    Joey Votto

    Current leader in WAR (3.8), wOBA (.466), WRC+ (196), and OPS (1.119) to name a few stats.

    One can easily say that he is currently the best player in the league, and by far the best 1B in the league.

    I remember when people were upset that we signed this guy to the deal that we did -- he just seems to keep getting better, and I think that we're going to look back on having him as one of the best moves the Reds ever made.

    Oh also, just a little note...Votto is currently on pace to have a better season than any of Pujols' seasons in his career. Phenomenal.
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game.

    He's just killing it....and getting better each series it seems.


    Pujols had a 1.114 OPS.....8 times over 1.000.

    At age 23 he put up this line.....137 runs, 212 hits, 51 2B, 43 HR, 124 RBI, .359 avg, .667 slug %, 394 total bases and .439 OB%.

    "Age 23"

    That said I was just saying that right now, according to sabremetrics, Votto is on pace to have a better single season than any Pujols had in his entire career.

    From John Fay post

    Joey Votto, a former MVP himself, was asked about facing a fellow MVP in Verlander:

    “I can’t speak for him. I’ve known a lot of pitchers that look past the number or names on the back of a jersey and they just concentrate on execution. I try to do the same as a hitter. But certainly, you can’t help but step it up a little bit.”
    step it up a bit?

    That will be a sight to see, He is hitting .563 over the last 13 games and now he is going to step it up.

    It's just too bad no one apparently had the smarts/nads to walk into Krivsky's office and tell him what kind of mistake he was about to make.

    That he wouldn't be remembered as the GM savvy enough to engineer the Rule 5 acquisition of Hamilton...but as the guy stupid enough to trade him after a helluva rookie season.

    And get fired in no small part because of it.

    I agree but hindsight is best.....he could've blew out a knee or failed a drug test at any time.....who ever would've thought JH would do what he's doing now after one rookie season? If you said you did then please tell us who's next on that list of great rookies who won't fail...cause alot end up failing.

    Re: Joey Votto

    one of the writers for ESPN had the guts to step up this morning and point out that Votto is by far the best hitter in baseball this year - Josh Hamilton just gets the media attention because he's more flashy and hits more HR's
    The horrors of being a diehard Reds fan living on the North Side of Chicago are unspeakable...

    Yeah....but it's not lottery odds either
