    If I knew what Batting Average was, I would be able to decide if this was good or not.

    I have never had a man crush.

    Lord willing, I will never have a man crush.

    But if I ever did have a man crush, it would be on Joey Votto.

    Re: Joey Votto is...

    Have I mentioned that I have a cat named after Votto?

    Votto Huckleberry Raisor.

    He is actually more awesome than Joey.

    ...becoming more personable during his on camera interviews.

    In the past, Votto seemed to loathe speaking about himself after a game-winning hit. In fact, he would sometimes appear downright constipated about it.

    After last night's hit, he actually seemed to enjoy speaking about what he had accomplished--and how great he felt about the Reds so early in the season.

    The best pure hitter in major league baseball today. He's a student of the craft of hitting, and like Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, and others before him that had the same devotion, he's going to sail into the HOF barring massive injuries.

    I was surprised this PDoc column slipped by the RZ wags... It is a target-rich environment.

    “I like art and museums,’’ Votto is saying. “The first thing I do in a city is find a place downtown where I can have a tea or cappuccino.’’

    Reminds me of the Jim Brosnan quote about how classical music gave him absolute bliss and that there was no way his teammates would understand or participate if he shared it with them. Harang and Tomko both liked to sketch when on the road.

    I like espresso... just had a 4 shot americano myself

    Some days, nothing beats a nice multi-shot espresso drink and a good book.

    Call me a fancy man if you must.

    I like my coffee like Texas crude, but deep down I know I'd be a better man if I drank the fancy stuff.
