Regarding Joey Votto being raw at first base. I saw him play about 20 games with Chatt last year and he made some sensational plays at 1b so he definately has the athleticism for it. But, I also saw him make some really bone headed plays that are indicative of him simply not knowing how to play the position yet. It seems that time and reps will fix that problem. I suspect the "raw" comment is more about his understanding of the position than his physical capability to play it.
