Let’s start this post off by saying thank you from all of the writers here at Redleg Nation. That you decide to spend some of your time reading our words means a lot to us – even if sometimes you tell us that we are crazy for what we write.
Speaking of what we write, let’s take a look back at the 10 most read articles of the 2018 calendar year:
- Trade Assessment: A confident Reds front office team with bigger moves ahead
- Recap: Reds sweet 4-game series in LA, win sixth consecutive game!
- The Reds Real Culture Problem
- The Reds front office must finish the rebuild
- The Time of Nick: Reds and service time
- Reds-Dodgers in blockbuster trade: Kemp, Puig, Wood, Bailey involved
- Reports: Reds have interviewed Girardi, will add Ausmus, Bell, and more
- Ownership, wealth and Reds payroll
- The Reds have a baseball unicorn, so why aren’t they developing the next Shohei Ohtani?
- Reds trade Adam Duvall to the Braves for three players with MLB experience
Some of these articles make sense that they would be among the most read. Trades and rumors, dealing with the seemingly confusion in the front office in the first half of 2018 – but the recap of a sweep of the Dodgers in May? Reds fans must have been feeling great to take four from their former division rivals at the time. As Chad Dotson put it in the article, the Reds continue to be undefeated in the Matt Harvey era (though Luis Castillo pitched that final game).
Keeping the conversation going
There were just over 40,000 comments left at Redleg Nation in 2018. This is how we imagine things went throughout the year:
And maybe a little bit of this during a few of the game threads…..
Writing ALL of the words
There were just over 900 posts/articles written on the pages of Redleg Nation during 2018. That’s a whole lot of words from the crew. Some of the words were better than others. Some made us feel better than others, too. Not sure how many words there were, but it’s definitely a number that I don’t want to count to.
