Here what gets me with Votto (2012):
After 0-1: .284/.387/.458
After 1-0: .388/.569/.671
If you gave Votto a first pitch ball in 2012, he was basically prime, roided up Barry Bonds. If you got a strike on him first, here was merely Shin Soo Choo/Alex Gordon.
Do you have any perspective on how special of a "pure hitter" (whatever that means) Votto is Rick? I mean there have been more productive guys in the last 25 years, but there are few that I would rather watch hit than Joey. Am I totally biased or is he really incredible?
