Cincinatti Reds: Joey Votto’s Fantabulous Day!

Who in the hell is Joey Votto?

Votto who is in his first full season as a major leaguer torched the Chicago Cubs with three home runs today.

To add insult to the tri-homer day he also threw in an in your face stolen base.

I am smelling a po’tential Rookie of the Year season. Joey Longball had never had a three dinger day at any level in his career before. But who has.

John Lieber gave up four home runs in the bottom of the second inning to tie a baseball record for frequent flier miles redeemed in a single inning. Damn Lieber has been one of the majors hottest hurlers going into this match up.

Votto now has seven HRs. He is batting .302, with a healthy OPS of .945.

Votto if and when he becomes more patient at the plate could develop into a solid offensive player. He has power and he is also a base stealing threat, he stole 23 bases at AA Chattanooga. Unfortunately he has a high CS ratio.

As for fielding…the young Canadian needs to find new leather tools.

The man is a sieve. So maybe predicting ROY was going a little overboard.

Oh well more on Joey Votto.
