ISOP: Isolated power. This is basically (2B+2*3B+3*HR)/AB, i.e. it is the components of slugging not tied to a single. So what this says about Joey Votto is that he still hitting with some power, as his doubles, triples, and homeruns are still acceptable, but the singles aren't falling for him right now.
ISOD: This is simply the OBP-AVG, and is an estimate to the players discipline, that is, its a way of measuring how a guy gets on base without basehits. Votto has done ok here as well.
SEC=(2B+2*3B+3*HR+BB+SB-CS)/AB: So this is a stat to give a player a sort of average, (called secondary average hence the SEC), and "good" is typically .300.
Hope that helps.
