Votto was approached by a San Francisco Giants fan at Oracle Park during the Reds batting practice session. The fan– who luckily tape-recorded the experience via video– asked Votto if the Reds were a lock to score some very first inning runs. While those numbers will not all hold, theres some truth to the Reds being the finest breakout lineup in the video game, and maybe one we mustve seen coming.

Joey Votto only cares about winning baseball video games, not your baseball prop bets.
Votto was approached by a San Francisco Giants fan at Oracle Park during the Reds batting practice session. The fan– who fortunately taped the experience via video– asked Votto if the Reds were a lock to score some first inning runs. Given the team has been red-hot from the plate to start the season, that does not appear like a bad bet all things thought about. But Votto isnt your bookmaker, kid.
The 37-year-old Votto has actually seen it all, however this is likely the very first time he was approached by an opposing groups fan asking if the Reds would score on them. An early deficit is a problem for many fans in presence, but apparently not Greg.
The Reds have the very best offense in baseball through 10 video games.
The Reds lead all of baseball in runs, batting average, punching percentage and OPS. While those numbers wont all hold, theres some truth to the Reds being the finest breakout lineup in the video game, and perhaps one we need tove seen coming.
While 2020 was a terrible year for those really same lineup, it was a difficult project for many around baseball. 2019 was far different, and in a season with some predictability, 2021 has actually shown to be a little more reasonable. Just a week ago this offense scored 25 runs in 24 innings. The torrid pace isnt something weve seen in baseball in years.
For one fans sake, we hope it continues on Tuesday night in San Francisco.
