Cueto feeling good


News of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto is spreading all over twitter right now that he is feeling better and ready to come back. I wanted to post these tweets on here so everyone can take a look for themselves. Getting Johnny Cueto back in the rotation healthy will really help this ball club out. Tony Cingrani has been pitching great in Cueto’s spot but having the Reds number one starter back will really boost this team.

Reds add more depth with signing Willie Harris


Cincinnati Reds signed Willie Harris to a minor league deal today and although many might not think much about this deal, I think it is another great job by Walt Jocketty. It is “No” risk, high rewards for the team. Harris can play all three outfield spots along with 2B and 3B. He also has played a few games at SS. [Source - Mark Sheldon] and [Source - John Fay]

A great way to start off the day


Cincinnati Reds Assistant Director of Media Relations Jamie Ramsey from Better Off Red writes a special guest post for The Morning Line, 1/13 (Better Off Red edition).

If you have not had a chance to read it yet, I seriously recommend it. Jamie Ramsey of course is the inside man for all Reds fans to follow along with such greats like John Fay and Mark Sheldon. No real Reds fan can go on cheering without following these guys for the inside scoop on the team. @Jamieblog, @johnfayman and @m_sheldon.

Better Off Red made my day!


I got my Better Off Red t-shirt today and I just have to show it off. As a Reds fan I have found Jamie Ramsey to be the man to follow when I want to know what is happening with the team and staff. Mark Sheldon and John Fay are two others I follow and I respect them just as much as I do Jamie Ramsey when it comes to the Reds. So when Jamie Ramsey sent me an email asking for my address so he could send me a shirt I was blown away. I am still shocked to tell you the truth. It is a huge honor to have this and the best part of all is that he signed it for me! Now, before any rumors start, NO! this shirt and autograph are not for sale, nor will they ever be. :)

Thank you Jamie Ramsey. — Keep up the great work that you do.

Options at LF all depend on Cordero signing


John Fay reports that Cody Ross, Rick Ankiel, Ryan Ludwick and Kosuke Fukudome are some of the guys being looked at by Cincinnati Reds to help play LF in 2012. Of course this all depends with what happens with free agent closer Francisco Cordero. If he re-signs with the Reds they will have less money to go after position players and if he does not re-sign they will have more money to play with in order to get the players they need. A lot of fans are hoping it is Cody Ross. I for one would rather have one of the other three players due to the fact that they have played more in the National League Central Division. [Source]

I wanted to take a look and see how well these guys have done in Great American Ball Park before giving a guess at which one Walt Jocketty and the Reds front office will go for. Of course, money is always an issue when it comes to who they will get but I am not going to look to far into that right now and give each player a chance. I also wanted to see how well each player has done in other National League Central Division ball parks.


Cody Ross – At Great American Ball Park Ross has played 16 games, going 6 for 41 (.146 BA) with 2 home runs.
