How has the face of the Reds changed in the last 5 years?

How has the face of the Reds changed in the last 5 years?

To a specific subset of saber-oriented baseball fans, the face of the Reds is the same as it has been for the last decade. It’s still Joey Votto, that cerebral, brooding presence that makes stat-heads swoon. The Reds have made it clear that they plan on building the next competitive Reds team around Votto, despite his advancing age (he’s already 33!), and Votto will be under contract with the Reds until 2024. He’s the team’s highest earner, and as such, is one of the first players to get the blame locally when the team isn’t winning. To most Reds fans, though, the face of the team...

After that were the other guys who were starting in the afternoon game. • Even in batting practice, no one hits like Votto. No pop-ups, no ground balls, nothing soft. Just line drives all over …

Is Brett Gardner really too patient at the plate?

Is Brett Gardner really too patient at the plate?

Brett Gardner will occasionally annoy fans by looking at a called third strike. Is it really something he should change? Patience is supposedly a virtue. But in some hitters’ cases, it might actually be a liability. For the Cincinnati Reds, the question of whether Joey Votto was drawing too many walks has been explored in the past. Even though he is very good at making contact, Mike Trout will rack up his fair share of strikeouts, simply because he goes deep into the count so often. For the Yankees, the same has occasionally been asked about left fielder Brett Gardner. Gardner loves to...

Cincinnati Reds links - Joey Votto hard at work on defense

Wednesday links! Eno Sarris has made a wonderful habit of getting access to the top players in all of baseball for awhile now. Even better, he’s had a knack for not just coming up with thought-provoking questions to ask them, but for getting the kind of answers out of those players that truly give insight into how they’re as good at what they do as they are. Sometimes, it’s talking to pitchers about the varying grips they use to tweak their pitches. Other times, it’s talking to Joey Votto about the one thing the Cincinnati Reds 1B thinks he struggles with - defense. As the FanGraphs...
