Re: Votto playing in the WBC....
This has been a big conversation in my family the last couple of days. My son (18) trains with someone who is very very involved with the Canadian team and he has asked my son if he would like to go with him and basically spend a week with his family and the team... He knows we are huge Reds fans and of course that would mean possibility spending some time with Votto. The hard thing is my son plays on the High School team and is a senior this year. His season starts the next week after the WBC is over so he would miss a week of practice and a week of school. My son is super excited but I honestly don't know what to do.

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
