It’s been a hot minute since we got around to A Friday List here at Red Reporter. We’re talking weeks here, folks, as life and All Star breaks and deep-dives into chorizo recipes seemingly got in the way.
We’ve got one for you today, though, and thanks to the resident meatball chomper who has resided in the heart of the Cincinnati Reds lineup for more than a decade now, we’ve got some content for you, too.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, in a van down by the river, or just in Iowa, you’ve missed out on Joey Votto doing just about everything humanly possible to send baseball-occupied rockets into the stratosphere. It’s been a marvel to behold, frankly, and for those of us who are no longer young bucks, he actually looks as spry these days as he ever has. It’s the kind of career renaissance that should brighten your outlook on most anything regardless of peripheral news, but that it’s coincided - nay, driven the Reds into playoff contention has the round little bellies of Reds fans shaking like bowls full of jelly.
So, for this Friday, we look back at all 10 of the donks honked by the Hall of Fame bat of one Joey Votto during his recent 10-game bender.
