Re: What Would it Take To Get You to Trade Votto?
I don't think there's a single deal I'd be genuinely happy about. I've been following his career since I was like 14, so Votto may very well be my last totally irrational sports hero. I hang on every at bat, revel in every opposite field smash, go through momentary heartbreak in the rare instance he's fooled by a changeup. I've seen some great players, but there's just something fascinating about Votto's character that makes me feel like I'm watching something that speaks beyond baseball. I wanna see him hang up the spikes in Red and I don't think Posey, Trout, or anyone else could change that. (Unless of course Trout finally embraces fancy coffees)
