Baseball Is Life: It Could Always Be Worse

Baseball Is Life: It Could Always Be Worse

I’m trying to think of a more frustrating job than Person In Charge of Putting a Positive Spin on the 2017 Reds, and I got nothin.’ Outside of the perennial constant highlight that is Joey Votto, they gave this person a donkey and Scooter Gennett and told him to make a highlight reel which was …

Joey Votto Might Actually Be Perfect

Joey Votto Might Actually Be Perfect

Joey Votto is an MVP candidate. His numbers versus the National League competition are stunning and some people, at least, have noticed. He probably won’t win, but he’ll get some voted for sure. And why? Well, he lead the league in walks, OBP, OPS, OPS+, and wRC+. He was fifth in homers and sixth in …

Joey Votto reaches 100 RBI on the season, comment sections begin to implode

Joey Votto reaches 100 RBI on the season, comment sections begin to implode

[insert The Marcels ‘Blue Moon’ lyrics] Clocks stopped, computers froze, and smartphones everywhere automatically downloaded the entire U2 catalog today as the internet comment section world reacted to Joey Votto knocking in his 100th run of the 2017 season. Denizens of the nether-regions of Cincinnati Reds webholes reacted with a mix of shock, flatulence, and yawny qualifying statements at the once mythical happening, with one near-sighted fellow remarking "Well, actually it’s more like 94 arby-eyes if you account for the launch-angle revolution and the current run environment. In...

The Reds get Decked early, can’t rally late, lose by one run again 7-6

The Reds get Decked early, can’t rally late, lose by one run again 7-6

Deck McGuire puns! The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The Reds did a lot of good things tonight. Joey Votto hit once, had an RBI, and walked twice because he basically lives on base. Scott Schebler hit twice, including a dinger. Zack Cozart dingered and walked. Billy Hamilton hit a freakin’ triple. The scuffling Adam Duvall hit twice, even. Luke Ferrell dealt out of the bullpen again, as did Michael Lorenzen, and, God love him, Ariel Hernandez didn’t allow a run despite himself. None of it was good enough to win and it got me thinking... there are a lot of you out there...

Reds blanked by Red Sox 5-0

Reds blanked by Red Sox 5-0

Joe Nuxhall Honorary Memorial Star of the Game This was an example of a game in which the Reds faced a very good team that put a very good pitcher on the mound who had very good stuff and very good command throughout the evening. For that, the threshold for relative success is lowered significantly, and that’s why Joey Votto gets this evening’s JNHMSotG trophy. Votto was the only Reds hitter to reach base twice in tonight’s game, reaching on a single and a walk. It’s a fairly mundane game by Votto’s standards, which yet again shows how even when the Reds are overmatched on the...
