    Joey Votto batting title math

    Votto is 39 PA short of qualifying. If he gets 15 in the last 3 games, he will need to add 24 outs to qualify. With that, he will need to go 11-15 for .337.

    10-12 if he walks 3 times, 9-9 if he walks six times. I know it does not mean that much, but it is something I will root for over the last 3 games. Posey is not playing today. If he gets 12 more abs with 2 hits, his average goes down to .332. A Votto batting title is possible.

    They should bat him leadoff to get a few more PAs. God knows our normal leadoff hitters won't use them properly.

    It would be interesting to see what SC would say about that.

    If not for that injury relapse, he would have had the PAs.

    Votto is a pro, he doesn't need to jam up his game to win trophies, it's not of his ilk.

    Heck with it. I know that Joey Votto has a higher OBP and SLG %; therefore, I am OK with Buster Posey winning this batting title thing.

    Put a nice shiny ring on his finger at the end of the month and the batting title won't matter that much.

    I mean maybe I would, he's awesome and a pretty handsome guy too, but does Ohio allow that kind of thing?
    "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."

    You can always exit Ohio and make it happen. Ohio just won't recognize it when you return.

    LOL, maybe someday there will be a wOBA/WAR/LD% title. Or the UZR-150 crown. Or for pitchers the Cy Young xFIP/SIERA award.

    But for now, it's the batting title. Too bad Joey had that second injury (the one that was a "minor" setback) or he could have won it.

    God, I hope not. The stats we have are fine. To further confuse the everyday fan base would push MLB back 10 years.
