A quick question/observation. I know a bunch of folks had some spirited discussions on what Votto's power potential might be in Cincy in the minor league forum last year and in this forum during spring training. I was on the side of 25-30 someday. I guess my wonder is this...does that 466 foot monster blast a few nights ago put people who were skeptical of his power potential more at ease? That's a massive shot for most humans, even most humans in the major leagues. Seems to me a guy with that kind of raw power can reach the seats fairly consistently.

I am also loving his approach at the plate right now. He goes with pitches very confidently, and is using the opposite field to great effect. We will see homeruns to left, shortly, I believe.
