Look it's hard to say anything bad about Votto's hitting. But he seems to not want the middle in to inside pitch at all. I think if he went with the pitch as you say he would be driving those pitches more to the right of center. It's just a fact that you have more power pulling the ball.
Maybe it would totally mess him up...I really don't know.
Can anybody think of another player that was/is similar to him, I can't.
