Joey Votto: I'd rather quit than struggle

Joey Votto: I'd rather quit than struggle

Joey Votto’s April was so bad that he said he’d rather walk away from the game and give up the remaining years on his contract than play that way.

The worst month of Joey Votto's career

He's looked befuddled at times, but that will soon change. As of the Wednesday night, the Cincinnati Reds had two April games remaining on their schedule, a pair of weekend contests on the road against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  That means there are just a two contests before we reach a convenient end-point, one which breaks down into a chunk often cited and easily comparable with those from the careers of baseball players throughout the game's rich history. Joey Votto will enter Wednesday's game against the Mets with a .221/.311/.312 line in his 86 PA this month.  As things currently sit,...

Joey Votto's Number 1 Fan Will Haunt You Forever

JOEYYYY VOTTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Reds fan Cory Miller was peacefully attending a Reds-Rockies game this past week, enjoying a nice day at the ballpark when all of the sud- JOEY VOTTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! This young lady, whom Cory says he has never seen before, was otherwise quiet except for when JDV came up to bat. JOEEYYYY VOTTTTTTTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO When asked about the experience Cory said, "So the first time she did it I thought, "Wow she has a very noticeable voice" and judging from the attendance there that evening I feel JDV heard her every...

Joey Votto on slow start: 'Everybody wants to rush the Ferrari'

Joey Votto is hitting .182 with a .524 OPS, numbers not helped by new pull tendencies. But he's working to correct that.

Cardinals play Home Run Derby, forget to tell the Reds, win 14-3

That wasn't pretty. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game You know I'm not afraid to give the trophy to a non-Red on a day like this, but if you think that I'm giving this award to a Cardinal, well, stop reading right now and check yourself into a insane asylum. So by default, this'll go to Joey Votto, who hit his first home run slash extra base hit on this evening in the 3rd. At the time, it brought the Reds right back into the game. Of course the game would go off the rails from that point, but it's nice to see Votto be Votto. This season hasn't started the way that he...

Game nuggets: Cincinnati Reds 6, Philadelphia Phillies 2

Joey Votto and Tyler Holt pulled off disappearing-then-reappearing acts in the Cincinnati Reds’ 6-2 win on Opening Day.

Highlights: Votto, Bruce Clutch Hits; Holt, Hamilton Flash Leather

Some amazing grabs and some amazing hits in the form of a vine. This game was looking bleak on the highlights side of things, but then the 8th inning happened and all of that changed. After a Cozart sac fly to tie the game, JDV was up to bat with the bases loaded... And then proceeded to demonstrate that it was, in fact, no sweat. Jay Bruce immediately followed with another solid single. The Reds took the lead 6-2, and they never looked back. Eventually the Phillies bullpen got out of that inning, but the Reds weren't done with the highlights just yet. A sharply hit fly ball to left...

Reds 6, Phillies 2 | Votto delivers key hit in eighth-inning rally

adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-SPORTS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-SPORTS"};CINCINNATI -- Zack Cozart had three hits and drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, and Joey Votto followed with a bases-loaded single that sent the Reds to a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in a Monday opener matching the majors' two worst teams from last season.
Redleg Nation Apr 4, 2016


Look, the awful Phillies were already pressing their luck. Joey Votto has played in over 1100 major league games and only nine times had he been struck out by one pitcher. Jeremy Helickson (!) had accomplished that today. Joey Votto hadn’t struck out four times in a game since 2009. He still hasn’t. The Reds …

Joey Votto is trying to teach us something - and we should listen

The new Joey Votto is all about fun - I think I like it. Joey Votto is known around the league as an incredibly serious and stone faced individual who is all business. This perception isn't necessarily wrong, but over the last 2 weeks we have seen a whole new side of JDV that we have never seen before. JOEY RACED BP TO HOME. WHO DOES THAT?! Where has this man been? The last time we saw Joey truly cut loose was during the famous Nibbles The Horse interview (admittedly my favorite video of all time), and watching him this spring has been something of a treat. I'm not Joey Votto,...
