But you are basing it on what is player is doing over 3 games, Cozart was 0-11 coming into this game, and has 2 HR's and 5 RBI's.
You base anything in baseball on 3 games and you are going to be disappointed. And you'd change the line up daily and likely be always catching up to a hot streak.
I don't care if Votto looks on or not, or whether or not he's gone hitless for 3 games. He's still likely to be our best hitter in that next AB.
