    joey votto getty

    Reds first baseman Joey Votto said in February that he wants Cincinnati baseball fans to get to know him better and that his workmanlike approach might have kept that from happening in his first several years with the club. If this is the real Joey Votto — dry-witted but goofy — we’d love to see more and more …

    Whitaker

    My friend Michele has a son named Whitaker who is into baseball. Really into baseball. Like, I can’t tell you how much he’s into baseball. He plays on a traveling team called the Central Ohio Saints. Go to that link. Of the two tall kids, he’s the one on the left. By the way: he’s 12,…

  13. Joey Votto thinks Billy Hamilton could be an MVP candidate if he learns to draw walks

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:45 PM EDT

    Billy Hamilton

    Billy Hamilton is already dealing with pressure, as he is taking over as the Reds’ center fielder and lead-off man at the age of 23. Many expect him to become the fourth player since the turn of the millennium to steal 70-plus bases, joining Jacoby Ellsbury (2009), Jose Reyes (2007), and Scott Podsednik (2004). He…

    Bovada released its player prop bets for the 2014 season on Wednesday, providing odds on the AL and NL MVP and Cy Young races, as well as MLB’s home run leader. Here’s a look at what I consider to be the best bets in each category. Please do note, though, all information here is for…

  15. Billy Hamilton is honing his bunting weapon

    Mar 7, 2014, 11:20 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Cincinnati Reds

    Billy Hamilton hit .368 in 22 plate appearances in September last season, but some in the know say that Hamilton will struggle to hit in the Majors. In his first season against Triple-A competition last season, Hamilton hit .256 with a .308 on-base percentage and a .343 slugging percentage. Hamilton’s signature has always been his…

    Joey Votto Getty

    John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer tweeted a link to an interesting video about Joey Votto earlier tonight. (If you can’t watch the video through Twitter, this link should work.) In the two minute-long video, Votto talks about how many Reds fans have the wrong idea about him. He attributes this to his workmanlike demeanor…

  17. Paul Daugherty is not happy with Aroldis Chapman

    Feb 11, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Cincinnati Reds

    Yesterday we linked the story about Aroldis Champan’s offseason in the wilderness. He’s having adjustment problems. He sleeps late. He seems aimless in the offseason. It was kind of sad, actually, and you do wonder about where his head is at. Paul Daugherty certainly wonders. He’s quite upset at the story — he even questions…

  18. Joey Votto creates foundation to help those suffering from PTSD

    Dec 6, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Joey Votto contributes to a good cause on the baseball field by getting on base nearly one out of every two times he comes to the plate, and hitting for power to boot. But now he’s contributing to a great cause off the field with the creation of the Joey Votto Foundation, aimed to support…

  19. Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler, and mouthwatering moves

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Opening monologue: How many players in baseball history have a name as incompatible as “Prince Fielder?” Crazy, right? It would be like Bud Harrelson being named “Crown Batter” or Randy Johnson being named “Elfin Junkballer,” or Alex Rodriguez being named “Innocent victim.” Am I right? And what’s the deal with all the questions they ask…

  20. The Tigers and Rangers trade is just as much about past mistakes as it is about current need

    Nov 21, 2013, 5:34 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    In case you missed the big news last night, the Tigers traded Prince Fielder to Texas for Ian Kinsler. Detroit is sending along around $30 million. The net result: the Tigers get Kinsler and about $70 million in salary relief, the Rangers get seven years of Fielder and a $138 million bill for his services.…

    The Pirates have their first NL MVP since 1992 after Andrew McCutchen received 28 of the 30 first-place votes on Thursday to easily top Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt for the award. Goldschmidt finished second with 242 points to McCutchen’s 409. He was second on 15 of the 30 ballots. Yadier Molina finished third with 219 points.…

  22. Joey Votto: don’t change a thing

    Nov 13, 2013, 5:03 PM EDT

    Division Series - San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds - Game Five

    Fun story here about Joey Votto and the continuing disdain some people in and around Cincinnati seem to have for his patient approach at the plate. My favorite quote in there was actually a question Dennis Janson says he asked when Bryan Price was introduced as Reds manager: I asked Walt Jocketty if Price is up to the…

  23. Joey Votto is still answering questions about his production in 2013

    Oct 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    Joey Votto‘s lack of RBI was a talking point throughout the season, especially among those in the Cincinnati media. They lamented his lack of RBI, suggesting that rather than going up to the plate looking to drive in runs, Votto was being passive by instead aiming to draw walks. Despite hitting third in the Reds’…

  24. Projecting the 2013 Gold Glove winners

    Oct 25, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…
