Most RBIs in the NL and tied for most HR.
Also he beats out Votto in Runs scored, Hits, Doubles, Homeruns, RBI, Stolen Bases, SLG, OPS, and WAR.
Also he had 99 BB and hit for .302 vs Votto's 135 BB and hit for .305
We have to use wOBA instead of OPS and wRC+ instead of OPS+ because OPS is a considerably imprecise stat which is weighted in favor of slugging percentage(slugger) in spite of the fact that OBP(the high-OBP player) is much more important than SLG(the slugger) for the offense.
Votto: .400wOBA(.926OPS), 156wRC+(154OPS+)
Goldschmidt: .404wOBA(.952OPS), 156wRC+(160OPS+)
