Sure I agree, but this one probably cost the team a win. I think there are times to sit a guy when it has less of a chance to cost the team. When Cueto is out there I would have my best line-up out there. This is when you are most likely to get a win - you need to take the for sure wins. I disagree with how Votto was used tonight on many different levels.
