Probably saves 10 to 15 or so outs as well. Hamilton can run when Phillips is up to see if he and Phillips can do some damage before Votto heads up there or can be the lead runner on a double steal after Votto walks and one of the others is up, but no running while Votto is hitting IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
