Casual baseball fans are probably wondering why someone who they barely know just signed the 4th biggest contract in Baseball history.

The Big Lead goes over the numbers to tell you why.

Votto, 27, has hit .313/.405/.550 since debuting for the Reds in 2007, averaging 28 home runs per season. He was the 2010 NL MVP. Votto doesn’t quite bring the power of fellow $200 million men Pujols or Fielder, but he’s neither 31 nor portly.
