Minor Moves Roundup: November 20

Since the last time we checked in on the market, the always hectic November 20 Rule 5 protection deadline passed, and as always, there were a flurry of minor moves to go along with it. The Cincinnati Reds remained active on the minor league free agency market bringing in three very solid pieces. The first one is a familiar face in Cincinnati, as outfielder Patrick Kivlehan will be back in 2018 on a minor league deal with a spring training invitation. Kivlehan got his first extended look in...

Reds add six players to 40-man roster ahead of Rule 5 Draft deadline

Protecting prospects is a precarious proposition. The deadline for MLB teams to add players to their 40-man rosters ahead of December’s Rule 5 Draft was today, and the Cincinnati Reds responded by adding six of their top minor league talents. Three position players and three relievers constituted the new wave of additions, and there were few real surprises. The infielders all carry a solid prospect reputation, probably highlighted by former 1st round pick Alex Blandino. Blandino, who has...

Reflecting on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot

The annual ritual of discussing the merits of recently retired baseball players is one of my favorite periods on the baseball calendar. And it’s a relatively new delight for me. I’m of the age now that I can clearly remember the entire careers of the players who are showing up on the ballot. I hardly had an opinion on Jack Morris because I don’t think I ever really watched him pitch. But I’ve followed Jim Thome since I was a kid. It’s sentimental, but it makes a difference.

Joey Votto is the most valuable player of my heart anyway

In which this humble bloghole scribe is unexpectedly not furious

Yesterday, in the run-up to the announcement of the Most Valuable Player awards, my friend and I hope yours Wick Terrell rolled his eyes and discretely gave the whole thing a middle finger. I think we all kinda expected that our man Joey Votto wasn’t going to win the thing, which he didn’t, and so Wick was all whatever about it.

I was much more sanguine than him. And to be clear, I’m normally just as nonplussed about...

Joey Votto falls short in National League MVP voting by just 2 votes

The first baseman fell to Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins in the 4th-closest NL MVP vote of all time. Joey Votto was close. He was oh, so close. In arguably his best season as a Cincinnati Red, the first baseman was just 2 votes shy of notching his second Most Valuable Player award, barely losing out to Marlins’ outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. This is the third time that Votto has finished in the top 3 in MVP voting in his career, winning the award in 2010 and getting third in 2015. While...
