There’s rotisserie - or roto - in which the tallies in various statistics are accumulated over the course of the entire season, with the grand totals (or rates, depending upon the particular stat) of each at the end of the year determining who did best. It’s the...

Sal Romano looking for shot in Cincinnati Reds rotation

Sal Romano is living up to his name so far this spring and adding much needed flavor to a hungry franchise and fan-base (Sal is salt in Spanish). Many Reds fans were quick to criticize the front office for their trade of Dan Straily to the Miami Marlins this off-season, diving a step deeper into the youth movement.

Turns out, Arroyo brought some vintage gear with him as he guns for a gig with the Cincinnati Reds. So, if you’re keeping track at home, Arroyo hit camp with some 1999 Kenny Lofton cleats and the same...

One Cause for Optimism in Cincinnati

The Reds’ pitching staff was absolutely dreadful last year. Their rotation and bullpen were both the worst in baseball. With a ghastly -0.5 WAR, their staff was the worst since the 1800s, which basically means it was the worst of all time. Not much has changed since last year. Here’s the current depth chart for the Cincinnati rotation: Name IP K/9 BB/9 HR/9 BABIP LOB% ERA...

Bryan Price Elaborates on Workloads and Pitcher Injuries

Back in December, Bryan Price opined in these pages that young pitchers should throw more, not less. The Cincinnati Reds manager was referring to the minor leagues — youthful amateurs are a different story — which is essentially finishing school for up-and-coming hurlers.
