Reds Robert Stephenson improving his change up

While watching a start earlier this season on, I had noticed that Robert Stephenson was throwing his change up a little more often than he had thrown last year. He seemed to have more confident in the pitch, throwing it in several different counts throughout the game. Kourage Kundahl spoke with the right hander a few days ago, looking to get some more information on the...

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, former manager Dusty Baker is looking to return to the Majors in that capacity.

In all three cases...

While the move isn’t official just yet, he’s heading to the disabled list and outfielder Jonathan Reynoso will be joining the...

WATCH: Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton Back to His Base-Stealing Ways Against Cubbies

Thursday night the Milwaukee Brewers pulled off something that no one had done this season to date--they threw out Cincinnati Reds speedster Billy Hamilton when he tried to steal. So it should come as no suprise that the next time he plays he comes back with a vengeance. Against Jon Lester and the Cubbies he got certainly got some. Through five innings he already has three stolen...

It’s been an eventful week in Cincinnati, which nearly reached Peak Reds before being eclipsed by whatever **** the Royals have been doing.

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton Caught Stealing for First Time This Season

When the Reds called Billy Hamilton up from the minors they knew they were getting a guy that just needed to get on base to become  scoring threat.

Redmond, Price among MLB managers feeling early pressure

Three weeks into the 2015 MLB season, a handful of managers may already be feeling the pressure of making sure their teams fulfill expectations. Is it a coincidence that Reds skipper Bryan Price vomited a bucketful of F-bombs at Cincinnati Enquirer beat reporter C. Trent Rosecrans after his team had lost seven of its past eight games, dropping to fourth place in the NL Central...

Jason Marquis, Strikeout Artist

Guessing the starting pitcher with most strikeouts per nine innings early on in the season should not be too difficult. Clayton Kershaw has struck out more than a batter per inning in his career, and in the early part of this season has shown more of the same, striking out 35 batters in just over […]

Billy Hamilton’s Reverse Lineup Protection

You’d think that here in 2015, alongside our flying hoverboards and pill-based meals, we’d have finally eradicated the myth of “lineup protection.” The idea that having a dangerous hitter on deck would give the pitcher incentive to challenge the current batter with hittable pitches lest he walk him and put a man on for the better […]
