    It's almost a certainty that he's going to go under the .300 mark in the second half of a season for the first time in 4 years and his power numbers are down. I think most people just want to know why he's struggling lately.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Agreed, and maybe Joey himself just needs a day or two.

    To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Expected. Way Over Sensitive About Any Criticism Of Votto's Struggles.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    And even if they don't outright blame Votto, most people do it passively aggressively by constantly saying "Why can't Votto do this? Why can't Votto do that?!?" and completely ignoring the lack of production from other ares on the club.
    The problem is All these othere players are nowhere near getting paid what Joey Votto is making. He was being paid to come up clutch which he has failed to do more times than not and now he couldnt even hit water if he fell out of a boat.

    they do so passively aggressively by only focusing on Votto's struggles but never saying a word about the black holes at other positions.

    Those 8 zillion posts about Heisey, Frazer, Itsuras, and Ondrusek notwithstanding.

    Ah yes, the "he's not paid to walk... he's paid to hit! And be clutch!!" argument.

    He's paid to be himself.
