Joey Votto is the most valuable player of my heart anyway

Joey Votto is the most valuable player of my heart anyway

In which this humble bloghole scribe is unexpectedly not furious Yesterday, in the run-up to the announcement of the Most Valuable Player awards, my friend and I hope yours Wick Terrell rolled his eyes and discretely gave the whole thing a middle finger. I think we all kinda expected that our man Joey Votto wasn’t going to win the thing, which he didn’t, and so Wick was all whatever about it. I was much more sanguine than him. And to be clear, I’m normally just as nonplussed about these things as he was yesterday. But after seeing perfectly decent human being and pretty good...

Joey Votto falls short in National League MVP voting by just 2 votes

Joey Votto falls short in National League MVP voting by just 2 votes

The first baseman fell to Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins in the 4th-closest NL MVP vote of all time. Joey Votto was close. He was oh, so close. In arguably his best season as a Cincinnati Red, the first baseman was just 2 votes shy of notching his second Most Valuable Player award, barely losing out to Marlins’ outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. This is the third time that Votto has finished in the top 3 in MVP voting in his career, winning the award in 2010 and getting third in 2015. While both players had outstanding seasons, and Stanton was certainly deserving of the award, it is hard...

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton won the award by two points over Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto. Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt came in third but the Colorado […] Colorado Rockies: Arenado, Blackmon come in 4th and 5th in MVP - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The MVP will be given the Joey Votto Award tonight

Yay popularity contests yayyyyyy. Jose Altuve or Aaron Judge will win the American League MVP tonight, which is fine. The seasons produced by each had ample highlights, mind-bending statistical excellence, and each even got play for a ‘winner’ under the playoff lights. Over in the National League, though, the outcome of the senior circuit MVP is a little murkier. One of Giancarlo Stanton, Paul Goldschmidt, or Joey Votto will get a plaque, two fanbases (or more) yelling at them, and some nifty black-type on their Baseball Reference page, yet none of the three appears to have run away...

We might be seriously overlooking Scott Schebler

Was that the quietest 30 dinger season in Reds history? When you think about the current iteration of the Cincinnati Reds, you think of Joey Votto. You think of Billy Hamilton’s speed and defense, Zack Cozart’s breakout, donkey, and free agency, and Scooter Gennett’s 4-dinger game. Adam Duvall’s name comes to mind, what with the unexpected All Star appearance and mammoth first halves of seasons. Eugenio Suarez, similarly, picked up a larger fan following thanks to a breakout 2017, and Tucker Barnhart just signed a contract extension and took home a Gold Glove for excellent defense...
