  1. How are playoff rotations lining up?

    David Schoenfield

    Just more than two weeks ago, the Texas Rangers were in pretty good position, leading the A's by 2.5 games in the American League West and coming off a 20-7 August that had them angling for the best record in the league, even with the Red Sox and Tig...

  3. Here's Billy! Hamilton's SB big for Reds

    David Schoenfield

    I like the expanded rosters of September. There, I said it. Of course it's completely illogical to play under different rules in September than the previous five months. Of course it's a little ridiculous to see dugouts crammed excessively full with ...

  4. In praise of Dusty Baker (sort of)

    David Schoenfield

    On Wednesday night, Dusty Baker used Aroldis Chapman for two innings to close out the Cincinnati Reds' 10-7 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was only the second time all season he'd brought in Chapman before the ninth inning (the other comin...

  5. Fascination Factor: Ranking all 30 teams

    David Schoenfield

    The Washington Nationals were supposed to be the best team in baseball, a team that could win 100 games and maybe blow out the rest of the National League. But, you know, that would have been kind of boring, just doing what everyone expected. The fac...

  6. Have Reds benefited from easy schedule?

    David Schoenfield

    This came up a couple times from readers in my chat session Tuesday, suggesting that the Cincinnati Reds may not be as strong as their 27-18 record because they've had an easy schedule so far, in particular compared to the Cardinals and Braves. In...

  7. Five things to watch this weekend

    David Schoenfield

    The hottest team in baseball is those Cleveland Indians, and we don't need instant replay to prove it. The Tribe has won 10 of 11 with terrific pitching and more than a few home runs. Mark Reynolds leaves nothing to chance with 500-foot blasts. Scott...

  8. Did Dusty learn anything this weekend?

    David Schoenfield

    On Friday afternoon, Aroldis Chapman had a rare bad outing trying to finish up the Cincinnati Reds' 6-2 lead over the Chicago Cubs. So bad, in fact, that manager Dusty Baker actually removed his Proven Closer (tm) for J.J. Hoover with the game on the...

  9. Which contender is most collapse-proof?

    David Schoenfield

    Eric Karabell and I briefly raised this question a couple weeks ago on a SweetSpot TV: Which team is most collapse-proof? Or, to rephrase it, which is least likely to go all 2012 Red Sox on us? At the time, we mentioned the Reds, but I'm not so sure ...

  10. Reds rescue Dusty Baker from blunder

    David Schoenfield

    Consider that the Cincinnati Reds entered Monday's home game against the Philadelphia Phillies having lost five games in a row. Aroldis Chapman, the relief pitcher deemed so valuable as a late-inning reliever that the Reds backed off their plan to mo...

  12. Once again, Dusty and the Reds fall short

    David Schoenfield

    There was one more epic confrontation left for the San Francisco Giants before they could close out one of the great comebacks in playoff history. Sergio Romo, the guy with the long beard, an 87 mph fastball, a nasty slider and the control of Denn...

  13. Lincecum pitches Giants into Game 5

    David Schoenfield

    You never want a series to turn on the health of a team's ace, but here we are: The Cincinnati Reds, up 2 games to 0 and going home for three games, will need a Game 5 victory to advance to the NLCS. With Johnny Cueto unavailable after his first-i...

  14. Reds blow opportunity to sweep series

    David Schoenfield

    That was one of the more entertaining games of the postseason, a classic pitching duel of sorts, with some interesting strategic decisions and some missed opportunities. The Cincinnati Reds will be kicking themselves for not taking advantage of one o...

  15. Bronson Arroyo makes Giants weep

    David Schoenfield

    Bronson Arroyo wasn't exactly the worst starting pitcher in baseball last season. I mean, he did take the mound 32 times and pitched 199 innings, so he at least fit the description of "veteran innings eater." But the rest of his numbers screamed "...

  16. Baker's smart move with Latos pays off

    David Schoenfield

    When Cincinnati Reds starter Johnny Cueto had to leave with back spasms after recording just one out Saturday, manager Dusty Baker and pitching coach Bryan Price had four reasonable options: 1. Bring in reliever Sam LeCure, who didn't start a game...
