    Re: Walt interview (with Cunningham)

    I asked Walt Jocketty if Price is up to the task of disabusing Joey of the notion that a base on balls is as beneficial as a run scoring sacrifice fly.
    This is really ridiculous. You know how many times Joey Votto walked with a man on 3rd and less than 2 outs? 18 times. You know how many of those walks were intentional? 11. So, Joey Votto had a whopping 7 chances where he could have turned a walk into a sac fly or a run-scoring ground out. 7! Out of 726 PA's, the Reds are worried about less than 1% of those.

    Great piece of info. I'm curious, do you happen to know how many of those 7 teams:

    A. The runner on 3rd ended up scoring?
    B. Votto ended up scoring?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Wasn't one of them a walk-off homer?

    I have not gone that in-depth. For his career, Votto has 27 unintentional walks in 210 PA's with a man on 3rd and less than 2 outs. He has 3790 PA's, so, that's 7/10 of 1% of his PA's. This should be a non-issue.

    I want to start off by saying that I'm NOT in the "Votto should change his approach" crowd. However, I don't think Jocketty's comments were in regards to the number of times he ACTUALLY walked. I think it was more in reference to his approach while hitting in those situations (i.e. looking to draw a walk)

    The question was ridiculous. But I don't think for a minute that Jocketty or anyone else with the Reds is overly concerned with Votto hitting enough sac flies. I do think that they are concerned with Votto's overall approach.

    However, that's 210 run scoring chances. If Votto's approach lead to 25% fewer runs (not saying it did, but it very well could have) that would meant 52 less runs scored over that time period. That's close to a win a year. It's not insignificant.

    Then they are cray cray.

    Votto is a run creation machine.


    If I was Votto, with the security of a guaranteed LTC, I'd tell anyone trying to make him change his approach to pound sand.


    He has more leverage in the organization than anyone else, including ownership.

    This is faulty logic.

    It's possible that a walk in that situation decreases the chance of that run scoring in that plate apperance, but it also increases the the number of runs in subsuquent situations, including later innings ( by flipping the lineup over).

    Every non out event adds an additional plate apperance to the minimum 27.

    I am not sure where you are getting the 52 runs, but, Joey is a .365/.490/.584 career hitter w/a man on 3rd and less than 2 outs. I don't think that approach is leading to fewer runs being scored...
    Now, for 2013, he only hit .240ish, but again, we're talking, like 3 singles and a double to get him to his career average and slugging in that situation. I don't know that he really changed anything to his approach, you just can't hit .365 with a lot of power every year in such small samples.

    I think Walt had the right idea in the first post. Talk things over with Bryan about which lineup spot he thinks would be better with his approach.

    I don't think Walt ever really said Joey had to change his approach, just that third in the lineup might not be the best spot for him with his approach.
