I purchased this photo a while ago and never took the time to scan the picture to post on the blog...until now. I have a few other autographed 8x10s in my collection, but this is probably my favorite. I've always been a huge fan of the "Red Surge" because he's not too flashy and his discipline at the plate is phenomenal. Did you know that Votto has only popped out 59 times since 2008? That's just insane. Votto reminds me a lot of Ted Williams when it comes to his approach on hitting. He's very patient and hardly swings at bad pitches. Just look at his numbers from last year: .314 BA, .459 OBP, .541 SLG, 1.000 OPS, 7.6 WAR! What more can I say.
