Re: Joey Votto vs. Alex Gordon
I cringe whenever I hear a 1b compared to Casey. I want a power, run producer in the 1b slot, not a slap hitter.
Would there be a comparison between Gordon and Votto if Votto was a big name draftee? It seems like Gordon has long been the sexy name in the prospect ranks. Gordon was a big time College player who had a short time line to contributing in the majors. Votto was a lesser heard of Canadian which doesn't bode well for recognition. I would be willing to bet had Votto been an all american like Gordon he would be ranked quite a bit higher.
