MLB playoffs 2010: The Reds' last stand

The front-page headline of today's Cincinnati Enquirer reads, "It Ain't Over Yet," which is surely meant as a battle cry of resilience for the hometown team (It Ain't Over!), but, considering the Reds' opponent, reads more like a tacit admission of impending doom (Yet). Only five teams have come back...

Calling All Cincinnati Fans: Do You Exist?

According to the Associated Press, the attendances for yesterday's day-night doubleheader between the Reds and Pirates in Cincinnati were the smallest in Great American Ballpark history. The nightcap hosted only 9,087 fans, a paltry sum for a park which can comfortably seat 42,000, particularly when you consider how many of those tickets were part of a season ticket package. If you think that's bad, brace yourself for the daytime attendance: below 2,000.

Bronson Arroyo's Supplements

According to USA Today, Arroyo is the rare (possibly only), player who openly flaunts MLB's supplement program. The pitcher will take anything and everything he thinks can help his performance, regardless if that means he's running the risk of a positive test under the league's banned substances agreement.

Selig Considering Re-instating Rose

According to the New York Daily News' Bill Madden, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is considering lifting Rose's lifetime ban from baseball, a result of serious lobbying by "some of the most influential Hall of Famers."

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

Something about Bronson Arroyo's exaggerated leg kick is almost beyond comical, both because of it's height and the fact that he's kind of a funny looking guy in the first place. What's more touching is the fact that it works. Really, how can this delivery work? How? And how does he avoid injury?

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

Why are we showing you this relatively standard photo of Reds reliever Daniel Herrerra? Well, for one thing, he earned his first Major League victory on Tuesday night. For another, he's short ... and very short for a professional athlete (not counting jockeys, of course). Herrerra is listed at 5 foot 6, though he may be significantly shorter than that. He also claims to throw five or six different pitches effectively (depending on whom you ask), including a screwball. And yes, he's used a screwball in a game this year. Long story short, he's an incredibly fascinating character, and a pitcher that bears watching, both next time you see the Reds on TV and in the future.
