The best throwing arms in the NL Central

@MannyOnMLB
May 29, 2020

We all love to see a cannon for an arm, whether it's from the outfield with throws nearing or surpassing 100 mph to the plate, or on the infield when someone makes a slick play and has to show off the arm to get the runner in time at first

Former GM Krivsky made splash in 2006 with three key moves

May 27, 2020

CINCINNATI -- General managers are constantly working the phones, looking for the best deals. Not all are great, industry-rattling moves. Some of them work out well, and some certainly do not. But for Wayne Krivsky, the Reds' new GM in 2006, the first three trades worked out really well. In

CINCINNATI -- For the first time since Spring Training was halted in mid-March by the COVID-19 pandemic, Reds facilities were open to limited individual workouts.

@GoldenSombrero and @JimCallisMLB and @JonathanMayo
May 27, 2020

Pitching prospects are an inherently volatile group, one with more cautionary tales than success stories, but the type of impact that a highly touted young hurler can have on an organization’s long-term outlook cannot be overstated. The below list of the most-hyped right-handed pitching prospects of the past 20 years

No one loves a good debate quite like baseball fans, and with that in mind, we asked each of our beat reporters to rank the top five players by position in the history of their franchise, based on their career while playing for that club. These rankings are for fun

These are the best gloves in the NL Central

@Sportsgal25
May 22, 2020

Few things are prettier than an outfielder racing to chase down a hard-hit ball in the gap, leaving his feet in a full dive to pluck the ball from the air before crashing to the ground with the ball securely in his glove. Or a third baseman flashing catlike reflexes

For 1 season, these 30 guys played like HOFers

@williamfleitch
May 25, 2020

It’s easy to break down truly great seasons from the superstars. If anything, the hardest part is deciding which Mike Trout season is the best, or which Barry Bonds, or which Albert Pujols. The real fun is the random superstar season that comes out of nowhere, a player who isn’t

Each MLB team's best Draft of all time

@GoldenSombrero and @JimCallisMLB and @JonathanMayo
May 23, 2020

The Dodgers had mixed success in the first three years of the Draft, sandwiching lackluster efforts in 1965 and 1967 around finding three All-Stars (Charlie Hough, Bill Russell, Billy Grabarkewitz) and a Rookie of the Year (Ted Sizemore) in 1966. Los Angeles slid from a World Series championship to an

CINCINNATI -- Like everyone else, the Reds don’t know when the 2020 season could start or even when preparations for a season might begin ramping up. But they feel quite confident that when those days come, third baseman Eugenio Suárez and center fielder Nick Senzel will be ready. They had

May 18, 2020

CINCINNATI -- If the fellas at Dude Perfect need a guest star, Reds pitching prospect Hunter Greene could be their guy. Greene was coveted in the 2017 MLB Draft -- and selected second overall -- for his triple-digit velocity. In a Sunday post across his multiple social media platforms, the

These NL Central players feel need for speed

@JakeCrouseMLB
May 15, 2020

When Draft time comes around, guys with elite speed tend to get first-round looks -- for good reason. Speed is one of the most prominent two-way skills in baseball; it both impacts a player’s ability to reach base and his ability to track down batted balls and field them cleanly.

As baseball stadiums sit empty, still, you can’t help and look at them and think of what has happened there, memories we’ll carry with us the rest of our lives. Because when greatness has happened before, it reminds us it can, and will, happen again. So, today at the Thirty,

Samurai swords, ailurophobia and more
@michaelsclair
May 17, 2020

A ballplayer's life doesn't begin and end at the park. Sure, they spend plenty of their time there -- lifting weights, drinking nutrient-dense smoothies and taking BP all before the game, but just like Walt Whitman, the players contain multitudes. So, we delved into the 2020 media guides, looked to

If you’re looking for some of the toolsiest players in baseball, look no further than the outfield. That’s true across the big leagues and on prospect rankings over the years. Sorting through the most hyped outfield prospects over the past 20 years provided a ton of options, with players who
