He has great plate discipline, can hit to all fields, and can perform situational-type hitting. Some sluggers go up there looking to drive the ball out of the field, whereas Votto is fully capable of lacing a timely single.

Trying to enjoy it while it lasts, as I don't think his time in Cincinnati will last much longer.

Doubtful, but Cincinnati isn't a bottom feeder and they are playing in a suddenly worthless NL central. It won't be the case of a great player leaving to go to a team that can win, because he can do it in Cincy.

They should be able to make a solid run at the division this year.

...but I thought Hanley was super bitter about Jose being on the team! This has me excited for two reasons:

1) It fits with the teams color scheme
2) Last time Hanley did this (August 2010 until the end of the season) he went nuts and put up a .370/.440/.605 line. I remember him playing out of his mind at the time, but had to find the stats somewhere. Obviously its all due to the hair.

Sadly, I think the baseball card era and come and gone. It's something that's mainly popular with an older crowd, and that interest will die with them. I work with kids and NEVER hear any of them talk about baseball cards, sadly.

I can't imagine many of the card companies even make a profit. They lost me when when they not only charged more per pack, but included fewer cards.

I'd get a few packs of Bowman Chrome, you can pull pretty rare/expensive cards of prospects fairly easily.

I can't imagine many of the card companies even make a profit. They lost me when when they not only charged more per pack, but included fewer cards.

My dad was a huge collector, even up through my early teen years before he stated to sell most of his stuff which was about 15 years ago. His interest rubbed off on me as a kid (in the 90s). I grew up next door to another guy about my age and we both had a couple of those sports card specific leather three ring binders where you put the sheets that had spots for either 9 or 12 (can't remember if it was 3 or 4 per row) cards. My dad usually made sure I didn't have any cards that were too valuable in any of mine. Baseball was our favorite. We'd spend a few hours in the yard playing home-run derby or playing a made-up simulated-style game where we were each the starting pitcher for our team, and then go inside for a few hours trading and playing made-up games with our baseball cards.

But yeah, sports card collecting in general has gone by the wayside and it did so a while back. I've had a few spells of nostalgia where I'd be somewhere and they'd have a few different boxes of packs of cards and I'd buy a few but it just doesn't have the same feel to it as it use to.

As much as I liked this trade for the Yankees when it went down, I've gotta say, Pineda is not looking good this spring at all. His velocity has diminished to the high 80's/low 90's and he's out of shape and his mechanics are totally messed up. Hopefully he can regain his stuff. Still too early to call it a bad trade in my opinion, though.
