  1. Clearing the bases: A's, Twins scoring runs

    Rob Neyer

    First base: Stats that don't make sense. And the team that has scored the most runs in the majors in June is ... the Oakland A's, with 90. With Brandon Moss hitting six home runs in 36 at-bats, the A's have hit 19 home runs in 16 games. Seth Smith is...

  2. Votto wins, and knows why

    Rob Neyer

    Hey, it's not just Brian Bannister and Zack Greinke anymore. Dig Joey Votto yesterday: "After the season, when I looked at my numbers and at Albert's numbers, I thought: 'Holy cow! He's beaten me in a lot of them," Votto said. "He beat me in runs, ...

  3. Votto's fine MVP choice ... but so is Pujols

    Rob Neyer

    I don't know that there's a great deal of suspense regarding today's announcement of the National League's Most Valuable Player Award. We had 19 voters in the SweetSpot Network Awards, and 15 of them went for Joey Votto. The other four first-place...

  4. Friday Filberts

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are vacationing near San Francisco, and can't help hoping the Padres pull off a miracle this weekend so there's more baseball on Monday ... With October dawning, Nick Nelson is concerned about Francisco Liriano and Carl Pavano, both...

  5. Reds' bench keys surprising season

    Rob Neyer

    When pondering the National League Central's shiny new champions, it's hard to miss Cincinnati's hitting stars: Joey Votto, Scott Rolen, and Jay Bruce. If you like a power/speed combination, you've probably appreciate Drew Stubbs. The Reds have just ...

  6. Don't hand out NL MVP quite yet

    Rob Neyer

    Dave Cameron on his National League MVP pick: I suggested that I'd lean toward voting for Troy Tulowitzki, and that was before he launched two more home runs on Saturday. His numbers in September are just crazy good (.357/.407/1.000, .577 wOBA),...

  7. Waiting for Joey Votto's first pop-up ...

    Rob Neyer

    Was reading some old posts in Dan Hennessey's Knuckleballs blog, and came across this: Justin Morneau, Miguel Cabrera, Joey Votto, and Josh Hamilton are simply in another league in terms of ability to hit a baseball. Easily the most valuable offens...

  8. The Reds' amazing transformation

    Rob Neyer

    Dipping into the ye olde mailbagge ... Noticed on your SweetSpot blog you said no one can match Pujols and Holliday in your argument for Cardinal supremecy over the Reds. I disagree with Pujols - Holliday part of the argument Joey Votto certainly h...

  9. Is Prince Albert still king of first basemen?

    Rob Neyer

    From the ol' mailbag: Hey Rob, saw where you called Joey Votto the best 1st basemen in the National League. That's just stupid. You tried to qualify it by saying "right now", to get rid of the precedent Albert Pujols has set. So I guess since Alber...

  10. Votto's great ... but still no Pujols

    Rob Neyer

    From the ubiquitous anonymous scout (via Buster Olney), a current take on Joey Votto: "I'd give him the Barry Bonds treatment right now. I wouldn't even pitch to him. Right now, he's more dangerous than Pujols . . . if he and Pujols were in the sam...

  11. Reds' Alonso no match for Votto

    Rob Neyer

    Ah, spring. When every talented prospect with a few weeks of Double-A experience is knocking on the door of the majors. And I'm afraid I'm assigned the unfortunate duty of knocking these tyros down a notch or two, until the Almighty (read: me) decide...

  12. A good year for first basemen

    Rob Neyer

    Worried that I've missed a big hitter this season, I just did an OPS sort of all the major leaguers. No big surprises at this point; after all, we've been following guys like Ben Zobrist and Troy Tulowitzki and Kendry Morales for some time....
