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…
The Royals have the second-best record in baseball, the fourth-best run differential, and lead their division by six-and-a-half games. Barring an incredible disaster, they’re going to the playoffs. But they still didn’t feel like the team was well-positioned, and on Sunday traded Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb, and Cody…
It could have been the perfect crime. Justin Buchanan, 19, dashed onto the field at last night’s Cubs-Reds game (while filming himself the entire way), tried to say hi to Billy Hamilton, tossed his phone onto the grass over the centerfield wall, hopped the fence, clambered up into the seats, and disappeared into the…
Severe weather is expected in much of the Midwest tonight, and that includes Cincinnati, home of the All-Star Game and tonight’s Home Run Derby. There’s the possibility of lightning, damaging winds, and downpours like the ones that rolled through this afternoon:
I’m not sure what compelled Billy Hamilton to make this ballsy play during Saturday’s game against the Marlins—maybe when you steal as many bases as he does, you get bored and and have to find new ways to challenge yourself—but I sure am glad that he went for it:
The Mets’ Steven Matz played in his first MLB game Sunday against the Reds, and went 3 for 3 at the plate with four RBI. Steven Matz is a pitcher.
ESPN’s Outside the Lines has gotten its hands on definitive proof that Pete Rose bet on baseball games while he played for the Cincinnati Reds. Rose had previously admitted that he bet on baseball while managing the Reds, but vehemently denied that he ever did so as a player.
Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton still can’t really hit, but it’s moments like this one from yesterday’s game against the Phillies that make keeping him in the lineup worth it.
Joey Votto only needed three balls to get on base in Sunday’s game, because no one caught the mistake. Sunday baseball’s full of rogues who don’t even respect pitch counts. Everyone’s too laid-back.
The Reds held their Bark at the Park event for Tuesday’s game. A bunch of dogs showed up. Let’s highlight three good dogs.
Reds manager Bryan “Stick It Right Up My Ass” Price got himself ejected from today’s game against the Indians before it even started by picking an argument with the umpiring staff.
The Tall Stacks fireworks feature at Great American Ball Park has led to a portion of the stadium being evacuated after a malfunction caused an actual fire to break out.
Something about the pitcher’s mound in Cincinnati tonight has Giants hurler Tim Lincecum falling all over the place, in multiple innings:
Reds manager Bryan Price has apologized for unleashing a profane rant—one that contained 77 “fucks” packed into six minutes of yelling—on Cincinnati Enquirer beat reporter C. Trent Rosecrans, but Price is sorry for the wrong reasons.
