Episode 50: ‘Somebody has to win Game 1′

September 28, 2020

The Reds are headed to Atlanta for the first round of the playoffs, and we haven't been this excited about a Reds team since 2012. Join us for our 50th episode, which is almost as remarkable of an accomplishment as what the Reds did over the final three weeks of the season. Nobody gave us or the Reds much of a chance to make it this far. Hang in till near the end to hear quite the logical discussion of whether it's more important to win Game 1 or Game 2.

The Reds - yes our Reds - are knocking on the door of the National League playoffs. We're excited, and you should be too. Listen and see what we think needs to happen on the final weekend.

Episode 48: How long is long enough for a starter?

Episode 48: How long is long enough for a starter?

August 9, 2020

We attempt to answer that question with our less than infinite wisdom. We do get some help from our old friend and coach, Don Callan. He coached a little baseball back in the day, watches the Reds every day and wore a leather helmet the first day he stepped on a football field. Join us for fun, old stories and the laughs that go with them and for a deep dive into what the numbers say about how David Bell manages his pitching staff.

Baseball is back this week and so are we. We run down the changes to baseball, discuss the roster and lineup and make some pretty bold predictions for the 60-game season.

Episode 46: Waiting on the season

Jeff and Tom gather via Zoom with a friend who is a Pirates fan. But don't let that scare you. We have a good time talking about what it's like not to have any baseball, let alone the majors. But we are hopeful the season will find a way to start in May even if the division alignments are wacky.

Episode 45: Do the Reds have enough offense?

January 25, 2020

Will the 2020 Cincinnati Reds win more than 80 games? Are the new position players - Moose and Shogo - enough of an upgrade? Can old Votto be at least a little more like young Votto and not 2019 Votto? Who will be in the outfield rotation? We know thousands are asking. And we're here with answers, or at least muddled thoughts.  

Episode 44: #GetTheHitting

Episode 44: #GetTheHitting

October 3, 2019

It's no secret that the Cincinnati Reds need an offensive boost next season. We compare the Reds to the Cardinals and Dodgers and talk about the kinds of changes we want to see before next season. Please forgive the audio quality. We had some technical issues, but we wanted to post this show anyway. Please hang in there. It's a shorter show than usual anyway. Go Reds!

Episode 43: It’s August and the Reds are relevant

Episode 43: It’s August and the Reds are relevant

August 12, 2019

The Reds might be only on the fringes of the playoff chase, but that's better than being the completely out of it like the Pirates. We talk about Trevor Bauer the roster shakeup (and Aquino), what this team might do down the stretch (and Aquino) and what next year's roster might look like (and Aquino). Lots of good stuff to talk about this time of year for a change. Be sure to also follow us on Twitter and Facebook

Episode 42: Happier than usual at All-Star break

Episode 42: Happier than usual at All-Star break

July 8, 2019

To be in the hunt at the All-Star break is fun for a change. But can the Reds play at a high enough level over the last 75 games to climb into first place or earn a wild-card berth? We figure it's going to take playing close to a .600 level or better. Fortunately none of the other teams in the division look like a 90-win team either. We talk about our all-star pitchers, who we want around next year (and disagree on Puig) and try to guess a little at what the Reds might do. But it's not easy to read their minds. Hang around to the end to hear Part 3 of our look back at the Reds 3-for-5 trade with the Astros in 1971.

Episode 41: Feeling positive about the Redlegs

Episode 41: Feeling positive about the Redlegs

June 25, 2019

Positive vibes are vibing around the Reds these days. What should we expect? Hard to say, but we have some opinions of course. We talk about the whole buyer-seller thing at the trade deadline, possible future of the starting rotation, Senzel and many other insightful things. We also take another look back at the big trade in '71 and discuss why we remember Ed Armbrister.
