Re: What is Votto's Market Value?
A win on the open market is worth anywhere from 4-6M in a given year. Is Joey Votto going to be worth 4-5 wins a year over his contract? I wouldn't bet against it. I imagine he provides surplus value for the next few years and then declines some over the rest of the deal, with the last few years being where he isn't providing the value of his deal. Overall though, he will get close to being worth the deal unless something unforeseen happens.
