NL Rookie of the Year-Soto vs. Votto

Since the Reds and Cubbies have split the first two games of their series, I thought we could compare my leaders for NL Rookie of the Year.

Geovany Soto-C (Cubs) .292/21/80 33 doubles 113 K/57 BB in 455 at-bats. On-base .369 Slugging .512.

Joey Votto-1B (Reds) .294/18/70 25 doubles 88 K/47 BB in 452 at-bats. On-base % .363 Slugging .478.

I bet you may not have known the stats were that close. The fact that the Cubs are in 1st place gives Soto a big edge. This one should come down to the final weeks of the season. Let's go Joey V.
