    Check out the Louisville box score and see who played LF…interesting. And this might be why he’s suddenly hitting.

    Bill, I noticed the contact thing too, but the reason Votto is hitting isnt he isnt getting screwed by the baseball gods anymore and hits are falling in for him. He has been striking out a lot less, but his line drive rate is roughly the same from April to May, although he is hitting less ground balls and more flyballs by about an 8% difference from April to May.
