UPDATE:

Elder-Beerman: What’s next for Bon Ton-owned stores?

Great debate: Is it the Reds, or is GABP a launching pad?


This isn’t going to be fun, but with Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman and Brian Goodwin going deep for the Nationals Monday at Great American Park, the Reds continued on their path to infamy. Here’s a hint what this talking point is about:

So what in the world is going on?

The Reds entered the game having surrendered 156 home runs this season, ahead of the pace of last season when Cincinnati pitchers gave up a MLB-record 258 long balls. 

Sure, GABP qualifies as one of the great launching pads in the game, but isn’t this more than enough said?

Harper and Zimmerman are due up in mere minutes in the top of the seventh inning.

Chad Johnson impersonator jailed; Ocho Cinco may help "mentor” the man

Maybe we’d all like to be Chad Johnson for a day, but if you were actually going to pretend to be the former Bengals wide receiver, then maybe you should look a little more like him than the guy who got busted for trying to buy more than $18,000 worth of stuff while posing as Johnson. According to the Aspen (Colo.) Daily News Online: Mervin Cabe...

Sports Today: The bigger picture from Spielman vs. Ohio State

Ohio State loves its brand more than anything.  If you spend any time on campus in Columbus, that’s pretty clear.  They care about the athletes, some students and of course making money for the hospital, but nothing trumps The Ohio State University (TM).  And that appears to have gotten them in trouble again.  The fan reaction...

Reds’ Cozart on a tear as trade deadline nears

Eleven days remain until the Major League Baseball trade deadline. Zack Cozart is still the Cincinnati Reds shortstop. The question is: will he be a Red at 4 p.m. on July 31?  Cozart continues to perform as he has all season. The uncertainty hasn’t been a distraction. He went 4-for-6 with a home run, double and two RBIs on Wednesday in a ...
