If Bruce ever learns to stop trying to pull everything, and concentrate on just putting the bat on the ball like Votto does, then the Reds could have a Morneau/Mauer-like duo, and the Reds would make the post-season just about every year. If the coaches feel like he can, sign him.
But I'd like to see both get locked up. It might actually be easier to sign Bruce right now, but keeping Votto is probably a higher priority since that would define how much money they have to work with Bruce.
I thought the Tulo comparison was a little high. Maybe Bruce can be like him, but he's not there yet. Upton had a pretty bad year but has the highest ceiling out of all of them.
