Bruce and Phillips RBI production is very very similar except BP's ridiculous 1.474 OPS in bases loaded situations where he's produced 24 RBI....Bruce is just 4/17 but 12 RBI
The only other decent difference was Phillips has 44 AB with a runner on 3rd and less than 2 outs and to Frazier's 31 AB
Maybe this year Phillips gets better pitches to hit, but these strikeout percentages are fairly consistent over a pretty long stretch. BP has played quite awhile and his K rates are usually fairly low, certainly compared to Bruce.
Frankly, I don't know what this thread is really about anymore so I'll go my way. I find it odd that we are in a discussion about Joey Votto's hitting. Most of the Reds don't belong in the same stadium, or the same league, as Votto, who is a wonderful and consistent hitter.

"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."
Votto's numbers are going to wind up looking just about like they always do.
Rounding third and heading for home...
