    I am sure there are 12 year old girls bigger than Justin Bieber.

    Oh, you meant in popularity? My bad.

    Guess how many infield fly balls Joey has hit this year? Guess, don't look it up.
    I know that for a long time it as 0, so my guess is 2.

    This is an interesting thread. TRF's "a tick below Pujols" is a nice call.

    The term that comes to my mind about Votto is that he's a budding superstar. Emerging as we speak.

    This is his break-out season, at least on the national scene.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    In Cincinnati of all places. Our little big town.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Zero? Do you mean in the actual infield or are you including foul outs or flyouts in the short outfield caught by infielders? If you're telling me he hasn't flied out to any infielder all year, that's just stupid...

    Votto's list of accomplishments to date is as long as it is impressive. And me, I'm here to add one more thing that I suppose you can slide in somewhere near the bottom. Because while this isn't the most meaningful of statistics, I think it's worth noting that, of the 153 batters who had made at least 400 trips to the plate so far this season, Joey Votto is the only one who has yet to hit a single infield fly.

    I know I saw Votto hit a foul pop-up caught by the 3B during the Royals series.

    Pretty remarkable stat though.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Some sort of cross sport power ranking that ESPN does has Votto ranked #1.I think they are suggesting that Joey is currently the best, not just at what he does but best athlete in all of sports.Maybe they're just ranking the most popular at this time.Check out #20.
