Chad Dotson and Doug Gray got together again to discuss the impossible reality that Joey Votto -- who is a perfect baseball player -- did not win a single major award this season. The guys also talked about the one Red that did win an award, then dove headfirst into some of the big decisions that the Reds will have to make over the next week.

Also, Doug tells us which Reds minor leaguer "will be better than Willie Mays."

Even better, Chad and Doug offered up their latest movie reviews, featuring an engaging documentary and a hilarious comedy.

Chad Dotson was joined this week by C. Trent Rosecrans, one of the Reds beat writers for the Cincinnati Enquirer, to discuss Rosecrans' "Great American Dream" podcast. The podcast follows Reds prospect Shed Long on his path to the big leagues, and includes stories and memories from many former minor leaguers, including Joey Votto and Ken Griffey Jr.

Chad and Trent also discussed the current state of the Reds' rebuild, and how far the team is from being competitive.

Chad Dotson and Doug Gray got together again this week to talk about the Cincinnati Reds. How is it possible that they had so much fun talking about a team that has lost about a million games over the last two seasons?

Chad and Doug began by discussing the recent comments of Reds GM Dick Williams about the Eugenio Suarez/Nick Senzel logjam, then moved on to other pressing Reds-related topics, such as this question: Which of the Reds starting pitchers (age 25 or younger) do you expect to take the biggest step forward in 2018?

Finally, each has a short movie review for you, and the discussion of an actor who may end up being a (very) surprising Oscar nominee.

Do you like the Cincinnati Reds? Do you like podcasts? Well, we have a treat in store for you! It's a podcast...about the Cincinnati Reds!

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden got together again this week, and they tried to wrap up the 2017 Reds season without a single tear being shed. It was a difficult task, but these are the sacrifices we make for you, the devoted listeners of <em>Redleg Nation Radio</em>. We also spent a little while admiring Joey Votto's age-33 season, because Joey Votto is the bestest.

Sep 29, 2017

Chad Dotson and Doug Gray got together to put a bow on the 2017 season and, as usually happens when they talk about the Cincinnati Reds, Chad made some ridiculous predictions. The guys began by discussing where Jesse Winker fits into the Reds outfield in 2018. After that, it was a rousing discussion about the positive aspects of a miserable season, and how those positives are an indication that the Reds will be competitive next year.

Chad Dotson and Bill Lack get together once again for another rousing discussion of Cincinnati Reds baseball.

Sep 16, 2017

 

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden kick off this week's podcast by discussing the Reds' 14th losing season in the last 17 years. After they decided that was no fun, they talked about the surprisingly realistic possibility that the Cincinnati Reds will have an above-average pitching staff in 2018. Rousing discussions of Scooter Gennett, next year's outfield rotation, and more about Bryan Price followed.

Sep 9, 2017

Chad Dotson and Doug Gray got together to discuss the news that Bryan Price will return to manage the Cincinnati Reds in 2018. Good idea? Bad idea? You'll have to listen to find out the answer.

The guys also discussed the marvelous rookie season of Luis Castillo, and looked at the progress made by a bunch of young Reds pitchers in 2018. Plus, what to make of the Billy Hamilton/Phillip Ervin centerfield situation, and they even tossed in a couple of movie reviews (Wind River, The Big Sick).

Chad Dotson was joined this week by Reggie Sanders, who enjoyed an 8-year career as the All-Star right fielder of the Cincinnati Reds in the 1990s. Reggie reminisced on his days with the Reds -- his first professional organization -- the 1995 Central Division championship season, and why Cincinnati remains special to him and his family.

Aug 26, 2017

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden got together again this week to discuss everything about the ol' Cincinnati Reds. The guys began by diving into all the similarities between young Eugenio Suarez and young Joey Votto, then discussed and analyzed this week's announcement of the six candidates for the Reds Hall of Fame. They finished up by getting a little excited over some young Reds pitchers. Plus, Jason played all kinds of games with Chad this episode.

Aug 18, 2017

Chad Dotson was joined by Doug Gray again this week, and the topic of the show was whether Phillip Ervin -- who has returned to the big leagues with a vengeance this week -- has a chance to unseat Billy Hamilton as the starting center fielder for the Cincinnati Reds. The guys also discussed the incredible season we're witnessing from Joey Votto, and whether the Reds should bring back Zack Cozart in 2018.

