Good stuff by Jerry Crasnick, on our guy Joey Votto.

Sheesh, I love this guy. You Reds fans need to understand that you have the opportunity to watch a genius bat, and he’s wearing a Cincinnati Reds uniform. I get the idea that most fans don’t realize what we have. We’re getting to watch this guy up close, every day. It’s an honor and a privilege, and you’ll tell your grandchildren about it one day.

Votto definitely cranks it up to 11, every single game.
