Re: Joey Votto Is Starting to Heat Up
Well.... he's not coming on real strong. One week ago he was also hitting .260, so he's just holding his own (as opposed to Perez who raised his average 15 points in the same time frame)
But he did homer twice in that period, so it will be interesting to see if that is a trend. He hit 19 last year, so it seems both his average and power numbers will be down for the season unless he really goes crazy.
There is no way Votto will START in AAA next year. There is a 1b vaccum at AA so he'll start there next year. He really needs to step it up if he is going to be the Reds 1b of the future.
