Cincinnati Reds

If the Cincinnati Reds could play the Chicago Cubs every day, they might just be the playoff team that the 2014 schedule says they're not. The Reds return to Wrigley Field on Monday night to open a three-game series with the host Cubs in a meeting of the fourth- and fifth-place teams in a top- heavy National League Central Division.

4 Important Reds Storylines to Monitor This Offseason

The health of a few key guys, the possibility of trading names that properly account for the core of this very team and a few other roster possibilities are all worth monitoring over the winter.

St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals saw their recent momentum halted with a loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night, but they'll have a chance to return to recent success on Wednesday night when the teams continue with game three of a four-game set at Great American Ball Park. The loss was little more than cosmetic damage for the Cardinals, who maintained a 4 1/2-game lead in the National League's Central Division when second-place Pittsburgh was beaten in Philadelphia.

Reds pool bats, use all at once. CIN 9, STL 5.

Devin Mesoraco reached into his bag of 2010 Joey Votto tricks and blasted the Cincinnati Reds past the St. Louis Cardinals this evening, doing so with a double dinger, three runs scored, three ribbies, a double, two walks, a partridge in a pear tree, and a bag of flaming Oreos to boot. Mes has done his best to continue the torrid pace he set after the DL stint that started his season, and it's looking more and more like he can be the righty thumper in the middle of the Reds' order that they so desperately sought for the last handful of years.

Is Reds' best plan to trade starting pitching?

The conventional wisdom is the Reds need to trade starting pitching for the hitting. They are, after all, third last in the National League in runs.

Wacha faces Reds aiming to build Cards' division lead

The Cardinals are making what has become their annual September push toward the postseason, but the Reds, who are trying to avoid their worst second half in a non-strike season since 1933, will be looking to play spoiler as the two teams meet for the second game of a four-game set at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday night. "We want to finish the season a lot stronger than we've played the second half," said Reds manager Bryan Price, whose club is 16-33 since the All-Star break, needing 10 wins in its final 18 games to avoid the dubious distinction.
