Well I'm not biased or anything but... let's start with credit where credit is due.  Votto's played 12 seasons in the MLB, from age 23 to 34, and averaged: 572 AB: .311/.427, 28 HR, 92 RBI, 96 R,

In watching the clip above, it appears he's trying to play a different sport

Might not be a benching.  Maybe Votto tweaked himself during his sword-fighting pantomimes in-between pitches.

No, the start of this season is a continued deterioration of his skills that are clearly visible from the entirety of last season's batted ball data. Player's performance levels generally follow a bell curve so this is the continuation of that downward trend starting in 2018.

A bell curve is a GENERAL truth. The real truth is that both growth and decline are not linear from a year to year basis.

He's not even being unlucky so far this season. He has been lucky....

His xBA is .201

His xSLG is .390

His xwOBA .308

His LD% is 6% below his career average. His K% is 8% above career average.

I don't know what to do with him at this point tbh.  I feel like he's not drop worthy and can't imagine anyone wants him so I think he rides the pine until things heat up?

 

I'd take a flier on him. But I'd imagine Votto owners would want more than a bag of balls, which is what I'd offer (let's say, last guy on my bench plus a closer).

He's produced relative "crap" for about a full season's worth of at bats between last season and the start of this one now.. it might be past the time for optimism at this point, 15 hrs with meh counting stats over the last 600ABs? Puzzling what happened/what's going on with him.

It's not THAT puzzling.  I mean, he's 35.

0 for freaking 7 yesterday. I’m not someone who overreacts to slow starts but my finger is getting closer and closer to the drop button for this guy. It’s kinda sad but he looks like a shell of his former self.  Just curious on how long others are holding out in non OBP leagues?
