Attempt to follow this argument logically.
P: People like new toys.
P: Baseball fans are people.
C: Therefore, baseball fans like new toys.
It’s been a while since I had a class in logic, but I’m certain you would agree that the argument above is a valid argument.
In this instance, consider that “toys”...
The Cincinnati Reds have released left handed reliever Paul Maholm. He had allowed three runs over 12.1 spring innings (2.19 ERA) with just two walks and he had five strikeouts.
The team also sent five others to minor league camp. Right handed pitcher Pedro Villarreal was optioned to Triple-A Louisville. Right handed pitcher Nate Adcock, Ivan De Jesus, Irving Falu and Kyle Skipwroth...
The Cincinnati Reds came into spring training looking to fill out their bench with a few new players. Brennan Boesch would seem to be a lock on one of the spots. With Skip Schumaker, Kristopher Negron and Brayan Pena also seemingly having spots locked up, that would leave one spot up for grabs.
At this point in time it would seem that it’s down to two guys: Chris Dominguez and...

MLB stars Stephen Strasburg, Brandon Phillips and Todd Frazier are just a few of the many baseball players that have sported one of the hottest baseball accessories on the market.

Cincinnati Reds 2015 Preview
Already playing in a very tough NL Central division, the Cincinnati Reds 2014 season was underwhelming largely due to a number of injuries to some of their key players in the batting order. With last season behind them and everyone now healthy, the Reds offense, mixed in with a stud ace and closer anchoring the pitching staff, will look to make some...
So I guess this is why Brandon Phillips doesn’t go by @DatDudeOBP on Twitter.
When asked if he was down with OBP, the Reds second baseman basically said, “No, you know me.” While talking to USA Today‘s Bob Nightengale, Phillips spoke out against the increased emphasis on a player’s on-base percentage among baseball writers and broadcasters. What’s amusing is who he...
Count Brandon Phillips as part of the anti-analytics group of athletes. USA Today’s Bob Nightengale wrote a terrific article juxtaposing Cincinnati Reds teammates Phillips and Joey Votto, both of whom have had a terrific careers despite polar opposite approaches at the plate. Phillips is a swinger who has never walked more than 46 times in...Read More
When I was a young(er) man playing in a competitive fast-pitch softball league some years ago, the team I played for had plenty of individual talent, but we were always prone to a series of mental and physical errors that would open the floodgates for a big inning for the opposition.
Several coaches tried to harness our talent and produce a team whose results matched its potential...
2014 was a year to forget for the Cincinnati Reds. After making the playoffs in 2013 as a wild card team, the Reds regressed significantly last season due to injuries and underperforming players. Coming into 2015, the Reds are looking to get back on track and compete once again in the NL Central.
Although they didn’t compete for a division title a season ago, they still had an...
Tony Cingrani is going to the Reds bullpen, having already been ruled out of the Cincinnati starting competition. If that’s a surprise, it’s only because after they shed Alfredo Simon and Mat Latos over the winter, the team might now actually start the season with one (or both!) of Paul Maholm and Jason Marquis in the […]
Over the winter, the Reds remade their starting rotation, trading away both Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon, getting younger and cheaper players back in return for a pair of arms headed into their walk years. However, they declined to go into a full rebuild, keeping both Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake despite the fact that […]

Dodgers.In the top of the fourth, Waldrop ripped the extra-base hit to right center field and was halfway between second and third when his right shoe went flying off behind him. The second...
Last year, Cincinnati’s two middle of the order bats both had back leg injuries that robbed them of much of their power. Because of the complicated nature of swing mechanics, maybe it’s not surprising that both sluggers were affected differently by left leg injuries. But they did suffer. “I saw a lot of ground balls […]
Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer Tannier Rahier, a second-round pick in the 2012 Draft by Cincinnati, was arrested in Arizona on Saturday morning after allegedly assaulting a woman. He was booked on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault with intent to injury, and has since been released.
The details from the Arizona Republic are disturbing.

The Cincinnati Reds began what could be a long, slow slide to the bottom of the NL Central in 2014, finishing with 76 wins — only three ahead of the Cubs for last place. Injuries killed what promised to be a strong lineup. General manager Walt Jocketty probably should have begun a roster renovation, and did trade Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon for young talent during the offseason...
