Page 2 of The Reds are now 1-18 in his starts. He's got a 3.8 WAR for his career. I know it is in hindsight, but is this the worst contract in Reds history? 6 ye... 64 comments | 2044 Views | Go to page 1 →

    I'm sure you were going to post that AUG has traditionally been a very strong month for Votto and that he spent most of the month sidelined with an injury. Sorry if I stole your thunder.

    The biggest thing I noticed is that a guy that hasn't been with the Reds in over a month still has more RBI's than Votto this season as a Red. But hey, Votto for President.

    9 homers and 57 RBI's are not good for a #3 hitter. His numbers are great for a #2 or lead off hitter however, where he should be hitting.

    Are fans supposed to turn their back on their team when things are down? I've been a Reds fan since '74, I don't see losing seasons changing that.

    If anyone thinks that he is the problem with the organization, then they have not been paying attention. I guarantee you, if we dropped him today, he would make a start for another team this year that has a better record then us.

    I'm not a betting man, but I'd take some of that action.

    He got the big contract because he pitched two. no hitters.
    I'm yet to hear the first person say something nice about him.
    I could feel bad for him if he were an upright guy, but that is obviously not the case.
    He's obviously mailed it in and can't wait until the Reds cut him loose.

    I have to think that if the Reds eat the whole contract they could trade him somewhere. But I don't believe Bob wants to trade him.

    So again, we are down to this ownership not wanting to win.

    I may be in the minority then of people that have met him but I've met Homer a few times and he's been nothing but pleasant each time.
