The Reds season full of happenings and milestones will continue this Thursday when Reds superstar Joey Votto will appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The story will be written by Tom Verducci and will be titled ‘The Art of Crashing a Pennant Race’. It should be a great read and as you can see above, it’s a nasty looking cover that every Cincinnati Reds fan will need to own. In fact, we already have some of our scouts on the job of getting the issue signed for us by Mr. Votto.
Votto joins Ken Griffey Jr. (twice) and Eric Davis (1987ish) as two Reds who have graced the cover of SI in my our lifetime. Basically, this is how you know you’ve arrived.
