Re: Votto leads the team in OPS with RISP
I understand. Slim you are right. It IS because he walks a lot. Then people who are his detractors say he needs to "expand his zone" which means, of course, swing at pitches that are bad pitches. Which means try to hit balls that likely cannot be hit well if at all which is stupid. Look at what happens when BP tries it. Foul, foul. Or lunging and missing. Not many hitters are a Vlad Guerrero and capable of hitting pitches out of the zone with authority. This insanity is led by the Reds announcers who crucify Votto every chance they get. I pointed out all this in the Votto for MVP thread but people misunderstood my post for criticism of Joey when I was just pointing out how the voters would criticize him because the writers who vote do NOT understand it either.
