"I can't take this homerism anymore." - 10xWSChamps, August 11, 2010. A Cardinals fan having a problem with all the homerism on Redszone. Classic.

Votto breaks out tonite with a good game....book it!!!
Votto has a "good game" every game practically, but it's not MVP good, or 3 hole good, it's maybe Ichiro lead off good - with really bad running. He's playing his way up the batting order if you ask me, just 6-7 years before I'd hoped.
It may be his knee. Or his swing. Or the fact that his favorite barista is on vacation and he isn't getting the proper treatment at his local coffeehouse. Whatever it is, something may be off. I'm not totally worried, but we might be at DEFCON 4.
Haha, looking back we'll know, that was DEFCON 4 and we did nothing!!!!
I'm not in the "something's wrong with Votto camp" yet. His OBP is amazing. He's defense is amazing, which makes me think his knee isn't the problem necessarily. And all those walks shows his eye is working just fine. I'm more confused by his weak swing. It looks like he's putting no power in that swing.
RC/27 of 9.92 not bad
ISOP of .083 not good.
His current state comp his John McGraw 1899
What's the coffee and fancy shirt joke that I seemed to miss a while back? Was this about the stupid rumors from '09?
Joey being Joey.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
So Joey hit a HR and stole a base (in which I'm assuming he slid into 2nd) today. Hopefully it goes a long way towards his being back at 100% physically and mentally.

"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
