Reds and Dodgers Swap Large Contracts in Blockbuster Deal

Oh my God, it finally happened. As first reported by Whitty via his screenshot of the ESPN alert he got on his phone, the Cincinnati Reds have finally traded Homer Bailey to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Continue reading

Is This the End of the Homer Bailey Era in Cincinnati?

Haha yeah right. We know exactly how this is gonna play out. Despite Jim Riggleman’s announcement that Tyler Mahle will replace him in the rotation, we know exactly where Homer Bailey will be in 2019. That’s right, starting on Opening Day after spending the rest of this season on the DL after they find something wrong with him here in a few days.

I’m sending my medical bills to the Castellini family when I have a stroke..  Continue reading

Nati Boys #60: Nobody Cares


The Reds are shaking things up as they’ve decided to move Homer Bailey to the bullpen and pull Jesse Winker out of the regular outfield rotation.  While the Nati Boys agree that Bailey to the ‘pen is a good move, the Winker decision has us scratching our heads.  We talk about the dream matchup we have this year in the NBA finals, and we provide a quick update on the NHL finals as well.  Mac let’s us all know that he’s been wearing the same pair of socks for the past 6 months, and in honor of the city of Cincinnati getting an MLS franchise we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of things that we just don’t care about.

Nati Boys #57: Batman (Returns?)


The Nati Boy’s break down the Matt Harvey/Devin Mesoraco trade between the Reds and Mets, and go off on a slight tangent about the night life scene in Cincinnati. Since we now have two “Batman’s” in the pitching rotation, our fantasy draft this week is of the best nicknames in sports. Enjoy the show!

Reds Acquire Matt Harvey, Add Second Batman to Starting Rotation

On Tuesday, just hours before the Reds took on the Mets in game two of their three game series, Cincinnati sent often-injured Devin Mesoraco and cash to Queens in return for the shell of Matt Harvey. I want to hate this trade so bad, but it’s hard to get too upset over the Reds trying to catch lightning in a bottle during what has been a dreadful start to the 2018 season. I was always a huge Mesoraco fan and it sucks to see him go after we sat through season after season of bad luck injuries, eventually losing his starting job to the Gold Glove Tucker Barnhart.

I think the long term fate for Mez is in the AL so he can finish his career as a designated hitter, but for now he’ll get to call New York home and likely start on a regular basis with Travis d’Arnaud out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

The Reds are now faced with a very troubling situation in their starting rotation: who is the real Batman? I’ll let them sort it out, but I’m at the game so I’ll have any live reports of Matt Harvey showing up to Great American Ball Park in the Batmobile to fight Homer Bailey.

The mother fucker better like Skyline.
