Keep throwing that fastball, eventually Votto's gonna get one.

Agree. He was down 0-2, worked the count full, and went the other way with a sold line single to knock in two big runs.

Yessir. 10-pitch at-bat against a guy bringing 99 MPH heat and one of the best closers in the game. Tremendous effort by Joey.

I think it's silly not to believe in clutch. That some guys can do better in pressure situations than other shouldn't be a foreign concept. The problem is that no one knows how to properly measure it.

I actually have decided I don't believe in positive clutch but I do believe in negative clutch. I think the "clutch" guys are the ones that can produce normally in stressful situations, while the average person chokes like a dog.

So many of the Reds have the philosophy to hit at the first pitch. That's not clutch IMHO.

Joey Votto. MVP.

UKFlounder
08-22-2010, 07:28 PM
In saves converted, but not all have been very pretty or easy. He has given up a lot of baserunners, but he is not losing the games, so I guess that's the bottom line.

Nice job by him today, for sure

If the Reds win their division, Votto has a good chance of being the league MVP, but he's for sure the Reds MVP, nosing out Rolen and Arroyo, Back to 20 over and 3.5 games up.

For those of us a little older, the Dodgers have been a major rival since 1961 (as far as I can remember). Back when there was a National League champ based on the standings at the end of the year, so many times, it was the Reds against the Dodgers. As I child I remember hating the Dodgers and Walt Alston. They came Tommy Lasorda and they they went to divisions and wild cards, and that was lost. But beating the Dodgers is always fun and this year we've had their number and it's a real pleasure.

Alston actually was the baseball coach of my alma mater back in the day from 1941-1950, little Indian Lake High School (known as Washington Local High School then). The gym is named after him, but not surprisingly, no one really knows that fact, even the people at the school. He also taught wood shop and science classes.

This win was huge IMO. The Cards gained a game yesterday and had already won big today. The Reds needed a win to keep from giving back a lot of what they'd built up in the last week.

And when they needed it, who comes through:
The veteran starter throws a gem, the ALL Star 2B gets 4 hits while playing stellar defense and the MVP candidate hits the go ahead HR and ices it with a big single following an epic AB.

Somehow that seems like the Reds stepping up and saying "we're for real." Its not a flukey game from Miguel Cairo or Laynce Nix, a blooper by Paul Janish, a rookie pitcher exploiting his first time around the league advantage or an out of nowhere HR from guys like Bruce or Stubbs who go into huge periods of being MIA. It was the guys who are supposed to pick-up the team doing it when the team needed it and somehow that feels less like a fluke and more like a sustainable performance.

I know as well as anyone that style points don't matter, but this just feels like a legit team winning the way its supposed to.

What a GREAT win! Nice job all the way around. Bronson was great and Mr. MVP (aka, Most Vottomatic Player) just keeps on doing his thing. I love this team! :thumbup:

This is just my opinion, but if you don't believe in this Reds team by now, then you either aren't trying very hard or need serious therapy. GO REDS!!! :D

Just wanted to chime in and say that was a great win yesterday! What a clutch performance by Votto! His HR was huge after the Dodgers had tied the game. Then the way he battled Broxton after being down 0-2 in the count. That was an MVP performance! Arroyo has been really fantastic too. The Reds needed him to go 7 innings and that's just what he did. Winning games like this goes a long way in winning a pennant.
