I think it's a valid question. Votto seems to be distracted. He seemingly musters all his concentration while he's at bat, but seems in another world at times during the rest of the game.
Couldn't he just be distracted because he's ... distracted? Not every blunder on the field needs to be tied to an existential crisis or anxiety about past injuries, right?
I just think at this point we are overanalyzing where we shouldn't be.
