Reds End Decade of Sports Futility in Cincinnati

Losantiville is Loserville no more. With the Reds’ Game 1 victory in the National League Division Series in San Francisco, Cincinnati’s long drought of postseason failure came to an end.   

Dusty Baker Deserves More Credit

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 3, 2012
It’s too bad it took a mini-stroke for Dusty Baker to get a little bit of relief from his critics. Baker will be leading the Reds to their second postseason appearance in the last three years, but he’s far from beloved in town — he’s hardly even respected.  

Reds Set Up for Continued Success

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 26, 2012
After going more than a decade without a proper postseason, the Reds are making October a normal part of the season, last week clinching their second postseason berth in three years. And the way the roster has been built, there should be more to come.

It’s tough enough to make it to the big leagues — but when an MVP blocks your way, the road to the majors is even tougher.   

Life in the Fast Lane

Fast cars, sketchy women, Cuban lawsuits and sleazy agents. What will it take to slow down Aroldis Chapman?

2 Comments · Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Two months into the 2012 baseball season, the Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher was flying high. In the Reds’ front office, though, worries about Chapman persisted. Not about his choice or location of pitches. About other stuff, like his compliance with traffic laws and his choice of companionship. Some insiders fear that the 24-year-old Cuban’s personal life is approaching, well, the velocity of his fastball.

A hundred stolen bases? That’s so 2011. Today, Vince Coleman’s minor-league record of 145 stolen is the goal for Cincinnati minor-leaguer Billy Hamilton.  

La Russa Returns to Role of Villain

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 3, 2012
It took all the way until the first day of July, nearly a week from the All-Star break, to figure out just what was off about this baseball season. We’ve had plenty of exciting games  still there was something missing, and I couldn’t put my finger on it until the National League All-Star rosters were announced. Tony La Russa, we missed you.   

The Class Act of Sean Casey

Quite honestly, a team Hall of Fame never seemed like a big deal to me — a nice honor, sure, but nothing like Cooperstown. It’s something, I always thought, to which those being inducted paid lip service. That was until I threw out the softball icebreaker to Sean Casey on Saturday before his induction into the Reds Hall of Fame.   

Votto's Monster Season Going Under the Radar

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Joey Votto should be the face of baseball right now. He should be the biggest name in the game, there should be cameras following his every move, national TV commercials and the talking heads on TV saying “Votto” so much that you’d think it was a verb.  

Reds' Teammates on Aroldis Chapman's Dominance

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 30, 2012
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.
