Cincinnati Reds: The Good and Bad So Far

Roughly a quarter of the way through the 2015 MLB season, here are a few takeaways for the Cincinnati Reds.

The Best 40 Games of Zack Cozart

It probably doesn’t shock you to learn that the three best hitting Reds so far this year all play the infield. Based on what you know about the Reds, it’s only slightly shocking to learn that Jay Bruce isn’t in the team’s top three in wRC+, but Todd Frazier and Joey Votto are obviously right […]

Joey Votto: NL Comeback Player Of The Year

Joey Votto will win the National League Comeback Player of the Year award in 2015. Confident, you say? Crazy? While there may be many who disagree, there is a strong argument to this point in the season to state at this moment Votto will win the award.

Joey Votto is Just Fine

It’s unbelievable that I am about to tell you about how Joey Votto, 31, needs a bounce back season. That’s right, the very same guy who in eight seasons holds a slash line of .310/.417/.533. Whose walk and strikeout rates are strikingly similar, whose patience at the plate is almost unrivaled, and who is undoubtedly the toughest out in a Cincinnati Reds lineup comprised of...

Apparently, the Reds are screwed if Joey Votto leads the league in OBP

Long-time Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman is a legend. Yet, this quote about Reds first baseman Joey Votto is…well, it’s downright silly, if we’re being blunt here. "if this guy comes back and is content to lead the lead in OBP again, then this team is in deep trouble,"-Marty on Votto #Reds @700wl — Lance McAlister (@LanceMcAlister) February 13, 2015 Only...

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto was on Intentional Talk today before the Reds-Cardinals game, and he did his interview with Kevin Millar and Chris Rose dressed like a Mountie, hitting every Canadian stereotype you can imagine. This is pretty amazing.
