what is wrong with him....he only stole 1 base and had 3 home runs today. He should have had at least 3 stolen bases.

yeah screw Votto. I'm giving serious consideration to dropping him for Andruw Jones (he had a double today --- he's back!!!) :-B

I dont own him, but I'm curious to hear projections of Votto for the season. Saw that he hit for good (great, even) power in the minors, with decent speed to boot. I've noticed he's also hit as high as 4th in the Cincy line-up (although he was back at 5-6 today).
Looks like Baker is going to give him a fair shake too, especially after today.

Three letters: ISO.

Votto's ISO (Isolated Power) last year was .2262, just ahead of Vlad, Carlos Lee, David Wright, Justin Morneau, Hunter Pence, Torii Hunter, and Ken Griffey, among others.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

You wouldnt happen to have any other ISO hidden gems out there now would you?

Wrong. There's no way that he had three home runs. That's crazy talk.

Yeah Votto has been on fire. I mean over his last nine games prior to yesterday he was .192BA, 4R, 2RBI, 0HR, 0SB. He already had the MVP locked up.

I'm not saying Votto isn't good but that number was taken in 84 AB and is higer than his minor league ISO.

Bah. He was hitting about .290 with a OBP around .360 and 4HR's in 93 ABs on the season before yesterday. He was already a solid CI starter in mixed leagues and one of the top 5 rookies in baseball.
