If Willy T or Phillips was in a slump like Mr. Votto currently finds himself in, this board would be FULL of posts calling for their heads. Why are there no such posts about Joey?

BTW, I'm no batting coach, but his head is ALL OVER THE PLACE when he swings right now. It can't be possible to 'keep your eye on the ball' when you look like a bobble-head at the plate!

Get it going Joey! This board loves you too much to see you struggle!

Willy T has shown himself to be mired in a season long slump because he isnt a major league caliber hitter now. Tavares is a joke, to even utter him when comparing Votto is a jjoke. When he even approaches Phillips type production tell me cause it will be the first time.

Joey showed that he belongs hitting in the majors. He's hitting what .330 with 17 HRs? I think that speaks for itself.

How could you possible have a personal vendeta against votto. He's been the smile amongst a thousand frowns this season.

Every player hits a cold streak. it will pass young one.

People need to realize Joey comes to bat alot now with two outs and no one on base. Maybe he is pressing or trying to do too much or maybe he is in a bit of a slump. Could be a combination of both.
Either way..Joey can hit. Put some guys in front who get on base and the pitches he sees will be alot better.

Please show me where I bashed Votto? I simply stated that if it were basically anyone else there would be a message board full of people calling for said player to be benched. I actually logged on today to read some of the poster's comments about Joey and was stunned when there were no threads going.

Again, I'll say it again, Get it going Joey, this board loves you too much to see you struggle....guess that's having a personal vendetta?

Willy T's slump has been career long:(

He's still hitting over 300! When those other players you mentioned slump they hit below 225.

You said he was lucky, not that he's not a .350 hitter, that's a big difference.

Come on, now. If Joey Votto is getting a little extra slack from the critics on this board...it's because he EARNED IT! the man has played all year like a superstar. :thumbup:

I do love that when Votto struggles he drops to 4th in the line up. :rolleyes:

I think should bench him or something for hitting above his career average.

Joey Votto's slumping over 50 some ABs is only .03 points of OPS worse than Taveras has been all year :bowrofl:
