PLAYERS: Joey Votto
TEAMS: Cincinnati Reds
The Reds took over first in the NL Central after winning 6 of their last 7 games. Joey Votto's bat is heating up and the past couple of games he's added a couple of home runs to go with his on-base percentage which is the second highest in the league. Though opponents limit offerings to Votto, he continues to find way to help the Reds win.

Reds Win in 13

The Reds and Marlins played a 13-inning contest yesterday with the Reds coming out the winning 3-2. Joey Votto plated both of their runs in regulation but the Marlins refused to let him deliver the game-winner and intentionally walked him before Shin-Sin Choo scored on Brandon Phillips’s sac fly. Zach Cozart entered the game with a hot bat but left with a hand injury after going 0-6.

Anatomy of Brandon Phillips, RBI Machine

As Jeff Sullivan just pointed out, Shin-Soo Choo leads the majors in on base percentage, thanks to his willingness to endure pain for his team’s gain. #2 in the majors in OBP is teammate Joey Votto, Cincinnati’s star first baseman. The Reds acquired Choo to boost the top of their batting order, and in the first three weeks of the season, he has teamed with Votto to create havoc...

Q&A: Bryan Price, Reds Pitching Coach

Bryan Price doesn’t have the blueprint for keeping pitchers healthy and maximizing their talent. The Cincinnati Reds pitching coach admits as much. What he has is a recent track record that suggests he’s good at both. Reds pitchers led the National League in ERA last year and ranked second in strikeouts-to-walk ratio. They also avoided the disabled list, with five pitchers combining...

Shin-Soo Choo: Human Bruise

You like factoids, so go ahead and choose your factoid. Shin-Soo Choo has already been hit by nine pitches. Shin-Soo Choo’s hit-by-pitch total is more than twice as high as that of the current runner-up. Shin-Soo Choo has accounted for 5.2% of the league’s hit-by-pitches while accounting for 0.4% of the league’s plate appearances. No non-Reds team in baseball has been hit by...

S@!t Dusty Baker Says

Dusty Baker was the Cubs’ manager once upon a time and almost got them to the World Series in 2003 (stupid Marlins), one year after almost winning it all in San Francisco in 2002 (boy was that annoying, stupid Angels).  A lot of fans are still reasonably upset with him for certain decisions that may have not only doomed the Cubs’ championship hopes, but also the careers of some...
