What about OBP? Ok... he takes a walk.... AND????
Votto is getting his chances--he is second in the freaking league behind Phillips, and he only has 33 RBI to show for it. Wow.
87 of those PAs came with a man on first.
With "Men On," he has 13 IBB.
Here are some other fun splits for Votto:
Split PA OBP SLG OPS
--- 248 .427 .574 1.001
Men On 211 .441 .419 .860
RISP 124 .452 .451 .902
He also has 72 runs scored: 4th on all of baseball and 2nd in the NL. I guess quite a few of those runs came because of walks.
