  1. The evolution of Billy Hamilton

    Christina Kahrl

    CHICAGO -- What if I told you two things about Cincinnati Reds rookie Billy Hamilton, and both were demonstrably true? They would be (1) Hamilton has been a disappointment; and (2) Hamilton is a significantly better ballplayer than expected. That ...

  3. Chapman's return good news twice over

    Christina Kahrl

    Aroldis Chapman is back, and if you're any kind of fan of the Reds or any other team, how can you not root for the guy as he comes back from a frightening line drive that cracked his skull in spring training? Even if you set aside the basic baseball ...

  4. Reds' Leake, Frazier have big parts to play

    Christina Kahrl

    When you look at the Reds and Pirates, it's easy to get caught up in the big stars: Andrew McCutchen and Joey Votto, both National League MVPs, both leading candidates for the face of the game, both of them engines to power the possible in two NL Cen...

  5. Sizing up the best World Series Web Gems

    Christina Kahrl

    There's something ironic about talking about some of the best plays in World Series history when the key feature of the first two games of this year's Fall Classic have been the defensive miscues that decided the outcome. But as quickly as we've judg...

  6. Bucs, Reds sort stuff out before showdown

    Christina Kahrl

    You might expect that the easy focus during baseball's penultimate regular-season weekend is on guessing who's going to make it into October. Not so much in the National League, though, where the playoff slate has been essentially settled for weeks. ...

  7. Wainwright, Freese deliver big answers

    Christina Kahrl

    In September, five months into the long season, you don't want to be asking questions. You want to know what you've got and what you'll get from your players. But going into this weekend's series against the Pirates, the Cardinals had a pretty big qu...

  8. Reds' Leake coming into his own

    Christina Kahrl

    As we head into the stretch run, the Reds may be in third place in the NL Central, but they are among the heavy favorites to return to the postseason. And while an offense that features former MVP Joey Votto draws a lot of the attention, this year it...

  9. Reds' righty bats need to start hitting

    Christina Kahrl

    Now 11 games over .500 after beating the Cardinals on Saturday night, the Cincinnati Reds might seem like they're in a good spot with the fifth-best record in the league. As long as they continue to be just that wee bit better than mediocre, they can...

  10. Absent star performances, Giants struggle

    Christina Kahrl

    The defending world champs are taking a tumble of late. Between a 10-17 June and an MLB-low 16 wins since May 14 (tied with the Brewers), the San Francisco Giants are falling fast at a time when the Dodgers, Diamondbacks and perhaps even the Padres a...

  11. Which teams are taking big chances on D?

    Christina Kahrl

    As the Hot Stove League burns itself out and we near pitchers and catchers reporting, it's clear that some teams are making wishcasts about their rosters. Spring training might dispel how unrealistic expectations are for some winter lineup designs an...

  12. Overstocked rotations worth watching

    Christina Kahrl

    This time of year, it's easy to look at 40-man rosters around the game and wonder how teams are going to fit everybody into their regular-season rotation. The overstocked starting staffs of the Dodgers and Cardinals might seem to demand action, for e...

  13. Forget-me-nots for the missing men of 2012

    Christina Kahrl

    Say you're a team that has a problem, like losing an everyday player to free agency. Market solutions tend to be expensive, whether in cash spent or prospects dealt. But some teams already have potential solutions for their seeming offseason needs on...

  14. Does picking top skippers make sense?

    Christina Kahrl

    It was the managers' turn Tuesday in Major League Baseball's awards week, and you can understand why this might be greeted by a collective yawn by the performance-analysis community. The throwaway comment is that it's the award for whichever guy in t...

  15. A voter's 2012 NL Rookie of the Year ballot

    Christina Kahrl

  16. Johnny Cueto was jobbed

    Christina Kahrl

    Last night, MLB announced the finalists for the major awards. This generated a predictable amount of snark on Twitter (then again, what doesn't?). But beyond filling time during a slow news week, the exercise did two things: It not only told us who m...
