I was joined this week by Joel Luckhaupt, who has been a frequent (and entertaining) guest over the years. Joel is the statistician for the Cincinnati Reds television broadcasts and author of two brilliant books about the ol’ Redlegs. We talked about the Jesse Winker non-troversy, Joey Votto’s brilliance in the broadcast booth, and the reasons that Reds fans should have some hope. (Yes, you have permission to be hopeful.)

    I think I’m one of the very few who was not a big fan of Votto in the booth. It was too much. Can there be too much? I think so. It was too much.

    1995 and 2012 are the best Reds Teams I saw…..if Votto didn’t get injured in June of 2012, the Reds would have won the WS.

      Johnny Cueto, the ace of the Red’s staff, was injured on the second pitch of the first playoff game against S.F. in 2012. They still had a good start winning the first two games and then losing three straight to S.F.
