- Joey Votto is doing all the work for a first base and will come in number 2
- Joey is going to hit, but with the catchers hitting so well, he is completely forgotten for what he does best. Votto’s BAA is 2nd among position and in the Top 25 Percentile with the Catchers.
- One thing that Votto did to win the NL MVP award was getting on base, has led that category in the MLB in 2010 and 2012. Votto has led the team in OBP from 2010-2013. Votto leads this category among position players in 2014 and in the Top 25 Percentile with the Catchers.
- Votto hasn’t managed to hit a lot, but what he has done is hit the ball to get on base, regardless of what type of hit it is. Votto is in the Top 25 Percentile with the Catchers.
- For Votto, getting on base helps, but the lack of extra base hits doesn’t help his cause to become Number 1 in OPS, but will be in the Top 25 Percentile with the Catchers.
