BEST PLAYER

1. Joey Votto, Reds

As impressive as Votto’s offensive production is, the fact that he’s been doing it alone recently in Cincinnati only enhances his performance. And Votto has been a model of consistency over the past decade, batting .313 with a .970 OPS while averaging 25 homers and 81 RBIs in 141 games. His peak seasons have far eclipsed even that.
