    I never saw Robinson play but his stats are eye popping. So it has to be between Robinson and Votto. Klu was not chopped liver either. But his prime was much shorter.
    They'll just keep saying it until it's true, and then beat their chests like they were right all along.

    It's just the way some folks operate.

    I think that's certainly one option. Is a move of Stephenson to the outfield a possibility?

    Yet there are those who blame Votto's contract as the reason the Reds have lacked success. I feel like I have been watching a different movie.

    I can’t believe in the year of our Lord 2022, we’re still having the “is Joey Votto a Hall of Famer?” debate

    Joey Votto is not your grandpa’s Hall of Famer, but he absolutely belongs


    C. Trent Rosecrans and Jayson Stark look at some of the myths around Voter's Hall of Fame credentials --- and debunk them.

    First triple in GAB since 2016. The man still bangs, and wheels too.

    Speaking of - wheels, where you at?

    Here’s my two cents on triples

    Triples today are less a result of slugging and more a result of field quirks

    Hasn't it been like that since the Babe Ruth changed the game from what it was in the Ty Cobb era?

    Joey Votto was working on a few significant adjustments in late April. Then he got sick, and he didn’t immediately get to see how well they could work.

    Now, Votto is seeing the payoff.

    I learned a long time ago Votto will tell us when he’s washed, not some random dude on a message board.

    Yeah, that's true but triples were still big until the fifties, then they waned and multi-use stadiums and turf increased them and now all the quirk boutique parks have weird areas that cause havoc if a ball is every in play (so few chances of that) but it seems I see more weird ones than drives

    It is worth noting that this thread was started facetiously.

    Joey Votto didn’t look at it like missed two homers at Fenway last night.

    He saw it as two good swings that will lead to positive results in any ballpark.
