    You could argue that but you'd be horribly wrong.

    Plenty of teams would jump at that contract.

    You think plenty of teams would take Votto and agree to pay him everything he's owed? Name three.

    Yankees, Sox, Mariners

    I don't know if you're just spoiled by him or what, but his skill set is one that historically ages extremely well. The contract isn't the albatross many think it is. It sucks he happens to be injured this year, but that doesn't take away that he's among the elite in the game.
