    Has to be a roster issue.

"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."

    I would assume this to mean Votto stays?

    Wow, interesting and surprising indeed. Hopefully this is in fact an indicator of a deal around the corner.

    Sweet.... I really didn't see him as a good fit on our roster since day 1. He's not a versatile fielder, except that he can field very poorly at multiple positions, and he is not a good enough hitter (especially for first). Plus he has no good platoon splits. I am surprised though, as I thought the Reds valued him differently then I did. I guess he was just a stop gap after Conine left.
