Really confused by all the Votto love on here... I know there's a lot of Reds fans around, but I don't think he makes a list of top 10 of hitters since 2000, let alone in history.
Guys I have above Votto who have played in the 2000s:
- Miguel Cabrera
- Manny Ramirez
- Chipper Jones
Just to name a few. I get his career isn't over yet, but come on.
Along with best hitters, I like to look at who had the best, pure swing. Guys like Robinson Cano and Manny Ramirez just look so natural swinging a baseball bat, it's like poetry. I could watch those two hit all day.
