The Cincinnati Reds have a rich tradition of baseball dating back to the 19th century. The first few decades of Reds baseball had little to cheer over, but in 1919 Cincinnati broke that trend and made the postseason for the first time, winning the World Series over the Chicago White Sox. Two more decades of futility ensued after the franchise’s first championship, but the Reds reached back-to-back World Series in 1939 and 1940. After coming up just short in ’39, Cincinnati secured its second World Series the following season. In the 1970s the Reds gained notoriety with The Big Red Machine, the nickname given to the Cincinnati teams that terrorized the National League in that decade. Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Pete Rose and Joe Morgan headlined teams that finished first or second in the division every year but one in the decade. The ‘70s Reds made six playoff appearances won 100-plus games three times, reached four World Series, and won titles in 1975 and 1976. In 1990, the Reds won their most recent title with the help of shortstop Barry Larkin. Cincinnati has retired the numbers of 10 players and managers through the team’s successful history.

2015 Cincinnati Reds Season Preview
After two straight trips to the MLB Post Season, the Cincinnati Reds took a step back in 2014. The Reds finished with a 76-86 records, finishing 4th in a crowded NL Central Division. Cincinnati struggled mightily on the road in 2014, losing almost 50 games away from the Great American Ballpark. The Cincinnati Reds made a number of big roster moves that they hope will pay off with a 2015 NL Central title. The Reds shipped away Chris Heisey, Alfred Simon, and Mat Latos in return for Matt Magill, Jonathan Crawford, Eugenio Suarez, and Chad Wallach. The Reds also brought in Marlon Byrd to try and add some power hitting to an offense that struggled at times in 2014. If the Reds are going to return to the postseason in 2015, they will have to drastically improve on the road. Look for the Cincinnati Reds to be tough again in 2015.
2014 Cincinnati Reds Season Preview
The Reds came so close at the end of the season in 2013, but fell in the wild card playoff game to the Pirates. This year they’ll try to unseat the Cardinals on top of the NL Central, but it will be an uphill battle. All eyes will be on Billy Hamilton this year after he shined in September by hitting .368 and stealing 13 bases. Hamilton stole 155 bases in 2012 between A and AA. If the Reds can get through the plethora of injuries they’re starting the season with (Chapman, Broxton, Latos, Schumaker) they should win around 90 games in 2014.
The Reds signed Homer Bailey to a long-term deal, and when all the pieces are put into the puzzle they look like one of the best teams in baseball. If they can battle through injuries and make a run in the summer, expect this team to be fighting for a playoff spot.
