    Joey Votto: Run Producer

    Here's a pretty interesting article about Votto's run production this year.

    I found this graph interesting:

    The simple fact is Votto is both disciplined and good. Because of the discipline, heíll work a lot of counts and heíll draw a lot of walks. Because of the talent, sometimes heíll be pitched around in bigger spots. This year, with runners in scoring position ó and excluding intentional walks ó Votto has seen the fourth-lowest strike rate in baseball. Thatís strike rate, not zone rate, but clearly, Votto isnít seeing pitchers aggressively pound the zone. Theyíre aware of what he can do, and they donít want for him to beat them.
