Joey the Heel vs All Star Game? More Like All Fall Asleep Early Game Today we have (yet another) Joey Votto bit pitted against an All Star Game commentary. Joey the Heel celebrates Votto's silliness as he needlessly and playfully antagonized opposing fans. All Star Game? More Like All Fall Asleep Early Game shows my wife and me being put to sleep by the dulcet droning of Joe Buck on a national telecast. Get to voting, folks. Also, I strongly urge to get in the game here. All I ask is that you use MSPaint rather than Photoshop. vs Poll Of these two...

Figuring out a Hall of Fame path for Joey Votto

Figuring out a Hall of Fame path for Joey Votto

Joey Votto has been the best player on the Reds throughout the entirety of his 10-year career. That can hardly be debated, as he’s led the team in bWAR every full season he’s played, with the exception of 2008, when he was still the most valuable position player, and his tumultuous 2014 campaign. His greatness related to not only his teammates, but his peers around baseball, is just part of the reason we’ve assembled this week of appreciation for Votto here. But as this week winds down, it’s time to take a look at how Votto’s career stacks up against the rest of baseball...

FanGraphs Fan Projections

One of my favorite things every off season – FanGraphs Fan Projections – is now up and running. For some reason, Reds fans are often underrepresented at FanGraphs and right now the only player with enough data to show a projection is Joey Votto. Anyhow, head over and tell them what you think will happen. …

Joey Votto’s Best 2016 AB’s

Joey Votto’s Best 2016 AB’s

Just Joey doing what Joey does best. It’s ‘We Love Joey Votto Week’ here at Red Reporter, and no such week would be complete without spending a little time watching Votto do what he does best — get on base. Votto has led the National League in OBP five of the past seven years, and finished second to Bryce Harper in 2015. He’s unquestionably the best player in baseball at doing exactly what hitters are paid to do — get on base. We’ve been lucky enough to watch him do that on a nightly basis since 2007, and despite the opinion of a certain HOF broadcaster, let’s hope that...

Joey Votto Keeps on Truckin' vs Eugenio Suarez Does His Best Todd Frazier Impression This humble artist is among the unsurprised that a film like La La Land was lauded with such praise at the Golden Globes. In such dark and desperate times, it is only natural for us to crave such extravagant escapism. Life is always more bearable in Technicolor than sepia.

Joey Votto’s favorite pitchers

Joey Votto’s favorite pitchers

Who has served him the finest meatballs? It’s impossible to lay claim to a career batting line of .313/.425/.536 in over 5400 career plate appearances without having completely owned a lot of pitchers in that time. Yes, Joey Votto has punished many a pitcher in his day, his career 157 OPS+ a pretty solid indicator of what happens when a mistake pitch crosses some part of his plate. For Red Reporter’s We Love Joey Votto Week, I thought I’d dive into Votto’s history against every pitcher he’s ever faced to find out which particular hurlers have felt his wrath in the greatest...

22 reasons why Reds fans should love Joey Votto

Don’t listen to the radio, listen to your heart Joey Votto is the target of some wrong-headed abuse. Here, we are going to take the time to set it right. Here are 22 reasons, one for every million dollars Marty thinks he doesn’t deserve. These reasons are why you, a Reds fan, should love having Joey Votto play for your favorite team. 1: We’re glad we don’t have to do 37 reasons Joey Votto is underpaid. If you assume about $5 million per win above replacement (WAR) on the open market (in 2015, teams averaged $5.3M per win), Joey has to play at a little more than 4 WAR to be worth the...

Welcome to we love Joey Votto week!

Welcome to we love Joey Votto week!

Join us for a celebration of one of the best players in the game. Red Reporter readers, The last few seasons haven’t been the best for Reds fans. Since 2014, Cincinnati has lost a combined 278 games...and that is a lot of losing. We’ve watched fan favorites get traded, and opposing teams hit home runs at record rates. It’s possible you’ve asked yourself at least once over the past few years, “Why am I doing this to myself?” Yes, there have been plenty of reasons to be disappointed lately. Yet we shouldn’t allow that to blind us to the good things we do have. People can be so...

Cincinnati Reds links - Joey Votto will not play for Canada in World Baseball Classic

Cincinnati Reds links - Joey Votto will not play for Canada in World Baseball Classic

Thursday links! The Cincinnati Reds have had an offseason so boring that the first newsworthy thing in weeks is something that’s actually not happening - and not even 100% Reds related. Last night, Canada’s own Joey Votto announced that he would bypass playing in 2017’s World Baseball Classic, instead intending to focus on aspects of his game that he “decided were lacking” during the 2016 season, as The Enquirer’s C. Trent Rosecrans relayed. Yep, that’s the Joey Votto who had the NL’s best OPS+ last year. Surely, it’s his defense and second consecutive year with a...

The Gift of Joey Votto

The Gift of Joey Votto

It’s nearly Christmas and, as such, we should spend time thinking about the greatest gift baseball has given us in the last decade. I speak, of course, of Joey Votto. (Okay, okay, he’s probably really second behind Johnny Cueto’s Instagram). We’ve pretty much all been on Hall of Fame watch with Votto since 2010. We …
