Thanks to Scooter Gennett, We Know What the Reds Will Look Like in 2052

FaceApp has taken the world by storm today. To be honest, this could’ve been around forever but today is the first day I’ve heard of it because I saw it all over Twitter and Instagram, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hooked. I’ve checked to see how old I’d look with all different types of facial expressions and how badass I’ll look in my 70s while wearing a Blue Jackets hat and noise cancelling headphones. I ran out of ways to smile/dress/curl my upper lip by noon and it sucked, so I started to wonder what other people would look like when they get old and crusty.. and whatta ya know….

Professional baseball players, they’re just like us!  Continue reading

Bengals and Reds Woes

Riverfront Radio Logo

Clint Boling is calling it quits for the Bengals, and we wish we could retire early too. The Reds are off to a crappy start to the 2nd half of the season, and we wonder if they’ll be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. We also talk more in depth about the Reds 150th anniversary jerseys they’ve been wearing. Enjoy the show!

Wake Up With Todd Frazier’s 2015 Home Run Derby Victory

In honor of tonight’s Home Run Derby (which shouldn’t even count since Cleveland’s hometown boy Derek Dietrich isn’t in it despite Christian Yelich bowing out due to a back injury), I thought it might be nice to look back at the only good thing that has happened in Cincinnati sports in the last 5 years. 2015 doesn’t feel like it was that long ago, but looking back at the highlights of Todd Frazier’s insane final round of the Home Run Derby in front of the hometown Cincinnati crowd reminds me how sad our sports lives have been since that July evening.

The Reds traded Todd Frazier to the White Sox after the 2015 season, but The Toddfather will forever be royalty in Cincinnati for what happened on Monday, July 13, 2015. Continue reading

Updated: Ranking the Reds On-field 4th of July Hats

If you’re anything like me, you’re either anticipating a bald spot, or already covering one up with a sweet New Era cap featuring your favorite team.  Since 2011, MLB has been coming out with special Stars and Stripes editions of hats for all teams to wear on the 4th of July.  Here are my personal rankings of the hats.  Shout me out on twitter with your favorite one: @NatiBoyDB.

First to worst:

2011

2011: pictured above is the best hat that they’ve come out with so far.  It incorporates the flag, and has a great mix of all of the colors into the “C” logo.  It helps that the Reds main color is featured prominently on the hats, because I always think the Stars and Stripes hats for teams with no red or blue in their team colors looks weird (the Orioles, for example). I really think they peaked early with this one; it was the first edition of the Stars and Stripes hats, and they knocked it out of the park, only to go downhill from there.

I still wear this hat; I wore it last night, actually.  Love it.

The Cubs are Stupid

Riverfront Radio Logo

The Reds earned another series victory over the Cubs this past weekend, which included some fireworks between Yasiel Puig and Pedro Strop.  We discuss that, David Bell’s record-setting ejection numbers and the fact that Castillo is the lone Reds All-Star.  We touch on the ridiculous NBA free agency numbers and Mac and Whitty get their hopes up thanks to some late-breaking NHL free agency rumors.  We also take a moment to wish are friends north of the border a Happy Canada day, as well as a Happy Fourth of July to all of our listeners here in the states.
