January 9, 2012: Larkin Heads to Cooperstown: Today, Cincinnati Reds shortstop Barry Larkin joined Chicago Cubs third baseman Ron Santo as players inducted to the 2012 class of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Both Larkin (2010) and Santo (2006) gained entry into the Baseball Evolution Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility.


Jeff Bagwell increased his voting percentage from 41% in 2011 to 56% in 2012, his awesome lifetime numbers offsetting the controversy of his era. Jack Morris, who received two-thirds of the vote up from 53.5% last year, has two more seasons of Hall of Fame eligibility. His lackluster career numbers are being offset by feel-good intangibles.

Franchise History

The Beginning - In 1869, the first ever professional baseball team was the Cincinnati Red Stocking. They laid the ground work for organized baseball and the first ever major professional league, the National League. The 1869 team, however, did not become the Reds as we know them today. Today's incarnation was born in 1882 as part of the American Association. In 1890, the Reds became part of the National League.

Best Trade in Team History - In November of 1971, the Reds acquired Joe Morgan, along with Ed Armbrister, Jack Billingham, Cesar Geronimo, and Denis Menke, in exchange for Lee May, Tommy Helms, and Jimmy Stewart. May, Helms, and Stewart would accomplish little for the Astros, but Joe Morgan would become the centerpiece of the Big Red Machine in the 1970s.

Worst Trade in Team History - Just before Spring Training, 2000, the Reds sent Mike Cameron, Brett Tomko, Antonio Perez, and Jake Meyer to the Mariners in exchange for Ken Griffey, Jr. The Kid has been plagued by injuries in his time in Cincy, has managed to play over 100 games only three times in six years and managed over 130 only once, all while pulling in $12.5 million per year.

2007 Reds Preview
The 2006 Reds were a surprising team, and the 2007 Reds are a deceptive team.

September, 2006 - Done with Dunn? -

Is anyone else as unimpressed with Adam Dunn as Asher is? Besides the ability to draw walks and hit homers, Asher doesn't see anything to like in the Reds' giant.

Keith, on the other hand, believes that anyone who doesn't realize that Adam Dunn is a fantastic player is a Dunnce.

Asher, having initially been unimpressed by Adam Dunn, took another look at the Dunner after Keith's analysis, and did an about face. As a result, he crafted the following letter to Reds fans.

2006 Reds Preview
Asher tries to figure out why he loves the Reds, and puts a surprisingly high win value on the acquisition of Bronson Arroyo.

Gil Hodges - Hall of Famer? 12/28/05
Looking at Cepeda, Perez, and Hodges, we see that there may be somewhat compelling arguments for Hodges' entry into the Hall.

Splitsville: Is Tony Perez a Clutch Hitter? 9/27/05
Tony Perez got elected into the Hall of Fame mostly on the strength of his huge career RBI total, which allegedly signifies his ability to hit in the clutch. Detractors claim that his RBI total is more a product of his being a part of one of the best offenses ever than a product of his clutch performance. Here’s what the numbers say.

The Eric Milton Debate
Keith and Asher mix it up over Eric Milton, park factors, and other things.

He Shouldn't Be In, But He Should Be Eligible
