Recap 4/19: Cardinals lead Nationals early, hold on to win 4-3

Lance Lynn survives a lefty-heavy lineup to put in a perfectly decent outing. The Cardinals score four thanks to poor Nationals defense yet again. Lance Lynn's struggles against lefties have not gone unnoticed across the league.  Joey Votto and Jay Bruce destroyed Lynn in two starts almost single-handedly providing all the Reds' offense.  (So just like every other game for the Reds).  The Brewers put in the three lefties they had on their roster, but luckily those guys were not very good.  Today, the Nationals had five lefties face Lynn, two of which were switch hitters. The results...

Joey Votto is Good Enough

It only took a fortnight. Two weeks. A handful of games. But here we were once again, standing room only at the abyss. Arguing. Pointing fingers. Like a tired married couple hurling accusations, we play the aggrieved party for all it’s worth. It’s all gone wrong somehow. And it’s somebody’s fault. Somebody’s got to pay. …

Rays fall to Reds 12-4 as the bullpen falters

In a game that featured middle relievers galore pitching for the Rays, the Reds came out on top Cesar Ramos turned in a disastrous start for the Rays as they fell to the Reds 12-4 on Sunday in Cincinnati. Ramos was charged with four earned runs while only getting six outs in two plus innings of work. The Rays' bullpen was not better-allowing eight runs after Ramos departed in the third inning. Tony Cingrani was sharp, pitching six and a third innings while allowing only two runs on a home run by Ben Zobrist. Ramos pitched a sharp first inning, striking out Joey Votto, before running into...

Why Votto shouldn’t expand the zone

[Edit: This post was written by John Hay, loyal member of Redleg Nation. John grew up in eastern Kentucky during the Big Red Machine era. Johnny Bench was his favorite player. He now lives in Owensboro and is a math teacher. - SPM] We hear it all the time that “Joey Votto is too passive” …

Rays 2, Reds 1: Rays pick up first win in Cincinnati

CINCINNATI — Johnny Cueto didn’t feel ready to start the game. By the time he got into a rhythm, he was headed for another oh-so-close loss. David Price took a shutout into the ninth inning last night before giving up a homer to Joey Votto, and the Tampa Bay Rays held on for a 2-1 victory over the Reds, their first in Cincinnati.

*Early Reports on Lance Lynn against left-handed hitters

Lance Lynn has struggled in his career against left-handed hitters. He has faced some tough hitters in Joey Votto and Jay Bruce in his first two starts this year. Ignoring the results for the most part, looking at pitch location and selection early on could determine whether Lynn is trying a new approach this season. Lance Lynn continues to be one of the most divisive figures among the Cardinals fan base, and his first two starts have done little to settle his place as a Cardinals player. Lynn has pitched well the past two seasons, striking out roughly a batter an inning, and proving to be...

Another game with the Cardinals.  Another game against the “neck-tattoo”.  I can not stand the Cardinals.  Losing to St. Louis may be worse than anything right now.  Please Reds, beat St. Louis tonight!

Photo: Joey Votto dresses as a Canadian policeman for interview

Joey Votto joined Chris Rose and Kevin Millar of MLB Network's Intentional Talk on Tuesday and it's not what he said that people who were watching will remember. It's what he was proudly wearing instead.Behold, the former MVP donning a uniform normally reserved for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or what is colloquially known as the Mounties. Your eyes don't deceive you. That's Canadian native Joey Votto sporting a police uniform from his native land.Perhaps this is an attempt by Votto to let his teammates know that he won't tolerate losing series' any more? The Reds are in danger of...

Peter Gammons: Brewers’ Ballast, Jonathan Lucroy

Back in spring training, Joey Votto was getting into the batter’s box against the Brewers when he looked up at the home plate umpire. “This guy,” Votto told him, “gets more strikes than any catcher in the game.” The catcher was Jonathan Lucroy. Votto, of course, is the master of the strike zone universe. It […]
