Re: Joey Votto vs the Reds front office
It isn't just simplistic Reds fans - it also many Redszone posters who seem to think it is easy to just be a different type of hitter because you decide to be.
Quoted: "Votto is the biggest disappointment, for me, this year. His approach at the plate was like he was leading off rather than batting third. Weird."
Yep - just change your very successful approach Joey. Start swinging at everything and try to hit homers. That'll work. Right.
It is the manager's role to utilize each player where his strengths and talents best enhance the team. All the player can do is maximize his abilities. Joey Votto does that as well as any player in the game. Jocketty's comments have really disappointed me.
No - I am not from State Farm!
