It's good to be Joey Votto

Joey Votto homered in the second inning today.

He seems to be an instant fan favorite. A big group of teen-age girls stood outside the Reds dugout and screamed when he arrived in the dugout before the game.

He's the third Red to homer for his first hit. The others:

Josh Hamilton, 4/10 at Arizona off Edgar Gonzalez
Ryan Jorgensen, 8/15 at Chicago off Rich Hill

Great job Joey Votto! Where you been?
Wouldn't it be nice if we could watch Votto, Bruce, Hopper and Keppinger for the rest of the season? Maybe even learn a little about what can be done for next season.

Krivsky and Mackanin manage this team like drunken monkeys trying to catch a footballs.

Then he whiffs on a ball from edwin.

Must be great to be Votto.

That just proves to me that Votto should of been with the team earlier. Another gem of a move by Wayne.

Votto good, Krivsky bad.

Drunken monkeys funny, fans who want to trade Votto for pitching, not funny.
