    Votto has one more .400+ OBP year left in him. Maybe it's next year, maybe it's 2021, but he has one more.

    So it is written. So it is done.

    I pray that Votto can use his experience and expansive hitting knowledge to tweak his plate approach to be a .800 OPS bat. Basically be 2018 Votto. If he can do that for the next 2 years it'd really help out the offense. A complete belly flop by Votto really hampers the lineup.

    I know itís true. $/WAR told me so.

    What do you think the chances are of a big market team that wants to Win It All this season putting in a waiver claim on Joey Votto??
    Why would Joey Votto put a big market contender over the top?

    A club cannot request irrevocable waivers on any player with a full no-trade clause or 10-and-5 rights. (However, the player can choose to waive those protection rights and accept a trade.)

    The only waivers the Reds can request would be unconditional release waivers. But the Reds would be stuck with paying his full salary in that case.

    Like it, don't like it, Votto is our financial responsibility until the end of his contract. Since that is an absolute fact, we may as well keep him around and see what he does going forward. Maybe he improves, maybe he doesn't. Either way, we may as well enjoy the end of a fantastic career--we have already paid for it after all.

    We're still paying Arroyo and Griffey jr.


    Doesn't mean they belong on the 40.

    I say it will be in 2024. The year the Reds have exercised their option.
