Matt Wilkes and I have started Reds Content Plus (RC+) a new site for hard-core Reds fans.

Matt and I want to be clear that we are not leaving Redleg Nation. Our commitment to the great community here that Chad, and now Doug, has cultivated remains the same as ever. Redleg Nation’s everyday content is consistent, diverse and informative. The civil back-and-forth of the comment section is unique and valuable. We’ll continue to contribute as always.

Our new site will build on what you find here. The emphasis at RC+ will be using Statcast and other new, advanced data for in-depth analysis of player performance, David Bell’s strategies and front office decisions. RC+ will help you make sense of what’s going right and what’s going wrong with our favorite team. Matt’s focus will be on pitching, Matt Habel will tackle team and individual defense, I’ll handle the hitting. You’ll also hear an occasional podcast from Wes Jenkins.

RC+ is a Patreon site, which means there are small monthly fees to access different kinds of content. You can cancel whenever you want and five months gets you through the baseball season.

Matt and I look forward to the challenge of tackling the new information about the Reds that’s out there and analyzing it in a way that’s clear and coherent. We would appreciate your support.

Reds Content Plus is advanced analysis about Cincinnati Reds baseball, paired with smart and respectful discussion.

Please take a look at what RC+ has to offer. It may surprise and excite you.

— Steve and Matt

    Thanks, Steve. If it is like what you guys have done here, it will be quality and I will learn a lot. I will check it out.

    Btw: I tried to check it out and it’s still locked.

    Sorry to be an agnostic, but all of this data info ruins the game. What are you advancing here? Would Aaron have hit 2000 homers if he had your info? Would the Big Red Machine have won ten World Series if they simply knew how to shift the defense on each player? Where is all this heading? Please, let’s not turn this into a computer game for robots! Sorry!

    Steve and Matt – I’ve learned a lot from your more analytical perspective on the Reds and baseball here at RLN and look forward to investigating the new site. I have no doubt it will be well executed, and hope it’s a great success.

    I’m puzzled by how a reduced amount of comments leads to the disappearance of civility. As a long, long-time Reds fan, the civility and knowledgeable comments overall on Redleg Nation is one of the primary reasons I tune in everyday. I wish Matt and Steve success with their new blog.
