This season it has been a Joey like year not the huge numbers people expected but in the top of the league in batting average and pretty much driving in key runs and clutch hits this first half of the season and also staying healthy so far is the key. It is Votto 4th all star selection of his career so congrats to Joey.

Phillips who was left out of the team last season which was a crime has been having a great start to the season leading the team in RBIs and is in top of the league in that category. Brandon is in the top of that majors in RBIs delivered in the 7th inning and on that’s all star material and his fielding well we all know he’s the best in his position. Congrats to Brandon its his 3rd all star selection of his career.

Aroldis Chapman was also selected to the team as an reserve so congrats to the Cuban missle. Good work by Reds country for voting Votto and Phillips to the game and for that are starting in it.
