    Which my response is the same thing to baseball people who say that. He has been literally doing that his whole career. No one said a word about it or why he does that, and now people are questioning it like it is a problem. It has never been a problem for his whole career.

    He is constantly working to keep his hands inside the baseball, which is what he is practicing with that swing. When Votto is at his best he is hitting the ball hard to the left-centerfield gap. That is what he is working on in this approach.

    If you watch and break the warmup swing down it is nearly perfect- minus the lack of follow through. The head stays still, hands work inside out, swing path is perfect, etc.
