Something to think about with Votto is that most Canadians in MLB are historically from BC. That's a long way from Toronto, so they probably wouldn't feel much stronger towards Toronto than any MLB city, if at all. Votto though is not only from Canada, but from the Greater Toronto Area. So the pull to sign with the Blue Jays is probably going to be stronger for him than for other Canadian baseball players. Him leaving is still a bit of a longshot. Like Chucky said, if he played for the Blue Jays he'd be Canada's favourite athlete, after like 300 hockey players. He's already probably Cincinatti's favourite athlete, period.
