Default Who's the toughest hitter to get out?

I just have a simple question, bottom of the 9th, who's the hitter (current) that you would not want to face?

I'm going Braun or votto.
Both have great plate discipline and hit for good averages but have power mixed in as well

Posey was first to come to mind, however I think Joey Votto is the toughest out in baseball...

He's actually the reason I started this poll, just because that guy is so dang hard to get out

I am obviously biased but I would have to throw Braun onto that list. It is really hard to say who is the toughest, but I think he would have to be on the list. Reason being that he has such a long bat and he covers the plate so well because of it. Knocks it to all parts of the ballpark. But for a non-braun vote I would probably go with Cabrera or Votto

I'm usually a homer but I won't pick Justin Upton because he simply is NOT clutch. Not the kind of guy I'd want coming to the plate with two-out and runners in scoring position behind one in the game. He was never clutch with the D-Backs either.

I'd go with Miguel Cabrera. I believe he is the best pure hitter in baseball.

Votto. Look up the number of pop ups he's hit in his career (arguably the worst kind of contact).

Bases loaded or empty? Empty would be more power-related.
