August has not been kind to him. 0 walks 22%k rate .219/.219/.250 for a .469 ops. He just needs to adjust to how they are pitching him especially righties. Could be lingering injuries too. I think he is improving in the OF.
He is like the rest of the team in that they need to improve their baserunning as a team.

Why are his spits the reverse of typical? I'm thinking he uses 3 pitches vs. lefties and just 2 against righties. If that is so, maybe its time to start using all 3 vs. righties.

I'm in favor of a no-hitter by Gray and perhaps Iggy.. and for Reds batters to score multiple runs in at least double digits followed by the same from Castillo and the hit parade to continue as well. Anyone in opposition can go straight to H E double tooth brushes.. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200 and NO FREE PARKING and your game piece will be a badly broken fingernail badly attached to an extremely painful little piece of skin!

Too much?

I think we’d have 5-6 more wins if we could get a runner home from 3rd with less than 2 outs. We’ve been awful at that this season. Do they keep up with that stat?

Joey needs to recalibrate his strike zone eye for when electronic strikes come to MLB, and learn that if it ticks the box, its a strike.

Seems to me that votto's batting is definitely gotten worse this year

There was a time I would have put even money that Votto would have gotten those runs in... Looked at strike 3 the other night with them loaded. He canít just look at those!

The thing is, he knew it was a strike. Actually it appeared to be outside of the box on the screen, but I saw a couple of nights ago Norm Chortleton claiming those aren't aligned perfectly straight or center. But regardless he dropped the bat and turned back to the dugout right away like he knew he'd struck out. Frustrating to be sure.

And even going back to the discussion from a couple of nights ago about not swinging at ball four, it gets very frustrating to see Votto look at strike three in critical situations again and again. You could almost make an argument that it was that very plate appearance that killed the Reds momentum in the first game of the series. Of course, Hernandez made sure to put the nail in the coffin.
