    It's the $192M Joey makes after turning 32 from 2016-2023 that is likely to become an issue and lead to some lean years down the road. You can't look at the $17M this year in a vacuum, that's about 7% of what the Reds are on the hook for over the next decade.

    Joey is having a fine year, not an elite year but a very good year. Would I like to see him carry the club offensively as we are in the homestretch and in the middle of a 3-6 stinkfest with a tough week ahead - you bet.
    Sure, but what Joey Votto does in 2014 or beyond doesn't make him overrated today does it?

    It's also not our money.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    So did Votto....but just because he won the MVP nearly 3 years ago doesn't mean that he can't be considered overrated or that he's even still a good player....(Josh Hamilton)

    *please note I do not think Votto is over or underrated, just saying that winning an MVP 3 years ago isn't a great reasoning.

    Damn....I thought that was Bob Hamelin.
