View Full Version : Votto in OF?

Joey Votto is 7 for 8 as a base-stealer this season. Sounds to me like he must have sufficient speed to add "corner outfielder" to his resume; it might get him to the Show more quickly. Anyone know if that has been tried? Surely his arm can't be THAT bad...

No, it can't be, considering he was drafted as a catcher.

yea, but how would that get him to the bigs quicker, with kearns and dunn?

At last glance, we need a 1bman more than an OFer

/\ Agreed.

A base stealing 1st baseman would be fine.

Votto has never been a base stealer before, so I really dont know what is going on this year. His previous career high was 9. He has 7 this year already....just weird.
