So just curious what everyone’s thoughts are. Do the Reds pick up Votto’s option if he hits. This is also assuming he plays at least 120 games.
.260 BA, .330 OBP, Hits 20 Home Runs and 70 RBIs, or higher on any of these stats.
If it were me, I bring him back on the option year. Yes, those numbers are not amazing, but they sure are respectable for a player his age.
