Sep 28, 2018

It's time for the Cincinnati Reds to get serious. That's the theme as Chad Dotson and Jason Linden discussed the end of the 2018 season and what the Reds need to do this winter to prove that they are serious about winning. That means acquiring the right pitchers, hiring the right manager, and showing an impatient fan base that they are willing to go "all-in."

Jason also makes a comment at the end of this podcast that ensures he'll never be invited back to participate.

Chad Dotson and Doug Gray (of RedsMinorLeagues.com) got together this week to discuss where Nick Senzel and Hunter Greene stand after frustrating seasons for the Reds' top two prospects. They also talked about which Cincinnati prospects are the most valuable in trade discussions over the upcoming winter, and Doug reveals his Reds minor league players of the year.

Sep 14, 2018

The Reds are moving their top prospect, Nick Senzel, to the outfield? Chad Dotson and Jason Linden explore the possibilities with that move. Then they checked in on Joey Votto, and tried to put his career in historical context.

After answering a listener question (send your questions in mp3 format to chaddotson AT redlegnation DOT com, and we'll try to answer it on a future podcast), Chad and Jason muse over whether the Reds have lost an entire generation of fans by putting losing teams on the field for 17 of the last 22 seasons, and what that means for the Cincinnati community.

Sep 7, 2018

Chad Dotson and Bill Lack decided to identify the positives from the 2018 Cincinnati Reds season, and there are some, if you can believe it!

Unfortunately, they also addressed the ongoing Homer Bailey saga...plus a retrospective on the incredible life lived by Burt Reynolds.

Aug 31, 2018

Chad Dotson and Bill Lack are back again for a rousing discussion of all things Cincinnati Reds. The discussion begins with the Reds' failure to trade Matt Harvey, then somehow veers into a discussion of the greatness of Joe Morgan before returning to the topic of whether the Reds can be a playoff team in 2019.

Finally, we answered this: "What's wrong with Joey Votto?"

Aug 23, 2018

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden got together again this week to discuss a fun weekend at the ballyard, where they got a chance to talk with some Cincinnati Reds front-office types. The conversation centered around the necessary elements to make the Reds a contending team next year, and the consequences if the Reds fail to go all-in.

There best part, however, was the rousing discussion about "Player's Weekend," with Jason grading all the Reds nicknames.

Aug 17, 2018

Chad Dotson was joined by Jason Linden again this week for a fun episode of Redleg Nation Radio. We began by discussing current news, answered a few <a href="http://twitter.com/redlegradio">Twitter</a> questions, then asked whether ownership was meddling too much in baseball operations. Short answer: Yes.

We were also joined this week by Jeff Fassero, the pitching coach for Cincinnati's Triple-A affiliate in Louisville. His comments on Robert Stephenson were extremely interesting, and confirmed some of the things we had long suspected. You aren't going to want to miss what he had to say. Fassero also had some illuminating comments on Cody Reed and Brandon Finnegan, among others.

Chad Dotson and Bill Lack are back for Bill's 101st appearance on the Redleg Nation Radio podcast and, once again, they have entirely too much fun. This week's discussion: Robert Stephenson's hard head collides with the new "Winning Culture" of the Cincinnati Reds.

Aug 4, 2018

As Chad Dotson and Jason Linden discussed the lack of activity at the trade deadline for the Cincinnati Reds, they discovered that Reds uber-prospect Hunter Greene was injured and is out for the season. It's not Chad's fault!

Lots of fun on this week's episode. Enjoy!

Aug 3, 2018

More than four years ago, Jesse Winker -- then a raw prospect in the Cincinnati Reds minor league system -- joined us for episode 104 of the Redleg Nation Radio podcast. It's a fascinating interview with a kid who was finding his way on the road to the major leagues.

Now that Winker has established himself on the big league scene, we thought you might a Redleg Nation Radio Rewind. (Episode originally aired on February 20, 2014.)

Reds broadcaster Chris Welsh is back on RNR! Bill Lack and Welsh engaged in a rousing discussion of where the Cincinnati Reds stand after a rollercoaster first half.

