    Breaks your heart. Some things you just can't understand.

    Why would they since he's under team control though 2021 and not a FA until 2022?

    To make room for Winker and possibly Suarez when Senzel takes over at 3B.

    Courtesy of Brian Kenny: Votto has a .488 OBP since the break. He's tied with Giancarlo Stanton as the best offensive player in baseball with a 165 WRC+. (Weighted Runs Created +)

    Votto is absolutely underpaid.

    Without question.

    I tried to post the video, but couldn't figure it out since it was a Twitter video. He showed a list of the 5 most disciplined hitters in the game. #2- #5 were all within like 0.3 or 0.4 of one another. Votto was over 6 points lower than the #2 guy. It's absurd how good he has become, and he's not slowing down at all (yet).

    That makes sense if that is their plan but who plays left field, Senzel or Suarez? The only negative I see with Duvall is his obp which is very underwhelming. He has become a very good fielder and does give them good power and rbi numbers. At some point you have to stop trading to get prospects or you are always in a rebuilding mode. As a season ticket holder I find it harder and harder to even get people to go to a game with me. I want to see a team that can at least compete soon and not dwell in the division cellar.

    I think one of them could end up at 2nd.
