Votto is slated to remain in Cincinnati
for the next decade
by: Chase Fitzgerald
All the talk before the season on how the Reds were going to go on without Joey Votto meant nothing on April 2nd when Joey Votto signed the longest deal in baseball history for 12 years and for the price of 251.5 million dollars to remain a Red for his entire (presumably) career. This may have been the single-happiest I’ve been from something to do with sports and I’m still in shock that we are lucky enough to have the greatest baseball player on the planet be with us for 12 more years. This allows the Reds to build around Votto with other great players and it is very nice to know that we’ll never have to worry about first base for years to come.
After getting over my initial excitement I started to worry. Votto probably won’t be the same player he is now when he is 38 yet we will be paying him 20+ million dollars (Debby Downer I know). But this year, Votto showed me something. A...

Shortstop is a position that the Reds recently had a bit of an interesting situation arise with as Walt Jocketty reportedly said that he would be open to trading incumbent Reds starting shortstop Zach Cozart or the guy waiting in the wings at AAA in Didi Gregorius. One of those two players should be manning shortstop for the Reds over the next several seasons.
The top shortstop prospect...

since 1999 came up short on Monday
Reds infielder Todd Frazier was among three finalists for National League Rookie of the Year honors, but ultimately finished third after the announcement was made on MLB Network Monday night. Washington Nationals 19-year old phenom Bryce Harper topped the voting after edging out second...
As the saying goes, if something isnt broken why even tinker with it, why take a single screwdriver to it?
Such would seem to be the case with Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. And yet the Reds seem intent upon removing the closer title from his name and changing it to starter.
Should they do it? Will they do it?

The Reds bullpen this season was just flat out nasty.They boasted the best ERA in baseball at 2.65 and also led the league in saves, fewest earned runs, and fewest homeruns allowed, which is just amazing if you consider that they are pitching at GABP most of the time. This was the best bullpen the Reds have had in a long time. Yes, even better...