This is Welsh's ninth appearance on Redleg Nation Radio...and Bill's 99th!

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden got together for a far-reaching discussion of the Cincinnati Reds this week. With the Reds playing well into the All-Star break, and with the trade deadline looming, it's time for some big decisions. Chad and Jason have all the answers.

All of them.

Chad Dotson and Bill Lack are together again, discussing all the news surrounding the Cincinnati Reds. The team gets three All-Stars! What will they do at the trade deadline? Does the front office know what they're doing? And what's the deal with the recent announcement that Homer Bailey will be rejoining the rotation soon?

 Chad Dotson and Jason Linden discuss the biggest surprise of the 2018 Reds season -- a player who just might end up being a Hall of Famer, according to Jason. This episode is a thrill-packed, exciting look at a Cincinnati Reds season that has become fun all of a sudden.

Jun 29, 2018

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden got together again this week for a rousing discussion of everything surrounding Cincinnati Reds baseball. First, the guys discussed the fact that the Reds are pretty much the best team in baseball right now. Next, it was an analysis of the current demand among some Reds fans (and writers) to sign interim manager Jim Riggleman to a full-time contract. Finally, a discussion of whether Scott Schebler should be the everyday center fielder.

Plus, there's a lot of other nonsense, the same stuff you have come to expect from Redleg Nation Radio.

Jun 24, 2018

We already recorded one podcast this week -- a really fun episode in which Bill Lack and Chad Dotson solved all the problems facing the Reds. (And it must have worked, since they haven't lost since.) You should give that one a listen.

Given the latest news about Nick Senzel's injury, however, Jason Linden and Chad got together for a short Emergency Edition of the Redleg Nation Radio podcast. Enjoy!

Bill Lack joined Chad Dotson this week to discuss the suddenly resurgent Cincinnati Reds, and dive into seven easy steps to ensure that the Reds are contenders in 2019. Is the Cincinnati front office listening?

On this week's episode, Chad Dotson had a great conversation with author John Erardi about his latest book, "Tony Perez: From Cuba to Cooperstown." It's a fantastic read, and our conversation was a lot of fun as we dug into Perez' life and career and much more.

You can purchase the book at all area bookstores, and online at all the usual outlets. We can't recommend this book more highly.

John will be signing the book at Price Hill Chili on June 15 at 5:00 pm, and at Findlay Market on June 16 at 11:00 am. Go see John, pick up a book, and tell him that Redleg Nation says hello.

On this week's episode, Chad Dotson and Doug Gray and are talking about the newest Reds, selected by Cincinnati in this week's MLB Draft. From Jonathan India, to potential UVa commits, to a couple of kids named Josiah, we break down everything you need to know about this year's draft class.

Of course, we had to start the podcast with some discussion about the current big league Reds. And Chad gave a little love to the podcast listeners who showed up at our recent book signing.

Jun 1, 2018

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden are talking about the Reds again this week, and Jason has a request: Let's all get together and vote Joey Votto into the All-Star Game this year. Good idea, right?

The guys also discuss the completely absurd decision by the Cincinnati Reds to bench young Jesse Winker in favor of a guy who has no chance of contributing to the next good Reds team. What is going on in the Queen City?

May 24, 2018

Chad Dotson was joined by Jason Linden again this week, and Jason had a bone to pick. But before that conversation, the guys discussed the promises made by Reds owner Bob Castellini when he purchased the franchise, and whether the ownership group had delivered on those pledges.

The discussion then turned to whether the Reds will be in a position to live up to their promises any time soon...plus a healthy dose of Scooter Gennett talk!

May 19, 2018

Chad Dotson was joined by Doug Gray (RedsMinorLeagues.com) for an optimistic and ebullient episode of Redleg Nation Radio, as the guys reflected on the fact that the Reds actually won 7 out of 9 games, including a beautiful West Coast road trip. Seriously, this is a thing that actually happened.

Chad and Doug also discussed what the Reds should do with Homer Bailey and Robert Stephenson, and whether interim manager Jim Riggleman should get the credit for Cincinnati's recent run of good baseball. Finally, Chad had a quick movie review for everyone.
