That he still ranks so highly despite the small drought is a testament to how stellar the 33-year-old was for most of the season's first three-plus months. There was some consternation when Votto's average recently dipped below .300 -- again, first-world fantasy owner problems -- but he's back above the mark in recent days, slashing .303/.428/.584 overall.
