Frazier and Votto come up big for the #Reds

3B Todd Frazier and 1B Joey Votto both hit home runs for the Cincinnati Reds in the 4-3 win over Colorado Rockies yesterday. Frazier’s blast was a bomb! Votto’s was another great home run against a left handed pitcher. (Something he has done a lot of this season.) Votto is seeing the ball great against left handed pitchers this season which makes me wonder if managers are going to start just leaving right handed pitchers in to face him instead of bringing in a left handed pitcher out of the bullpen.

Frazier's Blast!

Frazier likes it down the middle!

Votto's Blast

Votto likes it down the middle too!

Late spring [blog] cleaning

With snow still on the ground here I am a little late with posts and with cleaning. I have finally come around to cleaning up the blog and will continue to clean it up as the days go on. Cincinnati Reds have a great team this season and I am really loving Choo at the top of the order. Votto and Choo fighting for the best OBP is a lot of fun to watch everyday. And I now say without a lie that I really enjoy watching Homer Bailey pitch now. He has really matured and become the top of the rotation kind of pitcher many Reds said he would. Go #Reds
