Last week when the pitchers and catchers reported I created an awesome graph for the group. Yesterday it was report day for the rest of the 40-man roster and non-roster invitees. Everyone made it to Goodyear on time with the lone exception of Sebastian Elizalde, who had some of his paperwork held up due to his participation in the Caribbean Series – but should be arriving soon.

While every single pitcher and catcher in camp with the Cincinnati Reds is younger than I am, that isn’t true for the position players. Joey Votto is older than I am by seven months. And I love him for that. Here’s the chart for the birth dates of the non-catcher position players in big league camp this year.

You can click on the graph to see a larger version to get a better look at the players (which may depend on how you are viewing the site).

There’s a pretty big gap between the Joey Votto/Cliff Pennington group up to the Adam Duvall/Phil Gosselin group. It’s that next tier though that doesn’t really see another big gap until you get to the Nick Senzel/Jose Siri/Shed Long grouping at the very end.

Like the post last week, there’s not a ton to this. It’s just a fun little chart that I created and wanted to share.

    We love Joey Votto. Glad to see he is getting a little frustrated at the pace of the rebuild. Hopefully that is a shot across the bow of the Reds front office. The problem is will the front office recognize it or continue to be oblivious.

      The problem isn’t that they don’t know or that they don’t care. The problem is there’s only one way to do this, and they are going down that path, and it takes time. Unless the owners want to start spending significantly more money than they’ve ever spent before, and are willing to consistently do it, you stay the course.

    They are all, even Joey, much younger than I am. But then most of the players have been for quite awhile.
