    Joey Baseball has 10 ribeyes in his last 14 games. That is on pace to knock in 116. Franchester can pipe down now.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I can't believe this post has sat here for five pages without anyone commenting on its brilliance.

    This is what Marty doesn't understand:

    Joey Votto is not Miguel Cabrera.

    Miguel Cabrera is great because he is a freak of nature. Watching him hit is like watching Eddie Van Halen play the guitar or Bobby Fischer play chess.

    Joey Votto is great because he is the smartest player on the field and has the best understanding of the strike zone in the majors.

    If Joey Votto tried to be like Miguel Cabrera I think his production would decline.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    lol at some of these posts defending VOTTO.

    Votto has pretty drastically changed his approach at the plate this season. I think thats pretty obvious.

    It changes him from a pretty damn stellar 3 hole hitter. To being an amazing 2 hole hitter.

    Nobody is saying he sucks. We just know what hes capable of. And i have no idea why he changed it up, to this choke up on the bat contact/Foul off until i get walked type hitter.

    Votto does become a defensive hitter with 2 strikes on him. Maybe he checked his stats with two strikes on him and adjusted. I read someone's post earlier that showed Votto's stats with 2 strikes and they seemed impressive. I wonder what those stats were last year. I don't know how to find them, otherwise I would post it, might be an interesting comparison.

    Actually, Votto's stats with 2 strikes in this year are worse than those in 2012.

    7th in the league in slugging, no #2 hitters around that group.

    Maybe folks should lower their steroid induced expectations and move with the game to the levels being produced today?

    Anything less than 20 hr's especially with a home field like GAPB.

    Does not = The reds 3 or 4 hole hitter either.
