    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    So, what if Votto had 19 home runs? Would you squeeze him into the 3 hole then, or does it have to be exactly 20?

    No Dusty would never do that. BP would be put there first.

    Homer Bailey is NAMED Homer. I say he hits 3rd.

    Like the joke.
    I think his grandpa was named Homer and his name is David, but he's called Homer for his granddad. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Sure. All we need to do is distract the home plate ump.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    Ok some of the spin offs were funny. However the point is still valid.

    Having your 3-hole hitter Choke up and be 1 hr away from 40th in the league.

    And then your 4-hole hitter 68th in the league in homers. in this ball park.

    Is not living up to your position in the order.

    How about this, name a playoff team this year that their 3 and 4 hole hitters have less than us. Im too lazy to look it up but im doubting it.

    My bet is most are crushing our 3 & 4 in the category combined. And again considering our ball park is extremely HR friendly we should be towards the top.

    How about doing your own research to support your own point?

    Barry Bonds use to choke up.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Re: Marty calling out Votto

    Just to prove him wrong quickly - I looked up one team that is leading their very tough division. The Reds opponent tonight: The Oakland A's.

    Lowrie - 8 home runs
    Cespedes - 17 home runs (not nearly as good of numbers as Votto apart from home runs)

    Aside from that quick pwn-job I just laid on your ridiculous point/question, if you are going to act like what you are saying is fact, back it up with stats you research yourself from now on.

    Votto: tied for 7th in SLG with .512

    I love home runs.

    But there are other ways to swing a dead cat.

    hahaha i like this one. Barry bonds also use to....lol

    You guys can act all you want like your the gods of knowledge when it comes to baseball. But marty who has more experience than any of us and he agrees with me.

    Ive also not stated anything was facts. Ive stated my opinion. My opinion is officially what i stated before. Votto is a great hitter. Hes just changed his approach drastically this year. And i dont particularly like it or agree with it. In terms of what would benefit this team the most.

    Im not saying he sucks. And neither was marty.

    Marty didn't play baseball more than I did. He certainly didn't play baseball more than some other guys on here who played in the minors and in college.

    Marty is an experienced broadcaster. He has never worked on the baseball side of things. He has never coached. He never played the game for money. He never worked as a scout or in a front office. He is no more qualified as some sort of baseball expert than I am, or you are.

    - makes claim

    - asks others to look up stats because he is lazy

    - proven wrong

    - says people that looked up stats he asked for are acting like "gods of knowledge" and he is right even though he was proven wrong immediately.

    Ok, makes sense...
