Re: Marty calling out Votto

He thinks Votto got caught up in OBP and stated how that Miguel Cabrera expands his strike zone and will swing at a pitch a inch or two outside while Votto will take it.
Marty makes the same criticism of Votto that idiotic Boston sportswriters made of Ted Williams decades ago, advocating that the best hitter on the team swing at pitches outside the strike zone. Those Boston sportswriters were ignorant then and Marty is ignorant now.
