I have another person that lives in my head. He's the guy that worries about everything obsessively. I usually listen a little bit to what he says but I don't let him get the best of me.
One thing he's been saying is "omg, if Votto doesn't get his power back, we are so screwed". So I'd love to see Votto play a bit in the WBC and launch a couple HRs over the left field wall like he always did. Then, I can tell that little man to shut up.
And to paulrichjr, let your son go. Like many have said, a week out of the second half of his senior year doesn't matter (my 3 kids had long since check out of school by then). And I'm sure his coach would understand what an opportunity this is. It would be one thing if he took a week off to go to Cancun and watch the Girls Gone Wild thing. But this is where he can get immersed in a high level baseball and live and breathe it. What a cool thing.
