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.
If they don't consistently give him pitches to hit (and who in their right mind would?) what do you propose he do? It's a two-way street.
In the height of his PED-induced HR binge, Bonds was similar. He didn't have monster RBI totals. I think he had one year with about 45 bombs and 90 RBI.
