Regularly Scheduled Rain Delay: Which Joey are You?

Regularly Scheduled Rain Delay: Which Joey are You?

Joey Votto is perhaps the greatest Red in the history of all Reds. You may want to say Joe Morgan or Pete Rose or Johnny Bench or Barry Larkin, but you would be wrong because none of them are Joey Votto. Not only is Joey Votto just a step below the great Ted Williams (RIP …

Joey Votto, the Yankees, and the reasons it won’t happen

Over the last week or so, all the talk about streaks has involved Aaron Judge and strikeouts. Last night he struck out in the 33rd consecutive game, breaking Adam Dunn’s record for position players. Pitcher Bill Stoneman holds the overall record at 35 games. Judge is hitting .291/.420/.614 (170 wRC+) with an AL leading 37 […] The post Joey Votto, the Yankees, and the reasons it won’t happen appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Reds rally back against Cubs, lose on walk-off wild pitch because of course

Reds rally back against Cubs, lose on walk-off wild pitch because of course

Joey Votto singled, but his amazing multi-base streak came to an end. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game A lot of you probably forgot that Phil Ervin, the 1st round pick of the Cincinnati Reds from the 2013 MLB Draft, was even back with the team. Hell, I had to check twice. That’s the case, however, as he was called up after Devin Mesoraco was placed back on the 10-day DL with a broken foot earlier this week. Well, Ervin’s back, and after a late game switch brought him into the game, the rookie smashed a solo homer for both his first career hit and first career dinger,...

Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant isn't shy about his admiration of Reds All-Star Joey Votto. "He's the best player ever," said Bryant, who was flattered this week when Votto told him his approach at the plate looked a lot better. "He's my favorite player. I love watching him. I love talking to him...

Reds at Cubs, Game 3: Previews and Predictions

Reds at Cubs, Game 3: Previews and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds @ Chicago Cubs 8:05 PM ET Homer Bailey vs. John Lackey Homer had a good bounce-back performance last week, after his 10-run stinker before that. John Lackey goes for the Cubs, who hasn’t given up more than 3 runs in a start since June. The story in this one, though, is that Joey Votto can do something that hasn’t been done since 1948 if he reaches base twice in this game. It’d be his 21st game in a row. Go Reds!
