Re: If you're Jocketty, just how much would it take for you to trade Votto?
I know it would sound homerish but if I were Jocketty I wouldn't trade him period. At least short of another player that I felt was of his ilk at a more premium defensive position. What I mean by ilk though doesn't just mean production wise, he'd have to bring similar measurables & similar intangibles. Think Joe Mauer, Derek Jeter, Albert Pujols, Chase Utley etc. Not those guys but guys along those lines (ok maybe Mauer).
