I will gladly accept bribery to put your site on this list.
My favorite site. Not for those easily offended.
This is a great NBA blog. The NBA (National Basketball Association) is a professional men's basketball league, consisting of 29 American teams, and one Canadian team. It was founded in 1946. Cincinnati used to have a team. I wish it did now.
Better Off Red
Jamie Ramsey is the Assistant Media Relations Director of the Reds. He takes you behind the scenes of a Major League team. And he writes funny captions for his photos.
Plenty of scenery and funny stuff on Big Smudge. I'll be honest, these guys told me they were fans of my show, and even if they didn't mean it, that gets them linked.
Bugs and Cranks
If it's about baseball, these guys usually have something to say about it. And it's usually funny.
Booze, Ladies, and Football.
Calling It Like It Is
A guy from Cincinnati, who uh, well he calls it like it is.
Chris Sabo's Goggles
A Reds fan stuck in Chicago does a blog. He says the purpose of the blog is to inform people of the Reds without the geeky stuff, like facts for example. My kind of guy.
You're probably thinking this website is about me. Actually, it's not.
Local college basketball blog by two guys...one a UC fan, the other an XU fan.
The Godfather of sports blogs.
My favorite baseball blog. I thought I loved the game, then I read these guys.
Stuff guys like. At least stuff normal guys like.
Hugging Harold Reynolds
Very funny sports blog with one of my favorite names.
John Clay's Sidelines
John is an outstanding writer who covers everything and anything UK-related.
Larry Brown Sports
The other Larry Brown, not the guy who's coached half the teams in the NBA.
Look At Me Shirts
Be the guy in the ironic shirt. Take credit for someone else's joke.
Mo Egger's Blog
Did you really think my blog wouldn't be on a list of "favorites?"
Do you like mind-numbing statistical analysis of the Reds? Do you treat every game like the fate of the world rests on it? This site is probably not for you.
Most negative man in America. And I usually agree with him.
Pro Football Talk
Not daily, but almost hourly reading for NFL fans.
Everything and anything Reds...and more, by Reds fans.
Rush The Court
The Ubiquitous college basketblog.
A little UK, a little Louisville. A lot of funny.
Anything and everything hoops.
A Cincinnati guy based in Vegas. What I'd write if I could write.
Because some things can't be taught.
I admit, I'm a geek.
Who Dey Revolution
No site better captures the frustration of being a Bengals fan better than this one. Fan empowerment at its best.
A FEW MO' THINGS, 6/11/12
Programming Notes: I'm on every afternoon this week on ESPN1530, plus tonight and Thursday night on 700WLW.
Three really good games at Great American Ballpark yielded only one win, and last night's loss is the current leader for the title most disheartening defeat of the season.
When you have a four-run lead in the seventh inning, and you hand it to a bullpen that's been the backbone of the team, you're supposed to win the game.
I'll give Dusty a break here. I know with only one man on base and two out, it's fair to wonder if the Reds manager was a little too trigger-happy with his starter, but with the score 6-2 and with the likes of Arredondo, Marshall, Ondrusek, and Chapman, all of whom have been very good this season, waiting in the wings, is it too much to ask them to get the game's final seven outs?
Perhaps Dusty could've instructed his relievers to borrow from Jose Valverde's playbook and load up the baseball....
....beats throwing up all over the mound, I guess.
What was odd, and I don't know how to capture this on this blog, was the mood of the crowd as last night's meltdown unfolded. Not angry. Not restless. Not uncaring either. Rather this weird, quiet, vibe that filled the air. Weird.
-I see both sides of the walk/don't walk Cabrera debate. Fielder is one of the game's best run producers, but Sean Marshall is getting paid to get out of those situations and his manager put him in a situation he's compensated well to get out of.
-Lost in the frustration of the last two games (and Thursday's for good measure), is how good and exciting Friday's was. I still can't believe that neither manager knew that Wilson Valdez was bunting.
And I still can't believe how brutal Wilson's hair is.
-With the ESPN crew in town for Sunday Night Baseball, some stuff from Buster Olney....
The legend of Billy Hamilton grows. The Reds' minor-leaguer -- a second-round pick in 2009 -- has 70 stolen bases in 84 attempts for Sinlge-A Bakersfield, and he's increased his on-base percentage this year from .340 to .401. Walt Jocketty, the Reds' general manager, has asked his player development folks about the nature of Hamilton's stolen bases, and he has been assured that this is not a case of a baserunner piling up numbers without discretion, in empty moments. "He's running in the right situations," said Jocketty.
Chris Buckley, the Reds' amateur scouting director, wrote in an e-mail that Cincinnati "first starting scouting him in the 11th grade. Our scouts raved about his speed and athleticism. He reminded me of a guy I grew up admiring and played with as a young guy -- Willie Wilson." Hamilton was a four-sport athlete, and the more he plays, Buckley wrote, the better he's gotten.
Hamilton is a shortstop, but the Reds have the smooth-fielding Zack Cozart in the big leagues and Didi Gregorius in Double-A, and at some point in the upcoming offseason, Cincinnati may decide to shift Hamilton to another position.
Todd Frazier of the Reds seems a lot like Sean Casey: Loves playing baseball, always has a smile and is a positive force. In his 79th game in the big leagues Sunday night, he mashed an opposite-field homer -- and when the ball cleared the right field wall, a huge smile formed on his face. Nothing showy and certainly not an effort to show anybody up; it was just pure joy.
-Joey Votto is not only the best hitter I've ever seen, Tom Verducci says he's currently the best hitter in baseball.
-This blog started at 9am. It's finished at 1:47. Should give you a glimpse into how today has gone. I haven't had a chance to get to the NBA Finals, a great game seven on Saturday night, the boxing sham, or much of anything else. I have six hours today to cover it all. 3:04 on ESPN1530, then at 6:05 on 700WLW. Be there for both and be glad you're not a Jaguars fan.
