Who should the Reds keep at the trade deadline?

The Cincinnati Reds have virtually one trade candidate this season. It’s not really a question of whether Jay Bruce gets traded, but when and for what in return. Beyond that, trading Zack Cozart and Brandon Phillips would be ideal, but unlikely. There’s no market for a shortstop and there’s no guarantee Phillips agrees to go even […] The post Who should the Reds keep at...

MLB is tired of managers arguing balls and strikes

Manager tirades at umpires have largely become a thing of the past thanks to instant replay taking away most of controversy in many decisions in baseball… except balls and strikes. Managers can still get their money’s worth arguing balls and strikes with the man behind the plate, though those tirades often end in vain, if not with a little entertainment for the fans watching...

A Very Necessary Zack Cozart Follow-Up

Every year we go through the same routine. A previously unimpressive player has a couple great months and we wonder if we’re observing something new and meaningful or if it’s simply random variation and the regression monster is coming. I haven’t done a thorough analysis, but I’d imagine a larger percentage of articles written on sites like this during the first months contain...

Cincinnati Reds: an All Star Game recap

Another MLB All Star Game is in the record books. For Cincinnati Reds fans, last night’s game was mostly uneventful. However, there was a lot to recap from last night. Both from the Cincinnati Reds angle and overall.

Cincinnati Reds: All Star Game will be boring

Cincinnati Reds fans will likely find the 2016 MLB All Star Game a bit boring. In spite of having two Cincinnati Reds representatives in the game. In spite of one representatives , Adam Duvall being featured in the Home Run Derby.  In spite of this potentially being one of the final times we’ll see Jay Bruce in a Reds uniform. In spite of all of those things, there’s a significant...

The Jay Bruce Defensive Metrics Test

Jay Bruce is going to be traded. That’s a near-certainty. He’s the only player on this year’s market to be (almost) traded not once, but twice by the team for which he still plays. The rumors have been persisting for more than a year now. Bruce is in the last guaranteed year of his contract, the Reds were never in contention, and he’s rebuilt his value with a great first...

Reds' Billy Hamilton scores from second on passed ball thanks to Cubs’ laziness

On Tuesday against the Cubs, catcher David Ross let John Lackey's pitch go between his legs. Ross...
