Asked where his head is. Dude leads the NL in errors by a 1B. He's 11th in range factor.
OF COURSE he will begin destroying pitching again soon. But in the meantime he's making bonehead plays in the field and on the bases. And when I bring it up, I get piled on for questioning his skill. Dude is in a funk. I think everyone would agree on that. I'm asking if anyone has an idea as to why.
Again, never said the guy couldn't hit. But for all the praise he receives as a defensive whiz at 1B, he sure hasn't displayed that at all lately.
lol! Don't you know that you are NEVER to doubt Joey Votto on anything? Now, any other player is fair game. Folks can complain about any other player, coach, and especially the manager, if they have one bad game. But you are not allowed to question the fact that Votto has been in a funk that has lasted several games.
I am in 100% agreement with you, btw.
