Charlie Morton looks for his first win against the Reds
I’ve spent much of my focus on Francisco Liriano’s slow start to 2014, but the honest truth is that Charlie Morton is pretty close behind him in terms of frustration. It seemed like Morton was poised to take a big step forward in 2014 by combining his ground ball tendencies, his post-TJS velocity, and a […]

Game 21: Reds 4 Pirates 1
For six innings, Edinson Volquez matched Johnny Cueto out for out. He held the Reds to two base runners (one hit, one HBP), he was throwing all of his pitches where he wanted them, he was getting ahead of hitters and staying ahead. In the seventh, he got into some trouble, gave up a couple […]

Edinson Volquez faces his old team
The Edinson Volquez Redemption Tour stays at PNC Park tonight for Volquez’s first matchup of the season against the Cincinnati Reds team that he’s spent much of his career pitching for. Not so long ago, Volquez and Johnny Cueto represented a bright future for the Reds. Tonight, they’re mound opponents. As good as Volquez has […]

Suspensions for Sunday’s fight
For Milwaukee, catcher Martin Maldonado received a five-game suspension and [Carlos] Gomez was suspended for three. Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider was suspended for two games and catcher Russell Martin received a one-game suspension. And nobody ever talked about it again. Right? RIGHT?!?

Francisco Liriano looked much more like himself last night
I glossed over the more analytical aspects of last night’s game in my recap from last night, but I wanted to follow up on Francisco Liriano’s start since I’ve been paying so much attention to his performance to start the year. I watched the ESPN feed last night (there was no ROOT feed last night […]

A few updates and thoughts on the Wandy Rodriguez situation
The news about Wandy Rodriguez hitting the disabled list for a knee problem came at the end of the work day yesterday, so I didn’t have a chance to post much about it. The situation is a bit clearer now, so getting a post together today is probably a little bit more useful anyway. There’s […]

Game 20: Pirates 6 Reds 5
These last few games have been awfully hard to recap or make any sense of. The Pirates didn’t play badly in any of their three losses to end the Milwaukee series and honestly could’ve swept the Brewers with any luck at all, but they also did some pretty specifically terrible things to ensure each of the […]

Francisco Liriano tries to right the ship
I’ve written quite a bit about Francisco Liriano’s early-season struggles before and after his start against the Reds last week. There are two things to watch tonight, I think. The first is just his overall velocity, which has been down enough in the early season to catch my eye. The second is his pitch selection against righties; […]
