal payroll - franchise value - to look at how money muscles play a part in teams being better than the penny poor.  I do wonder, however, how much the relative preponderance of teams overtly "tanking" in this particular season skewed the overall results, since it certainly seems that was much more pronounced in...

18 Games at a time - Capsule 7

Selective end points on the 2016 Reds, part 7. It's pretty hard to believe, but the 2016 Cincinnati Reds are playing pretty good baseball right now. In fact, they are actually kind of fun to watch. I know it is hard to believe, especially after watching this same team suit up and produce results through the first 3 months of the season that were pretty much the opposite of what we are seeing now. I certainly didn't think that I would be writing about this in August, but the 2016 Reds are putting out a product worth watching, and they have been for over a month now. How many teams in the...

Reds rough up Yu Darvish, but fall to Rangers, 6-5

A decent offense against one of the game's best pitcher still wasn't good enough on Wednesday. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game There was no clear star for the Cincinnati Reds in this one, as instead they sported a balanced attack that pretty much all chipped in in various, slightly less-than-optimal ways. Is that a cop-out?  It's probably a cop-out.  So sue me. Adam Duvall walked twice and scored.  Scott Schebler singled, walked, and scored twice.  Eugenio Suarez walked twice and scored once.  Ramon Cabrera, thank his soul, smacked the team's lone extra-base hit and...
