Joey Votto's Twitter presence has been nearly as elite as his hitting skills throughout the years, and that was the case again on Sunday.

As expected, the veteran Cincinnati Reds first baseman nailed his congratulations tweet on Ichiro Suzuki's induction into the Seattle Mariners' Hall of Fame.

Votto picked a good player to model himself after as a ballplayer, and it clearly paid off. Both Suzuki and Votto are regarded as two of the best hitters of the 2000s, with both winning MVPs and earning numerous accolades throughout their careers.

As for Votto's generous pizza offer, that's a reference to the time Votto sent Suzuki 51 pizzas before a game between the two players in 2016, when Suzuki was with the Miami Marlins. Votto was apparently returning the favor after Suzuki sent him donuts.

So Suzuki better clear out his fridge, because he's going to have a lot of leftovers.
