I know Soto is the odds-on favorite, especially with his team set to make a WS run, but there lines are very similar:



G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS
127 449 60 132 32 2 21 80 57 112 0 0 .294 .371 .514 .886
129 445 54 131 24 2 17 67 44 87 5 5 .294 .360 .472 .832


Who's who? I'll give you a hint - the guy with more Power and K's sits behind the plate.

I think Votto will have the better career, and if he could take a few more BB's, he'd be spectacular. I think he already leads all rookies with most multi-hit games (for sure 3+hit games).

He doesn't get any press, so probably a long shot, but IF we were making ANY noise - other than a Giant Sucking Sound - as an organization, he'd be up there for sure.

Thoughts?

I think especially with their numbers so close, that Soto being a catcher gives him a huge edge.

Soto will probably win it due to the Cubs factor but Joey should still get quite a few votes because of the solid year he's had this season. If I had my way he'd win the award for sure but I don't get a vote, LOL :lol:

Soto has slightly better numbers at a much more premium position. I'd say it should definitely go to him.

Soto all the way here I would think.

the fact that Soto is one of the best defensive catchers in the N.L. and that hes just about even in every offensive category makes him a better choice for the award

Votto would have to Andre Dawson type number(1987) to even be considered...not gonna happen

Soto wins, hands down. Soto plays for the Cubs, arguably the best team in baseball and has handled their pitching staff admirably. Votto plays for a very bad team and doesn't get the publicity and recognition Soto does. Soto established a name for himself early in the year by coming out of the gates strong. For a reason I can't understand Votto was platooned early in the year. In my mind Votto may be the Reds' MVP this year (Volquez as pitcher) and may be the better than Soto in the long term.
