Joey Votto

first_imgI might be in a minority, but I am not sure if Joey Votto is still pulling his total weight with the Cincinnati Reds.  No one can argue about his ability to get on base; however, for the last couple of months, it has been through walks and not hits.  (I am not referring to the last 2 weeks when he has been injured.)  He is also not hitting with any power this year.When Votto gets on base, he is so slow that if Hamilton batted behind him, Hamilton would likely run past him without thinking.  One of the Reds’ announcers with Votto on second base said “it may take a double to get him home.”  I don’t know if it is a medicine that Votto supposedly takes, but at times he seems to be totally oblivious of the game on the field.  I think he has been picked off of base more than any Red this year, and he seldom gets more than 2 steps off the base.  I know the Reds are in a bind if they thought about trading him.  He has been with the Reds long enough that he can veto any trade and few teams would be willing to pick up his salary.As I said at the start, this is just my opinion!last_img read more

‘Throw your weight behind Black Stars’- Herbert Mensah

first_imgFormer chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Herbert Kwabena Amponsah Mensah has urged Ghanaians to rally their support behind the Black Stars of Ghana and cheer them to victory in ongoing 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.According to the President of the Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), everyone should forgive and forget about what happens in Brazil and stand proud as a patriotic Ghanaian and  support the  4 times Africa champions.The Black Stars are said   not enjoying the massive support they used to get some time back ahead of their AFCON 2015 opener against the Teranga Lions of Senegal.This is as a result of their abysmal performance they displayed during the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup when government of Ghana had to airlift over $4m to the team camp to settle appearance fees of the players because they had refused to train on 2 occasions before Ghana played against Portugal in Brasilia.In an exclusive interview with Kwadwo Mensah Moshosho, the host of Asempa FM’s Ultimate Sports Morning Show on Monday, the experience football administrator advised Ghanaians to put their differences behind them and be patriotic enough to support Black Stars to victory“I will like to say that we are Ghanaians, let us put on the shirt of Ghana because it does not matter what you feel and how you about the players and the FA”. “This is the time we need to be patriotic and have to be proud as Ghanaians.  We can have our discussions behind the scenes but for the tournament let us put on our shirt as Ghanaians; go out and support the team”. He added.last_img read more
