He's got 18 after 79 games and is tied for the most in the NL.

No I don't think so.

Even a bigger queston, will Rod Barrjas (11) end up with more than Ryan Braun (10)

Nah I'd say he will end up with 32-33, just a hunch. I'm thinking he won't get pitched to as much the later it gets.

If Rolen keeps hitting, won't be all that easy to pitch around him.

Man, I love watching Votto play.

40? Nah. 35 is a real possibility though.

Not only do I think people will prefer to face Votto more than Rolen later on but I also forgot to add 46 home games the 1st half and only 33 road games so far. 2 more games to go at the halfway point puts us at 46 home games and 35 road.

I expect Votto will end up with around 32-34 HRs.

Bigger qusetion is if Rolen will stay healthy enough (and productive enough) to join him in the +30 crowd. It'd be huge if the team could mine 30+ from Votto, 30+ from Rolen, and 25 from Bruce.

40 is probably his ceiling but I could see him touching it a time or two in his career. I do think he's turning into a consistent 30-35 home run machine, though.

The fact that he isn't #1 in All-Star 1B voting tells me all I need to know about the current voting system. I know it's the fans game, but this is criminal.

It wouldn't surprise me too terribly much if Jay turned things on the 2nd half and got up over 30 homers as well.

Not if he keeps slumping.

I say no, and he won't need to.

30-35 homers and all other numbers progressing along the same plane they are now makes him an mvp candidate.

I'd say no. Or better yet, I'd put the chances at 20%. But it's pretty nice to know we've got a guy in the Gonzalez, Teixeira mold who is going to be around for awhile.

Yea if he continues this all year; I'd hope that contract isn't far behind that keeps him in Cincinnati until he's about 32.

Worth noting...14 of Joey's 71 career home runs have been against the Cubs...with 7 of those occurring at Wrigley Field.

Outside of GABP, his favorite hitting venue by far.

Joey Votto = Cub Killer :D It's about time we had someone who makes the other team's announcers go, "Oh crap, that guy's up to bat now", LOL :laugh: The next four games could be pretty darn fun for Joey at Wrigley this week especially since he seems to be seeing the ball well right now. :D

And I'd love to see him hit 40 HRs this year but I'd still be quite content with him hitting 30-35 of them by the end of the season as long as the rest of his stats are still up there. :)

Sounds like Votto is filling Dunn's shoes as Cub-Killer. Dunn raked at Wrigley.

Thanks, I think I needed the laugh.

Gomes, Phillips, and Stubbs all have a shot at 20+ as well.

I can understand Pujols as the #1 guy. But Howard, Glaus, & Fielder in front of Votto?

This might belong more in the all-star thread but, imo, Pujols should be 1a and Votto 1b.

Oh yeah, they NEED to lock him up and before next season.

21 now on the season. He is on pace to crack 40...but his 2nd half will have to be as good as his 1st half. He's missed about a full week with the neck issue and the ejection last night.

They used to say that about Larkin. Whenever he'd come up against the Cubs - especially in a big spot - they would say, "There's that man again." Warmed my heart. :D

26 now on the season. I think he has a legitimate shot at 40. It's going to be close.

I still think Votto can do it.

I think he can, but I'd put the over/under at 37.5. If I had to bet, I'd say he falls just short.

Will Votto have more homers than Dunn? Never would have thought that a year ago but who knows.

FWIW, Votto is projected by CBS (AccuScore) to get to about 39.5 homers.

I am tempted to take you on that bet, heh.

When you locals go to home games, ya'll better be chanting "MVP" when Joey comes up to bat.
