Who is this new Joey Votto?

Who is this new Joey Votto?

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss - just different. Just over a week ago, there was much consternation about the modifications made by Joey Votto and the production that it had (not) produced in early action for the Cincinnati Reds in 2021. Through 9 games, he was hitting just .162/.205/.162, with nary an extra base hit to his name. At 37 years old, and with a trio of seasons in his rear-view mirror that looked nothing like the player he once was, it was enough to begin wonder if the Reds master of reinvention had finally run out of...

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ The Reds claimed the series, Cleveland claimed the finale. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game On a day that saw his good buddy and former Cincinnati Reds stalwart Jay Bruce announce that he was retiring from the game, Joey Votto had another turn-back-the-clock performance. Hell, to be fair, Joey turned it back about a week and a half ago and has been stuck in his 2010 self pretty much since then, smashing lasers and bashing dingers the way he always has. Sunday saw him poke another pair of doubles sandwiched around a...

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game If you somehow managed to both have your head under a baseball rock the last two weeks while also stumbling into a Cincinnati Reds blog late on a Friday night, well, you might still have one question running through your mind at the moment. Does Joey Votto still bang? Folks, Joey Votto does still bang. The Cincinnati 1B bonked another dinger on Friday against Cleveland, bashed a double off the top of the LF wall that nearly doubled that dinger output on the night, and...

Good Morning, Charlie - A Good Week, huh?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports I don’t know what I’m doing here A Good Thing - The Reds were off yesterday and so didn’t get to play on Jackie Robinson Day, which is actually not a good thing. That woulda been a cool thing. But the good thing is that they got a breather after that West Coast road trip and will be home and rested for the Cleveland Baseballers this evening. Joey Votto will jam no fewer than four extra-base hits this weekend, I predict. He is locked in and I think GABP will be a good thing for him. A Gross Thing - The smell when you load up the...

Cincinnati Reds blow four-run lead in 7-6 loss to San Francisco Giants

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Welp. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Two-run dingers from both Joey Votto and Mike Moustakas likely get them the nod here, but it’s incredibly late and the pain of watching this one slip away has already sapped the energy of the night. Nick Castellanos had a couple more hits, which was rad. Eugenio Suarez was on base twice, while Alex Blandino poked a big RBI single (at the time). Still, it will still get filed to memory as a game where the Reds had a 4-0 lead with all the cards in their hands and still found a way to lose....
