You guys asked why I think he is selfish...
Here is an example..
The Reds have not approached Joey Votto about the other way of getting Yonder Alonso in the lineup moving Votto to left field. He played six games there as a rookie. Does he think could be a good a left fielder?
I think Im a pretty good first baseman, Votto said. And I think one the best attributes as a team is infield defense. We have four very good and obviously as second and third great defenders.
That answers that.
