The Cincinnati Reds had a reliable starter in the rotation much of the year in Tim Adleman, but most people forget that he’s there. When the Cincinnati Reds talk about their rotation pieces for 2017 and beyond, Tim Adleman is noticeably missing. Adleman was fifth on the team in starts in 2016. He got a […] Cincinnati Reds’ forgotten man – starter Tim Adleman - Blog Red...

The Cincinnati Reds have signed the Independent League Player of the Year in New Jersey Jackals’ first baseman Art Charles. The Jackals play in the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball, which in shorthand means that their players are minor leagues who are unaffiliated with major league clubs and are thus eligible to be signed. The 6-6, 220-pound Charles obliterated...

Though rebuilding periods are painful to endure for clubs, they do serve a purpose that can yield a few positives. In this case, Cincinnati let Scott Schebler struggle and work through a slump with regular at-bats. Going into the 2017 season, the right-field spot could be Schebler's.

The Cincinnati Reds have an opportunity to level the MLB playing field by focusing on technology for all. The Cincinnati Reds should steal an idea from the parity riddled NFL and suggest that teams be allowed tablets on the bench full-time. The Reds were part of a pilot program at the end of the 2015 […] Cincinnati Reds should petition MLB to allow more technology in the dugout...

The Cincinnati Reds have an opportunity to change their color to support women across America and become the breast cancer awareness team for MLB. It can be too easy to focus on the front office in fighting of the Cincinnati Reds.

The Cincinnati Reds ended the second-half of the season just one game under .500. Their cumulative record for 2016 is irrelevant due to all the players associated who won’t be a factor in 2017. Therefore, it’s reasonable to expect a similar kind of play. Would a .500 Reds team next year really surprise anyone? It shouldn’t, but it probably will. There’s still work to be...

The 2016 Cincinnati Reds season is now officially over. After a year of sometimes head ache inducing performances. The Cincinnati Reds end 2016 with a 68-94 record, a whopping 12 games under .500. Looking back at 2016, there wasn’t much for Reds fans to smile about. Here’s an overall report card of the 2016 Cincinnati Reds season. Batting: C+ The Reds weren’t a great team at...
Some time ago, in another InstaGraphs post, I mentioned something that could potentially become true about the 2016 Reds. We spend a lot of time writing about things that could potentially become true, and inevitably, a lot of those paces fall off. There are reasons for that, and that would be a subject for another post. But the 2016 numbers are official now, dammit. There’s no...
CINCINNATI (AP) During the fifth inning of the Reds' final game, their new general manager held an impromptu session with reporters at the back of the press box. Dick Williams listed the items on their must-do list. The bullpen was at the top. Reds relievers were historically bad in 2016, the overriding factor in another lost season. As if anyone needed a reminder, the bullpen...

Despite enduring a woeful 2016 campaign that has seen them go 67-92 and counting, the Cincinnati Reds will not be making any major coaching staff changes for next season. The team announced on Friday that Bryan Price will be retained as manager for 2017. His entire staff has been offered contracts to return as well. Bryan Price will return as the Reds' manager in 2017. The entire...
The end of Thursday’s game between the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals exposed a terrible rule in the MLB replay system. The Cardinals won the game on a walk-off double from Yadier Molina that scored Matt Carpenter from first base. It's a walk-off! #STLCards pic.twitter.com/NNUIauOBuB — St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) September 30, 2016 The only problem is that...
The St. Louis Cardinals won their game against the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 on Thursday in controversial fashion that left Cincinnati highly dissatisfied. The game was tied at 3 entering the bottom of the ninth. Yadier Molina was up with Matt Carpenter on first and two outs in the inning. Molina smacked a ball to deep left field that bounced off the second wall at Busch Stadium. In live...
Aledmys Diaz hit his first career grand slam, and the shortstop did it all to honor his late friend, Jose Fernandez. Diaz went deep with a grand slam in the fourth inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday to give his Cardinals a 5-2 lead. Diaz pointed to the sky after the grand slam as a nod to Fernandez. First career grand slam for Aledmys Diaz. #STLCards pic.twitter.com...
A lot of negative press has been thrown in the direction of the Cincinnati Reds pitching staff. But are these opinions too critical? Clearly, the 2016 Reds pitching performances did not provide the club with a winning record, and both the starting rotation and bullpen are equally worthy of criticism. Although several members on the staff are to blame for the club’s disappointing...
Hi! You read FanGraphs, so you probably like Joey Votto. As such, you’re probably aware that, two seasons in a row, now, Votto has gone crazy in the second half. Last year, he boosted his game by increasing his hits, his power, and his walks. He ran a second-half wRC+ in the neighborhood of 200. This year, Votto is again running a second-half wRC+ in the neighborhood of 200. Once...
With preseason expectations to be the worst team in baseball, the Cincinnati Reds have to be at least somewhat happy with at least not being that. Unless, of course, they really wanted that No. 1 draft pick. There isn’t much to get excited about with a 62-84 season (although they’ve already won enough to avoid a 100-loss season, a real possibility at the start of the year)...
