I'm not saying that Votto will ever be the equal of Tony Perez but he remindes me of Big Doggie because he sort of flys beneith the radar. He's quiet, unassuming and doesn't get quoted a lot (unlike some players in Cincinnati). What he does do is go to work everyday, put up solid numbers and, if he hasn't already been recognized as the guy in the lineup that you really like up there in a run-scoring opportunity, you will soon.
He's a rock. Build on him.
