A Note from the Editor about Redlegs Review


Dear Redlegs Review readers,

I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has supported the blog by reading the site's content, following and interacting with us on social media, voting in poll questions, putting your thoughts in the comments section and more. It has truly been a great experience covering and following Reds baseball with you guys since the site took off in February 2011.

With that being said, I wish to inform you all that change is coming to the RR you have grown accustomed to. I have recently accepted a new job position that will demand far greater time and effort from me and will no longer be able to update the blog on a daily basis. I know some of you probably navigate your way to RR each day in search of news and fresh content about the Reds. So I apologize for not being able to continue providing regular updates.

With that said, I have no intention of shutting Redlegs Review down completely, as it will stay in its current state, but just in a reduced manner. My hope is to still be able to post once or twice a week with my thoughts and opinions on the state of Reds baseball. And of course our friend Dan Howard will continue providing his weekly column on the site as well. So be sure to check back from time-to-time.

If you're looking to stay in the know about all things Reds, rest easy knowing that there are several Reds fan sites that provide fresh content each day. Redleg Nation (redlegnation.com), Red Reporter (www.redreporter.com), and Blog Red Machine (blogredmachine.com) each are great sources of news, game recaps, and banter about the Reds. And of course C. Trent Rosecrans and John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, as well as Mark Sheldon of MLB.com provide good insight on the team as beat writers too. I encourage you guys to check out their stuff if you haven't already.

Before I end this letter, I wanted to end on a bright note by providing some links to some of the most popular and interesting posts in the history of the blog. In the following links, you will find the story of myself and a friend spending a weekend with Brandon Phillips, the RR blog crew enjoying a behind-the-scenes look at a Reds game from 2012, an explanation of how Reds pitchers cost a local pizza chain lots of free pizza, the story on how legendary Reds beat writer Hal McCoy once offered free season tickets in exchange for transportation to games, and of course video of the inspirational story of honorary batboy Teddy Kremer as told by the folks at ESPN.

Again, thank you for all the support along the way, as it has been a fun ride.

As always, GO REDS!