Aug 11, 2017

Chad Dotson was joined by Doug Gray for another rousing discussion of Reds prospects, from Triple-A down to the rookie league. Among the burning questions were: Is Nick Senzel ready now and, if so, where does he play? Are the Reds making a mistake in how they are handling phenom #1 pick Hunter Greene? Should the Reds call up Tyler Mahle this September? Plus, we did a deep dive into the slew of Reds pitching prospects to see if we learned anything this year.

The guys also talked about the proposed lineup for 2018 and beyond, and that's a conversation that can cause a Reds fan to be optimistic. Things are looking pretty good on that front.

Aug 4, 2017

We're back with another episode of Redleg Nation Radio, featuring Chad Dotson and Jason Linden talking about the current state of the Reds. The first question answered: which of the current pitchers can the Reds count on to be members of the 2017 rotation? Jason has a couple of surprising answers to that question, while Chad tried to keep the discussion rational. (Johnny Cueto?)

Jul 14, 2017

This was a fun one. Chad Dotson was joined this week by Joe Oliver. You will all remember Oliver as a longtime catcher for the Cincinnati Reds, and the hero of Game 2 of the 1990 World Series, when he collected a legendary walk-off hit to give the Reds a 2-0 advantage over the Oakland Athletics. In this episode, Oliver recalls his memories of that team and his time in Cincinnati, and gets us up-to-date on his current duties as a minor league manager on the path back to the big leagues.

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden get together again this week to discuss the resurgent Reds, a newly-adequate starting rotation, and Sal Romano's return to the big leagues. Plus, an admiring discussion of Cincinnati's two National League All-Stars, Zack Cozart and Joey Votto.

Finally, we answered all your questions on every topic, Reds-related and otherwise. Some of the questions were, ummmm...interesting.

Jun 30, 2017

Chad Dotson and Bill Lack are back on <em>Redleg Nation Radio</em> for another fun episode. The guys began by talking about Homer Bailey, a discussion that morphed into a look at all the young pitching talent in the Cincinnati Reds organization. Other questions answered:

--Who should be leading off?
--How can the Reds get Jesse Winker more at-bats?
--Should the Redlegs send Jose Peraza to Triple-A?
--Which Reds are going to make the National League All-Star team?

Jun 24, 2017

Chad Dotson and Jason Linden are back again for another scintillating episode of Redleg Nation Radio. The guys keep trying to be optimistic, but the Reds continue to beat them down. After losing 12 of 13, Chad and Jason talk about the dumpster fire that is the Reds starting rotation, and analyze whether there is any hope for a turnaround in the near future. On a more positive note, they discuss a Reds offense that, somehow, caused Jason to compare the 2017 Reds to the Big Red Machine. Believe it or not!

Everything you need to know about Cincinnati's 2017 draft class! Chad Dotson was joined this week by Doug Gray of RedsMinorLeagues.com for an in-depth discussion of this week's MLB Draft. The guys looked at the elite potential of first-rounder (and Sports Illustrated cover boy) Hunter Greene and the cool story behind #2 pick Jeter Downs. Plus, an examination of all the fantastic names drafted by the Reds, and Chad laments the fact that GM Dick Williams didn't select a single Virginia Cavalier this year.

Jun 9, 2017

On the heels of one of the most exciting weeks the Reds have enjoyed in recent years, Chad Dotson and Jason Linden had a lot to discuss on the most recent episode of Redleg Nation Radio. Scooter Gennett's 4-HR heroics were the highlight of the week, but a big sweep of the hated Cardinals propelled the Reds ever closer to first place. Are you not entertained?

To begin today's podcast, Chad Dotson talked about the glorious return of Devin Mesoraco, then went on a little rant about Brandon Phillips and his comments upon returning to Cincinnati for the first time. In addition, Chad was joined by Tom Van Riper, author of Cincinnati Red and Dodger Blue, a new book that looks at the Reds-Dodgers rivalry of the 1970s and 80s.

Tom will be signing his book at the Barnes and Noble in Newport, KY on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at noon; he'll also be at the Waterstone B&N at 3pm that day. Go meet Tom and tell him Redleg Nation sent you.
