    Joey needs 6 hits in the Bucs series ...

    ... to become only the 4th player in history to reach 180 hits/130 walks in a single season. The other three were Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Ted Williams.

    My apologies if this was already posted.

    If it was posted, I didn't see it. Very cool and I'll enjoy the weekend series even more knowing it. Thanks, NYR.

    That would be awesome! That is some elite company!
    But Iwould much prefer that he gets one key hit, like a 2 out double in the 8th that plates 2 runs giving the Reds a run lead, and then Chappy shuts them down to secure a Home game on TUES. night.
    Of course he can do that after already having 5 or more hits.

    That's one obscure stat..... I love Sabremetrics, but I am really annoyed by these game commentator'esque stats.

    On the other hand, congrats Joey V for your extreme propensity to get on base.

    Sorry if I offended you. I thought it was pretty awesome.

    All those times Zack Cozart hit in the 2-hole, he was just helping Votto try to make history

    Not that obscure IMO. It shows me:

    (1) pitchers are afraid to throw strikes to Votto.
    (2) Votto has a good eye.
    (3) when they do throw strikes, he gets hits.
    (4) Votto is a rare treat and all REDS fans should be thankful to have him.
    (5) team MVP to any position player not named Votto is foolish.

    Ruth, Gehrig, Williams. Ruth, Gehrig, Williams. WOW!

    Sample Season when those other three pulled the 180/130:
    Ruth 1921: .378-59-171 RBI
    Gehrig 1936 .354-49-152 RBI
    Ted Williams: 1949 .343-43-153 RBI

    Votto: .304-24-73.

    Enough said.

    I know that I am not simple-minded enough to look at the above data and mock Joey Votto. Of course mocking Votto when comparing him to three guys that may well be in the top 5 position players of all time is really dumb. Enough said.

    If only RZ held it's members to such lofty posting standards. Might not be any of us left (except Raisor).

    I find it a really interesting stat. Thanks for posting it, NYRed. Would that we had a couple more non-RBI producers like Joey.

    I think the obscurity comes from picking the arbitrary numbers of 180 and 130.
