While You Were Sleeping, Luis Castillo Officially Declared Himself a Cy Young Candidate

West coast baseball used to be a treat. In college, it just meant we had something to watch while we ordered food, drank whatever was left over in the keg from the weekend before and hours of MLB The Show Rivalry Mode (BRING IT BACK, SONY). Now, it’s exhausting. Every year when the Reds make their trips out west, I get really excited to watch late night baseball, just to fall asleep by the 5th inning. Last night was no different. Pizza -> Iron Man -> Reds game -> asleep by the 5th inning.

Just because the rest of Cincinnati fell asleep after a belly full of Trotta’s and Tony Stark being a badass doesn’t mean Luis Castillo didn’t continue to mow down the National League one game at a time.  Continue reading

Mac’s Cincinnati Reds Throwback Uniform Series: 1911 Edition

Throughout the 2019 season, the Cincinnati Reds will be wearing a series of throwback uniforms to commemorate their 150th Anniversary and being the birthplace of professional baseball. Each weekend during a home series, the Reds will wear the uniforms from a different era to put their rich baseball history on display. Along with the Reds’ celebration, I will be reviewing and providing thoughts on each uniform throughout the season.

Reds 1911

After last night’s dominating performance in the 1902 uniforms, the Cincinnati Reds will sport their away jersey from the 1911 season. The blue and red is the signature look of our intrastate rival the Cleveland Indians, so I’m not really too high on the look our mighty Redlegs will be taking the field in for today’s afternoon game. The Reds should be red. Not blue. Red. Continue reading

The Reds Front Office is Done Lollygaggin’ Around. Matt Kemp Released, Scott Schebler Optioned to Triple-A

Let’s just get the Scott Schebler news out of the way first. I think we all knew this would happen and honestly, it happened a day later than I anticipated.

I assumed top prospect Nick Senzel getting called up meant Schebler was out, but they decided to wait a day on the move for whatever reason. It’s one thing to hit .123 through the first month of the season, but it’s another thing to look as lost and as clueless as Schebler has at the plate. Aside from a game here or there and his at-bat with bases loaded last night, he’s looked like a high school sophomore getting a major league call up like it’s some fucking Disney movie. Only this is real life and not a Disney movie, so the 15-year-old isn’t there to save the day. He’s gonna strike out every damn time and barely hit the ball out of the infield when he does make contact.

It’s not just a slow start either. Ever since coming back from injury in the 2018 season, he’s hit .202 and has been a pretty big disappointment following his 2017 campaign.

Now that Schebler is in Triple-A Louisville and hopefully getting everything figured out, we can move on to the other news of the day… Continue reading

Mac’s Cincinnati Reds Throwback Uniform Series: 1902 Edition

Throughout the 2019 season, the Cincinnati Reds will be wearing a series of throwback uniforms to commemorate their 150th Anniversary and being the birthplace of professional baseball. Each weekend during a home series, the Reds will wear the uniforms from a different era to put their rich baseball history on display. Along with the Reds’ celebration, I will be reviewing and providing thoughts on each uniform throughout the season. 

Reds 1902

The first of fifteen throwback uniforms for the Reds in the 2019 season will be worn tonight as they take on the San Francisco Giants. When the Reds first wore these uniforms, California had only been a state for 52-years and 56-years away from welcoming the relocated New York Giants to the west coast. Continue reading
