While we don’t know the exact terms of the deal, we know its a big extension for a ton of money.
The good: The Reds will have what is likely to be one of the 5 best players in baseball over the next 5 years locked up.
The bad: The Reds may be hamstrung in the last 4 years of the deal by a former superstar taking up a ton of payroll for solid, but not superstar like performance...
Move over Honey Nut Cheerios, there's a new honey nut cereal in town...or at least in the region of southern Ohio. Cereal lovers, and fans of the Reds slugger alike, can pick-up a box of this limited edition item at any Kroger store in the greater Cincinnati/Dayton area. This vitamin-infused food is made by PLB Sports and packaged in a majestic 14-ounce box of whole-grain...
The Cincinnati Reds are discussing a contract extension with first baseman Joey Votto, whose deal runs through the 2013 season.
Votto declined to say how close the sides were to an agreement on Monday, referring questions to general manager Walt Jocketty, who wasn't immediately available.
Votto agreed to a three-year, $38 million deal on Jan. 15, 2011 that avoided salary arbitration...
The Cincinnati Reds are about to make their biggest news since trading for Ken Griffey Jr. in 2000.
First baseman Joey Votto confirmed to the Cincinnati Enquirer on Monday that he is close to signing a long-term contract extension with the team.
Terms of the deal, which was first reported by MLBTradeRumors.com, are not known.
Votto, 28, is signed for $9.5 million this season and...
The Cincinnati Reds agreed to terms with first baseman Joey Votto to a 10-year, $225 million contract.
Votto becomes the third first baseman this year to sign a $200 million contract, joining Albert Pujols (10 years, $254 million) and Prince Fielder (9 years, $213 million).
The deal is the fourth-richest in league history and will keep Votto with Cincinnati through the 2023 season...
The Reds locked up Joey Votto today to a 10-year, $225 million dollar contract. It’s the largest contract in Cincinnati baseball history. Hell, it’s the largest contract in Cincinnati sports history.
I’m shocked by this, but extremely pleased. At the end of the day, I think Votto is going to age well and be extremely productive over the course of the next decade. It almost...
Last month we brought you the news of 2011 American League Cy Young and MVP award winner Justin Verlander endorsing Fastball Flakes cereal. 2010 National League MVP, 2011 Gold Glove Winner, and two-time All-Star first baseman for the Cincinnati Reds Joey Votto has joined the club. Kroger and the Cincinnati Reds are longtime [...]
Cincinnati Reds slugger Joey Votto has quickly become one of the best all-around first baseman in baseball. Now Votto can also say he is one of the most well-paid. The Reds has moved to retain their centerpiece long term by signing Votto to a 10-year, $225 million extension. Votto’s deal financially puts him in line with [...]
There’s a party going on right here. A celebration to last throughout the years (2023 to be exact).
So bring your good times and your laughter too, we’re gonna celebrate your party with you.
Come on now, cel-e-bra-tion. Let’s all celebrate and have a good time.
(Fast-forward a bit…)
Cel-e-brate good times, c’mon! Let’s celebrate.
Cel-e-brate good times, c’mon...
With Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder cashing in on big pay days this offseason, it became abundantly clear that Reds first baseman Joey Votto could eventually do the same. Votto is under contract through 2013 as a result of an extension he signed last winter, but the Reds clearly want to make sure the two-time All-Star stays put for the foreseeable future. That's why the Reds...
The country might be in dire economic shape, but don’t tell that to the San Francisco Giants or the low market Cincinnati Reds who both set new benchmarks player compensation.
Lets start with Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain who is now the richest right-handed pitcher in baseball after he agreed to a five-year contract extension that will guarantee him $127.5 million dollars...
Am I missing something? Have the standards for valuing players changed that much, seemingly overnight?
Maybe, if you believe that the sale of the Dodgers for $2.15 billion significantly raised the value of all franchises, and that fat new local TV contracts await all 30 clubs.
But even if you give the Reds every benefit of the doubt -- and it takes an Anthony Davis-sized leap to...
The Cincinnati Reds and Walt Jocketty have been busy. First, they decided to trade Juan Francisco for Atlanta pitching prospect JJ Hoover. I don’t think anyone was happy with Francisco after showing up to camp over weight and failing to properly rehab his injury. Now the Reds have added another young strong arm to the minors that could help in the future.
Here is Hoover’s...
