I gotta say, this is a little surprising. Not a bad pick as Votto is one of the best in the game, but certainly not who came to my mind. I don't think he is that well known, but apparantly he is.
The guys who came to my mind were Verlander, Cabrera and Pujols, just because they seem to be pretty much household names at this point. I am not sure you could ask some random casual fan about Joey Votto and get much info about him. Just a little surprising as he isn't quite the biggest name out there yet.
