    Just saw a stat:

    Joey Votto has had 244 runners on base for him, while Ryan Howard has had 316. There is the disparity in the RBI stat.

    That's why I prefer OBI% to RBI.

    Howard and Votto are pretty much neck and neck in terms of the percentage of others they drive in.

    Mid-game update:

    Votto 1st in BA (.326) to Furcal (.321), 1st in HR (27) to a 3-way tie for 2nd (24) and 3rd in RBI (72) to Howard's 81.

    Votto first in Ave/OBP/Slg. The real triple crown in my book. Ist in HR to boot.

    Orlando Cabrera could be the reason Votto doesn't win the triple crown...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Very true. If Votto had someone in front of him getting on base at a .350 clip, he'd be probably right in line with Howard right now.

    According to gameday Howard left todays game with a ankle injury so Votto could pass him if Howard has to miss some significant time.

    Update on Howard.

    Ryan Howard (ankle) hopes to play in a few days.
    Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said he doesn't believe Howard will require a stint on the DL. Howard left Sunday's game in the first inning after jamming his left ankle while sliding back into second base. X-rays on Ryan Howard's left ankle and right elbow were negative. The X-rays on his elbow were for precautionary reasons, because he was hit by a pitch. It looks like Howard will miss at least the first half of this upcoming scoring period, so keep that in mind while making your fantasy lineup

    Great point. Here's a crazy stat:

    Reds hitting in #1 slot: .281 OBP
    Reds hitting in #8 slot: .351 OBP
    Reds hitting in #9 slot: .281 OBP

    I knew it was bad, but I didn't know it was that bad.

    With BP at leadoff and now it looks like Heisey batting 2nd Its possible. With Howard on the DL, th competition is Pujols, Hart and Wright. All four, including Votto, could pass Howard before he comes off the DL.

    But I really hop he isn't thinking about it too much. I'd rather he focus on getting the team into the playoffs.
    Suck it up cupcake.

    AL

    Miguel Cabrera 2nd in BA, t2nd in HR and 1st in RBI. Problem for him is he's .16 behind Hamilton in BA and a distant 7 homers behind Jose Bautista.

    NL

    Votto is 1st in BA (.323), 3rd in HR (29, 3 behind Pujols) and 2nd in RBI (86, 3 behind Pujols). So Votto is 3 solo jacks away from being a possible triple crown guy.

    Pujols is 4th in BA (.316), 1st in HR (32) and 1st in RBI (89).

    Good old-fashioned triple-crown, MVP, playoff chase going on between these two.

    Re: AL/NL Triple Crown Watch

    Update (through 6 innings in Pittsburgh)

    Votto: .326-31-90 | .423/.603/1.026
    Pujols: .320-33-92 | .412/.599/1.011

    Both viable triple crown candidates.

    The issue to watch is if Omar Infante continues hitting (.347) and gets to BA qualification (502 PAs). He has about 343 right now with 35 games remaining. He's now the starter for the Braves at 2nd.

    Pujols has been on fire. It is going to be tough for Votto to get this done. But what a fabulous season regardless.
