Cincinnati Reds down Milwaukee Brewers in homer-happy 8-6 series opener

The balls, they were a-flyin’. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game I mentioned yesterday that Eugenio Suarez had stumbled over his last month plus, merely hitting at a pedestrian rate after a rock-solid start to the 2017 season. After his season OPS peaked at an absurd 1.200 on April 23rd, he entered play on Tuesday having hit just .228/.329/.368 in the previous...

On Bronson Arroyo, who has probably thrown his final pitch

The Cincinnati hurler’s pitching days are likely over. I’ve watched baseball through most all of my life. I was just wide-eyed enough in 1990 to dance around the living room like an idiot when Carney Lansford popped out to Todd Benzinger, a storm of a celebration that abated instantly the horror I’d felt earlier that day when Eric Davis lacerated his kidney. If ever there...

Cincinnati Reds: improving the way they lose

It may seem odd to say this considering the Cincinnati Reds have lost the last 11 of 12 games. Yet these Reds don’t seem totally out of as many games as they were last year. Last year the Reds found ways to squander many save opportunities. Sometimes they didn’t have a prayer in games that were often blowouts. That or they were competitive in the game until one bad inning...

How Good is Zack Cozart?

As usual, Mike Trout is at the top of our WAR leaderboard. That will only be true for a little while longer, however, as Trout’s lead is down to just one tenth of one win, and he’s unfortunately on the shelf for the next couple of months. Based on the current trajectory, at some point in the next week or so, Zack Cozart will usurp Trout at the top of that list. For all the great...
