    You know we are in a slow part of the off-season

    Joey's got a beard! Alert Heather!

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-bi...4890--mlb.html


    Here is part of the article's analysis of the move and its possible in-season impact.
    Votto's facial hair serves him well, in a Jeff Reardon-sort-of-way. And having a beard, as everyone knows, is worth four or five more home runs a season per 162 games played. It's too bad we'll never see him take this look to Great American Ball Park, even though the Reds dropped their strict no-facial-hair policy after 1999. It would attract too much attention to a guy who just likes to blend in.
    Will this get a sticky?

    I have a shirt like that, but it's shaped differently. Votto's is wider at the top, but mine is wider at the bottom. I'm not sure why.

    Stupid shirt.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Hehe, he had most of that beard at Redsfest (see below) but thanks for thinking of me. Seeing a picture of Joey today helps me forget about the fact that I was sick as all get out yesterday.

    "I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    It's not the beard that's getting my attention...it's that miniature mohawk he seems to be trying for. Weird looking. Oh well, it IS the offseason. *grin*
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
