I think everyone will like this (http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/index.php/positional-power-rankings-first-base/) article.

Regarding Votto:


Obviously, he is the key player in the Reds “all-in” approach to 2012 and 2013, which is obviously geared around getting the most out of Votto before he hits a monster free agent payday.

Looking at the Angels first basemen, it almost seems as they went overkill at that position, lol. Pujols has 2 competent backups.

They have too many OFs, too. What a strange mix, who's toastier Wells or Abreu? Can Morales finally play again? Is Trumbo worth playing somewhere, and where else can he play? I think they might even have 3 catchers, too. You have to think they're going to need some of those roster spots for pitchers, although I don't know who might have options left.

Wow, I thought we would be top 10 but not 1 overall. Very nice find.

Reincarnation of the old Red Sox philosophy of finding an everyday spot for 3-4 first basemen.
