CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
The Cincinnati Reds have been named the 2012 organization of the year by Baseball America.
According to J.J. Cooper, writer for Baseball America, the Reds have been named organization of the year due to the organization's ability to build a winner through scouting and player development as well as the team's sustainable success in recent years.
After missing the playoffs for 14 straight seasons, the Reds have risen from the depths of the NL Central. The team has made playoff appearances in two out of their last three seasons and continue to show promise for the future.
Throughout the 2012 season the Reds won 97 games, the most wins by the club since the Big Red Machine in 1975.
Their success can be largely attributed to the team's stellar bullpen. Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman, two homegrown Reds, received National League Cy Young Award votes this year. Homer Bailey threw a no-hitter, the club's first since Tom Browning in 1988.
"Being a small market, we have to rely on our scouting and player development," said Reds' general manager Walt Jocketty. "We supplement it through trades and free agency. I feel we've been able to change the mindset. We're building to contend every year."
Jocketty doesn't face many difficult decisions this offseason. After signing Votto and second baseman Brandon Phillips to long-term extensions in 2012, the only holes heading into the offseason are in left field and possibly closer if the club decides to move Chapman to the rotation. If Chapman does move to the rotation, the club is facing the desirable problem of having six big league starters vying for five spots
The biggest need is for a leadoff hitter, but the team's best prospect, center fielder Billy Hamilton, is arguably the best leadoff prospect in the game. He set a professional baseball record with 155 stolen bases in 2012.For many Reds fans, this is as close to the glory years as they have ever seen, even without a playoff series win. If you're a Reds fan under the age of 45, the Big Red Machine is something you read about, not something you likely remember firsthand. If you're a Reds fan under the age of 30, the heroics of Jose Rijo, Barry Larkin and the 1990 World Series champions are not even a memory.
