Reds vs. Cardinals, Game 3: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals 7:10 PM ET Homer Bailey vs. Carlos Martinez In the midst of the Reds’ “throw rookie pitchers at the wall and see what sticks” streak, they’re putting Homer Bailey out there tonight. He might have as much to prove as anyone in the rotation right now, as he really needs to prove that he’s back healthy and that he can put together some consistent starts going forward if he’s going to be part of this staff next year. He’ll face old friend...

In the midst of the Reds’ “throw rookie pitchers at the wall and see what sticks” streak, they’re putting Homer Bailey out there tonight. He might have as much to prove as anyone in the rotation right now, as he really needs to prove that he’s back healthy and that he can put together some consistent starts going forward if he’s going to be part of this staff next year.

Cardinals score more runs than Reds and therefore win the game, 9-2

Joe Nuxhall Honorary Memorial Star of the Game This was a rough one top to bottom for the Reds, so we might as well give today’s trophy to the only pitcher to appear in this one for Cincinnati and not allow a run. That would be Deck McGuire, who also happens to be the only pitcher on the Reds staff to not allow a run this season. He tossed two innings of shutout baseball with just one baserunner allowed via a hit by pitch. He’s only thrown 4.2 innings over three appearances for...

Bailey looks for better result against Cardinals

Carlos Martinez did not join the Cardinals in Cincinnati until a day after his teammates had arrived to avoid him spreading a touch of the flu. Martinez said he was feeling much better when he arrived Wednesday, and he will now try to help the Cardinals feel better about their postseason prospects. As the Cards go for the sweep at Great American Ball Park on Thursday, Martinez will get the start against the Reds.

Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals 7:10 PM ET Rookie Davis vs. Luke Weaver Man, it sure seems like these Reds/Cards games have featured a lot of rookie pitchers, haven’t they? This time, we have that in more ways than one! Rookie Davis makes his return to the rotation, following Stephens from last night. Davis made one bullpen appearance since rosters expanded, but hasn’t made a big league start since May. Davis had a 4.77 ERA in 11 starts in AAA. Go Reds!

The Cincinnati Reds can end this season on a high note

The Cincinnati Reds have an opportunity on their hands as their season draws near the end. They have a chance to end the season on a few high notes. Sure, things look bleak for the Reds as they hit the season’s homestretch. The Reds still face the possibility of finishing last in the NL Central. They will certainly finish the season with a losing record. Making it four consecutive losing seasons for the Cincinnati Reds. Even if they win the rest of their games, the Reds would finish the...

The Cincinnati Reds and Free Agency - A preview of the 2017-18 offseason

Spoiler: They probably won't do anything. On October 1, the 2017 regular season will end.  A couple days after that, as per the norm, the postseason will commence.  By Halloween (or so) a team not from Cincinnati will be crowned as the new or repeating champions.  And roughly a week or so after that, any player with free agent status will be eligible to be wined, dined, and signed by one of the 30 MLB teams in a frenzy of activity that usually peaks in mid-December. This year, teams will...

Reds fall to Cardinals 8-7 in extra innings

Both Zack Cozart and Scooter Gennett did their homer thing again, though. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Zack Cozart. It should almost always be Zack Cozart. The Cincinnati Reds shortstop blasted his 23rd homer of the season as part of a 2 for 5 night, one that featured a run scored and a pair of ribbies. He has Gold Gloved. He has Em Vee Peed. He, Zack Cozart, is Zack “MVP/GG” Cozart, and he’s played his ass off this entire season, even through pain. Congrats on...
