Joey Votto Is Still Pretty Good at Baseball

Last week, I wrote about the disproportionate impact a disastrous April can have on our perceptions of a player. The example I used then was Ken Giles, who has largely put an awful first month of the season behind him and returned to being a dominant reliever. Now seems like as good a time as any to talk about another player who struggled mightily in April: Joey Votto. As Owen...

Joey Votto booed by Dodgers fans for stomping paper airplane

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto drew the ire of the crowd at Dodger Stadium Tuesday after he aggressively stomped on a paper airplane that landed in the infield during the 7th inning of his team’s 8-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Joey Votto: I'd rather quit baseball than play poorly

Long one of the most consistent hitters in baseball, Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto had a terrible April. He hit just .229 and slugged just .313, tallying only three extra base hits. His famed on-base skills are still there, but Votto has not been getting hits. It turns out that for Votto, April was so bad that he’d rather retire than allow that to become the norm. ...

WATCH: Joey Votto has strange new routine between pitches

Joey Votto's newest quirk is a real head-scratcher. The Cincinnati Reds first baseman can be a little out there at times, and his new routine won’t do anything to dispute that notion. Votto unveiled the new in-at-bat routine over the weekend in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. In between each pitch, Votto puts his hands on his knees and rests his bat in between his legs...

WATCH: Joey Votto does his best LeBron James impression

The Cincinnati Reds faced off against the Cleveland Indians in a spring training game on Saturday, and Joey Votto opened the festivities by putting together his best LeBron James impersonation. Seriously, between the chalk and the mannerisms, he’s got it all down. Better yet, his team won 7-4. Of course, James has been in and out with the chalk toss since his return to the...

Joey Votto is back, and he’s still amazing

By Derek Harvey There is a subset of Cincinnati Reds fans, of which I’m told includes their announcers, that criticizes Joey Votto for not being aggressive enough. Joey Votto who was worth over 25 WAR from 2010-2013 (2014 was injury-shortened). The narrative is that Joey Votto doesn’t swing enough and when he’s more aggressive at the plate he’s a better player. He’s...
