Interesting stuff from Fay.


Vottos something of a natural. Insiders in the Reds organization knew he would end up in the big leagues after seeing him put on a show at Cinergy Field a couple days after he was drafted in 2002.

Votto hones his craft. Hes one of the hardest workers on the team and he embraces the cerebral side of hitting.

What follows is a conversation with Votto about The At-Bat, the four or five times a day he steps in the box and battles a pitcher:

I spend all day preparing for each of them. Its a culmination of all my focus throughout the day that goes into that minute and a half or however long Im out there. I do my best to concentrate.
