    Well this is good to know

    Joey Votto and Ryan Zimmerman are among the ten MLB players with the most trade value, if you ask Dave Cameron of FanGraphs.

    Nothing should be off the table. Trading Votto for another high value player? It should be looked at.

    No.
    It doesnt mean you make a trade, but if something comes up with Votto for Josh Johnson or Jon Lester you should instantly ignore it. You have to entertain all discussions.

    Yes you do, there are certain players that are non tradeable and Votto is that. Well wait, if St. Louis calls and offers Matt Holiday AND Albert, then I might consider it...

    No I am just glad to see him getting some respect, and to know the Reds actually have "wanted" top quality players...

    The only reason I would think of trading Votto would be his breakdown last season, I just think that the depression/pressure issues could return at any time.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Why do you think that?Time heals all wounds,Votto was sick,then his Father died,he'll be fine.My Father died when I was child,as an adult now I don't get deeply depressed at the thought of his death.
