    You seem to indicate that Votto is a slap hitter or something. In every full season that Votto has played, he has posted at least 30 doubles and 24 HRs. That isn't quite elite power, but he can obviously hit the ball with authority when he gets a pitch that he can handle. Again, he is a great number three hitter and is probably one of the 2 or 3 best all around hitters in the game right now. Let's appreciate him for what he is. He combines high average with an unbelievable walk rate and solidly above average power numbers. He is a slightly below average runner, but seriously, he does so much so well and is a perennial MVP candidate.

    And FYI, Votto was pretty dang close to a triple crown in 2010 when he took home the NL MVP trophy.
