It's the type of question that we aren't going to arrive at any compelling conclusions about in this context. Hmmm... maybe he's having anxiety again? Maybe he's on PED's? Maybe his fiancťe is having career difficulty? (I kid on that one). Anyway, there isn't really any provable answer, and we're just headed down a rabbit hole with these possibilities for which the only real answer is, "Well, maybe!"
Now it's different if there is some sort of substantiated report that Votto is distracted. Then we have something to discuss. But at the moment, we are just engaging in pointless speculation IMO.
What discussion have we ever had on here that leads to a definitive answer?
May as well shut it down if that's the criteria for having a discussion because I can't remember it ever happening.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
