Okay, so July wasn’t the best month to be a Reds fan, was it? It was, however, a pretty good month to be Johnny Cueto.

The votes have been tallied, and for the second consecutive month, Johnny Cueto has been named the Redleg Nation Player of the Month. In July, Cueto was brilliant once again: 2-2, 1.52 ERA, 41.1 IP, 1.06 WHIP. In voting by you, the Nation, Cueto collected fully 45% of the total.

The April 2011 RN Player of the Month, Joey Votto, finished second in the July voting. Votto received 26% after hitting .320/.386/.550 with 6 HR, 18 RBI, 5 doubles, 12 BB. Close behind was the flamethrower Aroldis Chapman (14 G, 15.1 IP, 1.17 ERA, 25:4 K:BB ratio, 0.39 WHIP), who received 23%.

Congrats, Johnny!
