"It's been a while," Votto said, per MLB.com. "A couple of weeks ago, I lost my wallet. I have a green card in there, and my driver's license, credit card and cash and everything. I didn't know where it was for, like, two weeks. You ever lose your wallet? It's so annoying, right? Then finally, I found it. It was in my car -- one of the door compartments. That's how I feel with my swing -- I finally found my wallet."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

He is, however, having a renaissance year in regard to power. He has seven home runs in 77 at-bats after nailing just six in 220 at-bats in 2014.
