    Votto 8th Best Trade Value: Fangraphs

    Dave Cameron says that Joey Votto has the 8th best trade value of all players in the majors. He is in between Josh Johnson and Jon Lester.

    #8 – Joey Votto, 1B, Cincinnati

    While people talk about what Adrian Gonzalez would command in a trade, imagine if he was just 26 years of age and had three more seasons before he became a free agent. You don’t have to wonder what that would look like – just look at Votto, who is basically the same player, just with a much better contract situation. He’s a beast of a hitter, a true middle-of-the-order slugger who can pound the baseball but doesn’t chase pitches out of the zone. Given the going rate of power hitters, Votto’s should be a huge bargain through 2013. I can’t imagine any scenario where the Reds would trade him at this point.

    The scenario I imagine is the Reds signing him to a decent LTC this offseason.
