I can believe it, it's just premature in my mind especially someone the caliber of person/player Votto is.
And to answer your previous question to me about who I'd rather trade, yes I'd rather trade all that unknown talent instead of a legit cornerstone. Not always would I but I feel Votto is the type of player you build around like as I expressed before a Jeter, a Varitek type. Plus we would be receiving a legit SS who is young and a nice productive player in his prime who is equally as good defensively as he is offensively and a decent backup MI. That is three monumental steps forward in competing in '10.
