    Fangraphs: Positional Power Rankings: 1B

    I think everyone will like this article.

    Regarding Votto:

    Obviously, he is the key player in the Reds “all-in” approach to 2012 and 2013, which is obviously geared around getting the most out of Votto before he hits a monster free agent payday.

    Looking at the Angels first basemen, it almost seems as they went overkill at that position, lol. Pujols has 2 competent backups.

    They have too many OFs, too. What a strange mix, who's toastier Wells or Abreu? Can Morales finally play again? Is Trumbo worth playing somewhere, and where else can he play? I think they might even have 3 catchers, too. You have to think they're going to need some of those roster spots for pitchers, although I don't know who might have options left.

    Reincarnation of the old Red Sox philosophy of finding an everyday spot for 3-4 first basemen.
