Mets’ offensive surge ends in loss to Reds

CINCINNATI — Three straight days of crushing the ball might have left the Mets a little spoiled. Maybe it was the fatigue from playing three straight nail-biters or just the fact they ran into a quality left-handed starter Tuesday night, but the Mets were flat and not even this launching pad known as Great American Ball Park could help them.

Mets announcer rips ‘disgusting’ Skyline Chili during game vs Reds

CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The play between the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Mets isn’t the headline coming from Monday’s game. In fact, the comment from SNY play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen on Skyline Chili is the trending topic. Monday’s broadcast on SNY returned to the bottom of the sixth inning...

Mets Smash Seven Homers in Wild 15-11 Win Over Reds

Four hours and 45 minutes after the first pitch, the New York Mets defeated the Cincinnati Reds 15-11 in 11 innings. After Sunday’s debacle with Taijuan Walker throwing just one-third of an inning, the last thing the Mets needed was a slugfest. Instead, the Mets and acting manager Dave Jauss were in for a headache until the final inning.

The purgatory-bound Cincinnati Reds

After a wasted weekend at GABP and a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Cincinnati Reds have backed themselves into the 2021 season’s keep. At 48-45, a trio of games over the .500 mark, it’s easy to look at things through the goggles created by the team’s putrid success rate over the last three decades and consider the current state of affairs a gold mine. I won’t blame you one bit for that, either, especially given the nature of the team’s roster at the moment. Nick Castellanos and his MVP-caliber season make his opt-out at season’s end a likelihood and Joey Votto isn’t getting any younger, after all. If this club could cobble together an above .500 record so far, warts and all, why not root like hell for them to pull off the incredible?

Reds: Starting pitching, not just the bullpen, has Cincinnati slumping

We all know how bad the Cincinnati bullpen has been this season. The Reds’ relief corps ranks just ahead of the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks in ERA (5.37). However, since the All-Star break, the Cincinnati Reds starting staff has allowed 16 earned runs. Last night, Vladimir Gutierrez took to...

Cincinnati Reds call up relievers R.J. Alaniz and Edgar García

The Cincinnati Reds made six different roster moves today. The first one was one that we knew was coming as of last night – the team officially placed Michael Lorenzen on the 10-day injured list with a hamstring strain. David Bell said that this would be happening today during his post-game comments yesterday. But the team also called up pitchers R.J. Alaniz and Edgar García to join the bullpen. And they optioned left-handed pitcher Cionel Pérez back to Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Vladimir Gutierrez: Sent down to minors

The Reds optioned Gutierrez to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. It's unclear whether the righty is being demoted for Monday's poor outing, or if he's just temporarily making way for an extra reliever as the Reds recover from the 11-inning series opener. Gutierrez had recorded quality starts in both of his previous two outings, so he'll almost certainly return to the big-league club at some point this season, if not in a few days to make his next scheduled start. Ashton Goudeau was recalled from Louisville in a corresponding move.

Looking Forward to the Second Half of the Reds Season

As I sat along the third base line of Kauffman Stadium last Tuesday night watching the Reds bullpen implode in the final two innings before ultimately giving up a walk-off single to Salvador Perez, I felt discouraged. The Reds have an offense that can carry them to the playoffs, but a bullpen that can just as easily destroy any chances. Then last weekend in Milwaukee the Reds won three of four games and I, along with the rest of Reds country, started feeling a lot better about this team.

The Braves are under .500 and buying. Your move, Reds.

The final episode of the Bleav in Reds podcast prior to the All Star break started out with a quick discussion of the Chicago Cubs. This week, we did the exact same thing. While the previous episode’s Cubs mention was due to the 12-game losing streak they were riding and the impact on it by the Cincinnati Reds, this time it’s about how they’ve officially become sellers. In a move that’s peripherally pertinent to the Reds interests, last night Chicago shipped Joc Pederson to the Atlanta Braves, a move that bolsters a Braves club that still has sights on winning things in 2021.

Reds should deal Alejo Lopez while his trade-value is high

The Cincinnati Reds optioned infielder Alejo Lopez back to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday. While the rookie has played admirably, mostly as a pinch hitter, since his call-up to the big leagues, perhaps the 25-year-old holds more value as trade chip before the upcoming July 30th deadline. This isn’t meant in...

Reds: Trading with a division rival for this southpaw makes sense

It’s not often that you see division rivals making deals prior to the trade deadline, but this year, it makes sense for the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs to put their differences aside and hammer out a trade. The Reds bullpen is in shambles. After losing Michael Lorenzen last night,...
