Episode 28: Jesse, Scooter, Hunter and the future

June 12, 2018

We're just as happy as everyone else that Jesse Winker is playing. Two of us at least think it's at least worth talking to Scooter Gennett about a new contract. We talk about the progress Hunter Greene is making in Dayton. And we love that guy who sprints in from the bullpen.

Episode 27: Sick and tired of being sick and tired

May 30, 2018

We work really hard to see the glass half full with Tom's data-driven quiz. But it's hard when you talk about the outfield situation, the error-prone infield and Homer Bailey. The big question is does this management team have a viable plan? We also discuss Scooter, Hawaiian shirt day and a throwback player who got away.

Episode 26: Your Reds questions answered … sort of

April 26, 2018

Since we last met Bryan Price has been replaced by Jim Riggleman. The Reds are still struggling with their worst 25-game start in history, so who's to blame. We don't think it's Price. The blame starts at the top. We discuss Billy Hamilton's inability to learn to be a good hitter and what it will take to make fans believe the front office really wants to win. We talk a little Hiunter Greene. And we remember the 1970s Reds team, which went to the World Series with all of its best players in their 20s.

Episode 25: Bad start but at least there’s Hunter Greene

April 14, 2018

We gather for a Saturday morning breakfast of omelets to soften blow of the bad start to this Reds' season. We have not lost all hope despite the titanic struggles this team has had. But we do find something positive to talk about, and his name is Hunter Greene. Is he the next Doc Gooden? Hey, at least baseball is back, and that's always a good thing.

Episode 24: Play ball!

March 29, 2018

The offseason is finally over and it's time to see if the Cincinnati Reds can actually improve on the past two years. Jeff shares thoughts about things that could happen that would ensure a better season. Our guest on this show is Lynn Howard. He came to Studio 82 with several Reds caps and had great stories to tell about each of them, including autographs from some all-time Reds' greats. And Lynn talks about his unique experience of attending all of the Astros' home postseason games on their way to winning the World Series.

Episode 23: Spring is here and we’re optimistic this season will be better

February 24, 2018

Joey Votto says he's tired of losing, and so are we. A healthy rotation (cross your fingers), position players who are finding their way (especially, we hope, Winker and Senzel) and good managing by Bryan Price of the young guys (again, cross your fingers) are our reasons for optimism. We answer the challenge of an over-under on Ws this season from a listener, and we relive some of our memories at spring training games.

Episode 22: Baseball is almost here much to our delight

February 11, 2018

The Reds start reporting to Goodyear, Arizona, this week and we have great hope that this season will be much better than recent ones. We pose and answer questions like, "The Reds will have a winning season if ..." and "Homer Bailey will ..." And we recorded live video of the show to our Facebook page (search 3OldRedsFans). Be sure to follow us there and get notified when we go live.

Episode 21: Talkin’ Reds around the space heater

January 12, 2018

Well, the Reds' roster doesn't look much different than it did at the end of the season. But it was time to get back together and talk baseball in the dead of winter. So keep warm with us around the space heater, enjoy some Good & Plenty and hear our way-too-early predictions for the number of Ws in 2018.

Episode 20: Our 2017 postmortem and 2018 prognostications

October 5, 2017

Well, we were wrong about 70 victories, but we own up to it and discuss why the Reds fell short. We talk about the great Joey Votto. And we discuss the likely look of next year's rotation, bullpen, infield and outfield and ponder who from this team might be traded.

Episode 19: Another losing season winds down, but hope exists

September 22, 2017

Yes, the Cincinnati Reds are about to complete their 14th losing season in the past 17 years. But we are Reds fans and we still care, still have hope and still root for every W we can muster. And we look forward to vintage baseball on Oct. 15 in Cedarville to celebrate Bumpus Jones day.
