Matt Carpenter as The Best Matt Carpenter (And Also a Little Bit as Joey Votto)

Matt Carpenter is having his best season in the majors yet. Why and how are the questions we ask here. The cherry and pineapple flavoured gummi worms are the best. When I was a kid, I liked the green and red ones that were lime and cherry, but since the candy industry has decided they hate humanity and want to make us all suffer with the scourge of apple-flavoured misery, I now rip the green portions out of those worms and eat only the red parts. Green and red gummi worms can (semi-violent sex act redacted). The red and white, though, do an heroic job of helping me forget about the...

This Week in JPEGs

The Super 70s Last week’s winner was Joey Votto’s Awe-Inspiring Hands. This week, our theme is The Super 70s. No real preface this time. Let’s just get on with it. The New Hit King The entirety of baseball internet was heaving over the landmark accomplishment of the Indomitable Ichiro. On Wednesday, he smacked his 4,257th professional base hit, making him the new and undisputed Hit King. Pete Rose, who was a superstar way back in the 1970s and has only seen his acclaim appreciate in his old age, was graceful and elegant in his passing of the crown....

Reds lose to Atlanta 7-2, wave goodbye to Turner Field with series split

A mundane matinee. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto has seemingly found his wallet since the calendar flipped to June, and his resurgence was again on display for the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.  Votto smacked three singles and drew a walk against the Atlanta Braves - his first three hit game of the 2016 season - and in the process raised his season line to .248/.377/.443 (.820 OPS).  On a day devoid of much else of note, that's trophy worthy Honorable Mentions are due to:  Adam Duvall, who thumped his 19th dinger of the season; Dayan Diaz, who tossed 2.2...

Reds lose to Braves in extra innings, a sentence that need not be typed in 2016 lexicon

why The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jay Bruce was good early, though the Cincinnati Reds didn't actually lose until about nine hours after he was effective.  Bruce doubled, drove in a few runs, and did a decent job of making the Cincinnati Reds look like they knew how to play baseball before several hours, endless pitching changes, extra innings and an after-midnight finish became the storyline. Honorable Mentions are due to:  Ivan De Jesus, Jr., who singled and drove in 3 runs; Brandon Phillips, who had a 3 hit night and scored twice; Joey Votto, who singled twice,...

Reds top Braves in Atlanta, just like every other team this season

The loss sent the Braves to a 7-26 home record on the season. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto still hasn't been "Joey Votto," yet.  His 2016 season still features a strikeout rate wholly beyond anything he had displayed in his illustrious career to this point, and a BABIP well below his career average has done serious work to keep his overall batting average below where we'd all expect it to be. Still, Votto has gradually begun to emerge from the shell he spent most of April encased within, and after Monday's 2 for 3, 2 BB, 2 run evening, his season OPS now...

Joey Votto’s Strikeouts

All astute baseball fans have noticed there is a big difference in Joey Votto’s game this year.  No, I’m not talking about his sub-.230 AVG or his sub-.360 OBP.  I’m talking, of course, about his strikeout rate (K%). Votto has never had a K% at 20% or higher, with his career high being 19.5% in …
