Votto's not getting a raw deal, folks.
You do know that the home park Votto plays in is a park that supresses singles, doubles, triples and HR right? Likewise, Cincinnati allows HR more than any park in baseball short of Philly and allows a fair share of doubles as well.
While I don't have a problem with Hatteberg at all as a player or a person, he will not be on the Reds next time it actually matters to be a Red. Votto should be getting at bats right now to be getting ready for that time.
Here is the way I look at Votto....
He is Scott Hatteberg with a few more strikeouts and a lot more power even though he is 14 years younger.
