Cincinnati Reds: good, bad, and ugly pitching awards

A lot of negative press has been thrown in the direction of the Cincinnati Reds pitching staff. But are these opinions too critical? Clearly, the 2016 Reds pitching performances did not provide the club with a winning record, and both the starting rotation and bullpen are equally worthy of criticism. Although several members on the staff are to blame for the club’s disappointing...

Joey Votto Is Playing With His Food

Hi! You read FanGraphs, so you probably like Joey Votto. As such, you’re probably aware that, two seasons in a row, now, Votto has gone crazy in the second half.

Unless, of course, they really wanted that No. 1 draft pick. There isn’t much to get excited about with a 62-84 season (although they’ve already won enough to avoid a 100-loss season, a real possibility at the start of the year)...
