Then you're looking at Paul Bako to get them in.
AND, then everyone would complaing that Votto "took" the Walk, just like his mentor Adam Dunn
In that situation, Valentin, probably the Reds best clutch hitter, would have pinch hit for Bako. Base loaded, one out, Javy at the plate is a situation you want to be in.
