Does anyone actually enjoy sports anymore? With Twitter, Facebook and message boards, it seems we have more outlets than ever to discuss and learn about sports.

From a fan’s standpoint, what Aroldis Chapman is doing seems amazing. Through May 27, Chapman hadn’t allowed an earned run in 21 appearances and 26 innings. He’d only allowed seven hits, walked eight and struck out 44. But it’s not just those in the stands that are impressed — so are his teammates.

Andy Dalton jokes that he can now hold his head up and boss around the mere rookies that invaded the Bengals’ locker room this past week for a rookie minicamp. He, of course, is joking. It’s not his style to boss anyone around — more likely he’s showing his new teammates the ropes.

The Bengals did exactly what they were expected to do in the first round of the NFL draft on April 26 — take a cornerback and an offensive guard, even if the names were different than expected. Last Thursday, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick of Alabama and Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler became the newest Bengals.  

Reds’ Slow Start No Reason for Panic

One of the great beauties of baseball is that one pitch can mean everything and one game can mean nothing. The Reds are off to a slow start, winning seven of their first 16 games. It’s not ideal and wins in April count as much as wins in September, but it’s baseball — every team loses roughly one-third of its games.

It seems every mock draft out there — and there are a ton — knows exactly what the Bengals will do with their two first-round picks on April 26: The team will take a guard and a cornerback. They seem to be the two glaring needs, even though the team addressed their depth at the positions in free agency.

Nielsen says we’re the smallest market in Major League Baseball, but last week Bob Castellini sent the message that the Cincinnati Reds are no longer a small-market team, signing Joey Votto to a 10-year, $225 million extension that brings his contract to more than $250 million over the next 12 seasons.
