Congrats on being the very first poster to make my (EDIT: non-existant, apparently) ignore list!
And to be on topic:
Your thoughts on Votto are maddeningly wrong.

What is Votto's Market Value?
5.32 a pound. 5.02 a pound with a coupon.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
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.
Wow....what we have here (atleast this past week) has been: Baes Empty Singles vs. Rally Ending Double-Plays........
Babe Ruth achieved that standard 12 times, Ted Williams did so 11 times, Hank Aaron 7 times, Willie Mays 3 times, Mickey Mantle 3 times, Joe DiMaggio 7 times, Jimmie Foxx 9 times, Stan Musial 7 times, Al Simmons 3 times, Frank Robinson 3 times, Carl Yastrzemski 2 times, Duke Snider two times, etc.
