With all the trade rumors going around this off-season Cincinnati Reds fans sometimes forget to talk about the players who are not being traded. Like 1B Joey Votto who just won the Tip O’Neil Award. There has been a lot of talk by reporters about how people expected more out of the Reds star and I am not one of those people. I think after coming off a injury Joey Votto did great and I expect it only to get better as the years go by. With all the huge contracts signed by other teams this off-season I am very happy to have Joey Votto as the Reds main player. He will produce every year without any concern at all. Congratulations Joey Votto, you deserve it.

Joey Votto is the MVP of all of Canadian sports, but some don't even think he's the best player on his team.
