Joey joined me for the full hour, from 7-8pm. He took calls, emails and Tweets. He discussed his offseason routine, his spot in the batting order, the individual stat he values the most, his views on leadership, learning to speak Spanish, his struggles at Dayton in 2003, preparing for pitchers, why he told Billy Hamilton that Billy is the first hitter to ever protect him, etc......

Joey told me his favorite personal stat is: wRC+
What does that actually mean? Here is an explanation.
From the Denver Post: Meet baseball's new superstar: wRC+.
HERE is a list of wRC+ leaders for 2013. Joey Votto was 5th.
