I posted about The Great One a while ago, but he’s been even more awesome since then. So it’s time again.
Joey Votto leads the league in doubles, walks, average, OBP, and SLG.
He is on pace to break the major league doubles record.
He has generated 4.7 WAR (fangraphs version). That puts him on pace for 11.5
Albert Pujols’ best total for a single season is 10.1.
If he continues at his current pace, he will have the best season by a hitter who isn’t Barry Bonds since
Willie Mays in 1965 Yaz in 1967.
I say it again. You do not know how good Joey Votto is.
