DeSclafani still shut down but feels close

There are nagging injuries and then there are strained oblique muscles, which are never welcome and -- like a bad houseguest -- rarely know when it's time to leave. That's what Reds starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani continues to deal with, long after he was expected to be ready to return.

Devin In A Red Mess

Devin Mesoraco was diagnosed with a torn labrum in his shoulder after missing most of last year with a torn labrum in his hip.  My Latin may be off, but I believe tearing two labrums means severe vagina pain.  The last thing he'll want to do is be squatting.  Devin Mesoraco now has more torn labrums than Nadia Comaneci.  This torn labrum finally gives Mesoraco an alibi to his ugly...

Joey Votto: “I’d rather quit and leave all the money on the table than play at a poor level”

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto is off to an awful start to the 2016 season, hitting .230/.330/.310 as of Monday. If those struggles continue, could Votto hang up his cleats? According to Votto himself, it’s a possibility. When talking to Cincinnati Enquirer, the 2010 NL MVP was quite open about his struggles this season. “It’s not something I’m OK with. I’d...

How the Cincinnati Reds look 1 month in

The first month of  the 2016 Cincinnati Reds season is now in the books. To say the Reds were lousy in April would be a rather mild statement. The Reds are to put a spin on Dennis Green’s famous line who people thought they were. At the close of April the Cincinnati Reds held a 9-15 record.  Currently the Reds sit in 4th place in the N.L. Central. After starting the season...

Joey Votto: I'd rather quit baseball than play poorly

Long one of the most consistent hitters in baseball, Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto had a terrible April. He hit just .229 and slugged just .313, tallying only three extra base hits. His famed on-base skills are still there, but Votto has not been getting hits. It turns out that for Votto, April was so bad that he’d rather retire than allow that to become the norm. ...

The Unfathomable Reality of a (Temporarily) Awful Joey Votto

It’s always a little dicey writing negative articles. Pointing out deficiencies simply isn’t as fun as pointing out strengths, and there’s something that just feels, well, a little wrong about basing work on something a player is trying so hard to do well. That doesn’t feel like it pertains to this article about Joey Votto, however, mostly because he’s always been extremely...

Reds had awesome recap of Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter

There wasn’t a whole lot the Cincinnati Reds could say after they were no-hit and blown out by Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs, but the person running the team’s official Twitter account did what he or she could. In addition to being no-hit, the Reds lost 16-0. They did, however, manage to draw four walks and prevent Arrieta from tossing a perfect game. That seems like a good...
