Yea, you're right, but it made me go back and pull up some random September games, and Votto went to two strikes three or four times almost every game I looked at. For example, just pulled up the last game of September against Pittsburgh, and his at-bats were 0-2 groundout, 2-2 double, 2-2 strikeout, 2-1 single. Just interesting that he almost welcomes two strikes because he's worked so hard on that swing. You'd be hard-pressed to find a guy who works like Joey.
