Do we really think MLB teams would not have noticed this change to an atrocious swing and adjusted their pitching approach to him?
And gosh, how does Carlos Gonzalez get anything to hit? How does Ryan Braun do it?
This isn't about getting pitched around...Votto isn't even the most feared hitter in baseball...how on earth do good hitters ever do anything, apparently you just pitch around guys 100% of the time and voila, you shut them down!
