That's the way it was said and that's the way I took it as well. I've heard that mentioned before as I noted and I don't buy it.
Now granted Votto is probably gonna knock the guy on first in as often as anyone else in the league does, but I'd still rather take my chances with a guy like Ludwick (average hitter) and a runner on 2nd, if we are just looking at that one batter to get the run home.
