    Marty calling out Votto

    Marty was really hammering Votto on Cunningham's show today. Marty believes he is paid to produce runs and he's not doing it.

    Can we get Marty put under a gag order? He needs to go away.

    You guys are such a bunch of homers. Votto has not produced in the 3 hole and I am glad he is being called on it. If Votto was a 2 hole guy, I would have no problem with his numbers. How many times does Votto go 2 strikes? A lot. That is not his job. His is to hit first strikes over the fence or in the gap. He is not doing that. You guys love shooting down anyone who yells that the emperor is naked. Well keep dressing this pig gentlemen because if this keeps up, we will not be playing ball deep in to October.

    Marty, Marty, Marty...

    Yes, clearly Votto is the reason the Reds scored FIVE runs in the last five games....




    Why is he not pointing out that GIBP is hitting around the mendoza line since May? Or that there are THREE batters in the entire lineup hitting above .258...

    But yes...it's on Votto...hit more homers, Joey, swing at more balls out of the zone. You are the RUN producer, dude!

    *sigh*

    That could be it. Or it could possibly be that us "homers" don't have what I like to call "a fundamental lack of understanding of how baseball works."

    Votto has basically been the 2 hole hitter all year... he's been the second person in the lineup with a legitimate chance to get on base

    Maybe they should move him up to the two hole. Right now he's much more of a 2 than a 3. Bruce is the best player on this team right now and could hit cleanup. Choo, Votto, Phillips, Bruce.

    Listen, I love Jay Bruce. My fantasy baseball team is named after him . When I had to go to the ER the other night I wore my Bruce shirt just in case I died.

    Votto is out OPSing jay by 100 points. Votto is one of the two or three best players in the league This Year.

    Jay is in the top 15, but he's not Joey
    "But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."

    He's had the second worst regular positional player hitting in front of him most of the year...a .286 OBP....

    Phillips: .256 .310 .396 .706
    Votto: 317 .431 .504 .934

    Phillips has 80 something RBI's because he has Choo and Votto hitting ahead of him. He isn't even league average in OPS....

    Give it a rest and go worship Joe Carter.
