    No knock on Howard, but I just think Joey is the better overall player.

    I think long term Votto has more upside...

    He didn't ask long term.

    Howard can be shut down by good LHP, hell even DRH and Bray I think can shut him down. Votto is a much tougher out.

    Joey Votto. "He's my guy".

    Votto is the overall best player. Howard, while good, strikes out far too much for my liking.

    Votto's overall the better player. He hit for more power (though howard was injuried some, haven't seen hr to ab ration). I'd also say he's much more clutch, 110% focus on every pitch.

    Votto K's a lot less than Howard. Both hit for power, but there are times where contact is key.

    In the interest of full disclosure, there is another guy at that position I would take a hard look at.....

    There isn't a first baseman in baseball I'd take over Votto. He has the total package you want from your star.

    There are obviously players close, and arguably better (Pujols). At Votto's age, I take him over the rest though. Just my 0.02

    Experience-wise, especially postseason experience, it's Howard. But this year ... right now ... it's Votto. Just look at the stats. If Votto isn't named NL MVP, he was robbed.
