Joey Votto is no Omar Infante

5 07 2010

Omar Infante has hit 38 HR’s in his career.  Joey Votto is on a pace to hit that many this season. 

Omar Infante’s audition (stats vs. the Phillies): 6/17, 3 runs, 3 RBI, 2 walks
Joey Votto’s audition (stats vs. the Phillies): 6/13, 3 runs, 5 RBI, 2 HRs

Joey Votto is among league leaders in WAR, OBP, SLG, HR, RBI, and Runs Created.  Infante is among league leaders in, uh… undeserving All Star Game Appearances?


Help rectify this oversight and Vote Votto for the Final Man!

*UPDATED*  Manuel chose Infante because he wants a guy who can get on base and bunt.  Since Votto’s an OBP leader, that nullifies that arguement.  And as for bunting, well…

Picture perfect, right?

Vote Votto!

Sucks for Votto- he definitely has the numbers & he is the reason the Reds are where they’re at. Unfortunately, he plays the position where there’s always someone left off who’s deserving. Being a Braves fan, I gotta cheer for the surprise Infante! It’ll be interesting to see if Votto gets the final spot vote.
