Reds Rumors: Changes coming to front office

At one point in the 2014 season, the Cincinnati Reds were still in it. Then they weren't and the season was over. The Reds went 76-86, just a year after going 90-72 and making it to the wild card game before losing. They fired manager Dusty Baker and hired Bryan Price. Price's job appears to be safe, as much of the season was marred by injuries, but the Reds are moving...

Cardinals clinch the Central division title thanks to Johnny Cueto

Johnny Cueto is not a swine. He's the type of weasel who will attack a man from behind, kick him in the head with metal-spiked feet, and end his career. No, Cueto is not a swine because he has no spine. He's more akin to some sort of invertebrate, slithering in the gutter, waiting to attack. After what Cueto did to Jason LaRue, it was an uncomfortable practice to shift to...

Reds can't stay with the status quo anymore

CINCINNATI (AP) After their offense went flat in the closing weeks of the 2013 season that ended with a wild card loss in Pittsburgh, the Reds decided they had to change. No, not the players.

Reds can't afford to keep Cueto and Latos

In a season that was more sourness than light, there was everything to be said for a big crowd on the last day to nowhere.
