Yeah, gotta admit that I had some false hopes after the Giants series and then winning game 1 vs. Dodgers, like maybe a 9-2 type road trip. Then the bats went to sleep. It's been a very frustrating season. And I haven't really looked at the stats, but just from checking box scores and the occasional Reds game I get to see on TV, it seems like Votto is striking out at a greater pace than he's done in the past. Then again you could probably say that for a few players this year.
