View Full Version : Great Combination of Votto and Choo

Votto and Choo are #1 and #2 in BB and OBP in MLB and also in NP.
*NP(The total number of pitches thrown during all of the batter's plate appearances)

Although Votto is a notch above Choo, they are very similar type of player in terms of approach at the plate.
Both of them have an opposite-field approach along with good opposite field power and have a great plate discipline.
In O-Swing%, Choo: 19.9%(#6) Votto: 21.2%(#11)

.......and yet we're going to let Choo walk in free agency.

Choo was brought in as a one-year rental from the start, and because anything was better than Stubbs in pursuit of a championship. Nobody is going to let Choo "walk away." Pete says Choo will walk away on his own quite nicely.

No one wants to lose Choo, but it's unlikely we'll be able to afford him (esp if he keeps up this production through the rest of the season). Enjoy him while he's here.
