Would you be able to keep Votto? If so, I think you have to do it...Rasmus, IMO, will not sustain his level of production nor would be a keeper for you...Votto is better overall than Fielder, so to me you are getting the best player in the deal and if you can keep him, it's def a good deal for you.

Yes, both Prince and Votto are keeper eligible thru the end of the 2013 season. Do it? He also offered me Votto and LaHair for Prince and Austin Jackson, but I'd rather have Austin Jackson than Rasmus I think.

I would do that deal....your getting the better player and loosing Rasmus isnt the biggest loss. I dont think he will keep up at this level plus you have plenty of guys to take his spot....do it

Yeah I would keep Jackson over Rasmus...I say you do it and don;t look back.

I sent a PM to you earlier...if you get a chance, i'd appreciate any feedback.

I noticed Prince has 20 something rbis the last 30 days compared to 7 for Votto ... but do you still do this deal for Votto as the better offensive force the rest of the way/keeper for next year?

I prefer Votto, although you lose a bat in AJ or Rasmus.
I prefer Rasmus, as AJ won't sustain his .418 babip.

But i do it either way to get Votto.
