07-08-2008, 11:36 AM
This is a pretty cool article and it's really great to see a few Reds rookies get mentioned here. Look who's right at number six on this list! :thumbup:


6. Joey Votto, 1b, 24, Reds
AVG: .280 OBP: .347 SLG: .478 AB: 268 HR: 12 2B/3B: 17/0 SB: 4/7
Black Ink: None. Gray Ink: AVG, OBP, SLG, HR.

Votto’s hot start made Scott Hatteberg expendable (well, that and Hatteberg’s miserable start), and the Reds haven’t looked back. The Toronto native slowed down in June (.257/.315/.386)—and even went 1-for-11 in three road games against the Blue Jays last week.
