    With Baseball-Reference and some many others like it (although really, nothing compares), I see no reason to buy a book. Except the Votto cover, of course.

    So true, very cool for Votto and his fans.

    For those that haven't see it:



    It also looks like Joey will be on the cover of the 2011 Ron Shandler's Baseball Forecaster:

    Lol... Well that's what happens when you hit the ball like your trying to commit felonious assault...
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I can't remember the last time The Reds had a player just explode into stardom like Joey has. How awesome.

    Please, oh please let The Reds be able to keep him.

    Anyone else notice and/or find it funny that both cover photos are in the AWAY uni.
    I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.
