Guy is only human. Verducci wrote an article about it. Lots of criticism that he isn't being paid a fortune to walk. Team wasn't scoring that much.
I'm guessing all this has impacted Joey. Probably he's also trying to single handedly get the offense going and figures walks won't do that.
Personally, I hate for Votto to become overanxious at the plate. Hope he remains selective.
