Brewers at Dodgers, NLCS Game Three - Open Thread

Yap about the only baseball of the night!

Christian Yelich is playing baseball tonight, and that alone is worth watching. Of course, he’s being joined by his Milwaukee Brewers teammates in the third game of the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, which makes it that much more to look forward to.

Yelich hails from Thousand Oaks, CA, too, meaning he’s a Southern California kid getting to play on the biggest of stages in Dodger Stadium, which I’m pretty...

Arizona Fall League 2018: Whitley, Trammell headline Scottsdale Scorpions roster

The 27th Arizona Fall League season kicked off on Oct. 9, and players are already making waves against the best competition the minor leagues has to offer. For the last quarter century, the Fall League has brought baseball’s future stars together to showcase their skills and serve as the last big stepping stone before the big leagues. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the son of Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero and baseball’s top prospect, will get the most attention, and rightfully so. But the Blue...

What we’re looking for in the next Cincinnati Reds manager

A communicator, an opportunist, and a vehement anti-bunt propagandist, preferably. We all know with 100% certainty the things we do not want to see from the next manager of the Cincinnati Reds. We don’t want to see him play that one guy who goes 0 for 4, intentionally walk the dude before the guy who whomps a dinger, go to the bullpen when the starter should stay in, or pinch-hit with that one batter who strikes out. It’s easy as hell to critique a manager after things happen on his...

Report: Reds looking to hire high-profile manager

The Cincinnati Reds are one of several MLB teams in the market for a new manager, but they have a specific type in mind. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Reds are aiming to hire a high-profile name that can be associated with the franchise and have already interviewed two former World Series winners in Joe Girardi and John Farrell. In other words, the Reds want a big name. They clearly like high-profile players and believe that this is the ticket forward. Of course,...

Red Reposter - Sonny Gray? Zack Greinke? Why not?!

Friday links!

Each and every time a team has their season end, whether it be at the end of 162 games or in the postseason at some level, brand spankin’ new rumors abound. That’s no different this year, of course, and as the MLB playoffs have eliminated all but four teams, the news from the other 26 clubs around the league is picking up.

Take the New York Yankees, for instance. Just a year and a half removed from trading Top 100 overall prospects Dustin Fowler and James Kaprelian to...

There’s no way the Cincinnati Reds trade Scooter Gennett this offseason

Nope. No chance.

There’s no way the Cincinnati Reds trade Scooter Gennett this offseason. Now you’ve read that at least twice.

The idea that the Reds front office would try to cash-in their found money in Gennett via some form of trade is one that has been kicked around for a year and a half now. Claimed off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers just prior to the start of the 2017 season, Scooter punted the back of his baseball card to the curb immediately with Cincinnati, homering in his...

Reds top prospect Nick Senzel will have surgery to remove bone spurs

The system’s top talent is expected to be down 4-6 weeks, missing the Arizona Fall League

Reds top prospect Nick Senzel has spent the last month or so out in Arizona taking part in the Reds instruction league, where he’s been getting some run in the outfield in order to insure peak positional versatility for the Reds in 2019. And the early review have been pretty great, as relayed from The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans:

With #Reds instructs winding down, asked Shawn Pender about Nick...

Reds top prospect Nick Senzel to undergo elbow surgery

Reds top prospect Nick Senzel lost much of the 2018 season due to injury, and it seems another health issue will cost him an opportunity to play in the Arizona Fall League. Senzel tells Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer that he’ll undergo surgery to remove two bone spurs from his left (non-throwing) elbow and be sidelined for up to six weeks as a result. It’s the latest setback for Senzel in a year that has featured all too much unwelcome injury trouble. The former No. 2...

Is the Cincinnati Reds outfield really good enough as is?

We often overlook it, but it’s been awhile since that group was anywhere close to average.

We have long lamented the shape of the Cincinnati Reds pitching staff, particularly their starters, and rightfully so. Anytime you see a unit rank among the bottom five teams in all of Major League Baseball in key metrics, it’s an easy call to suggest that there needs to be improvement. For the starting pitching, that’s certainly the case, as they rank among the league’s worst in ERA, BB/9,...

Just how much money do the Cincinnati Reds have to spend this winter?

A closer, updated look at what’s already on their projected ‘record’ payroll.

Back in the 2015 season, the Cincinnati Reds sported a payroll north of $115 million, the highest mark in team history. Of course, since that time they’ve shed established player after established player as part of their massive rebuild, and in doing so shed the large salaries those players carried with them.

After dipping to a low of some $89 million for the 2016 season, the Reds have gradually added-back...

Veteran starting pitchers the Cincinnati Reds could target in trades

If payroll is indeed going way up, these options could be on the table.

Yesterday we kicked around the idea that the Cincinnati Reds might be able to solve their starting pitching woes not by adding better starting options, but rather by using their ineffective starting options less and less. Of course, it’s just hair-brained enough to ensure that the Reds - rarely a team to try things too far from the central train of thought - would never pursue such an idea, meaning the addition from...

What if the Cincinnati Reds don’t need to add starting pitching?

Pitching, yes. But starting pitching? Maybe not.

There’s no real secret to why the Cincinnati Reds have logged four consecutive seasons in which they have lost at least 94 games. Starting pitching has continued to dog them in their efforts to rebuild, with the majority of the hurlers tasked with replacing the once-in-a-generation rotation that powered the 2012-2013 teams simply unable to get the job done with any sort of consistency.

Since the beginning of the 2015 MLB season, Reds...
