What else can be said about Joey Votto right now? Another homer while fighting the dizziness and inner ear infection. He was 0-for-3 vs. Roy Oswalt with two Ks but slugged a 1-0 fastball in the seventh from Tim Byrdak into the first row of left field seats for the game-winning two-run homer in a 6-4 Reds win.

“The coaching staff and the training staff probably has been the important part,” Votto said of his ability to play through his issues. “All the doctors that they’ve used have been perfect for me. I definitely couldn’t have done it without their help. Today was probably the first game that I felt pretty good. I have to do it again tomorrow.”

Votto is batting .364 and came in leading the NL in hitting.

“It’s amazing what he’s doing and what he might do,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “I’m just glad we’ve got him.”


I’m glad that Votto is back and feeling much better.


I think that Votto is the most clutch player on this team since Barry Larkin. He seems to have that “quiet leader” quality to him. Maybe he is different inside the clubhouse? I hope he is someone that the other guys look up to, because he get’s it. Big time.Russhttp://wight4256.mlblogs.com

I completely agree, Mark. Votto is great! I appreciate his humility and meekness. He’s definitely a player I like my children looking up to.

Yeah, Russel, he is one of those quiet leaders, isn’t he? I don’t call him Canadian Cool for nothing.

Oops, I misspelled your name when it was right in front of me. My bad.
