Joey Votto had a claim at one time as the best hitter in baseball.

While most people know that he is good, they might not be aware this is a player who won the National League On Base Percentage Title fseven times (including four in a row from 2010 to 2014, batted over .300 eight times and is also a former Slugging Champion.  With that last accolade, the Canadian clearly has power as he has well over 200 Home Runs in a career that as of this writing has only been spent in Cincinnati.

While his MVP days may be behind him, Votto is still a very good player but there is a very large chasm for him to close before we can place him in the top five of this list.
