Roughly a quarter of the way through the 2015 MLB season, here are a few takeaways for the Cincinnati Reds.
As of now they sit at fourth in the NL Central, eight and a half games back of the St. Louis Cardinals behind the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh. They have not been able to score runs, currently 10th worst in the MLB. Their situational hitting has been even worse, batting only...

Manager Bryan Price might have set a record Saturday for the quickest ejection of all time. The Cincinnati Reds manager was tossed from his team’s game against the Indians before it even began.

Hey, how many innings did Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price manage today? Try zero – he got ejected before the first pitch after getting into a heated argument with the umpiring crew while bringing out the Reds’ lineup card.
Price apparently had an issue with the strike zone called in Cleveland on Friday night by Manny Gonzalez. Here are the zones called by Gonzalez against...
Before the game on Friday against the Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price was asked about Jason Marquis starting on Monday and he had something rather interesting to say:
“I’d probably hold off on answering that question,” Price said. “We have to look at a lot of different things when making a decision. We’re dealing with a veteran player.

It probably doesn’t shock you to learn that the three best hitting Reds so far this year all play the infield. Based on what you know about the Reds, it’s only slightly shocking to learn that Jay Bruce isn’t in the team’s top three in wRC+, but Todd Frazier and Joey Votto are obviously right […]

Johnny Cueto had a wild side, too, when he was Yordano Ventura's age, earning a seven-game suspension for his role in a benches-clearing brawl nearly five years ago.
Since then, Cueto has become one of the game's top pitchers and the anchor of the Cincinnati Reds' staff who will command top dollar when he reaches free agency after the season.
Ventura, who turns 24 on June 3 and has...

Aroldis Chapman was a major-league rookie in 2010, but it took no time at all for him to make a name for himself. Joel Zumaya had re-introduced the population to consistent triple digits, but Chapman pushed the limits to the extreme. In his 11th-ever outing, Chapman took the mound in San Diego, and the first […]
Manny Parra, on the Disabled List with a strained neck, was eligible to rejoin the Reds bullpen over the weekend, but the left-hander hasn't been activated yet. “He had a little bit of elbow tenderness that has been completely checked out. I don't want to say it's a non-issue … but it's been checked out,” Reds manager Bryan Price told Reds.com. “It's part of the aches and...
The riverboat smokestacks at Great American Ball Park have kept Reds fans entertained since the venue officially opened in 2003. They launch fireworks and flash lights. The smokestacks also shoot fire, which is what happened during Friday night’s game against the Giants.
This time, however, the fire did not go out like it was supposed to.
With the Giants at bat in the top of...

Well, you don’t see *this* every day – during Friday night’s Giants-Reds game, one of the smokestacks that shoots fireworks at Great American Ballpark actually caught on fire in the sixth inning.
Insanity. Complete insanity. Thankfully, Cincinnati’s finest were able to put the fire out and restore some semblance of normalcy to the rest of the night.

Reds starter Johnny Cueto had no chance at fielding this grounder up the middle by Brandon Crawford, so he did what anyone would have – threw his glove at the ball behind the back.
Valiant effort. http://t.co/QauymxciWy pic.twitter.com/rKk00NsRa2

Luckily for Cueto, Zack Cozart was there to field the ball and throw out Crawford. All’s well...
Last afternoon my buddy @fantasybbhero told me to use Raisel Iglesias in DFS (daily fantasy sports) and I honestly overlooked his advice. After watching him pitch against the Braves I now know why he made that recommendation.
Last June the Reds signed the 25-year-old Cuban defector to a seven-year, $27MM contract. Before signing he was used primarily as a three inning reliever, but...
Billy Hamilton is the fastest player in baseball. He’s done some remarkable things on the field with his legs, including scoring on a pop-up that barely left the infield. He currently leads the majors in stolen bases with 17 thefts, and only 12 teams have stolen more bases this year than Hamilton has himself. His […]

Someone forgot to inform Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto that players are subject to ejection should they throw their equipment.
Votto struck out in the third inning of Wednesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates and spiked his helmet in frustration. He was then promptly ejected by home plate umpire Chris Conroy.
Reds manager Bryan Price made his way toward the...
