    My M/O is to discuss baseball in a reasoned manner that may involve probing the reasons for a conclusion. If you are unwilling to defend your conclusions in a civil manner without invitations to make things phyical then I'd suggest the ignore function is even more appropriate than PMs.

    Again if uncomfortable and unsure at the plate is a 500 obp I hope all the Reds hitters look like that. They will win a lot of games.

    So far this April, Votto's slash line is:

    .284/.441/.488/.929

    In 2010, the year he won MVP, it was:

    .275/.404/.500/.904

    So far in May:

    .441/.535/.661


    This seems pretty good. Though, his OB% is less than 100 points higher than his BA. He needs to walk more!

    I think we need to revisit the Votto for Erik Bedard trade

    Re: Anyone else becoming concerned with Votto

    I noticed he slid feet first into home when he scored on the wild pitch today, something it seemed like he avoided whenever possible after suffering his injury like that last year. Seems like a great sign to me.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Anyone else becoming concerned with Votto

    Even an unhealthy Votto is an OBP and singles machine, as last year proved. A healthy Votto is a pitcher's nightmare.

    When the season started, they were just walking him, but began testing the waters a little to see if he was still the same hitter. He faltered a little. It appears he's back.
