White Sox at Reds (7/2 - 7/4)

Page 2 of After splitting 2-2 with the division leader, I think that justified another start for me. Need the Reds to take care of business and keep things rolli... 110 comments | 22414 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Current NL OBP leaders:

    1.) Votto - .433
    6.) Suarez - .389
    9.) Winker - .383

    You have to go all the way back to 1976 to find three or more Cincinnati Reds hitters in the top 10 in on-base percentage. Morgan, Rose, Griffey, and Geronimo ranked 1, 3, 4, and 6. #Reds
    So this pretty much sums up that Hamilton should not be on this team next year right?

    Still fun to watch. Even with the drama. And it’s nice to see other teams make mistakes. I think we get blinded watching the Reds every day, but all teams make stupid mistakes every now and then.

    Votto finally swings at a pitch tonight with bases loaded. Problem is they had thrown 11 straight balls. Thought it was gonna cost Red legs. They’re playing good baseball and as I’ve said in other threads if healthy they rally for above 500. I just hope we don’t do any dumb trades.

    Joey entered that at-bat slashing .588/.940/1.088 (2.029 OPS) with a 3-0 count. 302 PA, 20-for-34

    This is good no doubt but you just have to know Baseball 101 or IQ that you don't swing on a 3-0 count, with bases loaded and tying run on third. Take a pitch in that situation is taught at every level especially after throwing that many balls in a row. Votto's is such a great hitter that he can hit on a 3-1 count just as good. If Votto would have hit a Grand Slam, I would have been happy, but it was bad Baseball.

    This is a quote from you from 6/22 (in the Cubs-Reds thread):

    Votto just struck out with the bases loaded and he never swung at a pitch. I just don't understand him. All of the pitches were border line and he never swung at any. Very passive instead of aggressive.

    Sounds like he was just taking you advice. I mean, come on. 3-0 is the ultimate hitter's count, and you've got a guy who's hitting nearly .600 in that count...and now he's getting bashed for swinging at a fastball down the middle. Geeez.

    Joey Votto has earned the right as a hitter to swing anytime he gets a pitch that he feels he can hit--especially given his performance with a 3-0 count.

    In baseball it is all about the situation. I realized players today don't go by the laws of baseball and Votto is the at the top of the list. He swings when he should take and takes when he needs to swing. I don't know if he gets it or don't give a crap. If you guys who think I am crazy, don't you remember your coach say we don't swing 3-0.
    The World Series announcers just talked about it how players swing in 2-0 and 3-0 counts. It is all about stats and not the team.

    Why? He not even the best hitter on the team this year. Scooter is. His stats on 3-1 are probably just as good.
