#Reds trade Jay Bruce to Padres? Bruce career at PetCo Park?


Reds added players to their 40 man roster today and now the trade rumor gates have opened again. And I am loving it! Even if it is off the wall like Jay Bruce to the Padres. At least it is something! I for one do not want to see the Reds selling but if they can bring in players that can help this season and be controlled at a cheaper cost so then the Reds can re-sign someone like Johnny Cueto, I am all for it. Don’t get me wrong, Jay Bruce is a great player but if it was down to Cueto or Bruce I would pick Cueto hands down.

The thing that is odd for me though is that the trade rumor is for the Padres. Why would they want someone like Bruce in PetCo Park? It just sounds strange. Sure Bruce has only played 17 games there so the sample size is bad but its PetCo Park! I can not see Bruce doing to well there or in that division to be honest. But, once again it sure is nice to see the Reds being talked about during the off-season. And when I think about this rumor I seriously can’t see Ken Rosenthal getting the rumor from the Reds front office.

#Reds Cueto vs #Dodgers Ryu 06.11.2014


Johnny Cueto, Hyun-Jin Ryu set to duel in Cincinnati. Hyun-Jin Ryu has been great on the road all season. Johnny Cueto has been great all season. So, if you’re a fan of pitchers’ duels, it’d be a smart decision to turn your attention to Great American Ballpark on Wednesday when the two square off.


Dodgers vs Reds

Johnny Cueto 47 | P
5 – 5 ERA 1.97
1 – 5 ERA 3.19 (Career vs LAD)
Cueto gave up four runs on six hits in five innings, his shortest outing of the season, against the Phillies on Friday. In seven career starts against the Dodgers, he is 1-5 with a 3.19 ERA.


Hyun-Jin Ryu 99 | P
7 – 2 ERA 3.08
2 – 0 ERA 2.51 (Career vs CIN)
The professional in Ryu was on display in his last start, his first ever at Coors Field. That win was his fourth consecutive since coming off the disabled list to freshen his shoulder.

Heisey and Frazier use the force! #Reds win 4-3 over #Brewers in the 10th


Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier hit a 92 MPH fastball from Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg to score RF Chris Heisey to win the game in the 10th inning. This was another great game to watch and it is very nice to see all of the seats full for home games. I would say the Star Wars weekend went very well for the Reds and they should do more theme weekends if it helps the club win ball games.

C Brayan Pena hit another home run tonight and it was a bomb! He now has 3 home runs for the Reds this season and will soon break his season high of 6 which he hit in 2009 for the Kansas City Royals. Pena only has about 20 home runs in his whole career. Playing in Great American Ball Park will really help him this season with the long ball. Hopefully that does not take anything away from his swing and he still hits a .290+ BA. Another plus to him getting playing time is, RHP Johnny Cueto really seems to like him as a catcher and has thrown the ball very well.

#Reds Johnny Cueto does it again

Another great game for Cincinnati Reds and RHP Johnny Cueto. 8 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, 2 HR were his numbers this time around and twitter has gone crazy since the win with some crazy facts I thought I would share at the bottom of the post. Phillips went 3 for 4 with 2 runs while Frazier and Ludwick both went 2 for 3. Pena went 2 for 4. Heisey and Cozart both went 0 for 4 and Votto went 0 for 5 with a strike out.

My #reds Check List


I have seen a few blogs already start an off-season check list for the Cincinnati Reds so I thought I would join the fun and list what I think the Reds should do this off-season.

1. Sign a rough and tough manager who does not want to be buddies with the players. Pitching Coach Bryan Price would be great but I am not sure he is going to be mean enough right now and the Reds need a guy that will stir up the hen-house!

2. Trade Johnny Cueto. After seeing the way he handles playoffs and after him being injured the whole season maybe it is time to see what you can get for him.

3. Make Ryan Ludwick a bench player. This off-season the Reds should be looking to get a better solution at LF. If they are going to keep Todd Frazier at 3B they will need more pop coming out of the LF spot. A Right handed bat that will go in between Joey Votto and Jay Bruce. Moving Ludwick to the bench would then move Chris Heisey out!!!!! He should have been in the deal with Drew Stubbs to tell you the truth.

6. Let him steal! Get Billy Hamilton in CF and let him play a whole season as the lead off hitter.

7. Sign cheap catcher depth. I have a feeling the Reds are going to be needing more catcher depth if they want to continue making the playoffs. Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan got beat up this season. Don’t get me wrong, I love Corky Miller, but having a few more pro ready catchers could really help this team next season.

8. **** Fire Walt Jocketty! If at any time Walt says, “I don’t want to make a move just to make a move.” this off-season I think the owners should say, “You’re FIRED!” and get someone who will make moves to better the team. As far as I know, the Reds are in it to win it! So that means, getting players that will WIN IT!!!!

Shake it up!!!


Cincinnati Reds fired Dusty Baker!!! Should more moves be done? Yes!!! Walt Jocketty should be next! (You never gamble a season away on hurt players, especially players who were hurt the whole season!! Expecting them to play to their potential in a one game playoff game is just dumb!) And Johnny Cueto! (You should not be smiling and joking around after being pulled from a one game playoff game sir!!!) And the list goes on.

I am just a fan so I don’t have a real say in the matter but if I was the owner I would be going NUTS! Fire sale NUTS!!!! Walt Jocketty and Dusty Baker would have been fired before the plane landed back in Cincinnati. Johnny Cueto would be traded to Miami or Houston and others would be soon to follow. Then I would hire the most pissed off manager I could find and let him go crazy on the rest of the players for the whole season!

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Reds and am really not that bitter about the loss, I just wanted to let you know what I would do if I was the owner. So, just losing Dusty Baker is pretty good if you look at it like that. Will it be enough? I hope so. I really hope these “BOYS” wake up and realize that making the playoffs is one thing, winning the whole damn thing takes a hell of a lot more than just showing up!

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.
