Re: Who will have the better career...Votto or Bruce?
Votto will be a better average hitter with a higher OBP. I think Bruce will put up better power numbers but lack a little in the average and OBP. Votto at this point in his career looks to be in complete control at the plate. Bruce, while younger, looks lost. I think the main difference between Votto and Bruce right now is that Bruce gives up too many swings. He makes outs on hitters pitches and he constantly is behind in the count. If Bruce needs to change this before he takes that next step.
IMO if both stay at their current positions they will become the GG caliber there. If Votto moves to LF then Bruce will have a huge advantage defensively. Votto has the ability to become Pujols or Lee like at 1b which is a very very good thing.
