Good article/update on Votto.

That, more than anything else, is why Jocketty traded for Rolen.Votto gave Rolen the ultimate compliment.
“I got everything I needed from him playing beside him. I learned a tremendous amount. You can always learn, but the two or three years I had with him were not wasted. I tell you what: He changed my path as a player. He was a shining example of the kind of player I want to be. Simply because of how quiet he was and how respected he was throughout baseball.”
