A Joey Votto Reference Point

It's far too obvious not to point out. Joey Votto should walk less. Joey Votto doesn't get paid to walk. Joey Votto should swing the bat if he's going to bat 3rd in the lineup... ★★★ The following is an abbreviated, incomplete list of players who have walked at least 100 times in a season they spent hitting primarily 3rd or 4th in the batting order: Joe Morgan Ted Williams Barry Bonds Wade Boggs George Brett Carl Yastrzemski Harmon Killebrew Mel Ott Mike Schmidt Mickey Mantle Eddie Mathews Jimmie Foxx Eddie Collins Ty Cobb Stan Musial Willie Mays Lou Gehrig Babe Ruth ... ...

Cincinnati Reds links, 2/24/15: Happy Birthday Robert Stephenson

Tuesday links as Reds players file into Goodyear. Sporting News baseball aficionado Jesse Spector has been paying attention to the misguided criticism of Joey Votto's #approach lately, so he penned (keyboarded?) a piece looking into a scenario where all the Reds best offensive player did was take walks.  Shockingly - probably due to some voodoo math that Spector conjured up from some ragtag saber spreadsheet - if Votto did absolutely nothing but walk, he'd be a more productive player by roughly 19 million percent, give or take.  Sarcasm aside, it has always baffled me that people tend to...

I’m not going to use the words ‘he’s right’ but, he’s right

Joey Votto has arrived in Goodyear and the team’s beat writers dutifully asked him about the “controversy” regarding his hitting approach. The issue has resurfaced because of comments like those from Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman, who recently said: “If this guy comes back and is content to lead the lead in OBP again, then this …

Cincinnati Reds Links 2/21/15: NL Central preview and position battles

A roundup of links for your Saturday enjoyment Earlier this week, Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun caught up with hometown boy Joey Votto to discuss his off-season. It seems that this was the first winter in ten years that Votto spent in Toronto rather than Florida. Votto listed ten activities that kept him busy all off-season, some of which were predictable, others less so. Of course, since it’s an interview with a local paper, Votto speaks glowingly of Toronto and how much he enjoys his time there. But in light of recent discussions about him and his role on the team, it’s hard not to...
