Joey Votto homers, Tim Adleman dominates, and the Reds pounded the Dodgers, 9-2

An all-around thumping of the NL West leaders. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Tim Adleman.  Remember Tim Adleman?  He was the Cincinnati Reds' 28 year old rookie who appeared from seemingly nowhere in May and surprised us all with 4 starts of 3.72 ERA ball, posting a solid 116 ERA+ in the wake of having worked at a grocery store to make ends meet. Well, an oblique injury threatened to shovel that story to the back shelves of Reds history and end Adleman's front-page story altogether.  However, Tim just wasn't going to let that be the entire story, and after a lengthy...

Joey Votto is a Hitting Savant. And Still Underrated.

Joey Votto is a Hitting Savant. And Still Underrated.

I spent some time admiring Joey Votto in my latest piece over at Cincinnati Magazine: Joey Votto is the most underrated hitter in all of baseball. How’s that for a hot take? Whether it’s actually true or not is a matter of perspective, but since there’s no way to measure “underratedness,” I’m not going to …

Reds Poised, Positioned for Better 2017 Campaign

Reds Poised, Positioned for Better 2017 Campaign

by: Jack WardStaff WriterBold prediction…..the Reds are not going to lose 100 games. That’s a relief! And the way they are playing after the All-Star break gives us great encouragement for next season. I can see the Reds being in the middle of the pack next year in the division. I think the Reds will be better than Milwaukee and Pittsburgh next season. Here are my reasons.1. Billy Hamilton. Billy is getting tips from Joey Votto and has become a better hitter because of it. He is getting on base. He is stealing bases at a record pace. He is scoring runs. He already is the best...

MLB Week 19 – The Impatience of Being Patience

Your browser does not support iframes.by: Dan HowardStaff WriterSixteen days into August and our beloved Reds played just their fourth game at home this month last night.At least the next ten games are at home, including an unusual Friday to Monday four game series versus the Los Angeles Dodgers.It seems weird to say Joey Votto went one-for-four Monday night and saw his batting average drop to .303. Votto is hitting .379 since June 1, second best in MLB (Houston’s Jose Altuve .392).Tough loss for Cincinnati in the first of four against the Marlins. It was made even tougher thanks to the...

Cincinnati Reds links - Joey Votto has been the best hitter in the National League

Monday links! Numbers aren't always the most enjoyable thing in the world to dig through.  Sorry, Slyde.  When those numbers are describing the kind of baseball that Joey Votto has been putting on display for the Cincinnati Reds, however, it's hard not to sort through them carrying a smile and a chuckle. What Votto has been doing for the last calendar year, on the whole, has been stupefyingly absurd.  And yes, that even includes his slow start to the 2016 season and the career 0-fer streak he suffered through mid-April.  Votto's .303/.429/.514 line for the entire 2016 season is rather...

Cody Reed bashed again, Reds lose to Brewers 7-3

Poor, poor Cody Reed can't escape the 1st inning, again. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto is one of the best baseball players on the planet. That's not new or groundbreaking stuff to read or write, but it sure feels and sounds so damn good to read/write/say aloud that it was worth typing again in this space, for what has to be the eleventieth billion time (and, hopefully, another eleventy billion more). Votto smacked two more hits in this one, including his 19th round-tripper of the year, which was enough to bat in all of the Reds runs. His batting average is up...

Reds offense explodes to knock off Brewers 11-5

Cincinnati racked up 16 hits on the evening. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game It's difficult not to give this honor to the entire Reds offense. On Saturday night they racked up 16 hits and 11 runs to knock off the Brewers in Milwaukee. However, if one performance has to be singled out, then the nod probably goes to Eugenio Suarez (sorry Joey Votto). Heading to the top of the 6th the Reds led 1-0. After Cincinnati tacked on two more runs in the inning, Suarez connected for a three run homer to put this one out of reach. It was his 19th home run of the season. On the night...

Farmers Only: Is Jesse Winker really Joey Votto, Jr.?

Probably yes. Louisville Bats 7, Charlotte Knights 3 Tim Adelman was able again, giving up no earned runs in 7 full. J.J. “Groover” Hoover used to be a major league pitcher, remember? Anyway, he blew the save in the 8th (no surprise, right?) but then got credited with the win, because pitcher wins are stupid. Anyway, he gave up 3 hits and an earned run. Kevin “Love” Shackelford pitched the 9th and allowed nothing, striking out 1. Uncle Jesse Winker was 3-3 in this one, including a walk. He’s hitting .303 now. The Cassarole Seth Mejias-Brean doubled and walked, scoring 2 runs. Beau...

Reds try for late rally, fall short against Cardinals, lose 3-2 in series finale

A tough loss to wrap the divisional series. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game On a night where the starting pitcher was merely OK, the bullpen allowed some runners and escaped by the skin of their teeth, and the overall Cincinnati Reds offense was rather lackluster, Joey Votto at least provided what you'd hope Joey Votto would provide against a pitcher he's seen time and time again over the years. Votto went 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored, and while Jaime Garcia kept the rest of the Reds offense off-kilter, he was once again the battleship in the lineup the team has...
