    That said, he isn't his old self at the moment, but he's like pizza... even when he's bad, he's still pretty damn good

    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.

    Joey needs to step up that run production. He only leads the NL with 90 runs created. He needs to do more!!!

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    Did any of you encouraging Votto to swing at balls out of the zone happen to see BP's at-bat yesterday where he swung at ball 4, ball 5, and nearly went around on ball 6 about a foot away from the plate? You may call that doing his job, I call it awful.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    9 rbi's this month already, what more can he do?
    But I think today, he will drive in more than 2 runs for the 1st time this year.
    C'mon Joey, you can do it!

    He walked! If a walk is awful, your boy really stinks.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    Calling out may be a little strong. I heard the interview, Marty stated the obvious, that Votto is pace for 70-80 RBI's and "that is not going to get it done."

    He thinks Votto got caught up in OBP and stated how that Miguel Cabrera expands his strike zone and will swing at a pitch a inch or two outside while Votto will take it.

    That being said, I've always appreciated Marty telling what he thinks and not just what we want to hear.

    IMO, if be logical and realistic makes one a homer, its still ranks much high than a banana phone caller.

    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

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.
    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.
