Damn Dusty Baker is at it again, can he ruin a guys career, like he did with He Soop Choi in Chicago? LOL!!! Or is this nothing to worry about.
Reds manager Dusty Baker has already decided he doesn't like Joey Votto's approach at the plate.
The approach that led to a .321/.360/.548 line and 17 RBI in 84 at-bats following his callup last season. "He needs to swing some more," Baker said. "I talked to him about that. Strikeouts aren't the only criteria. I'd like to see him more aggressive." Baker doesn't want Votto, Adam Dunn or anyone else taking called third strikes. "I really, really hate the called third strike," Baker said. "I hate that. You're guess and you ain't ready to hit." That Scott Hatteberg rarely strikes out makes Votto a particularly risky pick this year.
I am a BIG TIME fan of Joey Votto, got him in my keeper league, and this worries me, should I drop him, @$3 and keep someone else? Gawd I hate Baker.....
