Right. Hatteberg makes zero sense for the O's. They're not a contender, he's a free agent at the end of the year, and they already have two other aging veteran first basemen.
Votto, on the other hand, makes a lot of sense for the Orioles.
"I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."
