The Reds’ Pursuit of Historical Ignominy

Last night, Kris Bryant became the first player in Major League history to hit three home runs and two doubles in the same game.

Cincinnati Reds: Examining Adam Duvall’s breakout season

Going into the 2016 season, Adam Duvall of the Cincinnati Reds was viewed as nothing more than a platoon player who would share the left field duties with Scott Schebler. Duvall quickly changed that perception of himself, as he wound up winning the job outright by late April, proving he could hit both lefties and righties with equal effectiveness. Now that he’s been given the opportunity...

Scouting the Reds’ Cody Reed Before His Debut

When Cody Reed takes the mound on Saturday he’ll likely be wearing the same pair of rec specs he’s worn since his sophomore year of high school. Reed donned the glasses after he had a hard time picking up signs from his catcher — especially during night games — as a freshman and has continued to wear them as a pro. Though, when Reed is pitching well, it’s opposing hitters...

It’s about to get better, though, as top prospect Cody Reed is set to make his big-league debut tomorrow. Since we’ve likely...
