    Joey Votto is a lucky hitter



    Why don't we trade him now that his value is higher than it should be?

    Because everyone knows hes not a .360 hitter and it isnt possible to keep a .410 BABIP because he has been lucky.

    Let me guess you dont understand how BABIP works do you?

    I know how BABIP works.

    I'm just wondering why everyone is defending 1 guy for being "unlucky" and yet no one is saying anything about another guy being "lucky."

    I'm just trying to provide a balance of views on these boards.

    Because a non lucky Votto is still quite good. Hes just playing at a freakish level right now because of luck.

    This is stupid. Is Pujols lucky? Some players must be consistently lucky every year, and others are unlucky. Poor Poor Edwin and Willy Taveras must be unlucky all the time lol.

    Have you not been reading the thoughts of the majority of most Reds fans on this board defending mediocre/awful hitting of 1 player?

    So should we be bashing Joey Votto? I'm not sure the purpose of this thread is.

    these things have a way of evening out eventually. Joey will be a .285 hitter and Jay will hit .260.

    Votto isn't a 285 hitter, he hit 297 his rookie year. This thread is stupid.

    I'm with ya, Cromer. Stat geeks get out of hand at times. I agree that stats have their place, but to say a .209 hitter is mainly unlucky is laughable. You can tell who has played the game and who hasn't.
