Rare lineup something Reds haven't done in 13 years

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Ideally the Cincinnati Reds would have a fully-healthy and offensively-potent lineup on the field for a late season push to the playoffs. But that was not the case for Saturday's game against the Washington Nationals. When Joey Votto was a late scratch with left knee soreness, manager...

When the Cincinnati Reds played the San Diego Padres in the middle of June, Reds manager David Bell had a full bench in the top of the ninth inning. In that game, he could have picked any pinch-hitter, and he called on rookie catcher Tyler Stephenson.

Chicago Cubs History: Longtime Cubs who turned into Cardinals

Ask a Chicago Cubs fan in 2016 how they would feel if they saw World Series hero Jon Lester pitching in a Cardinals uniform one day. The reaction would probably include cringing and denial of such a thing. Fast forward to 2021 and Lester indeed became a member of the Cardinals via trade from the Washington Nationals and pitched against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Saturday.

OTD 2015: Mets Clinch NL East in Cincinnati

It’s hard to believe this was six years ago. In a way, it feels like sixty. Yes, there was a time when the Mets averaged 5.4 runs over the final two months of the season, winning 36 of 53 and solidifying themselves a team no one else wanted to face. There was a time when a trade deadline acquisition not only made an impact on the offense but was the central part of a team-wide resurgence.

KSReds: Cincinnati Reds Take Three of Four From Nationals

The Cincinnati Reds, after a month of losing and frustration, are showing a little fight once again. It is almost assuredly going to be too little too late. However, the Reds will enter the final week of the season still mathematically in the playoff race.

Scuffling Rockies look to finish home slate strong against Nationals

The Colorado Rockies were lights out at home for most of the season, but then came September when tough games against playoff teams slowed down their momentum. Colorado has gone 3-10 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and Atlanta Braves at Coors Field in the month, which included the Giants sweeping a pair of three-game series against them to bolster their drive to the NL West title.

Jon Lester's Hall of Fame case is more interesting than you'd think

Don’t look now, but Jon Lester is in the thick of another team’s magical run. Since being traded by the Washington Nationals to the St. Louis Cardinals at the trade deadline, the longtime Red Sox and Cubs ace and three-time World Series champion has played a key role in the team’s late-season surge. The 37-year-old has turned back the clock to post a 4-1 record and a 4.13 ERA with St. Louis, and over the past few weeks the club has run off an epic win streak. Once barely a .500 team, the Cardinals are now the clear frontrunner to claim the second NL Wild Card spot and could conceivably play spoiler in the one-game elimination round.
