It's incredible the amount of hate Votto gets.
They win and he does well = crickets.
They win and he struggles = "he's washed up, trade him, cut him, bench him."
They lose and he does well = "the rest of the team plays better without him."

I've never understood the hate for someone, seemingly because the amount of money he's being paid. Who cares? It's not your money, wouldn't you rather the player get the money than the higher ups? I promise, the game is more enjoyable to watch if you're just watching the game, rather than complaining about one individual and only focusing on him.
