    Re: Colin Cowerd ripping Joey Votto

    I actually find myself drawn to Colin Cowherd, he seems like he doesn't filter his opinions, he just lays 'em out.

    However, I think he makes way to make analogies and his opinions usually don't agree with mine.

    Cowherd is probably my favorite talk show guy on ESPN. It's nice to have the anti Mike and Mike. He doesn't tell people what they want to hear. He's kinda like the Nancy Grace of sports.

    Don't get up early enough to listen to mike and mike but i catch colin on espnu sometimes and typically enjoy his points of views as he does not filter stuff. i don't agree with him on Votto, but for someone who isn't around the area, I can see how he could have that point of view. We are all entitled to our opinion. The bottom line is that Votto is a topic and that is nothing but good for Votto.

    I have heard Colin say on more than one occasion that he grew up a Reds fan.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I have heard Cowherd say on more than one occasion that he's butt-ugly and that because he works harder than most people he is able to make a lot of money and was therefore able to get a good-looking wife because of it.

    Re: Colin Cowerd ripping Joey Votto

    Stats as thru 7/6/10:

    Votto:
    Runs 4th
    HR's 1st
    RBI 5th
    Walks 5th
    Average 5th
    OBP 1st
    SLG 1st
    OPS 1st

    No other player in the NL is in the top 5 of those most important categories.

    Pujols missed on runs scored and batting average.
    Howard is in the top 5 of RBI and that's it.
    Gonzalez is not in the top 5 of any of those categories.

    Cowherd should do his homework.

    Votto was one of four players in the major leagues last year to finish in the top 10 of batting average, OBP, SLG, and OPS. The other 3? A-Roid, Pujols, and Joe Mauer.

    Cowherd is a joke. He's funny to listen to. And also he repeats himself a lot. That being said I have heard a lot of talk about Votto and its all great. The one thing I havent heard is the Redlegs will finish in Philly B4 the break Dont you think Votto will still have a chip on his mighty shoulder.

    Colin Cowherd ripped the Reds a new one

    Listening to his radio show at the moment. Here's the basic premise behind his argument:

    --we feast on bad teams in a weak division
    --we drew a laughable interleague schedule
    --we can't beat the elite teams
    --Votto's peers don't think he's great. It's just us Reds fans that do

    I'll take the press, though.

    By the way, I take none of his sports opinions very seriously. if it's not happening in NYC or LA., then it doesn't matter to him.

    He also says "quit rooting for the local team." :

    His name is very close to being translated as "fearful of anus"

    Cowherd's opinions are about as valuable as Enron stock.

    Cowherd is worse than Skip Bayless.. He always says the complete opposite of what everyone else believes

    I am more amazed you listened to him long enough to catch that dribble, he is worthless.
