Can't say much bad about Votto, but Hanley has done it longer and in a position that's in demand. Hanley is an easy pick here.

I'm not sure why anyone wouldn't love a .300 BA, 25 HR, and 30 SB out of a SS.

Pick Votto if you want, it's your draft.

I wouldn't be taking him in that spot but it's not like your thinking about Torii Hunter.

Think of it this way, if you reallly want him, you need to take him now, he won't make it back to you.

It's not crazy. If you really want Votto you should take him. He's not gonna be around after pick #6 so this is your shot at getting him. Don't draft a team you don't want! He's certainly a first rounder, and although Hanley has been a more proven first rounder, his lack of motivation in Florida scares me a little.

If you were looking to take Fielder, Howard, or Teix at pick #2 then yes, that's a crazy move. Votto or Miggy, not so crazy

I would rather have Miggy over Votto. That is if you don't want Hanley or Tulo in the first round.

I don't think Votto at #2 is optimal value, but Votto's still really good, so it's not the end of the world. I'd take both Hanley and Miggy over him (in that order) and would at least consider taking Lorgoria over him as well (call them a tier). I'll take Votto over Tulo though.

Just started a 10-team Roto Keeper and Votto was taken #2 behind Pujols.

I'm a Reds fan and love the guy, so I'm not going to bad-mouth him. My only concern is that he only has one year hitting over 30 HR: 24/25/37.

Whereas, Miggy has 7 years of 33/33/26/34/37/34/34/38.

I would just rather invest #2 in that track record. But as many have said, you want to enjoy the team you have, so Votto isn't the worst thing in the world.
