The Cincinnati Reds need Billy Hamilton to figure out ways to get on base more. That issue will undoubtedly be addressed by Reds’ fans during the Reds’ annual winter caravan. Hamilton is the headliner for the south tour of the caravan. He’ll be joined for all four caravan stops by former Reds’ great Jeff Brantley, …

The announced induction of Pete Rose into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame came with more news. A ballpark statue will be produced to commemorate baseball’s all-time hits leader. There can only be one statue that accurately depicts the essence of Pete Rose. It has to be Rose in a headfirst slide. The statue of Rose …

The Miami Marlins recently shopped outfielder Marcell Ozuna for starting pitching. The Cincinnati Reds were a perfect match with the Marlins at the right price. The Marlins filled their biggest need for starting pitching with the recent signing of Wei-yin chen. The Marlins could still gain another rotation-ready starter for Ozuna. The 25-year-old Ozuna is …

Shortstop Zack Cozart and reliever J.J. Hoover can significantly increase their trade value for the Cincinnati Reds this year. Both are salary arbitration eligible. Both are going to see their roles for a hapless Reds team increase. Cozart is entering his second year of salary arbitration. He’ll see the obligatory increase in salary of $2.35M …

Raisel Iglesias signed his first big league contract with some fanfare two years ago. Now the 26-year-old Cuban is the heir apparent to Johnny Cueto as the ace of the Cincinnati Reds. Iglesias registered a 4.00 ERA in 16 starts in 2015. He notched 102 strikeouts in 92.1 innings pitched as a starter and posted …

The expected return of Homer Bailey from Tommy John surgery creates an opportunity for the Cincinnati Reds to use a six-man rotation in 2016. Bailey won’t likely return to the Reds until mid-May. That timetable could extend into June if Bailey’s progress is slow. The Reds will need to monitor Bailey’s workload. The team will …

News that New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman won’t be charged for domestic violence underscores just how badly the Cincinnati Reds timed the Chapman trade. The Reds dumped Chapman too soon. The trade came too soon after the report that their former closer was involved in a domestic incident at his Miami home. The Los …

Pete Rose is finally set to be inducted into the hall of fame — not the National Baseball Hall of Fame but rather the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. The announcement marks an end to the self-imposed ban the Reds placed on Rose for consideration into the team’s HOF. Rose will almost assuredly never be …

Reliever Sam LeCure was an unheralded part of the Cincinnati Reds success during their brief run as contenders from 2010-2014. In fact, LeCure recorded the fourth lowest percentage of inherited runners scored among relievers who threw at least as many innings in relief as LeCure (266.2) from 2010-2015 and were used as relievers at least …

Reports that the Cincinnati Reds are in the process of signing Cuban SS Alfredo Rodriguez would confirm that the Reds are completely lost as an organization. The idea that any positional player who had just three extra base hits in 304 plate appearances at any level is worth a $6M signing bonus is ludicrous. Rodriguez …

The Cincinnati Reds will never find another Aroldis Chapman. But a team likely to push 100 losses in 2016 doesn’t need Chapman or any designated closer for that matter. Chapman was an amazing find for the Reds. His signing in 2010 showed that the Reds could think it terms that other organizations with more financial …
