Can Jay Bruce and Zack Cozart rebuild their trade value?

With a trade of Brandon Phillips appearing unlikely after a pair of offseason misfires to the Diamondbacks and Nationals, Jay Bruce and Zack Cozart are the two remaining Reds regulars who can elicit a few decent assets from another club.

Searching for a weakness in Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta

After being named the 2015 National League Cy Young Award winner over Los Angeles Dodgers co-aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, expectations have never been higher for Jake Arrieta. Of course, a contributing factor to these expectations is the offseason excitement surrounding Arrieta's team, the Chicago Cubs, who has made significant, roster-defining splashes (Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist, John Lackey) in the free agent market. After finishing three wins short from an appearance in the World Series, it is safe to say team president Theo Epstein can taste the opportunity of finally...

Cincinnati Reds links - Franchise icon Bernie Stowe passes away

A sad day in the Reds world. News broke on Tuesday that longtime Cincinnati Reds clubhouse manager Bernie Stowe had passed away, and the outpouring of remembrances and condolences has been both enormous and - if you'd followed Bernie's lengthy career with the team - beautifully predictable.  By all accounts, Stowe was a pillar of the franchise, a man who spent the bulk of his life as the oil that kept the Reds' engine rolling and in tune, sentiments specifically expressed by team President and COO Bob Castellini in a statement yesterday. "There is no one in the Reds family more loved,...

2016 RR Community Prospect Rankings: Ian Kahaloa Is #29!

Kahaloa is Hawaii's way to say "RR's 29th best prospect." After only one day on our ballot, King Kahaloa swoops in and grabs the 29th spot on our prospect rankings. Small sample sizes be damned, the 5th-round pick had a promising start to his professional career.  He put together a solid 11.6 K/9 and 5.17 K/BB ratios in only 24 IP in Billings last season. He's only 18, so he is still raw and has a long way to go, but hopefully he continues to throw up these solid numbers as he develops. One more spot to go, so go vote. It will be good practice for November. Jose Lopez, 22, RHP Highest...
