    Votto is just not as good as ppl think

    last 55 games, 0 homers

    last 55 games, 13 rbi

    175 at bats

    no hr since june of 2012--- The last time the 250,000,000 dollar man hit a fly ball past the warning track.

    In the last 25 at bats where Votto has batted with 2 strikes he has 1 hit.

    Quarter Billion dollars for Hal Morris with a better walk rate.

    Reds fans seem to get mad when the facts are looking at them

    I'm as surprised as anyone by the numbers....but they are the numbers

    You realize his power was completely sapped last year after that injury, right?

    Lets give him a minute. He hit a triple off the top of the left field wall yesterday that showed good opposite field power. I'd wait until we play 25 or so with a healthy knee this year before we start questioning if he's lost his power.

    He just needs time to fully recover. And doesn't get pitched to so 6 games isn't a big sample . Just give him time. He is the best red we have had in a long time.

    Re: Votto is just not as good as ppl think

    Not only is the op true, but Votto also went from mid-July until late in the season last year without getting a single hit! And then he did the same thing from mid-October through March, at least in games that counted!

    I might also point out that if Votto really were as good as many here think, he would be in the rotation. He hasn't even been used out of the bullpen.

    Noticed you didn't mention his production before and after the knee injury. Clever troll.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    And since coming back from his injury, Votto produced an OBP over .500 and an OPS near 1.000. Chicks love the long ball, but not making outs is more important.
