    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    When everyone else on the team starts hitting .320 we can start worrying about "fixing" Votto. Until then there are certainly bigger fish to fry.
    I've said all winter they talk about this team winning the division and my comment is, they won't win it because, at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up. - Marty Brennaman

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    I'd like Marty to produce evidence that Miggy actually does what he says he does. Then I'd like for him to explain why that approach, if it is what he actually does vs. what Marty thinks he does because someone else told him that is how he drives in a lot of runs, might not work for every best hitter on each and every team. Then maybe I'd respect his opinion.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    Other than Yogi Berra and Vlad Guerrero (and maybe not even them), what hitters have ever been consistently effective swinging at pitches outside the strike zone?
    Apart from Marty of course.

    One day people will understand that producing runs isn't having RBI. I hope that day is soon.

    The #1 part of producing runs in getting on base. No one in the NL does it better than Joey Votto.

    Oh please Votto isn't even #1 on the Reds in OBP- he is third behind Ludwick and Manny Parra! (4th if you count Zach Duke) Even Greinke is ahead of him!
    there are even three guys called Zach(k) ahead of Votto. None called Cozart however.

    This is it, folks.

    This is the stupidest thing ever posted on Redszone. The worst of the worst.

    Bask in the glory of its abject wrongness.

    On-Base Percentage - Best in the NL
    Slugging - 10th best in the NL

    He gets paid to do a lot of things. He hits, walks, gets on base and slugs better than just about anyone in the NL. But hey, focus on one thing he is really good at, complain about it despite the fact that it is actually a very good thing to be good at, and ignore the other things he does better than just about everyone else in the league. Seems reasonable. Or not.

    While we're citing stupid stats, Joey Votto's average is .317, 4th in the NL.
