    June is a new month. Let's see if he repeats that proformance.

    July is when you trade players because you are out ot the race. The Reds have qualified for that part of the quinella, now they just have to wait for the calandar to turn the pages.

    Moeller is the back up catcher now, Javy is the PH, I'd send him down first if Hat were staying.

    I said trade Hat first because he's the left handed 1st baseman, if Votto came up he'd be out of that job.

    3-5 tonight with 2 RBIs.

    .435 for the month, with 37 hits! .505 OBP, 1.152 OPS, 14 RBIs and 5 homers, again, all just in May.

    .512 over his last 10 games!

    .319 W/RISP on the season!

    If this kid keeps hitting like this then the reds have to trade Hatti,or Conine to get him up here.
    I can spell,I just can't type!!

    He's someone that really adjusts well I think. Look how poorly he did in the FSL. Came right back the next year. He could be a machine for the Reds. He's basically Hatteberg (from the beginning of last year) with a lot more power. Very similar approaches, and will K a bit more. But a very good tradeoff with power.

    Votto's big month last year was June. He hit well in May in 2006, but not this well.

    Whoever the manager is next year, better know about Votto's 'problems' in April.

    He is ready! I don't see how anyone can debate that. The numbers say that he is ready, his history says that he is ready, he has been in the minors for a long time and we are going no where.

    Behold the power of BABIP. Votto wsa really really unlucky in April and his May stats are bearing it out.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: Votto Hitting Over .400 For May

    I'd trade him for some pitching. I know...I know, but the REDS best bats are all lefties (Dunn, JR and Hamilton). Of course Dunn and JR might not be here in 2 months and I don't think Dunn will be back next year....So Maybe keep him.

    BUT

    What do you think the REDS would get in return for Votto?
    Don't smoke'em if you got'em
