Padres at Reds, Game 1 - Preview and Lineups

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Go Reds.

The outlook for the rest of this Cincinnati Reds season has turned rather dour.

The failure to capitalize on an August schedule with ample opportunity has left a taste in our collective mouths that’s quite sour.

In fact, it’s hard to imagine the nearly non-existent playoff hopes rising again, even if you add flour.

Tonight, the Reds welcome the San Diego Padres to town, and in order to maybe, maybe begin to begin to rip off an incredible run of...

What exactly are we looking for in the rest of this Cincinnati Reds season?

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Winning? Is it still ‘winning?’

The Cincinnati Reds just had a big 4-game weekend series at home against the rival St. Louis Cardinals, a prime chance to do some standings-climbing in front of their home fans.

They didn’t.

That, of course, came exactly a week after the Reds had a big 4-game weekend series at home against the rival Chicago Cubs, a separate prime chance to do some standings-climbing in front of their home fans.

They didn’t then,...

Comparing the powerful MLB debuts of Aristides Aquino and Yordan Alvarez

Major League Baseball has been blessed with plenty of exciting rookie players in 2019. Guys like Fernando Tatis Jr., Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, Pete Alonso, Chris Paddack, and Mike Soroka are just a very small handful of what feels like a countless number of first-year players making an impact. A couple hitters that have made waves throughout baseball despite not starting this season in the big leagues, though, are Aristides Aquino of the Cincinnati Reds and Yordan Alvarez of...

Homers, defense doom Cincinnati Reds in 5-4 loss to St. Louis Cardinals

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

At least the jerseys were cool.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

On a day when the Cincinnati Reds offense largely fell flat and their starting pitcher didn’t exactly have his best outing, that leaves the bullpen as the most likely focus of this here section. Sure enough, the Reds got a very solid outing from rookie Joel Kuhnel, who was making just his second career big league appearance.

It was a good one. A pair of scoreless innings, in...

Reds place struggling slugger Joey Votto on 10-day IL with back strain

The Reds announced Sunday they have placed first baseman Joey Votto on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain. First baseman Brian O’Grady has been recalled to replace Votto on the 25-man roster. So continues a difficult season for the former NL MVP. Votto’s .262/.352/.410 line is the first below-average offensive performance of his career. In an era where seemingly every hitter is a threat to launch 20 home runs, Votto’s power has taken a massive dip over the past two...

Aristides Aquino homers again as Reds pound Cardinals 6-1

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

His miracle run continues!

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

It’s virtually impossible to talk about all the ways I’ve mentioned that it’s virtually impossible to quantify what Aristides Aquino has been doing to baseballs of late.

Yet here we are, and there he is, still destroying baseballs at a rate we have never once seen before in Major League Baseball history.

Aquino went deep yet again on Saturday, crushing a 3-run blast against the...

Reds vs Cardinals Game 3: Preview and Lineups

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Disco tries to turn the beat around.

Another chance for the Reds to stop the bleeding tonight. Anthony DeSclafani takes the hill for the good guys, desperate for a good start. He is, of course, coming off of a not-so-good start against the Nationals, and it’s wishful thinking to think that he can do what Luis Castillo wasn’t able to last night. Fingers crossed that he can give the Reds a good start.

He’ll face Miles Mikolas for St. Louis. Mikolas has...

Aristides Aquino homered again, Luis Castillo pounded as Reds lose to Cardinals 13-4

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The sky, it has fallen.

CINCINNATI - Perhaps it was the baseball gods’ attempt at rectifying a scenario we’ve seen play out time and time again in 2019 - the Cincinnati Reds outscoring their opponents over the course of a series only to lose more games in it than they win. If Pythagoras is letting things normalize, perhaps there’s a good chance these Reds might actually find a way to flip that script against these St. Louis Cardinals in this 4-game...

Will Alex Wood be the next Cincinnati Red to get claimed on waivers?

The lefty is a free agent pitcher to-be with immense talent, after all.

Earlier this week, Homer Bailey fired 7 innings of scoreless, 2 hit baseball for the Oakland Athletics, a club that’s 17 games over .500 and firmly in the mix for a playoff run in the American League. That same Oakland club just signed Matt Harvey, too, as - spoiler alert - finding decent starting pitching across the baseball landscape is still an incredibly hard thing to...

Castillo vs. Wainwright

The Reds finally pulled up out of a neck-snapping nosedive last night, thanks in no small part to the sublime Sonny Gray. Tonight they will be relying on staff ace Luis Castillo and his red right hand.

His last time on the bump he threw 6 2/3 perfectly decent innings against the Nationals, only to watch the bullpen lose the lunch. There was a time right around the All-Star break when Castillo was leading the entire world in walks...
