Wise man once told me, “Adversity causes some to break, and others to breaks records.” Starts today baby #legggo

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier posted a tweet today and I thought I would share it, hoping it does come true and he really does break records. If anyone can become a record breaker it would be this great hitter. Sometimes his swings look uncanny but he gets the bat on the ball and that is what counts. Keep swinging Mr. Frazier, keep swinging!
Is Tony Cingrani ready? After watching this kid pitch I would say he is very ready. He is exactly what the Reds need at the bottom of their rotation right now. A left handed strike thrower who is not afraid to hit the strike zone. Of course teams will adjust once they get to see him more but hopefully he can fool them for a few more starts and keep winning ball games.

With snow still on the ground here I am a little late with posts and with cleaning. I have finally come around to cleaning up the blog and will continue to clean it up as the days go on. Cincinnati Reds have a great team this season and I am really loving Choo at the top of the order. Votto and Choo fighting for the best OBP is a lot of fun to watch everyday. And I now say without a lie that I really enjoy watching Homer Bailey pitch now. He has really matured and become the top of the rotation kind of pitcher many Reds said he would. Go #Reds

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips posted a tweet today that I thought I would share. The man is very right, Reds need to end this month on a positive note. Lots of injuries have hurt the team early this season, hopefully the worst is behind them and the team can win some ball games.
I’m going to the show!!First German in the league !!!!

Donald Lutz posted on twitter that he is getting sent up. Cincinnati Reds announcers announced the tweet today in the game against Washington Nationals.
The Cincinnati Reds have made three moves so far from what I have found. They have signed free agent 2B Emmanuel Burriss. And they have signed free agent RHP Jeff Stevens and free agent C Nevin Ashley. I thought I would add some links to Stevens and Ashley so everyone can take a look at them. Burriss looks like a good glove to have off the bench so I am happy with that one. I am still looking into the other two players but from what I have found, they both look like good players to have just in case of injuries.
I love the MLB off-season just as much as I do the regular season and post season. And with modern technology, everyone can get in on the fun and see who goes where within minutes of the move. Here are some links that will help you keep up to track on the latest moves. Cincinnati Reds will be looking for a lead-off hitting CF, a Power right handed LF and a closer this off-season. (If they can not re-sign key players like Madson, Broxton and Ludwick.) I am not sure if Walt Jocketty will look to fill these spots through free agency but it is always an option if the price is right.
