    Votto on hitting with Buster Olney

    Man, I could listen to this guy talk about hitting all day long. In today's Baseball Tonight podcast (a heck of a baseball podcast for those interested), Joey talks about his hitting preparation and philosophy. One of the more interesting points he made was that he went through the entire rest of the season last year after his injury hitting with two strikes--ON PURPOSE. He felt like that gave him the best chance to get the ball in play, and explains why he didn't homer the rest of the year. The interview is part of a series of interviews with Votto on hitting that will be featured in ESPN the Magazine's MLB Preview issue. Can't wait to pick that up.

    Joey interview starts at about the 6:40 mark, but before that is an interview with Jon Fay where Fay says he still believes Aroldis will end up a starter. Which means plan on him being a closer.
