WATCH: Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton Back to His Base-Stealing Ways Against Cubbies

Thursday night the Milwaukee Brewers pulled off something that no one had done this season to date--they threw out Cincinnati Reds speedster Billy Hamilton when he tried to steal. So it should come as no suprise that the next time he plays he comes back with a vengeance. Against Jon Lester and the Cubbies he got certainly got some. Through five innings he already has three stolen...

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (8-7) at Cincinnati Reds (8-8)

It’s been an eventful week in Cincinnati, which nearly reached Peak Reds before being eclipsed by whatever **** the Royals have been doing. Reds manager Bryan Price dropped a 77 f-bomb tirade at one of the Reds beat writers for actually reporting on the team instead of shilling/spreading false information for the team. I only regret that this wasn’t followed by Marty Brennaman...

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton Caught Stealing for First Time This Season

When the Reds called Billy Hamilton up from the minors they knew they were getting a guy that just needed to get on base to become  scoring threat.

Redmond, Price among MLB managers feeling early pressure

Three weeks into the 2015 MLB season, a handful of managers may already be feeling the pressure of making sure their teams fulfill expectations. Is it a coincidence that Reds skipper Bryan Price vomited a bucketful of F-bombs at Cincinnati Enquirer beat reporter C. Trent Rosecrans after his team had lost seven of its past eight games, dropping to fourth place in the NL Central...

Jason Marquis, Strikeout Artist

Guessing the starting pitcher with most strikeouts per nine innings early on in the season should not be too difficult. Clayton Kershaw has struck out more than a batter per inning in his career, and in the early part of this season has shown more of the same, striking out 35 batters in just over […]

Joey Votto is Healthy and off to a Blazing Start

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto struggled with injuries in a 2014 campaign that lasted just 62 games. After playing in all 162 games in 2013 and slugging 24 home runs with a .435 on-base percentage, Votto hit just six longballs with a batting line of .255/.390/.409 before injuries ended his season.

Raisel Iglesias Impresses, but Questions Remain

When the Reds signed Aroldis Chapman out of Cuba, a brief attempt was made to make him a starter in the minors, but in the majors, he has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen. Raisel Iglesias, a fellow Cuban import who has been ticketed by some for the bullpen, has already made one more start […]

Billy Hamilton’s Reverse Lineup Protection

You’d think that here in 2015, alongside our flying hoverboards and pill-based meals, we’d have finally eradicated the myth of “lineup protection.” The idea that having a dangerous hitter on deck would give the pitcher incentive to challenge the current batter with hittable pitches lest he walk him and put a man on for the better […]

State of the Reds’ Intriguing Rotation

Last week, I previewed the Reds lineup and what you might be able to expect, from them this season. Even more difficult to project, however, is their rotation. With the news that Raisel Iglesias will be the fifth starter for the Reds and that Michael Lorenzen was sent down to the minors, the picture has become less blurry but is still far from clear. Safely in the Rotation Johnny...
