JOEY VOTTO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cubs bats find Reds’ gaps: Chicago wins 12-8

A whole lotta base hits. More from Chicago. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto went 3-5 with a double and a dinger. His OPS is now an even .900. It’s good to have you back, Mr. Votto. Honorable mention is due to Eugenio Suarez for his 3-5 night with two solo home runs. Robert Stephenson had a relatively clean two innings, giving up 2H, 1ER with 0BB...

National Leaguers with something to prove in 2017

It has been said that playing with a chip on your shoulder is good, that it is a motivational tool that brings out the best in a ballplayer. And while there are a variety of different conditions that govern such players on every team, ranging from justifying the hype, carrying the load on a new ball club or resurrecting personal stock that has slipped, there are a great deal of talents...

The Thing Joey Votto Isn’t Good At

It might be surprising, but there’s one thing Joey Votto isn’t good at. Well, to be more precise, there’s one thing that Joey Votto doesn’t think he’s good at. He’s done a lot of work, and it looks like he’s good at it. When it comes to defense, though, he credits the work and not any natural ability. And then last year happened, so maybe he’s not so good at it, after...

The top 10 MLB left fielders headed into spring training 2017

While not having the proven depth of many other positions, there are still a number of dangerous bats that lineup in left field. All but one player that checks in on this top 10 list hit at least 20 home runs, and five connected for 30. That is a potent collection of power, especially considering that this is far from a one-trick pony position. It is also an area that is home to...

Joey Votto may be done trolling fans, gives one a souvenir baseball

Joey Votto has cultivated a reputation — especially this season — for not being particularly fan friendly at times. But it appears the Cincinnati Reds star first baseman may have turned over a new leaf, as he totally pulled a one-eighty Tuesday night by giving a fan a souvenir baseball and a high-five to boot. One of life's great unknowns: Is Joey Votto finished trolling?...

Report: Blue Jays, Reds discussed Votto trade last season

Former NL MVP Joey Votto has been a Cincinnati Red for his entire 10-season MLB career. But was he actually close to becoming a Toronto Blue Jay last season? According to a report by Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star on Monday, the Blue Jays and the Reds “were beginning serious discussions” at last year’s trade deadline about a Votto trade. However, talks were said to have...

WATCH: Joey Votto makes amends after run-in with fan

For the second time in a week, Joey Votto's behavior towards a fan came into question. Luckily this time the Cincinnati Reds first baseman tried to repair relations and was successful in doing so. Votto went into the stands to try making a catch with two outs in the top of the seventh of Tuesday's Reds-Cardinals game. Unfortunately Votto was not able to make the grab as he was somewhat...

Did Joey Votto reject kid who asked for his batting gloves?

Joey Votto’s heel turn continued Wednesday night at AT&T Park. The Cincinnati Reds first baseman has messed with fans a few times this season, earning himself a reputation as one of Major League Baseball’s biggest villains. He apparently added to that reputation during the finale of the Reds’ three-game series against the San Francisco Giants by refusing to give in to...

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. The fact that the paper airplane was tossed from the upper deck in left field — in foul territory no less — should have elicited a...

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. ...
