Steve Mancuso is a lifelong Reds fan who was a teenager 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. Steve went to Princeton High School (same as Josh Harrison and near Middletown High School where Kyle Schwarber went) and the University of Kentucky for college. He earned a Masters Degree in Economics at the University of Michigan and lived in Ann Arbor for nearly 20 years. He’s been back in the Cincinnati area for more than 10 years. Follow him on Twitter @spmancuso where 99.9% of his tweets are about the Reds.

 

Matt Wilkes got hooked on Reds baseball after attending his first game in Cinergy Field at 6 years old, and he hasn’t looked back. As a kid, he was often found imitating his favorite players — Ken Griffey Jr., Adam Dunn, Sean Casey, and Austin Kearns — in the backyard. When he finally went inside, he was leading the Reds to 162-0 seasons in MVP Baseball 2005 or keeping stats for whatever game was on TV. He started writing about baseball in 2014 and has become fascinated by analytics and all the new data in the game. Matt is also a graduate of The Ohio State University and currently lives in Columbus. Follow him on Twitter at @_MattWilkes.

 Steffen Taudal has been a huge Reds fan since watching his very first baseball game during the 2018 season. Despite the Reds finishing 5th in the NL Central for the fourth season in a row, he found himself drawn to the team’s storied past and infinitely likable players such as Eugenio Suárez and Joey Votto. Since then, his love of baseball has led to a deep interest in the game’s analytics and advanced statistics. Steffen is from Denmark and recently graduated from Aarhus University.
