Votto being Votto

This is quickly turning into a Joey Votto blog. (The other two Votto Interviews are still to come.) Whether it's an admiration for the science of hitting, and Votto's mastery of it, or parodies of his eccentric personality, Votto provides much material.

This is a GREAT breakdown of a game Joey Votto had against Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals on August 2. Votto saw 15 pitches that day. 10 were balls, and Votto swung at zero of them. Of the five strikes he saw, he swung at four.

He was 4-for-4 on the day.

And since it's fangraphs, they show you a GIF of all 15 pitches. :)
