Bullpen and shortstop. Who knew?

After a slumpy four-game sweep at the hands of the San Diego Padres, the once surging Cincinnati Reds find themselves again back in fourth place in the National League Central, at .500 with an even 35-35 record. It was a weekend filled with many familiar undertones, really, with the Reds losing in a nationally televised contest on Saturday, blowing a lead after an epic comeback, and Joey Votto being tossed for the...

Happy Fathers Day.

Luis Castillo - 6 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K - In a game where it seemed like Castillo was working around a lot of trouble he had a really good start. I’m not sure how many in a row that is, it’s at least two, but he’s starting to string together good starts. It really sucks to watch the Reds get swept in this series. I’ll make a small caveat, the Reds...

Joey Votto needs a minute.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Jonathan India just keeps hitting, adding three more today along with two runs scored. He’s been thriving at the top of the lineup, table setting for all of his bat flippin’ friends. He’s making a legitimate push for some Rookie of the Year love in the National League, and, folks: you love to see it.

Honorable mention to Eugenio Suarez, who had two hits and...

Reds move infielder Mike Moustakas to 60-day IL, select Josh Osich

To their credit, the Reds have still been one of the better-hitting  teams in baseball even without Moustakas available for much of the season.

Reds move Mike Moustakas to 60-day IL, select Josh Osich

The Reds moved infielder Mike Moustakas to the 60-day injured list today, opening up a 40-man roster spot so the team could select the contract of left-hander Josh Osich.

Would be nice to win one of these.

News Tony Santillan only pitched 53 pitches last night, exiting when his spot in the batting order came up in the 4th inning. David Bell made the calculation that it was, at the time, the first best chance for the Reds to score, and felt Shogo Akiyama gave them a better shot at the plate than Santillan. It was probably the right call, but it didn’t work. Charlie at the Enquirer has the story here. Since we took the...

Tough one last night.

News Well, last night was super fun right up until it very much wasn’t anymore. Wick recapped all the pain late last night, and that’s right here if you missed it. It features quite the Fan Graph. But what is really import is that Wick also wrote about pizza earlier today, which is a subject that he’s more of an expert on, really. Here’s some updates on injuries, courtesy of our friend Doug Gray. I teased it yesterday, but Hunter...

A Friday List.

Yesterday saw the Cincinnati Reds ride a roller coaster of emotions. Not just any roller coaster, either - we’re talking vintage 1987 The Beast at Kings Island, with incredible speeds being reached while you wonder just how sturdy the rusty bolts are holding the entire fire hazard together. King Cobra stuff where your neck gets shaken all to hell whilst the adrenaline in your bloodstream makes your eyes bulge.

Louisville Bats 5, Omaha Storm Chasers 6

Good lord, could you imagine having to travel to Omaha by bus to play baseball? I’m assuming AAA doesn’t spring for a plane for that kind of travel. Whatever. The game last night was Hunter “John Deere” Greene’s debut in AAA and it was not what he...

Vic Caratini broke our hearts this time around.

Wade Miley did not throw a no-hitter tonight, but he sure as hell made us kick around the idea of it again. The Cincinnati Reds lefty used his cutter in tremendous fashion for most of the evening, and while he was eventually tagged twice, that does nothing to diminish the fact that he once again gave the Reds a brilliant start, one that’s becoming more the...

Reds' Mike Moustakas has setback in recovery from heel injury

Mike Moustakas Re-Aggravates Heel Injury

Reds infielder Mike Moustakas has been on the injured list since May 19 due to a right heel contusion, and his recovery has now hit a setback.  Manager David Bell told reporters (including The Cincinnati Enquirer’s Bobby Nightengale) that Moustakas re-aggravated his initial injury and is back wearing a walking boot.

News Big series starts tonight and goes through the weekend. The fine folks over at Gaslamp Ball has a preview of their own. The Reds are probably catching this team at the right time. Hopefully they don’t let the Padres get right. Charlie Goldsmith over at the Enquirer has some game notes, including how good Lucas Sims has been lately.
