Redleg Nation would like to congratulate our Player of the Month for August, Joey Votto.
In a repeat of Votto’s late-season heroics in 2007, Votto had a superb August, hitting .382 with a .440 OBP and a slugging percentage of .513. He had four doubles, two homers, 18 RBI, and 9 runs scored. All in all, an excellent month capping off a good rookie year for a player who we hope to see in the middle of the Reds lineup for a long, long time.
Congratulations, Joey Votto!
