    What Would it Take To Get You to Trade Votto?

    The title says it all, what would you accept as a minimum to get you to accept a trade of Votto?

    I can't think of any single person I would be willing to trade Votto for straight up.

    It would take a lot for me to deal Votto. It would take a significant overpay by the other team. I wouldn't deal Votto for just slightly more talent, rather it would take a Myers + Hellickson + Price + Jennings haul from Rays. It would have to be a deal so one sided, Bud Selig would step in and prevent it from happening.

    Probably fairly serious brain damage. Sometimes I think I'm close, though.

    I can't think of a deal involving Votto that I'd make. Fans are important and alienating them by trading Votto seems like bad business no matter the return.

    Right now? The other team's farm system. In 8 years? Not a whole lot more than salary relief.

    The only guy I can even think would be debatable would be Trout. Even that is tough because you would have to base the whole trade on 1 year of Trout.

    Would Buster Posey be another person besides Trout in which you would think about doing in this trade? Posey would go off like a monster in Great American Ballpark.

    If the Angels had a good young pitcher (good, meaning a young ace) under control for a long time, maybe Trout and that hypothetical player. Or Harper and that hypothetical player from Washington.

    But neither does, so, nobody probably.
