This is a quote from Joey Votto in a recent article on MLB.com

"I'm going to take advantage of the situation I'm in right now," Votto said. "I'm standing around Jeff Conine and Scott Hatteberg every single day listening to them and their stories and watching them go about their work. I have Ken Griffey Jr. in center field. Alex Gonzalez, one of the best defensive players in baseball, is at shortstop. I'd be a fool not to pay attention, watch and learn and add it to my own game. That's where I'm at here."

Yeah, there may be some politics involved in a statement like that but at least he recognizes his place and that his time will come.

Maybe he'll be a platoon with Hatte in 2008...maybe he'll start in 2008 and Hatte will back him up?
