Joey Votto 2009 Upper Deck Goudey

Votto is Goudey

A guy who’s making a strong case that he should be the National League’s Most Valuable Player against a reliever (for a 47-93 team) with a 6-point ERA who just got promoted from Triple-A?

It almost doesn’t seem fair.

What about the bat drop and the look of pity on Votto’s face. Suitable for framing. Wow.

Not to be overlooked:

• We’ll take it; Votto’s first walk-off home run and a 7-game lead in the Central. But it was a CRIME that Volquez allowed one hit, walked one and struck out 10 in seven innings, left with a lead and didn’t get the win. That is a crying shame.

• They won’t talk about it a ton after a Votto walk-off in extra innings, but what a CLUTCH hit to lead off the bottom of the 9th by Ramon Hernandez. First pitch swinging, right up the middle. Way to put us in a position to get the game into extras. Big time, Ramon. And what a HUGE hit down the third-base line by Heisey. You wouldn’t know it just by looking at his .250 batting average and 16 runs batted in but this guy has delivered time and time again.
