From Fay, quoting Jocketty:
On signing Votto: “I think Joey would like to stay. We haven’t opened up dialogue yet. But, hopefully, we’ll be able to sign and keep him here a while.”
This shocked me. I don't think Jocketty says he thinks Votto would like to stay without having some reason to believe it. I have been convinced Votto will leave. This is the first intimation that maybe he won't. Could just be a throwaway line from WJ that carries no real weight vis-a-vis Votto's priorities, or it could be an indicator that the team has a real shot at keeping him around. Which would be a game changer for the franchise, big time.
