  1. Bailey deal weakens 2015 free agent class

    David Schoenfield

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

  5. Bailey blows away Giants in dominant no-no

    David Schoenfield

    Where to begin? How about with this: No-hitters never get old and if you hear someone saying there are too many of them these days, just walk away. This person is not your friend. Where to begin? How about pointing out that Homer Bailey now has tw...

    David Schoenfield

    Some reaction to Tuesday's excellent slate of games ... Wanted to check out those gritty Diamondbacks so was watching their game against the Yankees. The 4-2 Yankees win ended up coming down to one pitch, Robinson Cano's three-run homer off Brand...

    David Schoenfield

  13. What will Reds do about starting rotation?

    David Schoenfield

    To put it delicately, Dusty Baker has a conflicted history with starting pitchers. There was that decision on the final day of the 1993 pennant race to give the ball to a rookie named Salomon Torres. Or handing the game ball to Russ Ortiz when he rem...
