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:
Major League Baseball is apparently all about fun and mischief tonight, as another NL second baseman tricked a baserunner with a deke. Daniel Murphy got Yoenis Cespedes with a fake throw earlier tonight, and Brandon Phillips caught Juan Uribe loafing off second base with his empty glove. Poor Uribe had to take a deep…
You ready for some grim baseball, my friends? Then let me tell you about Steve Delabar, the Reds reliever who walked four straight batters with the bases loaded last night.
The Cincinnati Reds held their Bark in the Park event at Tuesday’s game, and all the pups were out to watch some baseball. Like last year, some dogs stood out above the rest. Although every dog is good, these dogs were better.
The Reds lost to the Mets again, despite being comfortably up 3-0 when Billy Hamilton made this spectacular full-stretch diving catch to get Kevin Plawecki out. After the catch, the Mets came back and scored four runs in the seventh to win 4-3. Did Hamilton’s dope catch call malevolent baseball spirits upon them?…
Tonight was not a good night for the Reds. They lost 5-3 to the Mets, and Brandon Phillips was a punching bag for the baseball throughout the course of his fourth-inning at-bat against Noah Syndergaard.
When you run the Cincinnati Reds’ Twitter, and the team loses in a 16-0 no-hitter, it’s tough to find a silver lining. But, you have a job to do. Those sad fans need their recap. Thursday’s final result:
The Cubs might have to break out the pajamas again, because Jake Arrieta has thrown another no-hitter, blanking the Reds in a 16-0 blowout win on only 119 pitches. Incredibly, Arrieta hasn’t lost a start since his no-no back in August, and today was (obviously) his best outing since then. He only struck six dudes out,…
Millennia from now, when humanity is extinct, the winds cease, and the face of the earth is ravaged, what little remains are left of Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati will still carry one eternal sound:
Gerardo Parra’s reputation as a defensive wizard might be a bit out ahead of his actual production since his historic 2013 season, but man, the Rockies outfielder’s still got plenty of highlights in him. Look at this throw, which wasn’t even perfectly on line but still got Bruce out at third fair and square.
Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton is blindingly fast, and seemingly the only way to keep him from using his speed is to keep him off the bases. One way to do that, I guess, is to serve up a home run. But last night not even that could cool down the afterburners.
Baseball players are creatures of routine. During yesterday’s game, Joey Votto unveiled a new one: leaning on his bat between pitches.
Prosecutors have declined to bring charges against now-Yankees pitcher Aroldis Chapman for his actions the night he was accused of choking his girlfriend and firing eight gunshots inside his garage, the Broward State Attorney’s Office announced today. The office also released a closeout memo, written by the assistant…
The New York Yankees have acquired Aroldis Chapman, the hardest-throwing pitcher in baseball, from the Cincinnati Reds for a package of four mostly unheralded minor leaguers.
Reds flamethrowing closer Aroldis Chapman fired eight gunshots inside of his garage and was accused by his girlfriend of choking her during an October 30 party at his Davie, Fla. home, according to a police report obtained by Yahoo.
The Reds may be approximately one million games out of the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean Joey Votto is mailing it in. In the middle of an at-bat during the 8th inning of tonight’s game against the Pirates, Votto was unhappy that home plate ump Bill Welke didn’t grant him time and/or made a bad strike call. After…
Boy, that dog looks like it could use a half-eaten hot dog—or literally any unattended food—right now. Unfortunately for the pup, its owner didn’t relinquish the snack. Sorry, dog. Eat your own chow.
I’ve got nothing but sympathy for Cincinnati outfielder Jason Bourgeois, who killed a potential Reds rally by needlessly breaking for home when he could have stayed safely at third. I know the infield fly rule by heart—and I’d bet Borgeoius does too—but it’s invoked so infrequently, and clashes so strongly with your…
