Hey, don’t do that!
Homer Bailey made his first major-league start of the year last week. He lasted less than two innings and allowed eight runs. He made his second major-league start of the year tonight, and it was... better! Definitely better. It sucked, but it was better. (Bailey, as a reminder, is making $19 million this year. He’s…
Stephen Vogt has found a new home in Milwaukee since Oakland let him go, and he would have had a fantastic first start as a Brewer if it weren’t for a Spider-Man impression by Reds right fielder Scott Schebler, who climbed the fence to make a catch so unlikely it even psyched out the announcer:
Come now, and behold the most majestic moment of this afternoon’s Reds-Padres game. Regard this fan. See how he has flung himself into motion, offered his body up for sacrifice; see the raw emotion on his face. What can Cincinnati catcher Tucker Barnhart do to catch this foul ball? Tucker Barnhart can do nothing! This…
You’re here for the taters, right? Here are the taters, four of them on consecutive at-bats for Scooter Gennett in Cincinnati’s 13-1 win over St. Louis..
The Cincinnati Reds’ Scooter Gennett had himself a night.
Brandon Phillips spent a decade wearing No. 4 for the Reds before the team dealt him away this winter in a transaction that was years in the making. While Cincinnati had been trying to move Phillips since 2013—very logically, as they have no shortage of middle infield prospects and he’s in his mid-thirties—he’d been…
On consecutive basepath sprints, Billy Hamilton kept the Reds alive and then scored the winning run in a Reds 4-3 victory over Cleveland, and they were both dashes that no other major leaguer besides Hamilton could’ve accomplished. Speed is indeed a weapon, and it’s pretty fun to watch.
Cincinnati Reds pitching prospect Ian Kahaloa was drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 amateur draft, and has been playing rookie ball ever since. He won’t be playing much this year, though, as he’s currently serving a 50-game drug suspension that was handed down on Tuesday. Last month, a Twitter user posted a video…
There’s a decent chance the NL Wild Card ultimately comes down to this:
The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds tonight, as Yadier Molina doubled in Matt Carpenter to give the team a critical 4-3 win, keeping them right in the thick of the N.L. Wild Card race. Thing is, Molina’s walk-off hit might have been a ground rule double, which would have left the game tied at 3 with…
Billy Hamilton is one of the very best defensive center fielders in baseball, and tonight he went all out to make one of his best catches of the season. He’s really fast, man. Fast enough to get asked jokingly about racing Usain Bolt, and fast enough to chase this Carlos Beltran hit down.
Last night, the Cincinnati Reds had a 4-0 lead against the St. Louis Cardinals with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. They lost on a walk-off hit-by-pitch.
On June 1, Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto had a triple slash of .213/.330/.404. I wrote an article expressing the opinion that, at the time, he was bad. A lot has changed since then. Joey Votto, like he did to the buffoon in the Reds shirt at last night’s game, has owned me.
Don’t try to pull any shit on Joey Votto. Asking for some charity while sitting in some expensive seats? That’ll get you a taste of Joey Votto’s praxis. Trying to catch a foul ball and getting in Votto’s way? He’ll pull your card.
Billy Hamilton: still an absolute terror on the basepaths. He scored the first run of today’s game against the Cubs by walking, stealing second, and then making it all the way home on a passed ball. John Lackey and David Ross really needed to be paying more attention to him!
The Cincinnati Reds have been complete dogshit this season, but the most concerning decline has been their first baseman. Joey Votto’s power is missing in 2016. His hitting is, too.
Some rapscallion at last night’s Dodgers game threw a paper airplane onto the field. Reds first baseman Joey Votto was not amused by this tomfoolery:
