Reds sign Votto for 38 million over 3 years.

Must be some sort of rule that says he's too young to be paid like Adrian Beltre. If there isn't he got screwed. Of course it's about 25 times the yearly salary he made last year and it avoids arbitration. Have to assume he'd have done okay in arbitration though.

Joey Votto reportedly has agreed to a $38 million, three-year contract with the Cincinnati Reds, buying out the first baseman's arbitration years and giving the reigning National League Central champs some short-term budget security. A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press about the deal Sunday on condition of anonymity because the contract will not be official until the 27-year-old Votto passes a physical.
Votto was voted the 2010 NL most valuable player after batting .324 with 37 homers. He drove in 113 runs, led the league in slugging percentage (.600) and led the major leagues in on-base percentage (.424).
