Reds outslug Giants to win homer-filled game

With its spacious dimensions, AT&T Park will never be mistaken for Cincinnati's cozier and homer-abundant Great American Ball Park. But it certainly felt like its Midwest counterpart Monday as the teams combined for five home runs. It was Jay Bruce's two homers, however, that propelled the Reds to a 7-5 victory over the Giants.

SAGNOF Report: Even Miranda Is Adding Hamilton

Today is the first time that I can look at Billy Hamilton and say, "now is the time if he was available in a league I was in, I would add him."  Chances are some ****** canoe has been sitting on him all year, playing him sporadically and reaping the semi-benefits of him.  Watching him recently and correlating that into his last nine games, he has 9 stolen bases and looks to be...

Much-maligned Reds bullpen much improved in second half

The Cincinnati Reds have won three consecutive series since the All-Star break and the pitching is largely responsible. The schedule’s been favorable and Reds’ pitching has done nothing but take advantage of it. Out of the break, Cincinnati boasts a 3.58 ERA. That’s the 11th-best ERA in baseball post-All-Star Game. Multiple Reds are behind the staff’s […] The post Much...

Joey Votto Is Still Pretty Good at Baseball

Last week, I wrote about the disproportionate impact a disastrous April can have on our perceptions of a player. The example I used then was Ken Giles, who has largely put an awful first month of the season behind him and returned to being a dominant reliever. Now seems like as good a time as any to talk about another player who struggled mightily in April: Joey Votto. As Owen...

Reds feeling comfortable with healthy bullpen

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds figured that when the starting rotation got healthy, the bullpen would stabilize itself. That's been the case of late.The return of Raisel Iglesias and Michael Lorenzen, who were projected starters prior to beginning the season on the disabled list, has given manager Bryan Price a lot more flexibility."We have different pieces now with Iglesias and...

Watch Billy Hamilton use his ridiculous speed to give the Reds a thrilling walk-off win

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton might not be the most feared hitter, but when he does reach base the slender speedster can cause absolute havoc. He gave us another reminder of that Sunday against the Brewers.With two out in the ninth in a scoreless game, Hamilton was on second base, representing the winning run. Hamilton took off for third and stole it without a throw....

Cincinnati Reds: Changing the All Star Game

The Cincinnati Reds are back in action following the All Star break earlier this week. It was another All Star week of camaraderie and tradition. It was also another All Star Game where the ratings were lousy. The All Star Game for most people went by in a quick, unnoticeable and seemingly irrelevant flash. It would be a fair statement to say that the MLB All Star Game has lost it’s...

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. The Reds angle First, it’s fair to think Adam Duvall had a better All Star Game experience than Jay Bruce. Duvall won 3rd place at the Home Run Derby. Plus, while...

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

Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is one of those players that you never want to see on the basepaths. He has the speed to score from first on a single or on a pop-up sacrifice fly when standing on third.He can also turn a routine passed ball into a run ... from second base. On Tuesday against the Cubs, catcher David Ross let John Lackey's pitch go between his legs. Ross...
