Jay Bruce Makes My Bowels Loose

I thought Jay Bruce was a lock for 30/100 not dirty undies. Thirty-hundo not dirty-undies! All year Bruce Stinksteen has been behind "Born to Run" Billy Hamilton, Todd Frazier, who's classically rocking out and Learning to Fly, and Devin "Is That Your Face Or Are You Wearing Wax Lips?" Mesoraco, who had a breakout season. And, here, Jay Bruce is less appetizing...

Let’s Watch Aroldis Chapman and Javier Baez

Prospects are babies. They’re eagerly anticipated, they’re evaluated by their ceilings, their arrivals are memorable and frequently painful, and these days they’re traded for goods less than ever.

Prospect Watch: Nick Howard sets a career high in strikeouts

Tucker Barnhart continued his stretch of good hitting in a Louisville win last night as he went 2-4 with an RBI and a run scored. The catcher is now hitting .347 in the month of August and .314 going back to July 1st. The strong second half is a good turn around for Barnhart, who struggled in the first three months of the season, hitting .211 through June in Triple-A. Infielder Rey...

Negron's little hustle is big difference in Reds' win

CINCINNATI -- A little hustle will do you well. It did the Reds well Wednesday night. A little hustle was a big difference in a 7-5 victory against the Chicago Cubs. A little hustle by Kristopher Negron set the stage for a four-run fourth inning for the Reds. Too much self-admiration by Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro denied his team a chance at tying the game up in the eighth inning...

Who will the Cincinnati Reds call up in September?

September is approaching and one of the strange things about baseball is that when it rolls around the rosters expand. No other sport operates like that and it’s a rather confusing rule. The fun part for people like you and I who follow the minor leagues so much is that we get to see new faces come up and maybe even get some playing time after the minor league season is over. Today...
