Ryan Hanigan traded


Cincinnati Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan was traded to Tampa Bay Rays in a three team trade today. Reds get LHP prospect David Holmberg from Arizona Diamondbacks. Source I personally hate to see Ryan Hanigan go because he did a great job with the pitchers. In my mind it looks like Walt Jocketty is focusing more on offense the defense now and this could mean Brandon Phillips is next.

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!!!!

I was wrong about Homer Bailey


I will once again say I was very wrong about Homer Bailey and I am very happy the Reds front office never listened to me 2 years ago when I said, “Trade Bailey and Stubbs!” Homer Bailey has really become a great pitcher to watch now. Ryan Hanigan as his catcher has really given him confidence and that shows every time he pitches now. Bailey getting a no-hitter at Great American Ball Park against San Francisco Giants is what this team needed. This should boost the team to really start winning and once again make a push to win it all!

2013 Cincinnati Reds Top Player Predictions


My early predictions of who will do the best in 2013 for the Cincinnati Reds. (Out of players that are expected to be back.) I will work on a pitcher prediction as the off-season goes on. (I have a strange feeling the starting rotation will change again this off-season.)

Jaime Garcia part 2


The Reds have faced Jaime Garcia already this early season and hopefully they can get the win against him again tonight.

In two games this season he has thrown his 81 mph change-up 41 times (24.4%) 53.7% of them being strikes, 46% swing, 24% whiff and only 7% foul while 14.6% were put in play. He has also thrown a 4-seam fastball 20% of the time, slider 19%, 2-seam fastball 18.5%, cut fastball 9.5% and a curveball 8.3%. His season at-bat results are single 26.5%, strikeout 14%, groundout 14%, flyout 14%, walk 6%, pop out, double and grounded into DP 4%, sac bunt, sac fly, forceout, fielder choice out, lineout and triple are at 2%.

Last game Garcia’s at-bat results vs. the Reds were very interesting. Single 40%, Strikeout 16%, Groundout 12% and Walk, Sac Fly, Pop Out, Grounded Into DP, Sac Bunt, Forceout, Double and Flyout were all at 4%. [Source]

Cincinnati Reds add more depth with Dioner Navarro


Dioner Navarro signed with Cincinnati Reds and has been invited to spring training. This move adds more depth to catching for the Reds and should not be seen as a problem for starting catchers Ryan Hanigan, Devin Mesoraco and other catcher invites Corky Miller, Brian Esposito and Tucker Barnhart. It really gives more options to the Reds at that very important position and should help the team out during spring training. [Source - Mark Sheldon] and [Source - Tom Groeschen]

In 2011 Navarro had some interesting at-bat results for Los Angeles Dodgers. 21.57% groundout, 18.14% flyout, 17.16% strikeout, 10.78% single and 7.84% walk with 2.45% home runs. He had a lot of troubles with Sliders and Curveballs which both were 70.6% strikes with over 55% swung at and 10 to 14% whiffs. In 202 plate appearances for the Dodgers, Navarro had a .193 BA, .276 OBP and a .324 SLG with 35 strike outs and 20 walks. [at-bat stats - pitch f/x]
