Write for Reds Content Plus!

It’s that time of year again. We’re interested in taking on new writers to join our terrific RC+ staff for the 2021 Reds season. In particular, we’re looking for help with our game recaps once or twice a week. You would also be free to pitch other article ideas and write them if approved.

If you’re a regular reader here, you know what we’re about. RC+ emphasizes in-depth and original statistical analysis of the Reds and baseball more broadly. Every post does not have to be stat-centric. For example, we’ve published several well researched historical articles about the Reds. We also follow and write about the team’s roster, payroll budget and front office. That said, if you think “WAR” is a four-letter word, that pitcher Wins and RBIs are good ways to evaluate players, we probably aren’t a great fit for you. 

The ideal RC+ candidate(s) would:

  • Have in-depth knowledge about the Cincinnati Reds
  • Have working familiarity with FanGraphs, Baseball-Reference and Baseball Savant
  • Be available to help with our game recaps once or twice a week 
  • Commit to writing from March-September 2021 (we’re willing to work with your schedule, of course)

Please note these site guidelines: We don’t tolerate personal attacks. That includes on other writers, commenters, Reds players, managers, coaches, front office or ownership. We don’t permit profanity or vulgarity. We want parents of young Reds fans to feel comfortable allowing their kids to read our site, including the comments sections.

In short: Be interesting, original and civil.

If you’re interested in writing about the 2021 season for Reds Content Plus, please let us know at We’ll follow up with an application.


Matt and Steve

Steve Mancuso is a lifelong Reds fan who grew up during the Big Red Machine era. He’s been writing about the Reds for more than ten years. Steve’s fondest memories about the Reds include attending a couple 1975 World Series games, being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter and going nuts for Jay Bruce at Clinchmas. Steve was also at all three games of the 2012 NLDS, but it’s too soon to talk about that.
