Reds add Austin Wynns to roster, will once again carry a trio of catchers

Hmm...

Back before the 2024 Major League Baseball season began, the Cincinnati Reds signed veteran catcher Austin Wynns to a split contract, one that would pay him $950K for time in the big leagues and some $300K for his time with their minor league affiliates.

That took up a 40-man roster spot, however, and before that contract ever got a chance to truly play out, the team designated him for assignment as part of a series of other...

Some news and links and such about the Reds

Losing two of three to the Pirates is kinda like losing your fingernails. It’s never a good sign. But while dropping a series to them has been an undeniable mark of an ailing ballclub for a good while now, I’m not so irritated by it as I usually am. There’s some bits in there to feel okay about. Namely, the pitching.

Nicky LoDown and Red Greene were both down with the sickness, throwing 131?3...

Jeimer Candelario Is Providing the Stability the Reds Need

Heading into the offseason, the Cincinnati Reds were in a position to add a veteran bat to help round out a lineup full of young, budding talent. They needed someone with a high floor and a track record of success.

Go Reds!

Nick Lodolo will try to lead the Cincinnati Reds to the un-possible this evening: namely, a victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the city of Pittsburgh.

Think I’m exaggerating? They haven’t won a game there all year!

Stupid hyperbole aside, it sure would be nice to see the Reds not head into the home of a division rival who’s also been fumbling the bag for the last two decades and immediately lose the series before the final game of it...

Tuesday links!

It’s not too outlandish to suggest that the 2024 Cincinnati Reds are a much, much better baseball team when they have their team leader from 2023 in both fWAR and bWAR in the lineup. He’s their everyday leadoff guy against both LHP and RHP and their CF, after all, a vital two-way player who also demands respect on the bases.

TJ Friedl’s absence hasn’t been the only reason why the 2024 edition of the Reds are spiraling towards...

Reds Select Brooks Kriske

The Reds announced that they have selected the contract of righty reliever Brooks Kriske and optioned him to Triple-A Louisville. Since he is being added to the roster but kept in the minors, he likely had an opt-out of some kind in his contract that the Reds didn’t want him to trigger.

The Reds could be a playoff team or in last place by day’s end. That’s a problem.

The expanded baseball playoffs are a joke, even if it means I could actually watch the Reds play in them for once.

Two things are decidedly true on this, the morning of June 16th, 2004.

The Cincinnati Reds, mediocre as they’ve been this year, sit just 0.5 games out of a Wild Card spot in the National League standings right now.
