Kinda what I thought Kal.Is his eyesight a little special? As you say,a lot like every great hitter,but an astounding thinker. Also he doesn't talk in cliches and he's honest.
To me his Eastwood look on each pitch,and his ability to foul off pitches capture my attention.
I don't know if I made it clear.I think all great hitters have more in common than not.But Votto is cerebral and he's "ours",making him more fun to listen to.
