What has gotten in to Taijuan Walker?

Taking a glance at the young pitcher's recent improvement You might have noticed that Taijuan Walker was not very impressive over the first two months of the season. In his first nine outings, Walker allowed four runs or more five times. He walked four batters in nearly half of his starts, allowed eight homers in 43 frames, and only made it past the sixth inning once. His ERA was well over seven and hitters torched him for a .313/.393/.503 line. For sakes of comparison, Joey Votto is batting .282/.396/.495 in a hitters park. Walker looked overmatched and if the Mariners had had any...

Mets win in 13 innings in conclusion of suspended game

Mets-Reds Part II lasted longer than Part I of their six-inning suspended game on Saturday. But at the end of seven innings of futility at the plate from both teams, the Mets loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the 13th, and when Reds first baseman Joey Votto botched a high-hopper off the bat of Lucas Duda, Dilson Herrera scored the winning run in a 2-1 victory Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.

Will Aroldis Chapman Become the Reds’ All-Time Leader in Saves?

The Reds are not having a good season. The team has a lot of holes, many of them caused by injury. But the Reds do have some elite players. Joey Votto is a superstar. Todd Frazier is having an MVP type of season. Johnny Cueto has been a Cy Young caliber pitcher for several years now. …

Joey Votto’s numbers are All-Star worthy, but can he make the team at the NL’s most loaded position?

Joey Votto is enjoying about the best possible rebound season he could have expected after suffering through a lost 2014 campaign. But is the Reds first baseman worthy of being an All-Star in what’s become a stacked position in the National League? Let’s dive into the numbers by examining how Votto’s 2014 and 2015 numbers compare …

Todd Frazier fuels offense, Aroldis Chapman hits 103mph in Reds 5-2 win against Detroit

Todd Frazier continues to put up numbers and Aroldis Chapman puts up a number. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Todd Frazier is probably the de facto face of the Reds. He doesn't have the hardware in the trophy case to rival Joey Votto and thus, probably not the national notoriety that comes with being the former MVP. But his bat is rivaling the genius of Votto, and his smile and personality rank right up there with the pearly whites of Brandon Phillips. His offensive production has lapped Jay Bruce over the last 2 seasons and couple that with the fact that Johnny Cueto is...

Long night. Reds lose. CHI 4 CIN 3

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game I don’t know, Joey Votto? He had two hits, plus a run scored and an RBI from his solo home run in the fourth inning. But it seems like Votto is a pretty safe bet for JNMHS of the G honors on any given night, so let’s go with it. Honorable mention is due to Ryan Matteus who pitched two scoreless innings, including the eighth, in which he somehow gave up two doubles and a single, and no runs. Now that’s an impressive feat. Key Plays After a quick first inning that featured some nice defensive work from both teams’ infields, Kris...

Reds 11, Phillies 2: Joey Votto is epic

Joey Votto is special, but tonight he was somehow more than that. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto. There's really nothing left to write that hasn't been written in this space, or any space, about the former MVP. For all the criticism that he takes from some in the local media and fanbase for whatever it is people like that decide to complain about, there's absolutely no one that: 1) lives on planet earth and 2) watches baseball could ever tell you, with even their best poker face, that watching an un-injured, dialed in Joey Votto bat isn't some of the most...
